Suck it up

So despite my ankle being swollen and extremely sensitive, I sucked it up and had a good day.

My dad decided that he wanted to take us fishing, so this morning we all piled into the car and drove to this little pond 10 minutes away from where we live and just did some good, old-fashioned fishing off of a dock.

No one caught any fish aside from my dad, who caught a catfish and a perch. It was a nice family outing though.

After that my sister and I went shopping for summer clothes, and since I'm such a Jew, the most expensive thing I bought was a pair of athletic shorts for $12, haha. But no really. I got a new dress, a 2 pairs of shorts, a purse, a sweater (which I can't wear until next winter :/), a button up shirt, a cool cup, and a romper that makes me look like a park ranger. For $30.


If I'm spending my own money, I make it go far. I usually stick to sale/clearance areas and I'm VERY picky.

So yeah. All that shopping was good for my wallet, but not for my ankle since I've been walking all day. Oh well. I can manage with dull throbbing pain.


  1. I'm very jealous of your shopping success... I try to do the same, but I'm not usually as victorious. I hope your ankle feels better soon!

  2. Solid effort, fighting through the pain. You're probably a Terminator. Just sayin'.

    And all that for $30? Well played. Well played indeed. That's enough to make Jewish people hang their heads in shame and question the stereotype.

  3. Well if it's only dull and throbbing you can manage. I've only been fishing once, and failed to catch something. I also can be very thrifty with my own money. You did get quite a lot there for quite a little, so well done. I hope your foot feels better soon.
