I Need Tips from You

Tuesday's Tips Button

I'm taking a break from the budgeting series today because I need your help. I badly sprained my ankle yesterday and I was told I need to stay off of it. My older two kids are doing a great job helping as they can, but I need some tips for how to survive at least the beginning here while it hurts too bad to walk! Hubby will be working and gone late every night this week so he won't be much help! Our Menu plan from yesterday is completely out the window! It'll be easy sandwiches and things the older kids can help with. 

I hope you've found this post encouraging.

I can tell you that it will always hurt like crazy first thing in the morning. You would do well to keep meds by the bed and take them BEFORE you get out of bed.

If you really need to get around, crawl. I know it sounds dumb, but that's what I sometimes did when I was too weak to walk, before being diagnosed with celiac disease.

Eat special foods the kids can prepare by themselves, even if they are more expensive. That rewards them for helping and at the same time it gets the family fed.

I hope that you soon feel a whole lot better!
