Note To Self

When you've been curled up on the couch for a couple of hours make sure that all the feeling is back in your legs before you try to walk across the room.

In case you don't think this is something worth noting, let me remind you of the last time you got up from sitting in one position too long:

You stood up, walked 2 steps across the hardwood floor, rolled your ankle, heard a pop & a crackle, and then collapsed onto the floor. You truly thought you'd broke your foot. Once you realized you could wiggle your toes, you hobbled upstairs with the most painfully bruised ankle bone. Ouch.

    Have a great weekend and be careful (o:

  6. I actually had a friend break her foot by doing this. She got out of bed, her foot was asleep, broken foot. Glad yours isn't broke!
