Poor little digit

My Sunday started early. Made BBQ chicken salad, brown sugar wedding balls, and a layered concotion of granola, yogurt, and fresh fruit to take (along with two bottles of champagne for mimosas) to our friends house.

Then, I broke my middle toe. :(

Tripped over my son's animal book and smashed it into the corner of the ottoman. It was the kind of pain that knocked the breath out of me for a few seconds. It swelled, turned purple, and burned like crazy.

In the end, though, we still made it to our friend's house and had a lot of fun. Once we made it back home (to a kitchen full of dishes), the dishwasher broke. *sigh* I'm talking full of dirty dishes and then all my dirty ones from cooking and the day before. Which now need handwashing. But, good news is there's a new dishwasher expected on Wednesday and said 'little digit' is nestled in tape and healing quite nicely.

How was everyone's Easter holiday?

Ooh, sorry about your toe! I've broken one before. No fun. But it sounds like you were definitely able to see the good stuff and not just the bad. My Easter was quiet and uneventful, just how I wanted it.

Wow - I'm amazed that you were able to go ahead and have fun at someone else's house after hurting your toe. Although, maybe being somewhere and laughing with friends helped keep your mind off it. I would have been quivering in bed - because lately every little thing affects me way more than it should!

Good grief what a way to start out your Easter first really well with all the lovely preparations and then bang disaster!
You beat my 3 days of babysitting a man trying to pass a kidney stone and still trying today. :(

Kelly take care and so glad you turned a negative into a positive and went and had your planned good time and very happy your toe is all bundled up and feeling better already in healing mode...

I'm thinking my Easter weekend was better than yours. No broken anything--bones or appliances--and supper at my sisters, so no dishes, either. Bliss.

I am sending soothing healing thoughts to your poor toe...

Thanks to All for the digit commiseration. :D It's feeling much better today!

Sorry to hear about your Toe. It was so nice out that we changed our plans and decided to bbq and eat out on the deck.
