Buzzy Bee

In midst of my latest injury I've also been given an assignment, HUGE, to appraise for the department of transportation. I have a city appraisal for ADOT due first week of March. Yea, I've a bit of anxiety on this due to the work involved and exposure it provides as well. Money, yea that's pretty cool too.

So, I've been working on this project for the past week and run into some road blocks and fraud scenes along the way. Tons and tons of research and for the most part, not coming up with as much as I'd hoped but there's enough to give me hope.

In the mean time, I had two clients of mine call in needing appraisals asap, meaning yesterday, of course. Rains if pours!!! You're not kidding. So, I've got a full dish and will probably not post until March. If I'm MIA now you know why.

Fortunately, it's Saturday night, change night, quiet night and I can catch up on my blog and email rather than work on the the one report I have due 2/16. Okay, I've guilted myself into getting to it.

I'm out! LOL.

little by little

My posts seem to be spacing further and further apart these days. Well, I've been off night job for an extra week due to an injury. Decided to inadvertently skip a step while walking downstairs, landed completely wrong on my right foot that said "POP", which then sent me tumbling in what the teen girl called "armadillo mode" and onto the floor in screeching pain. I maintained long enough for her to leave and then CRIED like a baby in the privacy of my own pain. Shortly the phone rang, child called mother to advise she thought I really hurt myself. In octaves I didn't know I was capable of I replied, "I'm fine" to which she arrived home with my foot on the ottoman, my face 'moist', and found crutches from the garage at my side.

My hon took me to urgent care where they tried to kill me - see above pic. This is when she nearly sent me off the table with a pencil to her throat. Whoa talk about sharp ass pain!

I never thought I was a weenie but when I had the x-rays done and they were negative well, I felt pretty weenie because I have had sprains before but NEVER to the extent of pain I felt on this deal. Although it wasn't broken it was really a bad sprain. The typical sprain is to the exterior of the ankle where mine was to the inside this time. Also known as an eversion sprain. It was pretty damn bad as well, couldn't put the slightest weight on it for two days. Evidently tore a ligament and am now in a bootie, which is great btw. Has a pump on it to inflate the interior to compress the injury. I'm getting around now changing into shoe for driving after being home bound for a week.

She gets cranky tired after walking w/o boot for a significant period of time but outside that I'm at least able to limp around on it. Can't quite bend it or use it to scratch my other leg/foot yet. Yea, that's still quite painful.
