Saturday was the fancy shin dig sponsored by my women's philanthropy group (which, joining was the smartest thing I ever did to meet some nice ladies in my area), so I had to miss pilates class. Instead, I had to help set up a banquet-type room. This is a major fundraiser for the year to fund all of the events put on for the children of my county, so there was a silent auction (many, many items to be set up) and even a live auction. The event was that same night.
There was a cruise, a painting, a mink vest (I am NOT on the procuring committee!) AND, drumroll please, Schnorkie puppies to be part of the live auction! What is a Schnorkie puppy, you ask? It's a Schnauzer/Yorkie mix. There were two in the basket so that the generous winner could have his/her choice in coloring. I had the awesome job of walking around showing them off before the live auction.
Wearing the boot, pushing the puppies.
Due to the adorable little Schnorkies (3 weeks old and being bottle fed for the evening) hardly anyone asked about the boot. Note to self: carry basket-o-puppies everywhere I go.
And Sunday was Run Club. Only a handful came today, but that is A-OK. Among them was my friend L and her fiance C. They plan to be regulars! Very cool.
Chasen will be traveling this week and I have a very, very busy week planned (it never fails). Everyone always says "Ooooh! What will you do while he's gone?" As if I will get some magical vacation time or something! It's usually more like "Um... blink and then he'll be home."
My friend Coral, a physical therapist, has advised me on some exercises to do while I am healing, in order to keep the ankle from getting too weak and unstable thanks to the magic boot. Among them is writing the alphabet with my foot while lounging on the couch. Recovery is fun!
