party, party, party

last saturday night, we went to a surprise party for joe’s parents’ friend brian’s 50th birthday. brian’s kids and their significant others, as well as another couple, met us at joe’s parents’ cabin for snacks and then we all caravaned to doris and carl’s cabin. brian was totally surprised. he thought everyone was getting together for a neighborhood cookout.

we all…well, most of us…ok, us younguns put on party hats and got into the celebration. it was great fun. we cooked out (even grillers for moi, the vegetarian) and just hung out and talked and watched brian open his presents, most of which were gag gifts.

the picture joe’s mom took of us sitting on the couch is i think by far the cutest we have of us.

oh the sunshine

well yesterday i put the top down on the mustang when i went out and about. it was so nice. it was such a beautiful day. i can’t wait until summer so i can drive the mustang with the top down all the time!

my stupidity

i sprained my foot. well, according to the doctor, BADLY sprained my foot. and i don’t even have a good reason, like kicking joe (joking!). nope. i tripped over myself going down the stairs and fell on my right foot. in my own house. as my cats watched and laughed. yep. i’m a moron.

my mom and i thought it was broken because it didn’t swell. friday morning i could barely walk, so joe drove up here, picked me up and took me to cartersville medical center. it’s our favorite date place. we’ve been there twice…more times than we’ve gone anywhere else! 🙂 we were only there about an hour and a half and were told it was a bad sprain. they wrapped it up, gave me crutches and two loritab (which i hear i can get $50 for each on the black market) and sent me on my merry way.

joe couldn’t take me back home because he had an appointment in atlanta, so he set me up on the couch at his house with ice on my foot. about half an hour later the medicine kicked in (oh what wonderful stuff it is) and i got real dizzy and about passed out. but i wasn’t in as much pain! i used the crutches for part of the weekend but gave up after i started injuring myself even more with them. i’m just not smart enough to use those things. hehe. yesterday i wore my shoe for the first time, albeit untied. today i’m still hurting but at least it’s not as bad.

somewhat true, maybe
