He's a keeper

My husband.

Tuesday I rolled my ankle- while carrying the 25+lb one year old I nanny. I tore my ligaments 60-80%, whatever that means, and a few hours it looked like this.

Cute huh?

The first day/night the pain was the worst. After that it's just been difficult to walk on (have it in a brace to prevent further tearing, which apparently would be no bueno. When Drew's been home, he has been waiting on me hand and food. After a 9-10 hour work day, he has been walking to Whole Foods and then coming home and making us all dinner. Then we put J to bed and he cleans the kitchen, and toys and such that he insists I not put away during the day.

 And Tuesday night- when I was in the most pain, he brought me home my favorite treat, pepsi and twix, which I enjoyed while he cooked me dinner and I sat icing my ankle.

 Delicious home made pizza and ceaser salad he made one night- see told you he was a keeper!
 Jasper has been having 'sympathy pains' and has been walking around with two of his father's socks on one his right foot, 'cuz i got's an owie like mamma'
This picture was taken two nights ago, so two days after I fell. The swelling is mostly gone (thanks to all those bags of ice Drew forced on me) but it's still extremely tender and turning  sweet shades of black, purple and green (def. more bruising now then in this picture)

On a completely unrelated note- seeing this pictures of my tattoo makes me realize how much it has faded, anyone know how often you should touch them up? It's only been 2 years since I got mine, but it's definitely  a much duller purple than when I got it in Sweden two summers ago.


  1. that is too cute that jasper was imitating you! how funny :) and i would defnitely say you got a keeper, so sweet to take good care of you and glad to see the swelling is down. you have a nice battle wound and could probably make up some crazy stories to tell people what happened! :)

  2. Feet and hand tattoos fade very quickly. I think it has something to do with the top layer of skin shedding more frequently or something? It will have to be touched up more often than a tattoo say, on your arm

  3. I hope your feeling better :( That looks like NO FUN! What a sweet guy you have!!

  4. You poor thing. It looks like a lot of pain. Thank goodness for the keeper boy~ to make the ankle a little more sweet.x

    hope to hear from you*
    love amy ^.^

  5. Wow he is a keeper! ;) glad you're feeling better!
