Rolling of the Ankle...

I have had the opportunity to play a lot of basketball this winter, which is great because with it being such a cold winter, I have not been as motivated to work out so this keeps me moving a little bit. Well, at my city league game a couple of weeks ago, I was guarding this girl pretty closely. I was not going to let her get the ball. Her team was throwing it in and I turned to guard her more tightly and in doing so, stepped on her foot and my ankle rolled, following a "pop" sound. I am not sure what words escaped my mouth at that moment, but I do know that it was pretty painful so I am definitely justified if anything did slip :) My ankle is finally feeling better but is still weak. I woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and when I stood up, all of the blood rushed to my ankle causing to to swell more and causing intense pain. It took me awhile to fall back asleep. No fun!

So, along with the swelling (which got even bigger the next day) you will notice some discoloration. That my friends, was not caused by the ankle roll, but by spray on tan. I am going to Hawaii soon and don't want to blind anyone with my whiteness. My friend Lori told me about this spray on tan that she has been using and I thought that it looked really good. So, I went and bought me some and got a little carried away. Needless to say, I woke up the morning after using the spray, with streaks ALL OVER. I was not very patient when applying the blessed stuff. So, I have learned that applying spray on tan is an art. I am getting better at it and by them time Hawaii rolls around, I will be a master!
