Like my list of errands, I had a list of blog posts for this week. The schedule for today was to do a giveaway of a product I was introduced to at BlogHer. It was a "Back to School" giveaway and since school is starting in many parts of the country -- or has started -- I was all set to join in. But most of today was spent in medical pursuits, as will part of tomorrow. My hope is that it's only part of tomorrow. I have broken some of the bones in my foot, but the good news is that they are not dislocated and I should be able to avoid surgery. The last I find very good news. I see the orthopedist tomorrow morning and will know more at that time than I know now.
Accidents happen and this definitely was an accident. But I've thinking how I can avoid trips and falls in the future. I generally do look down as I walk, but I need to remember that being careful as I walk is not a part-time occupation. I need to remember that water makes tile floors slippery, that wet leaves make streets slippery and that throw rugs in the bathroom and kitchen can be problems. I feel very lucky that I didn't break my ankle or leg or still worse, my hip. But even breaking a few bones in my foot will change a lot of plans.
I'm still hoping to do my giveaway tomorrow and continue on this week with some very fun posts. Please be careful. The bones you save may be your own. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself.
