Thank you for all your well wishes for my broken foot! I appreciate all your kind words! I definitely mastered “the limp”. I may be slow but I’ve figured out how to get around.
Yesterday my mother in law came over to the beach house that we were staying at and brought the most delicious chili. I had two bowls.
I held down my same spot all day long in the window seat facing the ocean. When dinner time rolled around, I practiced my limp as we all went to Spaghetti Factory. I’m not going to lie, I love Spaghetti Factory.
I love their bread and garlic butter:
I love the pesto dressing that comes with the salad:
I love the “Manager’s Special” where you can pick two pastas to combine. I rolled with the meat sauce and mizithra cheese sauce.
These two sauces work so well together!
Guess what else I love?? The spumoni!
I would have slept like a baby last night if it weren’t for my broken foot. It feels worse at night for whatever reason. Oh well.
This morning I stayed in bed for awhile enjoying the view of the ocean. Finally I got up and had a couple cups of coffee and a half a chocolate doughnut. The pickings were slim (none) in our beach house this morning. We got packed up, my husband went to work and I drove the kids back to San Diego. (It’s my left foot that’s broken so I can still drive!)
Ready for my prognosis!
Don’t read this next part if you get squeamish.
Here’s the deal: my surgery is tomorrow. The doctor doesn’t have to make an incision. Using a x-ray machine, he will move my bones back into place and pin them from the outside. The pins come out in about 4 weeks. Recovery time is 6-8 weeks. No cast and I will be able to shower on Friday. Not at all as bad as I thought it would be! Still crappy, but what are you going to do?
Hubby is working late so I found a container of Chili-Cheese Mac in the freezer and heated it up for dinner.
I added a ton of Cholula to it and devoured it. I forgot how much I love this recipe!
I can’t eat past midnight tonight and my surgery isn’t until 1:30 tomorrow so there may be a snack in my future tonight. :)
Wish me luck!
Tell me your most embarrassing moment. Entertain me while I’m laid up. :)
