Because I'm an idiot

My sister left early, with no word about when she would be back, so that she could go deal with drama one of her coworkers started, but doesn't even really have anything to do with her. So my brother and I decided to take the bus to the mall until it was time for him to leave for work. I was getting off the bus, and instead of landing on my left foot I landed on my left ankle. My brother helped me hobble over to a place where I could sit, ran into Giant Eagle, bought me an icepack and a bottle of water--so I could take some pain pills--and then we called my sister to come and get me. While we waited for my sister, my brother put the icepack on it, and wrapped my ankle. It's really swollen, hurts like I did something stupid to it, and I can't really walk on it. The swelling has gone down considerably since it first happened, though, and we're fairly certain that it's not broken. I have a pair of crutches--from the time that I sliced the same foot open and had to go get four stitches--so yay for that.

In short, this all could have been avoided had my sister just been home, instead of leaving in a hurry to go deal with coworker drama that in the long run really doesn't matter...not that I'm blaming my sister or anything.

I'm in pain, and I'm really not happy about the lack of being able to get around properly. Getting up and down the dilapidated steps in this house is not a fun challenge...not even a little bit. Still, it could be worse, and I'm glad that my siblings cared enough to help me out. My brother bought me two icepacks, an ace bandage, and some cookies to make me feel better. My sister was awesome enough to drive back and come and get me. Plus, once we got home she was even more kind and went down into the cellar to get the crutches for me, while my amazing brother wrapped my foot for me again, and set everything up, so that I wouldn't have to hobble around a lot.

All in all, thanks awesome siblings, screw you evil not working properly feet, and yay cookies.

Yeah, now my right knee hurts. I scraped both knees pretty bad, and my jeans keep irritating the skin.
