All day yesterday I kept thinking it was Thursday. I really knew it was Wednesday but it’s been a long week. Today felt like Thursday though, so that’s good.
Today was one of those days where I felt very busy but I didn’t get a lot done. It’s hard to get a ton done though because of my ankle. I really hurt it Monday, then tweaked it a bit on Tuesday and again this afternoon. At this point it feels worse than it ever has, before it only hurt when I moved in a certain way. Now, I get moments when it’s achy for no reason other than my foot isn’t elevated or even just because. I wear a brace most of the day, taking it off occasionally to let my foot breathe while elevating it. At night I wear a neoprene wrap that keeps me from moving around too much. Last week I woke up in pain several times as I moved my foot in apparently bad positions. The wrap is perfect for sleeping, it isn’t too tight as to cut off circulation like a normal brace might overnight. But it’s not so loose that it still keeps me from hurting the ankle while asleep. I should probably ice it more but we just have flat ice packs and that’s just not working. I need to get some frozen peas, those bags are perfect for ankles.
Oh, and my NaNo project is up to 14,000 words. Yay me!
Today, I am thankful for Sully and Boo. It’s been a tough week in many ways but I really enjoyed our time together today. I am also really thankful that I am caught up with laundry. I am sure it seems an odd thing to be thankful for but it’s taken me weeks to get back on track.
