1st time ever!

1st time for alot of things... I voted today! It took like 2 seconds to flip all those little lever things... I also went to the foot specialist (who was very personable) and came away with this: It's official name is "Walking Cast". Yeah, and no it can not be forced to look any more fashionable in any way! Hey it is a good thing I am not too into looking fashionable :-p Actually it really is a blessing because I can go back to work AND I can now walk! WITHOUT crutches! that is very nice let me tell you. I am going to have it for 3 weeks and then it is back to the specialist for a checkup and hopefully we are done! Oh and I found out what I actually did. I fractured the bone in the top of my foot and I also succeeded in seperating the tendon from my bone which in the process the tendon took a chunk of bone with it...did that make sense? Anyway, hopefully it will be fixed by 3 weeks :) UNTIL THEN. Dad tells me I walk like Frankenstein (THANKS DAD!). It is interesting to watch me walk I am sure :)

So here I am all dressed up with my robot leg! Gotta love that face huh? WHY am I standing my car? Well, because I drove today! With that montrosity on my right foot! I was impressed with myself :-p lol So yeah I was very happy :)

I got dressed up for mom to take pics for my application to a NTM short terms mission trip to Mexico this summer. And sadly the pitures needed to be basically shoulders and up so after much deliberating Mom narrowed it down to 2 (I hate decisions!) and said she liked them both which really didn't help me! Anyway thought I would share them with ya'll and see what you think. #1 or #2?????

So, yeah that was my day today :) I just had celery and peanut butter (yum). And I am sitting in an oversized hoodie (I LOVE oversized hoodies) typing this and being very hungry :)
Just thought I would leave ya'll with this verse:

28 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the LORD,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Isiah 40:28-31

Congrats on voting! It was my first time too. Nice walking cast. Very lovely. ;)

Okay, well my computer is not cooperating, so I couldn't see them side-by-side, but I clicked on each individually. I like #1 better, I think. Get better!
