The Life of a Cat

After I wrote my last blog post on Sunday morning, I hopped out of bed, scarfed down the delicious French toast my husband made out of a loaf of Acme bread (the best), and drove 15 minutes to North Berkeley for a game of pickup soccer. It was great, there were 10 girls so we played 5 vs 5, and then as people had to leave it turned to 4 vs 4 and eventually got down to 4 vs 3. We should have stopped at 4 vs 4. We should have stopped, or at least I should have stopped, when I yelled "last goal wins" and the other team scored on our pitiful group of 3. But even though we were hot and tired and mismatched, we kept playing.

And then something stupid happened and I rolled my ankle over the ball and collapsed to the ground. I knew then that it was bad. I knew I should have been wearing my ankle brace, which I had worn in my game the previous day and which had made my ankle feel good. My ankle felt so good that I made the conscious decision not to wear the brace for a game of pickup.

But I'm not going to get into all of the things I wish I had done differently to avoid being in my current state of immobility. Because in the last 48 hours I have made a lot of positive changes to my website and overall business that I probably wouldn't have made a priority if I weren't laid up. Please check it out. Click on the tabs, view those pretty faces and let me know what you think.

So, my life is that of a cat. And I don't know when I'll be able to walk again. And I don't know when I'll be able to go back to work watching kids. I also don't know when I'll be able to photograph clients, which is the worst part. If I still can't walk by the weekend I suppose I'll have to go in for an X-Ray. (The uninsured wait until they know it's not somethings that will heal on its own.) In the mean time, if you have any movie recommendations send them my way!
