I was feeling a lot better, even recorded an audition for someone today, and was looking forward to starting a new April Patreon recording after dinner tonight.
And then when I came down the stairs to start cooking dinner, I missed the last step and my ankle twisted and snapped, and I was screaming for daddy while I rolled around on the floor in excruciating pain. My ankle was the size of a huge grapefruit within moments, and once I finally stopped sobbing, he took me to the hospital. Four hours and two xrays later, and I have a stylish moon boot and a pair of crutches to go with my sprained ankle and fractured foot 🙁
Luckily I don’t have to go to a job or school or anything, so other than having mobility issues and having to sleep downstairs on the couch instead of climbing up and down the stairs to our bedroom, it shouldn’t have much effect on my ability to resume recording as usual. If anything, it means I’m going to be a LOT more sedentary and hopefully I will get caught up on recordings that have fallen behind while I was sick! So maybe a twisted sort of blessing in disguise? I don’t know… I’m trying to be optimistic.
Also, kids are on spring break for 2 weeks in the middle of the month. Forgot all about that until I looked at the April calendar today. So I will have a bit of downtime where I will be unavailable when they are here with us instead of at school, but will figure out ways to work around that and it shouldn’t cause much in the way of issues where my Patreon schedule is concerned. I will just limit my other outside projects to compensate.
I hope everyone has a better start to April than I’m having!
