Notes to Self

Note to self: When trying to walk downhill alone, without a railing, and you have very unstable and sore feet...Don't wear flip flops.
Sorry for the gross picture
Fact: I was carrying my camera during said stumble & a man yelled "Save the camera, then yourself!" It was as equally embarrassing as it was funny.

Note to self: Lunges involve a LOT of toes, don't try them unless you plan on taking your first step and not being able to move (then having to tip over to the side to get yourself back up).

Myth: Everyone at the gym knows you had foot surgery, and they understand why you fall over when trying to do lunges...

Note to self: Never put a lit candle on the carpet, not even if it's on a plate....

Note to self:  Don't get car washed & waxed and then park under a tree that is dripping sap. Your husband won't be happy.

Myth: Sap is good for car paint

Note to self: When feeling particularly hormonal/baby hungry/single wife-y avoid ALL television. No matter what it is, you will somehow find yourself tearing up.

Fact: I've had at least 6 television induced tear ups this week alone.

Chris is probably wondering what he's got himself into...
ps. this post isn't meant to be a downer, it's funny! don't be sad for me!

Darling, I almost feel your pain. I had hip surgery last summer and getting back to the gym after 8 weeks was quite the funny story. You really do wish everyone knew you just had surgery and that's why you look so silly!!
Also, I'm on your same boat with the baby hungry syndrome. My hubs says no until my parentals come home :(
Hope your cute little feets are feeling better soon!
Xoxo

Heehee! So true! Sorry about your feet!

Alison said...

You poor thing!! Your poor sore feet! And trust me, I couldn't agree with you more about feeling emotional watching sappy TV. I feel that way ALL the time while Eric is gone!!

Poor girl. I hate weeks like this! I wish I could come over, we could be hormonal together- we'd give Chris a real treat.

Betty Tolman said...

oh no your poor feet.

Mari- I'm lonely too maybe we should skype and watch and cry to TV shows all day!

Trevor and Shelby said...

Mari! You're like me... even commercials had me welling up this week! :/

Dominique said...

Ooh those poor tootsies. Hugs Mari. Next time skip the lunges and head to See's. ;)

I love this post and can totally relate. I can't even remember how many times I fell over after recovering from breaking my foot. haha. I love Betty's comment! Yeah you and me both are hormonal/baby hungry!

The Queen said...

Ohhhhh I want to hurl. I don't know what it is about toe and finger injuries, but they immediately make me want to hurl. I'm so sorry, though, that looks really painful. :( Sorry you're having a hard time Mari!

Oh Mari!!!! So sad! Your poor foot. And I am sad you are lonely :( I will come out for lunch and tables this week and you should come out here too or we can meet halfway for shopping and lunch! Also, Ash told me she made you a custom workout that avoided the feet! that will be great. BTW if you look beyond the tragedy of this post it is very clever and funny!

Adam & Samantha said...

poor mari! When will your feet heal? It's been awhile! Adam and I officially move to Ladera Ranch on June 1st, let's get together!! Hope you feel better
