So I'm sure you are wondering why I have all this free time to sit down and peruse Pinterest when I have a garage full of boxes of things that I haven't seen in four years, unpacking/arranging my home, cleaning, selling some things, etc. Well, 3 days after moving in I had a little incident with a ladder. Actually, it was me and the ladder together that had a little incident with the tile floor. You don't want to know the details, or very many of the gruesome details of the surgery I will be having in a few hours where I will have a bone graft and multiple screws in my foot and ankle that will be attached to a rod on the outside of my foot. I will continue to sit here with my leg elevated for the next few weeks and use crutches to get around a little bit, and probably continue to ask Adrian/kid's/neighbors/family, and quite possibly, strangers, for help when I absolutely need it.
In other news, Adrian and Payton attended a Daddy-Daughter Dance at the Elementary School on Saturday evening. They enjoyed the dance/crafts/photos and dinner afterward, and Payton thought it was the greatest night ever. She did instruct him that next year he needs to get her a wrist corsage and she will get him a flower for his shirt. Apparently many of the girls were in glittery heels and some with tiaras, and one daddy-daughter was even dropped off in a limo. Pretty fancy. I think Payton looked darling and we did what we could with a mom who could barely make it upstairs to help her pick out an outfit, and with a neighbor who came to the rescue with barrettes/hair bows because we haven't unpacked any of that yet and really have no idea where they are.
As a last message, I am overdue on catching up with a phone call to many of you, so if you want to email me or leave a comment with your phone number, I will probably have some free time in the next few weeks to make some long overdue phone calls.
