Letters of Intent

It's time for Julie's blog carnival, Letters of Intent. Be it true, mean, funny, or sarcastic, all you do is post your letters, grab the button, and link's that easy!


Dear Self,
I reached the age of 35 with nary a broken bone. Then by some fluke, my kitchen managed to throw a glass cake pan at me five weeks ago and break two bones in the top of my foot. Apparently, after all those years of neglecting my kitchen, cooking in it three nights in a row was just too much! I was in the ugly, oh so NOT stylish black boot with a soft cast for FOUR weeks, count them 1, 2, 3, 4!!! The doctor, one week ago, let me out of that boot with a promise from me to wear my tennis shoes. Picture me in my dress slacks and work blouse, with tennis shoes on my feet. No cute sandals, no flip flops at home, no strappy little heels...nope, tennis shoes, but I did it. I followed his rules for nearly a week. Then, Wednesday night, I lost my balance and fell. I knew the minute my foot landed that something wasn't right. So, I saw the doc yesterday, five weeks after my initial injury, only to be told that YES I had broken a different bone in that same foot. Another hot pink soft cast and fancy black boot. I cried, like a little BITCH, I cried, right there in the doc's office.

So SELF...WTF...knock it off, get healthy, stop breaking me...K???

Love a broken physically and mentally,
Aunt Crazy


  1. OH NO! If it's any consolation I have been a total klutz lately too! I finally put 2 + 2 together and realized I think it's my new meds I am on but I still broke my tailbone in the process oh and I just fell again this morning getting out of bed WTF???!!! Get better girl!

    Okay now I am going to grab your cute little button. ;-)

  2. So sorry you are hurt! There are so many little bones in the foot, but you seem on a mission to get every last one. Feel better and promise us you will milk it for everything it's worth!

  3. Oh my gosh, are you serious! That is awful, I am so sorry. It is such a hassle to have to try to get things done when of your limbs is bound up in a cast. Not to mention the pain. I want to cry for you. You must get better quickly, floatin' season is right around the corner!

    And by the way- your button looks great! I'm going to grab it and put in on my blog right now!

  4. never ever try to cook again ;) I hope you're healed by the time I get there.

  5. Milk! You need milk! Or some other form of calcium. How about ice cream? It sucks to break your foot and it takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r to heal. I'm sorry, but I'm sure your hot pink cast is bee-you-tiful!

  6. That totally blows! Please tell me you will be waited on hand & broken foot like the queen deserves. On a completely different subject, are you going to Bloggy Bootcamp in Austin 10/23? I think I'm going and I'm going to try and get CTM to go to. How much fun (trouble) could we all get into? LOL!

  7. Your comment on chubby bustin made me laugh out loud A LOT!

  8. OMFG! Seriously?!?! You sound like me. <--that was so not a compliment! LOL

  9. Ouch! Hope you get better soon! I found your blog through A Southern Belle Trying Not To Rust and found it very lovely. I just started my big real blog so check it out when you get a chance! Have a great weekend! Maria
