Almost Back to Two Legs...

Just wanted to give you guys a quick update on my progress.  I'm going back and forth from my boot and sneakers with crutches based on how I'm feeling.  I had a bit of a set back over Thanksgiving involving cooking pasta and the dishwasher door, total accident.  The ankle got tweaked a little bit and I assumed I could still function as I had been up to that point.  Mistake.  I spent Thanksgiving day at the island with a cutting board and ignored orders to sit back down whenever I tried to help.

I got to therapy the next week and had so much bruising that I couldn't finish out.  They told me I needed to take it easy and of course I ignored it in favor of my experiments and finishing my proposal for my thesis project.  Another mistake.  It got to the point where even walking in the boot was painful and I knew I needed to step back and take a break.

So in that vein, I'm going to set a limit for myself to start blogging again regularly only when I feel like I can handle everything.  School is crazy right now due to my candidacy exam and I really need to save what limited energy I have for my work.  I love cooking and I miss it so much, but right now I don't want to jeopardize any progress that I'm making.  Thanks for the support during what has been the hardest three months of my life.  I'm lucky to have great people in my life, especially my family who has had to put up with an increasingly frustrated lady as I've lost the humor about the situation.  

I'm still talking about food and my adventures in #broken on twitter @sarah_toasty and I'll be back as soon as I can!   I've got a lot of great ideas to revamp in the new year, so I hope you'll stick around to see what I come up with!
