Getting old!!

As I was scanning the radio I found that the "oldies" station was back.

I heard something that made me feeel SICK!!! When did Huey Lewis and the News become oldies music???

Then I did the math and realized that I AM OLD!!!!

Wow does this suck big time. Where has the time gone. It seems like yesterday that I was riding a big wheel and getting into trouble.

Somebody help!

Ok so I had a doctor's appointment today, my first since the cast was removed. So the doc says does your ankle hurt I say no he asks me to move it around so I did. Ok, so why was I not allowed to return to work?? It would have been different if I had a "real" job, but working for my mother-in-law is not a real big deal. But the MOUNTAIN of work that awaited me was!!

I went back anyway and resumed driving a few days later but seriously what the heck. He apparently had no idea what chaos my life was in since that awful afternoon.

I still am trying to get back in the swing of things. I hated having other people do my stuff. Although I greatly appreciated the effort from my husband. Having to take care of me, Lindsay, laundry and all other kinds of crap sure took a toll on him. He thanks me every chance he gets for taking care of all that stuff because he didn't realize how much I really did until I couldn't.

Ding Dong the cast is GONE.....

Yes, the cast is off!!! The skin underneath is quite nasty. I feel like some type of alien being. Once the skin was able to "breath" it looked as if it was bubbling and cracking and of course I was shedding all over the carpet. Guess I'll be vacuuming tomorrow.

The doctor said not to get it wet until tomorrow so the long awaited shower will have to wait a few hours more. I have to say it feels very weird and I am having a small problem adjusting back to the non-cast wearing days but I guess I'll get there.

Wish me luck as I try to drive again.
