My Cankles Are Barking

So it seems there's just been too many goings on for me lately. I'm kinda exhausted and after my neighbor exclaimed that my ankles looked really swollen yesterday and I was all- no, they're just fat cankles- I thought well maybe I should sit down for a bit and take a rest. But that's not so easy for a mom of three with one on the way. And even though I had totally planned on clearing off my plate a bit it seems I've only added more to it.

Yesterday I was on the go every moment it seems or I was trying to get things done around the house or I was trying to referee my three kids and whoever else's kids were in my garage or I was making a mad rush to the grocery store for celery (must. have. celery. I'm even eating it right now at seven in the morning.)

No wonder when I finally run off by myself to another commitment in the evening, I lock my keys in my car at the gas station. Kick me while I'm down- I dropped $4.19 a gallon and find out, oh yeah, you can't leave, too.

So, I call hubby to come unlock me and laugh at the mess I am, only to see that another blogger who happens to be in town also happens to be there at the gas station to witness the mess that I am. So of course we took a picture. Yay for blogger gas station meetups!


And so my cankles are glaring at me, reminding me. I need to just sit down already.

  7. Cankles ... that cracks me up. I had that majorly while pregnant with my son and I called it elephantitis of the body. :)

    Hope that you find a way to try to kick those feet up and relax.

    Curse those cankles. I had them during my pregnancies and don't get me started on how my feet look after flying all the way to Hawaii. Hideous.

  18. Hi Steph:

    I read your bio -- and I am very curious...you list veganism and ketogenic diet as interests. Is it possible to do both of these simultaneously?

    Love your blog name!
