I can't believe I managed to find this picture. This is almost exactly what I looked like a split second before I broke my foot.
See how straight her back knee is? Well apparently my knees aren't straight enough to my dance teacher, so she drilled me, making me jump up and down on my left foot, right foot up, yelling "make that knee straight! It must be perfect!". She was in a really crappy mood. The kind where she criticizes every single wrong thing you do. "Knees straighter! Don't let your heels drop!"
So my knee was perfectly straight coming down. It didn't budge an inch! My ankle absorbed all the shock instead. I rolled it, and fell pretty hard on the side of my foot. That's the part that's actually broken, where I landed.
All my friends and their moms were so so so nice. They helped me out of the room, got me some ice and a sofa. I loved talking to them.
We went to a CareNow on friday, mostly just to make sure my foot was not broken. I was pretty sure it would hurt more if it was, and it was only a little swollen. Well the x-ray shows that it is broken, but they couldn't tell us how much, or show us the x-ray or anything. I'm pretty sure its small. I'll be up and dancing again in no time :) In the meantime, they gave me this ugly boot to hobble around in. Mom bought me some awesome flowers from JoAnns to spice it up with :)
Some happier news: HOLLY GETS BACK IN LESS THAN A WEEK! I'm so so so so excited! Can't wait to see her :D
