We started off down the parking lot hill. I got a good grip on the rope and started sliding. Then it got going too fast and we couldn't slow down and I was head straight for the fence post. If I held on to the rope I would hit the post and if I had let go I would've hit the post. I hit with the outside of my foot first and my entire body just crunched my foot into the post then I flipped down the hill. My glasses, toboggan, ear warmers and headband all flew off and Landon came running to get it all. I couldn't help it but I just started crying. I was so mad at myself. I got down to the house and put ice on it (actually frozen peaches) I just couldn't believe it. We are getting married in 7 weeks and it takes 6 weeks to heal. We prayed over it, for quick healing, but if I am being honest, I just kept getting mad. In the middle of it all I kept thinking how horrible it is going to be to move and pack and prepare for the wedding with a broken foot. I kept thinking how dumb I was for doing it, but then again, if I had it to do over, I probably would. I got on Facebook last night and saw all these posts and saw that other people (lots of other people) were doing the same thing. It made me feel like I wasn't so dumb for sliding on cardboard behind the golf cart.
After a while and especially when I woke up this morning I played it over and over in my head and I couldn't help but think that it could've been so much worse. I could have hit my head or broken something worse than my foot, It is going to be healed before the wedding, and even if it's a week, it is still before.
I know it hasn't even been 24 hours yet, but I am getting "Cabin Fever" not because of the weather, but because I can't go anywhere or do anything on my stinking foot! I guess it's a good time to write and get some homework done. I hope everyone is having fun in the snow (ice? snow?) and staying safe!
