Contest Winner and Potato Foot

Congratulations!!!

Seville83 has left a new comment on your post "A Giveaway!":

And I'll be making the produce bags for a friend of mine too. He's going to love them :)

Send me an email at mamagay74 at comcast dot net to get the ball rolling on your new stamp.

Also, I thought you all might like to know that I've sprained my ankle, a word which does not do justice to the initial snapping sound I heard (and felt) when it happened (along with the crying and cursing) nor to the swelling, bruising or general inability to put the least bit of weight on it. No, to me the word sprained is equal to "tweaked" or "mildly injured and unable to jump on a trampoline" kind of injury. Not the "lying in bed with my foot constantly elevated" and "yelling loudly from the bedroom for simple things like refills of water and can you please bring me some Kleenex?" that my incredibly patient family is now experiencing.

I'll be honest, the first 24 hours of this (along with hours of uninterrupted time to read) was pleasant enough. But I'd like to be done now, thanks.

I'm so frustrated with my crutches that I've taken to crawling from room to room on my hands and knees. Strangely it keeps reminding me of this scene in Top Secret.



K, that's enough for today. My potato foot (Joey's accurate description) is starting to throb.

Ouch! How did you do it? And how come there's no photo of it here? I'm thinking black and blue would photograph real well ...

I'm sorry you're in pain and I'm not trying to worry you but you might wanna go to the doctor's office if you haven't been there yet. I "sprained" ( I thought) my foot a few months ago and went to get it checked out to make sure it's just sprained and it was actually broken (never broke a bone in my LIFE). Same symptoms that you described. It looked like an overstuffed sausage...

ACK! Wendy!!! So sorry you are in pain! Hope it heals as quickly as possible.
(Comfrey makes a good soaking liquid! And tumeric is good for inflamation as well as congestion!)

Awww- that's awful! I hope it heals soon. I'll pray for you to heal quickly. :)

I have decided that if I even need crutches..this will be my option.http://www.themedicalclub.com/Rental_Equipment_s/1256.htm?gclid=COvC4b_ftZ0CFSYoawodj0ytiw
Best wished, Miss Potato Foot.

Oogy! I am so sorry about the ankle! I've done that before, and it is NOT fun. You nailed the description of thinking it is something kind of minor, when in fact it is not. I'm sending lots of good vibes your way for a speedy recovery! Ohhhh, the comfrey and tumeric ideas sound good!

Ooh - I hope it heals up soon. That sounds awful.

I hear that the condition known as Potato Foot can be cured with fries.

Potato Feet want what they want, you know?
