You guys are not going to believe this but yesterday I was chasing one of our dogs and I slipped!! I went down HARD with my right leg under me, causing a fracture. BUT there's more....on my left foot, my pinkie toe got sprained. Now keep in mind, that same toe was broken in 2004 from a car wreck! Thank goodness I did not break it again, it is just sprained and very swollen. I even had some of the toe nail broken off so you can see it in the pictures below.

Now, it was NOT funny at all when it happened! But now today, I am over it but I am in pain and it is a little funny now. I am sure the image of me falling looked funny. GRRR. The best part of the whole accident is my 20 year old son heard me fall. (he was asleep) He woke up so fast and ran to me, he looked SO terrified and he just helped me up and hugged me for a LONG time. That really touched my heart how much he cares about me. We have a very strong bond and a good relationship.

I know this isn't related to scrapbooking or stamping but I thought I would share since I am ok and not in bad shape. I am just limping for awhile.

By the way, the dog in the first picture is the one I was chasing. He seems to feel bad because he has been by my side ever since and won't let me out of his sight. AWWWW.


  1. Carrie,

    Glad you are doing fine and will heal soon!

  2. Oh my gosh! I'm so glad I'm the only clutz, NO OFFENSE! We had a St Bernard that decide to take me for a walk and I ended breaking my ankle just to keep my face off the ground! :) Glad you're ok!

  3. Hi Carrie! Thanks for following my blog :) I'm now following you too.... hope your leg is getting better!
