I know that I disappeared from the blogosphere for quite a moment but it was necessary. There was too much crap going on. Plus how can you make a triumphant return if you never leave? Exactly. So here is (in a very short form) a recap of the last few months:
First, my incredibly loud and fabulous grandmother lost her fight with lung cancer. She was so great. I wish everyone could have met her. So I flew home to California for a few days. Little did I know that exactly a month later (to the day - hence the word exactly) my grandfather on the other side of my family passed away from being old. He was the most amazing man and chef. You'd think that most pasta is the same but being Italian really gave him the advantage of making everything taste wonderful and magical and fabulous. Plus he was hysterical. So that was my second trip to California.
Me and Taylor
Luckily my third trip to California was to go to Disneyland... so it made Cali seem fun and bright again. We went to celebrate my 31st birthday, Meghann's 19th and Lindsay's 28th. Unfortunately Taylor's is in December but she got to come with us anyway. Disneyland was just as fun as I always remembered.
Me and Lindsay... I totally won!
Then this happened on the 23rd of May and I haven't been able to work since!
The site of the carnage. Damn you foursquare! I will hopefully be heading back to work at the very end of July or beginning of August.
While Michele and I waited in the emergency room at the hospital we decided to snap some pictures. She is the one wearing sandals.
After the fiberglass splints I was upgraded to two walking boots and a wheelchair. I have wheelchair pics too but I just can't find them.
But most of the time I just sat around and looked at my bruises. Even my toes bruised and I damaged the nerves to my toes so sometime my 2nd, 3rd and 4th toes fall asleep for no reason - pretty cool.
So there you have it... the last four months of my life. Huh, not bad.
