Oops, I Did It Again!

It’s been a while since I fell and actually hurt myself but I took a tumble on Thursday when my knee buckled on the way to the bathroom and I sprained my ankle.  Thankfully, it’s my bad leg this time so it’s not that debilitating…just painful.  Arrrgh!

As it turns out, my spill is a bit symbolic because it happened minutes after Olivia successfully passed her driver’s test and became an independent, licensed driver!  Woo Hoo!  Way to go Olivia!!!  I have been praying in recent months that I’d be able to physically drive until Olivia got her license…and God answered my prayer!  Praise Him!  However, now that Livy is able to drive herself to all her fun activities and because my reaction time in my weakening right foot is getting slower it’s time for me to voluntarily give up driving.  It’s not like I was driving a ton other than to take Olivia to school each morning anyway but it’s a tough reality to go from “choosing” not to drive to not being able to do so safely.  😦  So, significant milestones continue to be marked in the Geyling household…marked with a tinge of heartbreak but mostly gratitude and relief for answered prayers!

  1. Well, crap. Didn’t even tell me, did ya? Happy for everybody that Livy will be driving — especially her. That’s a huge step toward independence and sometimes a scary one. She, however, will act this, I am sure. And so will you.

  2. Congratulations to Olivia!!!🎉

    So sorry about your fall…and cannot imagine your heartache right now😞…Missing sweet, sweet Rudy!
