A day in the life of Erica


Recommended Posts

So I get up this morning and I am still hobbling around from a knee injury that I got over the weekend. The kids and I are just hanging out like we normally do in the morning, and then I go to make some food. I step back, feel a sharp pain in my heel and hear a crunching sound. Yup, I stepped on a piece of glass. Not sure where it came from, thankful my daughter didn't step on it, but my foot is bleeding all over the kitchen, and I have a severe throbbing pain! I spent awhile trying to get the glass out, as I think there is still a piece in there, but not positive.

Now I am hobbling a lot since my left knee and my right heel are painful. I still can't put any weight on my heel as it hurts really bad and I am convinced that there is still glass in there, that I just can't see. Then my kids were playing in the room this evening and my daughter came out of the room. My son started crying, but before I could pick him up, I had to run to the bathroom. He could see me from the bedroom door, so to try and keep him happy, I kept calling him and telling him to come see me. He is almost 10 months old and has been close to crawling for awhile now, but I haven't encouraged it, as he is going to be VERY busy. Anyway, he got up on his hands and knees and he crawled to the bathroom!!!! My life will never be the same again.

After I put him to bed, I decided to check out BDW and my 3 year old daughter crawled up on the back of the couch (which she knows she is not supposed to be there), ran across it and slipped down between the couch and the wall/window frame. Her knee got stuck and I had to move the couch to get her out. I don't think that she will be doing that anytime soon. Hopefully she has learned her lesson!


Oh yeah, last night I also burnt the roof of my mouth on pizza, so it is all blistered up now, which has made eating and swallowing to be very uncomfortable!!!

If I walk in a straight line, my knee isn't too bad. If I sit or stand up, that motion hurts, as does turning on the spot. I still can't walk on my heel, but when FI gets home he is going to look at it to see if he can see any glass in it still. I will survive.


Oh yeah, I just started back at work on Sat & Sun, but had to miss Mon & Tues because of my knee. What a way to start work again!!! LOL
