Spring Break, 2012

Ok, to be honest, I have been horrible at taking pictures this week!! The ones I have taken are on my phone and I haven't transferred them over yet! However, with spring break winding down, I decided I would update what our week has been like!

Monday: We did very little. I did work on cleaning house. I also had physical therapy.

Tuesday: More cleaning. We went through the kids' closets, toys, clothes, etc. and got rid of things they didn't need anymore. Now I'm trying to decide if I want to list some of the things on FB on a local sale site, or if I want to have a garage sale. The kids also spent the night at the Kirker's house. Randall worked until 8:00 that night, so I got some Momma time.

Wednesday:The kids played at the Kirker's until after I had physical therapy. Randall and I went to Wal-Mart to get what he needed for his fishing trip.

Thursday: We didn't do much at all. I did rent movies (Footloose for me and Smurfs for the kids).

Friday: We headed to Augusta around lunch time to go fishing with Daddy.

Physical Therapy

I am officially "weaning" from the boot, and I started PT last orders say 3 times a week for 6 weeks. All I can say after today is this is going to be a LONG 6 weeks. Last week,I went once, and it wasn't too bad. Today, however, I am pretty sore. I rode a stationary bike for 10 minutes and did lots of range of motion exercises today. My favorite exercise (the one I even catch myself doing at home while I am sitting down) is writing abc's and other words with my foot. It actually feels good!! Hopefully the next 6 weeks will pass quickly.

On another note, it's spring break at the Martin house! I am so glad for downtime. Today, the kids and I slept until 8:30. We then got up and got around because I had an appointment for the van at 10:00 for a recall part. After that, we ran by McDonald's to pick up lunch then came home until time to pick Grandma up from work at 2:30. I am hoping tomorrow is a lot of sitting around the house!!

DIY bulletin board

I have had a bulletin board that I had previously used in my classroom. I had brought it home several years ago, and it's been in my closet since then. Last week I decided I would give it a make-over so it would match Emma's room. While looking in my closet for supplies, I came across a scarf I bought at JCPenney's after Christmas for $2.47. I also found remnants of a ribbon with beads that I had used to jazz up the lamp in her room. I decided that I would take my supplies that I found and recover the board.

Latest Ankle Update

Well, obviously I have gone back to work. I can tell because it's been a little over 2 weeks since I blogged last! I went back to the doctor last week. I am not longer on crutches (yay!!). I still have to wear my boot. I can start weaning from it in 2 weeks. Next week I have to start physical therapy twice a week for 4 weeks. I go back to see the doctor in April. I am so glad this ordeal is winding down!!

Tomorrow, my parents, Randall, and I are heading to Little Rock for the Zac Brown Band concert!! I can't wait. Momma and I both bought the guys tickets for Christmas! I know we will have a great time! I will post pics later!!
