Ouch.

So...I know I've been on vacation for a while, and now I'm back, but I haven't been here. Where have I been? Oh let me tell you. I was all ready to start updating the dozens of posts I have in my head, and the air conditioning was finally installed in the office so I could bear to sit on the sticky vinyl chair in front of the computer for more than 3 minutes at a time. I was getting back in the groove of working, which was a little tough after a month of vacation. Life was back to normal. Then, last monday, I was riding my bike home, excited to check out some wedding planning stuff my friend Erin had emailed me while I was at work. Half of a block from my house, I got in a bike accident, with another bike. I went straight down onto my knee, and smashed down my tibia. I spent the next five days in the hospital, with a painful, long surgery right in the middle of that. Now I'm home, with nurses and physical therapists coming in and out. I have the most wonderful fiance who is taking such good care of me. I won't be cooking for a while. I can barely stand hobbling from my bed in the living room into the kitchen to brush my teeth. It will be a long recovery, and a long summer, and I will try to keep up here but if I don't, forgive me!! I hope everyone is having a better summer than I am, and happy 4th of July!

  1. Just focus on getting better. Blog when you have the time. Don't rush it or stress yourself out too much. Life has it's way of getting in the way of things, but that's fine. Live your life how you want to, for we will still be here when you get back to this part of it.

  5. Bah! Jill! OUCH is RIGHT!
    I sure hope this comment finds you feeling a bit better.

    I wish you a speedy recovery - but know that the time off your feet will give you more time for those bridal magazines, huh? :)

  8. Jill - I only just found out about your bike accident after you so sweetly posted on my blog (about my bike accident!). I'm so sorry to hear about it and I hope by now you're up and around and feeling back to normal. I totally understand your situation, believe me, totally......best wishes for a continued recovery!
