Violet Crawley: Makes me smile, the way every year we drink to the future, whatever it may bring.
Isobel Crawley: Well, what else could we drink to? We’re going forward to the future, not back into the past.
Violet Crawley: If only we had the choice!

This was basically the status of our home this week, as everybody tried to take over the jobs I’m pretty sure that they hadn’t really even noticed that I usually do. Fortunately, I’m getting a little better at moving around every day, so they won’t have to pick up all the slack for me too much longer!

This broken ankle is quite an adventure. Obviously, the ankle hurts. But I was not anticipating all the other aches that would come along with it. My hands (not to mention my armpits!) hurt from using the crutches. My right leg is sore from being the only weight-bearing leg I have at the moment. My tailbone is sore, from doing nothing but sitting around all day. Even my hip and my abs hurt! I seriously had no idea how painful a broken ankle would be…for the whole body. Frankly, this quote from Apollo 13 pretty much sums up how I feel about myself right now!
“Let’s look at this thing from a… um, from a standpoint of status. What do we got on the spacecraft that’s good?” Ed Harris as Gene Kranz in Apollo 13
