The following equipment is nearing replacement:

Rhode Island to Baton Rouge this morning, then back to Atlanta tonight.

Hahaha my co worker took this pic of me on the plane yesterday. We were the only two “non executives” and trying so hard to be cool...! Be cool!

FINALLY felt like my ankle hit a turning point last night. Bruising and pain is manageable now. Still a little swollen, but not walking with a visible limp today.

And flying private on a G280 with black car service on the tarmac is definitely the way to travel. Feeling like a Kardashian today, but in Rhode Island, LOL!

Ellie Mae

Still with the stiffness and bruising. Work trip tomorrow is going to come so early. I'll have to leave my house around 5:15 a.m.

Ordered another pair of Rothys as I think I'll be living in flats for a long time. I got the black/gray camo pointed toe ones. If anyone wants to try these shoes (I LOVE THEM! This will be my third pair!), I can give you $20 off your first pair if you click here:

Took Ellie Mae down to the bottom of the hill and back. I could only do this after ibuprofen kicked in. Bought some fresh arnica gel. Was going to spin on the trainer but my gut (and pain level) is telling me it’s too soon.

Easy day at home. There’s some really ugly bruising spreading on my ankle and foot now. Hurts in different ways, but swelling is coming down. Still doing ibuprofen and compression sock. Couldn’t find my arnica gel but found a sample of muscle gel with arnica so put that on. Just ready for this to heal up for good.

Tried 50 yards regular swim, but it was immediately clear that my ankle is not ready. No range of motion and pangs of pain. Used the pull bouey after that and paddles for about half.

Counting my blessings that I don't work in the aircraft industry anymore. My former employer announced today they are laying off 2,800 employees in Wichita due to the Boeing 737 MAX program suspension. Not shocking at all. I remember when I first started there, we were put on 3-day work weeks because of a Boeing union strike. Then years later, all departments had to lay off something like 10% of their workforce, including office/admin functions. They let go the lady in our department who had cancer and had been there for 20-something years. It was so awful. I don't miss it one bit.

Logging because I walked further than the doggie station with Ellie Mae. She didn’t want to poop there. Keeping my pace slow intentionally. Swelling seemed to increase at work today so took an 800 mg ibuprofen with dinner.

Itching to do something active but I'm still babying the ankle. The bruising has spread (normal) so the left side of my ankle and foot is an ugly purple now. Thinking upper body strength tonight and getting back in the pool tomorrow. Maybe a soft trainer ride this weekend. I am not good at being sidelined.

Want to hear a funny story? I saw on my debit card a transaction I didn't recognize from an Express Factory retail store. I did buy something at an Express Factory store in Tallahassee, but that was on a different card, already posted, and this one specifically said Atlanta. I was about to call to get a new card because surely it was fraud, I haven't been anywhere near an Express in Atlanta - then at the last minute I remembered I got my CAR WASHED at a place that is apparently called Factory Express. Not the clothing store called Express Factory. haha! The sign just says "Express car wash" so I was really confused, but the cost and date line up with when I got the car wash. Crisis averted.
