Pop Goes The Ankle

Yesterday was so beautiful that I decided to go on a walk / run with the dogs outside.  I laced up my running shoes, leashed up the dogs, and away we went.  We made it about 70 yards when I tripped, felt something pop in my ankle, and fell flat on my face.

To be more accurate, I fell flat on my phone.


After screaming a choice word (sorry to any neighbors who had their windows open yesterday morning) I tried to walk it off, but my ankle wasn’t having it.  I think it is just a minor sprain, no big deal, just slightly swollen and slightly bruised. Nothing a few days’ rest won’t fix.  Until then, I will be sporting the super cool pimp limp at work. 

As soon as my wits came back I started to worry about Margaret.  But, as the day progressed, the kicks felt more pronounced than ever, as if to say, “Geeze, Mom.  I am fine.  Stop freaking out already.” 


Breakfast was overnight oats (1/3 C of oatmeal, yogurt, and milk and 1 T chia seeds mixed together and put in the fridge for at least an hour or up to overnight) topped with banana, almond butter, and fruit spread.


I was craving only cold things for lunch, so cottage cheese and pineapple won plus half a bologna sandwich and cantaloupe for an afternoon snack.

Dan (stealthfully) reheated leftovers from the night before for dinner. 


We ate them while watching Newsroom.  The pile of mashed potatoes only looks the same size as Dan’s head because of the angle, I swear. 


Dessert was candy I couldn’t resist while picking up the gender reveal device. 


This piƱata has either pink of blue candy in it and we don’t get to bust it open until Saturday. 


Half of me wants to open it early to find out what Margaret is. The other half wants to open it to eat the candy. The chances of this lasting until Saturday are slim to none.

Thought for the day


  1. Oh no!! So sorry you fell! I did the same thing to my phone last summer. :) Glad Margaret was kicking way to assure you that he/she was ok. :)

    Are you going to get another EVO?

  2. Hope you are feeling better! I fell when preggers and although I know I caught myself and didn't hit my tummy at all I freaked. My doc reassured me the baby is very safe and cozy and it would take a lot to hurt them. Hope today goes better!

  3. Sorry to hear about your ankle! I know how horrible ankle sprains can be! Hope that it's just a minor one and you will be back to normal very soon. The last two times I sprained my ankle I had to get surgery because I got subluxing peroneal tendons, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone! Glad to here the little one is okay :)
