Broken Toe

I am the proud owner of a broken toe. Yesterday morning I avoided stepping on my dog, but in the process I stubbed my toe on the bed. Usually after a "stubbing incident" my toe quits hurting after about 5 or 10 minutes, but it didn't stop this time. I went to work and hobbled around while seeing patients. Gabe and I went to an urgent care center around 9:00 p.m. last night. My toe was still throbbing, swollen, and I couldn't stand for anything to touch it. The x-ray machine was broken, so they told us we could either go to the hospital or come back at 2:00 when they would be able to take an x-ray. Considering I could just go to my doctor this morning for a $20 co-pay instead of the $100 emergency fee, I opted to wait until this morning. Luckily, the location of the break doesn't require a cast. So, I get to tape two toes together, take Tylenol (I don't plan on taking Tylenol), elevate my foot (I slept with my foot elevated last night and it makes a HUGE difference), use ice, and stay off it (yeah right). Anyone want to work for me on Saturday? You might be wondering why I don't plan on taking Tylenol for the pain. I don't want to overdo anything and mask pain. I know to stop when my foot hurts and I just prefer it to be that way. So, that is the excitement in our lives right now.
We watched P.S. I Love You the past two nights. The movie varied from the book quite a bit. In fact, I think it varied in some VERY crucial points to the book. So, I quite watching the movie midway through. I finished it last night. I was disappointed. My recommendation...just read the book.
I watched Sydney White this morning. It is a modern day take of Snow White. It is pretty cute if you are looking for something that requires absolutely no thought.
