Purple boot

Well, I am feeling much better since surgery - and in celebration I have enjoyed some quality time with my pup! Wednesday, during my lunch break, I decided it would be fun to chase Bella around the living room (that is her favorite thing in the world)! After several laps around the couch, I got a little too close to the wall. I nailed the wall with my left foot. Stephen and I heard a noise that sounded somewhat like a 'crack' - and I was speechless!!! I tried to walk it off, but that was not happening! So, I propped it up and put a bag of frozen peas on it. Then Stephen was kind enough to find his crutches and I was off to work - which is where everyone who has ever broken a toe, confirmed that I had broken mine! I didn't plan to go to the Dr. except that I had some really weird I went and was told that I had a fracture that went up the center of the bone! I was given a 'post-op shoe' (yeah...I know you want one!) and told to wear it for 4 weeks! At that time I will go in for another x-ray to be sure everything has healed up properly!
I guess I'll have to find another game to play with Bella Rose! :)

1 year and 27 years

The 2nd and 3rd weeks of July are pretty big in the Mann household. Our 1 year was on the 14th. My Dad's birthday was on the 10th, Scott's was on the 16th (the big 30) and mine was on the 17th (the big 27). For our 1 year, we got the hook up for a weekend at a lake house--jet ski included along with sizzling fillets at Ruth's Chris.

My birthday was fun and low key. I got some home depot gift certificates for my new found passion of yard work, a sweet air chair, a book I've been wanting, an outdoor games kit, and a hose nozzle.

Stephen's Birthday Wishes

Correne and I have an ongoing debate about birthday wish lists. If you ask me, what's more practical than having a list so loved-ones can get you what you want without the hassle of guessing. If you ask Correne, that takes away from the thought and sincerity of it all--because that's the point right?

Well, since I'm posting, here's what I'm hoping for, come July 17th:
--An Air Chair
--A Bike Rack (for a Civic or Ion)
--A Badminton set for tons of fun in the back yard
--A bean bag toss game
--A Home Depot gift certificate (I can't get enough)
--A Boss RV-5 Reverb Pedal
--Itunes giftcard

Mann Recovery

Stephen and I have successfully made it through a week and a half of 'recovery' and now I am back at work! Stephen has been an amazing caregiver! And our LifeGroup/church along with the ladies I work with were so kind to provide many meals (and a little company!). Bella was spade last Thursday and has had a handful of complications - so she is now wearing an E-collar. She hates it! She has become more comfortable with the whole situation, but I still don't think she is a fan! She will have to wear the collar at least another four or five days...
It would be so great if Stephen and I could get a little of Bella's energy!
