Well, I tried to avoid stepping on my dog who was lying on the stairs and somehow managed to end up in the ER. Broke an ankle and a couple of toes and made a mess of some ligaments in my foot, so I’ll be sitting on the couch with my foot elevated and iced for awhile. Help a klutzy girl out and recommend some movies/shows/Netflix binge watching experiences? So far I’ve enjoyed Gone with the Wind, Harry Potter 1&2, the most recent two episodes of Game of Thrones (Oh, my WORD!!!), and The Sound of Music. The amount of television I have watched is annoying to even myself BUT there really isn’t much I can do. I have the attention span of a gnat.
Also…ice baths. I’ve always just wrapped a plastic bag of ice in a towel before BUT Jess made me a cold water/ice bucket to submerse my hurt foot in. It’s like heaven. Once you get over the piercing-needle cold. It helps with the swelling and I can usually go an extra hour or so without pain medicine. (I don’t like taking pain medicine – it makes me feel funny and sleepy and gives me bad dreams.) I don’t know if that would be doctor recommended – but it’s heavenly.
Okay. Really, that’s all. Recommendations. Please.
