A Not-So-Fabulous First: Le Broken Toe!

Here’s a first that I wasn’t exactly planning on: I BROKE the big toe on my left foot. How I wish I had a really great story about ninjas, superpowers, or even a runway mishap. But no — I tripped on a rug in my own house! It did happen toward the end of the KU-Texas game, so maybe I can say I was jumping up and down, celebrating KU’s winning the Big 12 regular season championship. Although by the end of the game, I was icing down the foot and banged-up knee.

Fortunately, my toe was the only casualty; my left knee and wrist are just bruised. The fractured toe is a lovely shade of dirty yellowish-purple, and I’m committed to the ever-so-stylish velcro boot for about six weeks. (Just TRY to find another shoe to work with THAT!) On the bright side, I have a specially abled parking tag — so handy last week on that rainy day of errands! — and I’m burning through my 2009 deductible!

    Dang, girl!!! That had to hurt. Sorry it’s been so long since we talked last. Been crazy here. We’ll be in TX in May, down around Houston for a wedding in Kingwood. Get better, OK?

    Oh, yeah. I forgot. I got some of my firsts planned, other than the cruise back in Jan. First part of May, I’m going on a big poker run. It’s called the 5-State Run, and engulfs Ok, TX, NM,CO, and good ol’ KS. About 800 miles in 3 days on the old Honda.
