Because I Can’t Walk and Chew Gum at the Same Time

In a feat of unequivocal grace, I broke my foot today… metatarsal five to be exact.

Who breaks their foot walking…

on a field trip with 40 third graders?

I walked a mile on it after it was broken.

Probably not smart.

But I’m stubborn determined.

“Hey, look on the bright side,” I told myself.

“It’s time to get rolling on that 2010 deductible anyway.”

Oh My Word! Bless your heart!! It looks like you got a walking cast, so hopefully it won't slow you down too much!! I hope you get some rest and relaxation this weekend!!

Proud Parents of Halainah Grace said...

Oh no! That is something that I would do. I hope that you are not in too much pain. I'm sending you positive thoughts that you heal very quickly!

Lynnette Kraft said...

Oh, you poor thing. Hope it heals quickly.

Kristi J said...

Pineapple Princess said...

Yes! Yes! Come back, Kristi!
We miss you terribly!!

Adventure Mom Janna said...

Oh no! I love your sense of humor about it though.

I think I could break my foot daydreaming about that open faced sandwich of yours. Yum!

Enjoy being waited on hand and foot. All 24 hours of it:)

Bobbi said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!! OUCH!!! You are tough to have walked on it more!! UM, I could have done the same thing too!! So could my daughter. We totally can relate!!

Oh, I am so sorry! I hope you are feeling okay now.
Blessings,

I am so sorry that you fell and got a boo boo. But I am glad you have a sense of humor about it! I don't think I am very good at that.

I fell on the ice a few years ago and broke my elbow and now I am so careful not to go out when it is icy if I can help it.

I hope you will heal quickly and not have too much pain.

God Bless You!

Mighty M said...

Ouch! Hang in there!!

Hannah said...

You poor thing. Now, let me give you some advice....It HURTS..Got that? IT HURTS...you need to sit for many hours at a time. Your husband needs to wait on you hand and foot and bring you sweet little get well presents (jewelry, a new lens, or maybe some more Le Creuset) Got it??

I hope you feel better soon (wink!)


PS...I know you would never really do that, but it would be fun huh?

CFMama said...

Ouch! That's a rough bone since it is your foot it is probably going to take a while to heal. Gives you a good reason to put your feet up though, right?

Will and Aileen said...

Be sure to take advantage of your injury and let others take care of you for a little while! Hope you're healed up in no time.

Megan said...

That stinks! Well maybe you can get some much deserved rest and relaxation! I hope you have a quick recovery!

Angie said...

Bless your heart! I'll be praying for you. You don't know how much it means to get your msg that you have been praying for Mom. She went home yesterday and is doing pretty good. It will just take time to heal, and she has the best attitude. Thanks so much, and I pray you have a speedy recovery.

Wanda said...

Yikes, that's not good. Glad you were able to laugh (well, sort of)about it.

Heel well. (Does this mean being served in bed and back massages.Hmmmm.....)

:)

Gardenia said...

ouch ! I broke my foot while jogging -- good ole' college days. you realize (when your foot is in a boot or cast) how much you use your foot! get well soon.

Jaimee said...

Oh my gosh girl! You have got to be more careful!!! However, you are always looking on the bright side, that's what I love about you! I wish you a speedy recovery...

Morgan said...

Ouch! So sorry to hear that. I managed to shatter my leg when I tripped while walking. I spent 6 months recovering.

Hope you heal quickly!

Leah and Maya said...

oh too true, so much nicer to have a good story to go with your injury!

Tiffany said...

Oh my goodness! Praying for a speedy recovery!

Laura said...

Oh no you poor thing!! I hope it heals quickly. Totally had to laugh about the deductible thing, we usually say the same thing come the second week of Jan. :)

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

OUCH!

I am sorry, girl.

Laurie said...

Ooh my! So sorry, but the big question is......did you have your toe nails painted? I always had a fear of being in a wreck, breaking my foot and not having perfect painted toe nails! Guess what happened Nov 28 198?....yep and not only were they not painted, they were CHIPPED! OMG, horrors. I have been in therapy ever since! Hope you have a speedy recovery!

Steph said...

OH NO!!! That is awful!! I hope it heals quickly. I sprained my ankle many years ago and walked on it for about 3 miles. When I sat down, it swelled so horribly that I couldn't put any weight on it and my dad had to carry me upstairs. My leg looked like a tree trunk!

M3 said...

Yeowch!!!

Pineapple Princess said...

Thanks you guys so much for your comments and prayers! You totally cheered me up!!

He & Me + 3 said...

You poor thing you sound like me. I sprained mine last friday afternoon and still did the shread friday night...went to the ER in the middle of the night because it hurt so bad. hope it heals fast.

Katrina B. Smith said...

God Bless your heart! You are following me so I thought I would stop by & see some of your craziness too :) Thanks for the sweet comment, I try my best!

There are many of us that can't walk & chew gum at the same time, so smile :)

Cop Mama said...

Oh, what a bummer! Sorry about your foot!

But I must say, you have the most positive attitude of anyone I know who breaks their foot :-)

Hope it heals soon!

Jamie @ Six Bricks High said...

Oh bummer! Hope you heal quickly. Well at least it will be a memorable field trip.

Terri said...

Bummer!!!! What a trooper you are! I would of fell to my knees and they would of had to take me out in an ambulance! lol

The Tanimoto Trio said...

That does not sound like fun you poor thing just what you need a broken foot to chase after a little one. Hang in there!!!

Janice (5 Minutes for Mom) said...

Oh my goodness!!!!!!! That is terrible! SO sorry!!!!

Jules said...

Oh my goodness! Hope it heals fast. That sounds like something I would do.

Mommy said...

Oh so sorry girl! I hope you heal fast and it's easy to do the normal things.... hang in there!

Bunch of Barrons said...

Sorry to hear that! Hope it heals up fast!

Pam, mom, honey, said...

Pineapple Princess said...

Yes, I'm laughing too! It takes skillz to break a foot while walking! Ha!

demp5 said...

The lengths that some parents will go to so that their tweens do not feel like they are the only awkward ones -sheesh! I am only teasing you :) I will be praying for a super speedy recovery. You have to be able to keep up with Beach Bunny.
XO,
Meghan

Amanda said...

McMurrays said...

Oh No! I hope you are not in too much pain. You are such an involved awesome mom to go along on the field trip! Will be praying you recover quickly!

marianne said...

So sorry... if you're like me when things like this happen, your first thought is, "I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS". Hope you heal quickly!!!
