5th Metatarsal


I just realized the date of my last post, April 27th. Later that same night, I fell and broke my foot, multiple fractures to my 5th metatarsal. How quickly everything changed.

It has been a rocky 3 weeks. I am trying to see the good in things, more time spent on the floor with my baby, no grocery shopping! (But that means I have to eat the food my husband picks, which can be a little scary.)

And, with all of this I have realized how strong our family is. My husband has been great at doing all of the things I can't. My kids have been very patient and flexible, even when we can't get out to do our normal daily favorites.

Tomorrow is my biggest art show of the year. I am probably not as ready as I should be, but I am prepared to take lots of orders. Whatever the day brings, I will be happy just to prop myself up in my big director's chair and sit in the sun.

wow how encouraging. you know, your post really shows your depth of character. i like how you try to see the best in a situation, pointing to the fact that your injury has shown you new sides to the unity that lives in your family. very nice.
have a wonderful art show, i wish you much success! i'd say break a leg... but in this case, i think you already did enough damage. :)
