So after living a life with a short metatarsal, I decided I wanted to have surgery to have it fixed! I got a few opinions that I didn't like, and then one that sounded perfect! It was the best day of my life! I was so excited! Finally, not having to hide my toes all the time! Finally being able to wear sandles in public, going to the beach and pool parties and being able to be free!
Surgery was April 28, and I was told not much pain, blah, blah, and not so blah blah on my end after all! I ended up having an external fixation device on my foot that I turn myself 4 times a day, and pins in three of my other toes. I still cant walk and I am on crutches. Being that my one son is 5 years old, its not so bad, but the problem arises because I also have an 11 month old that is very curious and like most babies is exploring the world. I never thought about how hard life would be for a little while! I cant go anywhere unless someone is with my all the time to load the baby and unload him! Ugh and worst of all is is mornings. Doug goes into work before we get up so I have to have him crawl to the stairs and then slide down on our butts lol! Its starting to get crazy! Then I am challenged with a one legged hop around the house! By the time nap time rolls around I feel like my good leg and hip are going to break!
AAAHHH I hope the doctor says I can start walking tomorrow at my appointment!

For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
