My Stalker-Walker Ain't Walkin for awhile!

My oddly militant Stalker-Walker walking buddy Gina is out of commission. After forcing me to walk in the dark with her on too many mornings to count...I am now getting a much needed break! A few weeks ago as we were walking down a hill in the dark...(did I already mention in the dark?), Gina tripped on a rock and rolled her ankle. Now my friend has torn tendons and a sprained ankle. She was so stressed when the doctor told her that she, under NO circumstances could walk. He was so adamant about this that he made sure to put her in a hard cast, not a soft cast, because she was actually asking him if she could have her morning walks with a soft cast. I asked her if she got a referral from her foot doctor for a head doctor...she is just insane! How many people would be depressed over not having to get up in the dark, bundle up like an eskimo and walk 2-3 miles a day?

I'll tell you who....GINA!

So please keep my friend in your prayers. And don't for a minute think that I am being too hard on her, don't you dare feel sorry for her at all. Do you know what she did right after getting on her cast? She brought over an early birthday gift for me and it was fattening chocolate. She is trying to sabotage my time away from her so I HAVE TO walk with her again. Her gift of sweets to me today sent out a clear message that I surely didn't miss...she wants me to get fat so I'll NEED HER!

Poor Gina - it does sound as if she may need a mental health consult. At least she's a friendly psych patient!

You are way too funny!!! I do hope she heals sooner than later though! :) I'd lose my mind if I had to be in a cast.

Happy early bday whenever that is.....mine is tomorrow (sshhhh).

Hugs to you~

I think you should walk FOR her!!! Yes, in the dark, bundled up-she'd do it for YOU!

Happy early birthday....Feb 9!

AWE... your stalker walker is out of commission. How sad. In honor of her injury I too shall skip walking... :0)

So sorry she is casted. But c'mon... I don't have a cast on and I don't look NEARLY as cute as she is. :0)

Hi Joanne,
I just read your blog this morning and was blessed. I'm fairly new to posting and have come to love it! In fact I'm going to have to balance my time on here. There are so many precious women out there and I feel like this is a wonderful way we can connect and encourage each other and pray for one another.
I'll be checking in again soon.
Have a blessed day! You're in my prayers.
P.S. I just have a stress fracture and am having to wear a boot. Your poor friend....with a cast!

Just jokin. If you miss walking you can come walk with me but you would have to get up at 4:30

Poor Gina! I need a pal like that to get me off of my big butt!
Have a nice 'vacation' :)

Oh that is too funny about the chocolate in an attempt to have you need her :)
Oh and girl I DO NOT get up before the sun and when I have to I am not a happy camper.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet Joanne!
God loves you so much!

I'm with you, my husband is the same way! I love him for encouraging me, but boy sometimes I's just want to be left alone, and let the pounds fall off by themselves!

Enjoy your 'time off'! And, hey, you might as well enjoy that fattening chocolate, too while at it... I'm sure Gina will have you making up for lost time when she's back on both feet again! :)
