This Little Piggy.....Stayed...Home...

Yesterday....
I should have simply....stayed in bed....
I got sucked down the Vortex ....the Rabbit Hole Creates...
I was Determined to get the Massive Church Crucifix Up...
So I tore into the Southwest Corner...
 If...anything could go wrong.... it did....I called John up to help manage the Hanging cupboard...and Christ....
What a fiasco...
My drill...died.... in the middle of  Everything....and wouldn't hold a charge....
The cupboard was crooked.... so after John left...I tried to get it straight....It fell on top of me.... It was like an Avalanche....
As I tried to keep my face from going through the glass.... everything behind me....fell at my feet....I couldn't move....as I was holding the heavy cupboard...in by arms....too high....and completely unbalanced....
When I finally set it down....on top of all sorts of debris....I couldn't get  the screws out of the back.... When I got the screws out...and struggled with the Old cupboard....back on the wall... the screws... I was putting back in...got twisted in the wall fabric...and pushed the cupboard...back on top of me, again....instead of going into the wall.... and...it was the same mess..all over again....
I pulled all of the fabric down.... and...swore....ENOUGH!!!
Then....Saving the Day....was Amy....she brought out Champagne.... and we sat in the Green House... and relaxed...
Miss Audrey popped in...and we all had a nice visit...
I left a bit of a mess.... but thought...
I'll get it....tomorrow....
ENOUGH!!!
I thought....I'd treat John...to his Favorite Pizza....for being such a good sport....helping me....{it was UGLY....getting Christ...on the wall...oh my...}
So...Amy and I went to the Star....and ate supper...and had a Great Visit!
Then... when I took John his Pizza....
The Hounds were barking and greeting me.... I was going down the stairs... with...the Big Pizza Box...in Tow....I missed the last three steps....
Made a Three Point Landing!
 Elbow...Left Side...and Foot....
I think....I broke my foot....
but....I never dropped the Pizza...!
I hobbled in to John....
handed him his pizza...
and....got sick....
I was shaking...
didn't even get out of my clothes....just went to bed...
put my foot up....
and hurt...all night...
I Think....all my Little Piggies....on my Left Foot...are
Staying Home...
Unless... the swelling goes WAY Down...
No Botanic Garden Show....for me... : ( :( : (
John thinks it's just a bad sprain....
and...if it's broken...doubt they could do anything....anyway....
Some Days....
It's Best...to Simply...
Stay...in Bed...
Love, to ya...

Dang Darlin' - get some ice on it and elevate with a compression bandage/ wrap. I took a spill like that in the weee hrs a while back and the ice made all the difference. YOU have to go to that show - it's inspiring and fun folks.....sad but true you may have to wear some sensible shoes ; )
AWESOME EVENING - Thanks so much we'll do it again soon!!!

When I broke my ankle they actually put a cast on for 6 wks so maaaaaaybe you should go get it xrayed. Did you ever think of wearing a helmet & shin guards when you work? Sorry you're missing the show & hope you feel better. Jan

oh...Amy...I was BAREFOOTED!!!! no heels.... John did the same trick...a couple of years ago... there is something...about those last three steps!
My entire left side....looks like I fell on a pile of grapes...
I so enjoyed our time together...
THANK YOU!!!
LOVE YA!!!

no...insurance...so..I'm tuffing it out...
and...trust me, Jan...they don't make enough body armour....to keep this old gal...whole...
I'm keeping it up....and HOPE....the swelling will go down enough...so I can go to the show.... I have been looking So Forward to it....
Told Allyson...she'll have to drive...no way...can I operate a clutch....
I hope.... the swelling comes down...enough...so I can get a shoe on.... grrrrr....
Love...to ya!

I sure hope you get better soon. Last week I was standing on a $5 chair putting my tarp up and it broke. I was ok but I could have easily broken my elbow falling. I think ice will help a lot.
