Who knew that I was such an awesome runner and athlete that I
 would end up with a stress fracture in my foot!! 
Holy cow -- I know why they call it a stress fracture --
 it's stressing me out!

No, those are not really my feet,
but I wanted a photo for you all!

 Am taking double doses of Aleve*
(where are the real pain meds I ask you?)
and have started wearing my lovely orthopedic boot again. 
It's been a couple weeks and it still hurts . . . a lot!
Can you tell I'm hoping for loads of sympathy from blogland??? :)
The worst news --
am not certain if I will be able to rush around on Black Friday --
but hopeful that I can do a bit of shopping and then go home,
 crash on the couch with a bag of ice and some pumpkin pie!!
Happy Thanksgiving friends!

That's how it all started with me last year. Stress fractures from running (on top of bunions) and I ended up with major reconstructive surgery. Feeling for you, sweetie!! Let others wait on you over the holiday. Sounds like you might be doing some internet shopping this year. Love the new blog header of Maddie!!

You poor thing- ouchie is right!

Now sit down, put you feet up and get some rest!

(also you need to search high and low for some of the good pain medicine!)

Holy smokes! I think you should ask for some better drugs for at least Black Friday! Let me know if you want me to pick something up for you!

In the meantime, put your foot up and have a relaxing holiday. Let Trader Joe's do all of the work!
