Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.

p.s.
You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

My Souvenirs

My day at the hospital wasn't a total waste. I did get to bring home two nice (and very expensive) souvenirs.

First, this lovely xerox copy of my foot x-ray.

Now if it weren't for the fact that it was my foot and that I knew without a doubt that it was my baby toe that hurt like crazy I would never guess from looking at this picture that it was broken. Guess it's a good thing I'm not a radiologist. Since the doctor looked at it and said that it was a very definite break. Or maybe she couldn't actually see anything either but wanted to make me feel like it was worth my time (and money) to get my foot x-rayed so she just told me it was broken.

My second souvenir is this lovely new fashion footwear that I will be sporting for the next few weeks.

It's possibly the most expensive single shoe I will ever buy. But to be fair, despite it being less than beautiful, it actually really is quite functional. I have hobbled around with it on and with it off and my toe does hurt less when I walk with it on. Imagine that, something that does exactly what it is designed to do. So I've been trying to walk with it on anytime I get up from my perch on the couch.

Next time I'll just get the tee-shirt instead.

Ouch! I see the break. Looking at it makes me queezy. I hurt for ya! Glad you can look at the "good" side of the whole ordeal. ;)

only your kids are supposed to have these kinds of adventures! then again, it's a little less panic-inducing to have it be you, instead of them, especially long term (i still freak out about when jonah fell through the deck stairs).

Very fashionable!

Yes, I think the T-shirt might be a little less expensive and much more practical in the long run. I hope you are feeling better. I hate breaks!!!!!!!
