Oops I did it again…
And I don’t mean any of Britney’s paparazzi-loving escapades.
Nope, I did this:
Question, class: Which knee looks abnormal?
Here, does this help?
The curved lines on the right (my left knee) represent the natural curve of your knee…well, just where the heck are they in my other leg?!
Wanna know what happened?
So do I!
All I know is that yesterday afternoon while I was at work, I squatted down to the floor to pick up a pen I had dropped and I felt a stabbing pain just to the medial side of my right knee….so bad it knocked me over! The same thing happened again at home last night, but as long as the knee was in a normal position, it didn’t bother me. Then this morning I did something to put all my weight on my right leg and it buckled!
I spent any free time I had at work today like this:
And although the swelling has gone down a bit, to be on the safe side, I’m now sporting one of these:
You know, I hear knee braces are on their way up in the fashion industry…yep, right up there with scrunchies and head gear!
On the bright side, it seems the stars were aligned ever so slightly or maybe the gods pitied my accident-prone existence because:
A.) We had a nice slower-paced day at work.
Good for rest….good for ice…and I actually got to leave a little early today so I ran by Sam’s Club on my way home (because that’s what foodies do when they need cheering up…they go grocery shopping) and restocked my supply of produce!
Woo hoo! Time for more brussel sprouts and pineapple bowls!
B.) I came home to a surprise in my mailbox.
Not only did my two favorite magazines show up on the SAME day, but I was actually excited for the first time to see the “junk mail” newspaper in my box.
Why, you ask?
I’ve been saying we needed a Panera Bread for years…at long last, I will finally have Focaccia Asiago bread and Chicken Tortilla Soup only a 15 minute drive away from my house.
And finally…C.) I found a surprise package waiting for me on my doorstep!
I came home to the sweetest package from one of my favorite bloggers:
I sent her a few things I knew she would love about a week ago, and she sent me the best “thank you gift”. Can I get a heck yeah for Peanut Honey Pretzel Luna Bars?! I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for this flavor!
And seriously, how cute are these thank you cards?
Debbie, you’re the best! And you have to tell me where you got these!
Fresh produce and mail…what can I saw, I’m easy to please
So, I may be the world’s record holder for accidental self-inflicted injuries like
throwing out my back while getting a book out of a bookcase and I messing up my knee by picking a pen up off the floor, but I have a plan…
If Jimmy Kimmel can do it, so can I!
And luckily, Debbie’s already got my collection started:
Ohh, don’t you just want to reach up to the screen and pop them?
Here, try this instead!
Now, who has a good relationship with their local UPS/FedEx delivery man?
Please tell me there are others out there as accident prone as me!
