On my way...

How do you host Thanksgiving with a broken foot?

You marry well my friends. You marry very, very well.
.
Marry well and you can do anything. Or nothing as the case may be, which is exactly what I did on Thanksgiving, nothing. Rick shopped, Rick cooked, Rick (and the kids) cleaned, Rick got everything ready, Rick served me... and I sat, and visited, and had a wonderful time. In fact this was my easiest Thanksgiving ever. Maybe I should break myself next year too (okay, now that's not funny. I'd rather have to work).

It was great spending the holiday with most of my family and our good friends the Gales. Good, good times. And my sister Larisa was able to shed some light on this here injury of mine which made me very happy. She seriously injured her arm some years ago and was able to tell me that this horrible shocking, electric feeling in my foot is "normal"... RELIEF... but that her arm continued to feel that way for nearly three years... BUMMER.

But the good news is that it seems to only be really bad in the mornings now and loosens up as the day goes on...HOPE...and last night I WALKED CRUTCH FREE for the first time. I took a step toward my crutches and it didn't shock so I took another one, then another. Woo-hoo! I looked like a little old lady creeping along, but it's a start and I'll take it.

I got some major shock therapy when I tried to walk this morning, but hopefully by this afternoon I'll be back at it. I'm on my way I tells ya. ON MY WAY.

And now on to Christmas. I want to do very subtle, sweet decorations this year. Any fun ideas?

Yup, I have to say the secret is to marry well. Could it be these good 'ol St. Johns boys we ended up with?

Marrying well...that works for a lot of things!! I'm glad you are back on your feet, a little!

Lucky you! There aren't many husbands out there who would do all that.

I'm glad you married well. I don't have a broken foot and my husband still did most of the cooking. I married well too. Good for us.

So glad your hubby stepped in and took care of everything.

I hope your foot continues to heal.

Mmmm, sounds like the best Thanksgiving EVER! :) Nah, I'm sure it would be much better without those electric shocks and crutches. Think happy thoughts! Get well/better/whole soon!! Happy Thanksgiving!

Yay! Happy Late Thanksgiving to you!!
I broke my foot a few years ago playing volleyball with the youth. I broke the long pinky toe bone and now 4 or 5 years later, it is sore in the morning and when it gets cold...but I can run and walk and do everything i could do before. It just took a while. Good luck and enjoy the pampering!! :)

I married well because I didn't even break my foot and my husband does Thanksgiving and Christmas meals most every single year. OK, so I had 4 boys in 3 years... that's how I got him to do that.

I've never said it out loud, but I married well too. Rick sounds like a dream. If i didn't have a dream man myself, I would totally be jealous!
GET BETTER SOON!!
