In which winter haunts me, I try to be a less lame blogger content wise, and my foot is in a brace dealio

Well, now that you're up to date on the epic war between me and the Homework Troll, I'll give you some regular life updates. Such as the fact that winter came back, and I broke my foot.

What you say? I broke my foot?

Yes, it is true. During the wonderful Spring weather, that is now gone, I started going for runs. Well, on one such run, I was going down the street, and my foot just started hurting like heck. And it didn't stop. Okay, it was better when I was just messing around at home than when I was running, but you know what I mean. Anyway, after a few days, I finally got myself a doctor's appointment. And yeah, I gave my self a lovely stress fracture, and probably tendinitis, which is all sorts of fun. So I've got to wear an obnoxious sandal/boot thing for 4-5 weeks. Which really sucks. It's obnoxious I tell you. OBNOXIOUS!!!

And, the warm weather left again. I have an inch or so of snow out side. Botheration.

But! To make up for the fact that I went a little MIA (nothing I could about it, but still) and that my life currently involves either an obnoxious boot thing or the Homework Troll, I shall upload some pictures I managed to take of a crafty project I did before the siege.

I took an old journal I had. It was cute, but really not my style, so it had sat in my closet for a very long time. Finally I decided to get it out and bust out the fabric and glue.


Tada!! I now keep it in my purse and use it for all my random writing inspiration needs. And also random phone numbers that I have no where else to write down :P

After: Opened up

After: Closed
Yeah... So that's it really. See ya later people!


  1. Really nice! I love the material.

  2. I love that fabric!!

    Sorry about your foot. And your snow. Yuck!


  3. love the book and boo hiss on your foot! I hope you feel better!

  4. Aww, that sound so frustrating! And odd. No kidding, you are the second person I know who's gotten a fracture from exercising (the other was just on a walk) How is this happening to people?

    Oh also, I love the new cover! Your craftiness is impressive.

    Hope you get your weather back :)

  5. LOVE the journal. What a fab idea!

  6. I really like the fabric! Good job :)

  7. Oh, and too bad about your foot :( Foot injurys are terrible, walking is a pretty basic form of transportaion. I had a dislocated toe once, I was hobbling around for quite a while. And I was still going to the chiropractor for it a year later! It has a pretty great story with it though, I love story telling!! :)

  8. Everyone I know is getting foot/ankle injuries too! :(

    Yeah, the journal is awesome. I need to start carrying something to jot ideas down in.

  9. Thanks everyone! I'm so sorry it's taken me like a month to respond :(

    I swear I'll be on top of this soon >_<
