The holidays are coming a little too quickly for me. Especially since my back has been so bad, making me move in slow motion. Tonight was the real kicker... I am currently laying on the couch waiting patiently for Tommy to get home from work so I can drag myself over to the ER and get an exray on my ankle. I was getting Rachel out of the car. She was sound asleep (thank goodness) when I stepped back away from the door and somehow managed to fall flat on my back with the baby still in my arms! Luckily, I had my napsack on my back so it cushioned the fall a bit, and thru it all, Rachel stayed asleep!!! in the meantime, I heard a "crack" sound in my ankle, so there is a really good chance something broke in there. Not sure if its a good thing or a bad thing, but because my back has been as bad as it has, I have been numb on my left side... so I'm thinking if my back wasn't out, my ankle would be hurting a heck of a lot more than it is! At the moment, I don't really feel anything. but when I try to move the ankle, I definitely feel pain... so we'll see...
Other than all the medical drama around here, everything else is pretty good. Rachel is gorgeous, and still keeping us laughing every day... tonight she was having an absolute giggle fit at my mom's house. This, naturally got me and my parents all laughing too... it was pretty funny. If I didn't know better, I would think the kid was on a sugar high! But as son as we got home (and I got myself off the front lawn) I put her into her crib and she was asleep almost before she hit the matress... she is just too cute.
