condensation, and Ace bandage...fun...
I need to be able to move quickly, to chase, to catch, and to carry! A sprained ankle is not an option!
Going back we were at the store today just picking up a couple things, but doing a shelf check too. Aedyn and I were "sneaking" up on Jake and Jaron and as I ran the last couple of steps, I felt my ankle roll, I tried to compensate and have given myself a medial ankle sprain.
It's a pretty intense pain at first and I ended up softening Aedyn's landing as I continued to the floor myself. Some breathing techniques for pain management while I tried to calm Aedyn's tantrum at Jake putting him in the shopping cart. I managed to internalize everything until we reached the van.
OWWW. Probably shouldn't have walked, but having to have Jake go get me a wheelchair...I let my pride win that one. I'm making up for it now and will take a conservative path for the next 24 hours or so.
It's already feeling much better, but I know that's due to meds, ice, elevation and REST.

This is one time that I know I have to take care of myself immediately, otherwise this will take months and not just weeks to heal. But I hate these lessons.
So tonight will be frozen lasagna and movies. Hopefully the boys won't get to rambunctious (fingers crossed) and we can just chill. And maybe get a few blog posts written so I'm not worried about getting behind all the time...that'd be nice...
