The last 24 hours have been

filled with many ups and 1 huge down.

Fall down actually.

I'll start with that. For those of you that have been to our house, you know we have 7 million stairs. We have a 5 level house so there are stairs everywhere including 1 step down into our sunken living room. M & I were just coming down from upstairs...I made it down those stairs with no problem. I step down into the sunken living room so we can play with her thousands of toys and my ankle (not bad one!) blows out the side and we both go flying. I don't know if my flipflop slipped out or to the side of my foot or what happened?? All I know is that I'm flying through the air in major pain, Miss Thang is just barely dangling in my arms and screaming because she doesn't know what the hell is going on and I'm heading for the coffee table. I manage to grab M so she doesn't fall eventhough she is upside down and I'm holding onto her by her legs. I try to tip myself over instead of doing a header into the huge wood coffee table, which I do but I have no idea how. I gently lay M down on the ottoman (she's still screaming), I'm on the verge of tears because my bloody ankle hurts so damn much.

Then I get the giggles.

And I can't stop.

Poor M is looking at me like I've lost my mind.

I can't quit.

Finally I gather myself, calm M down and assess the damage. It starts to swell immediately and is throbbing and tingly. Now it's not very swollen but solid black and blue. I can barely put any weight on it. Tomorrow is going to rock:/

So I think I'm going to have to go in to see if its a bad sprain or I actually broke something.

Sheesh.

OK, now onto the up's!!!

I went to see Eclipse with the girls last nite. Grrrrrrrrr!! Jacob. is. HOT! Super Hot! Like OMG hot! Grrrrrr! It is a great movie (and not just because Jacob is shirtless in most of it. Eventhough that is AWESOME!!!). I would definitely go see it again. And again. And again. ect.

Oh crap, I forgot about another down for me but up for my body. A couple of friends of mine have given up soda completely (even diet) and lost 20+ lbs. SO.... I am giving up one of my reasons for living....my diet dew. ~sigh~ It's a sad day in the Haugen household. I will allow myself 1 diet dew per week and that is it. I'm completely diet dew free for 24 hrs. The only time I give up diet dew is when I'm pregnant so this isn't too difficult but still sad to give up that ice cold can of diet dew every morning, noon and night.
OK, so maybe I have a problem. I seriously can drink it ALL day long and never tire from it unless it's really hot out and I need some water.

I have more to discuss but this is getting really long already so I will end here. I'll let you know how the ankle ends up. Frickin ankle.

Ouch! Sorry to hear about your ankle. Usually a break is less painful then a sprain. I hope you heal quickly.
And I feel for you with the soda. I started cheating and drinking soda just a little while back, thinking "Oh I can have one a day while nursing" and now I'm drinking sometimes 4 or 5 a day. And when not nursing, I'm like you, drink drink drink all day long and never tire of it. So bad for our poor bodies.
