So it is actually January 6th when I started typing this, but I figure it will be January 7th by the time I post , hence the title.

I have been meaning to post for a couple of days, but keep forgetting for some reason I don't quite know how to explain.  I'm not even sure at this point what it was I wanted to post about, but since I wanted to post about something, I guess today works as a topic as well.

Today was an okay day as far as, I was in a pretty good mood all day and managed to keep myself reasonably entertained.  Only problem was I managed to pull a muscle or sprain something in my right foot around noon.  I was heading to the kitchen, attempting to walk the whole way which is only a few feet so it really shouldn't have been a problem, and just a foot from the door way to the kitchen I lost my balance spun around completely because I landed face first in the kitchen, half way in the kitchen and half way in the living room, and during this fall I heard what sound like very loud rice crispys and their snap crackle pop sound they make.  And then I was in a lot of pain laying on the floor for a few minutes.  Kevin left for work sometime after 11 and since I am pretty sure I didn't break anything, I didn't want to call him, but I still felt really stupid for having the fall in the first place and then being stuck on the floor until I could get past the pain to move back to the couch.  So I spent the day on the couch (which is normal), leg propped up, with an ice pack on it until it was no longer cold because I couldn't bring myself to crawl back to the kitchen and try to get another one.  I have never been so happy that we have a small fridge.  The ice packs are normally all on the top door shelf, but there was one on the bottom door shelf and I was just barely able to reach it when I stretched as far as I could without actually standing.  Fortunately I have my laptop with iTune and my iPod so I used music to help keep the pain at bay.

As of now, I can get around on my feet if assisted, otherwise is it basically all still crawling, hopefully it won't take too long to heal.  I am so glad we live in a single story home, if that had happened on stairs I do not even want to think of what condition I would be in right now.  But still happy, still trying to be healthy, I've always had weak ankles and in college managed to sprain one or the other every year so I am very familiar with the healing process, just one of those things you have to keep in mind and try not to do anything that would be risky.
