 Before the swelling got really bad
 Some roses blooming in my garden

On Feb 19th I was going to check the mail after 10 hours at work and wasn't paying to much attention to where I was stepping.  I stepped wrong by the curb and ended up spraining my ankle pretty bad.  I cried like a baby it hurt so bad!  Trent took the girls to a school meeting and I stayed home to ice my wound.  Through facebook and texting I borrowed crutches and an ankle brace.  I only used crutches at work the next day but here it is a week later and I still have the brace on.  The ankle isn't swollen anymore but it still hurts pretty bad.  I had taken off the brace and just wrapped it in an ace bandage and that just made things worse!  I don't really have any shoes to wear over this thing and I can't wear my boots to work.  It has been interesting to say the least!  I am ready to not have this ankle pain and be able to really work out!  This morning was my first morning back at the gym and it stank having to take it easy.  Hopefully by next week I'll be 100% again.
