I have to say, this week flew by for me. Even though work is stressful right now. It isn't the kids. It's my co-workers. Why can't we all just get along? I'm tired of the drama. I am also tired of explaining over and over again what is wrong with my foot. I may have to make up something interesting because "I injured it and I don't know how, but it wouldn't stop hurting so the doctor gave me this cast" is simply too boring. I LOVE my new cast. For the first time in two months I am completely pain free. I didn't realize how much pain I was in until it was gone! It's amazing how chronic pain can be so draining. I have many topics that I want to blog about, but when I sit down to write them, nothing comes. My husband and I have decided to stop going to couple's counseling for now. It was a mutual decision. Neither of us felt like we were really getting anything out of it. I think it was simply a bad fit with the therapist. Scheduling it was a nightmare too. Do you know there was only one hour out of an entire week that we could find to meet? Unless the therapist wanted to come in at seven in the morning or eight o'clock at night(she didn't). Joe's schedule should calm down starting next week when his midterm class begins. I'm looking forward to having him home more. That's all I got right now. I'll leave you with this cute story about one of the kids.
Today during story time I was showing the kids my "cast" and explaining what it did. I told them it was a special boot that kept my foot from moving around so it could heal. I showed them the air pump that came with it, and explained how I could pump it with air to make it more snug around my foot. After demostrating this, and showing them the "balloons" that are inside of the boot for this purpose, one of the kids raised their hands and said
"Hey Miss Michelle! Your boot has airbags, just like my Mommy's car!"
