A little bit of everything…

Monthly Archives: October 2011


Despite the accident, surgery and all the crazy, I managed to get Iggy Pup’s Halloween costume to a wearable stage of completeness. Unfortunately it was starting to rain and my ankle was quite fussy so Dinosaur Iggy wasn’t able to properly greet the Tricks or Treaters. We did manage to give out all the candy before the rain really started to fall and I was convinced by my ankle to return to bed.
Iggy’s dinosaur costume is all crochet and done without a pattern using Red Heart Yarn. I’d say it was successful, wouldn’t you?
Happy Halloween to you and yours! Take care and be well.


I had big plans for the month of October. I was going to return to the world of blogging, get organized, crochet a Halloween costume for Iggy, and the list goes on.
Unfortunately, on October 8th an accident happened. Matt, Iggy and I were planning on enjoying the sunny Saturday afternoon at the dog park when we were involved in the a serious car collision. The other driver was completely at fault and I struggle to use the term “accident” even though I know it wasn’t intentional.
Thankfully Matt, Iggy and I are okay. My injuries are the worst. I fractured three bones in my left ankle, bruised my chest muscles and got a nasty abrasion on my right hip. I came home from the ER that night and have been confined to bed ever since.
My ankle surgery took place on October 19th and I’m on the mend. I am making slow progress, the pills I take keep me comfortable but cause me to lose track of time and sleep a lot. But I am going to be okay. Pins and a plate are helping my ankle heal and this Friday my new Doctor will see how things are progressing. I will return to work and blogging and life will gradually become a familiar journey again.
Things will return to normal and I will post more frequently again. I hope you’ll keep visiting, I’ve missed this. Take care. Be safe.
