Not good!

So I've been trying to clear some perenials out of my garden to make room for some vegetables in one of them and convert a second garden into a patio. I've posted on MSS and asked friends: "Do you need perenials? Come and dig them up."

Yesterday, my friend Susan came over with her kids to get some. Adam, her eight month old baby started crying, so I offered to carry her last pot (think large) to her van so she could hold Adam. Everything was going fine until I stepped off the curb and fell, twisting my ankle and skinning my knee. I got up after a minute and my ankle felt fine, but while I was making supper, it started to feel worse. So, following the advice of my ER nurse friend, Marlo, I'm icing it and taking Advil.

And, we only had Dora bandaids in the house, so I looked pretty cool at Austin's baseball game last night, let me tell you!

And of course, today, I have plans to go to Winnipeg this afternoon with the Creative Communicators from ROX for a matinee, shopping and supper at a Thai restaurant. So I guess I'll be limping around Old Navy...

Hope you have a great (an spastic accident-free) day!

Oh NO!!!!!! That sucks, Leigh! RICE - rest, ice, compression, elevation - is what I was always told when I sprained my ankle (too much cross country running). Hugs!

Oh no!! Not so much fun. I hope your leg is doing better now.
