It's Offical

I got back to an exercise program last week. I got on the treadmill, you remember the one that I have been avoiding since my ankle started bothering me. I decided to take it slow and only do a mile. Well, let me tell you once the mile was done, my ankle was on fire. So I got off my a** and called the doctor.

He was able to see me this morning. I'm figuring that I have a really bad sprained ankle...... NOPE! He thinks that it is a frayed Achilles Tendon. But he is sending me for an MRI to make sure that it isn't torn. I also now have a sleep stint, therapy 3 times a week for 4 weeks and meds to take. Not to mention that I need to go back and see him again in 2 weeks. The only time in my life that I have ever been off my feet was when I broke my leg when I was 17. I had crutches and didn't care back then. Now I need to be off my feet as much as possible, with all this other stuff. Man, this is going to suck, big time!!!! Yes, I am pouting!!! I'm the one that takes everyone else to therapy and doctors appointments and is encouraging when there is some type of new test that needs to be performed. If I could stomp my foot I would.......grrrrr! Alright, tantrum time is over. LOL!

Like I don't have enough craft ideas to do, I go out and buy one of those pre-printed things on material. You know that ones that you just cut out and sew together. It is a really kewl re-useable shopping bag. *sorry I just realized that this is a rant post* Since I am still very new to this whole sewing thing I thought that this would give me great practice. I sewed wonderfully straight 1/2" seams. Then I realize that the material is crooked.... not my fault but the pattern on the material is crooked and now it is bunched up. I had my mom look at it and even she said it was my fault.... I was ready with the seam puller.... but she said no worries. Once the bag is together I will post pictures!

I will post my fit as a farm hand tomorrow.

My monsters and I found an awesome site thanks to Annette over at The Ward House she was speaking about re-purposing and gave a video from an awesome site The ThreadBangers! We found a site that was making underware...... It is from CLAREBARE.COM. She is the kewlest! When I grow up I want to be able to sew like her!

Gotta Run.... Hobble.... Crawl..... LOL!
