I have no idea what I ate today. We went to brunch and I ate some of a lot of stuff.
Hubby’s 40th birthday was Saturday! I planned a surprise party for him, but it was a holiday weekend and hardly anyone came. Though, it was a laser tag party, so the people who did come had a great time. It was at a bounce house place near where we live. The back room is full of huge bouncy castles and bouncy slides and stuff. They turn the lights off so folks can play laser tag in the bounce buildings.
Hubby wanted me to play too, but I knew I wasn’t really up for it. After all the tag was over and we were almost ready to leave, I agreed to go in and climb the super fun bouncy castle and slide down. You have to do it without shoes. As I was climbing the bouncy ladder part, my weak ankle turned right over. It was quick and not too painful, so I thought I’d gotten lucky. I only went up and slid down the one time. I immediately came back to the party room and put my high tops back on. But, I am not so lucky. My ankle ached during the night and when i woke up in the morning it was swollen and quite sore.
So, I am back to wearing the stupid bulky ankle brace. And I am back off of doing the exercise until I can bend it more comfortably. It makes me angry to have such a weak joint and to be restricted from doing so much. I honestly thought one climb up the bouncy castle would not be a big deal. I am not sure yet if I was being delusional or if I was just not as careful as I could have been. Walking on a surface that is full of air and unstable and doing it in socks instead of shoes was obviously not a good plan. I am so mad at myself for getting re-injured.
Hubby and I went to see Zero Dark Thirty. That was really good! I love Kathryn Bigelow’s work anyway, Hurt Locker was so awesome. And I adore Jessica Chastain, The Debt is one of my favorite movies, plus she was really the best one in The Help. So, I knew I would like it, but I was still a little surprised that I really felt so much during the course of the movie. There isn’t a lot of action, the is a lot of politics, and it wasn’t a subject I paid a lot of attention to when it was in the news. So, it could have gone differently.
I paused my George RR Martin re-read. I got half way into book 2, A Clash of Kings, and it was just so angsty. It isn’t even the most angsty one, but I didn’t want to accidentally trigger a depressive episode. I put it down for about a week. I am going to pick it back up tomorrow and finish this volume out as quick as I can.
Not much else going on. I had a migraine on Thursday and it was pretty debilitating. The pain was gone on Friday, but the after-effects were still strong. I felt normal on Saturday, but was busy about the birthday stuff and just didn’t get around to blogging. I’ll try to do this again tomorrow.
