How I Spent My Easter Weekend
If this just doesn't beat all.
Rick was going to help my friends move into their new house, so I was to watch two additional kids so the move would go smoothly.
It's a GORGEOUS 78 degrees outside, so Zack (3), Britney (6), and Meghan (2) decided to go to the neighborhood park. It's not that far off, walking distance from the house, across a big field.
Halfway across the field, Meghan decides it's too much for her 2-year old legs, so I pick her up to carry her.
About 5 seconds later, I step in a hole.
Instinct kicked in, and I held Meghan up so she wouldn't hit the ground, and took it all in the ankle.
And of course I don't seem to do anything without doing it BIG, so it's not a sprain. It's broken.
So I just got back from spending several hours in the ER. I'm on crutches now, HOPEFULLY to a walking cast on Monday when the swelling goes down.
I hope like heck the Easter Bunny brings chocolate tomorrow!
