Unfortunately my wife has had an accident. She slipped going down a set of stairs and heard an audible pop in her ankle when she landed. By the time I got home yesterday, she couldn't bear weight on it and we decided it prudent to go to urgent care and have her ankle x-rayed. We were there late into the night.
Thankfully, there were no broken bones but there is still a strong possibility she has some ligament damage. We'll find out in a few days. Right now she is in a splint and on crutches and so far in need of a lot of help to get even the basic daily activities done*. An extended stint with them would not be good for her...or for my sanity.
We live in a house of stairs. We have a 3 year old. I am already working long hours. Plus, we have our first vacation in nearly a year planned in a few weeks for crying out loud.
So today, after being up past midnight last night, getting up early to get my wife and son ready for work and daycare, working overtime, picking up Lukas from daycare, stopping off to pick up groceries with a tired 3 year old, lugging everything in from the car, unloading, making dinner, helping Mrs. LIAYF up the stairs, setting the table, cleaning up a whole cup of spilled milk, helping Mrs. LIAYF and Lukas upstairs for bedtime routine, starting a load of laundry, folding two more, clearing the tables, unloading the dishwasher, loading up a new load, taking out the trash and compost, getting breakfast ready for morning, helping Mrs. LIAYF set up a station for working from home, and cleaning the cat box, I was FINALLY able to open the refrigerator and pull out a cold Full Sail LTD 05 .
At least I laughed when I popped of the bottle cap....

* I must give my lovely wife a lot of credit, since is pretty tough. Despite her swollen and splinted leg, she is still working full-time. Something I probably wouldn't be doing. Then again, as I already know, she is irreplaceable.
