well, yesterday did not go as planned. actually it did until about noon when i stepped off the back garage step and fell (read: tripped by stealthy ninjas). once to the doctor the verdict was that i have broken my heel and another bone in my foot. the real bummer is i’m off that foot for 3 months. obviously there will be no 1/2 marathon for me, but i’ll be there ready to cheer zach on. also trying to do this with a toddler is a lot different than last time, when we just had dogs.i think what adds insult to injury as well is that it’s my right foot, which a lot of folks know as my good foot since i broke my left ankle and foot pretty seriously about 5.5 years ago, so i can’t drive. that makes a lot of what i do during the day impossible to accomplish.there are a couple of upsides. first, our emergency plan worked like a charm. zach grabbed me, auntie karen grabbed our car and zelda and it all went off as smoothly as we could have hoped. second, once in the desk chair, i can roll around the house pretty well. also grandma kitty has gracious offered to come help us out for a while. and since i won’t be running and will be forced to be more still, i might as well complete the rosetta stone french program zach got me two years ago for christmas.
finally, a big shout out to our friend bob who dropped me off a cup of coffee today and to wonderful mr. z who is juggling all the tasks of our house and two parents with aplomb.
