I am nearly 5 weeks into the foot fracture and I am getting along pretty well- the worst part of my day is going up and down the stairs- hauling laundry is the worst!!
Unfortunately I haven't even tried to go down into the Baylie area. After about two weeks i realized we were getting low on some dishes so I recruited a spy to go down.(Jayce LOVES to spy, but he is afraid of the basement so he would only walk down and peek around the corner) The report was grim- "IT LOOKS LIKE A JUNK ROOM DOWN THERE!" So I began bothering her about getting it picked up- it took about 2 1/2 weeks of me begging, but she finally did it and here are the results- a sink full of dishes! Lucky me!
