I have been away from blogland for a little while due to breaking my ankle on Sunday. I didn't just break my ankle, I pretty much shattered my ankle. It was something so stupid, I just slipped in our backyard. My foot remained stable while the rest of my body twisted and fell on top of my foot. I went to the emergency room around 11:00 on Sunday and was in surgery at 3:00. I have never broken a major appendage before and it was some of the most intense pain I have ever experienced. For me it was worse than childbirth (this from someone who had two natural births). S couldn't remember ever seeing me in so much pain.
So now I lay on bed rest for two weeks. I started doing work from home on Wednesday afternoon which really makes the time fly by. I love my HGTV and DIY but they are both getting really old. I am so happy to have my laptop back to communicate with the outside world.
Today is also a very, very special day. It is S and my sixth anniversary. We had a romantic weekend planned, we were getting away from the kids for a few days and had a reservation at a little B&B in the Hood River area. So we had to put that off for a few weeks. Instead we are spending the day hanging out in bed, which would be romantic if I was in any mood to get it on, but that's not happening. So we are planning a big evening of dinner in bed followed by a few movies.
There are so many ups and downs in a marriage and this is definitely one of the downs, but I love S more than when we were first married. It is not easy being a stay at home dad and he does it with such grace. He is there for me whenever I am feeling blue and always seems to know when I need a little romance in my life. He is a fabulous dad and the girls love him so much. I can't wait to spend many more years with him. So even though I am laid up in bed the time we get to spend together talking about the past six years as well as what is in store for the future will be a special time for us. S, Happy Anniversary, I love you!
