I love the fail blog, and on Monday if someone had taken a photograph of the incident I would have been on it. We’ve tried to plan ahead for my proclivity towards injury and have made a few wedding decisions on what to avoid. For example, we’ll be dancing in the ballroom instead of on the brick patio to avoid tripping and falling. If you take a peek at my weddingbee bio you’ll see that I’ve been banned from rugby and soccer until the wedding. I thought that meant full on, organized sports, it turns out that should have been applied in blanket force.
I looked out the window and saw Mr.D’s little cousins playing with a rugby ball, so I naturally headed outside to forget about dinner on the stove play with them. We had a few fun runs then BAM. I rolled over my ankle and am now confined to RICE (Resting, Icing, Compressing and Elevating). This means I can forget about doing the 30 day shred with my pal Jillian, or tenduing with the NYC ballet since I now have a big, swollen, squishy, ball for an ankle. I’m hoping Mari Winsor and I can still hang out for 20 minutes with that stupid circle, because I don’t want this set back to get me down. In the past few years I’ve had several concussions, broken my foot, sprained/ripped apart my ankles multiple times and the mother of them all I had one of my ACL (knee ligaments) reconstructed. So you can see why the ban was in place…if only I had listened to it.
What that ultimately means that picture like these:
are definitively OUT for the wedding day. Maybe once we get back from our honeymoon we can have a day after shoot, where it won’t mater if I can’t walk when we finish…
Anyone else accident prone? Are you planning ahead for the big day?
