Well this past weekend we hosted a cookout at our house with around 15 of our friends from college. It was so much fun-I will post about that in just a bit, but let me share a story from this weekend first.
Fishing is one of my favorite past times. I love it. That's probably due to the fact that I had two brothers and a dad who did it all the time. Well..my friend, Brian, brought some poles with him and we went fishing off of our dock. A big ol catfish was caught by Alli and we were all so excited:
He was breathing (or suffering from not being in the water) and I was trying to get the hook out of his mouth..so I pushed my foot down on him to make him quit flopping around..and guess what happened?
His fin went THROUGH my shoe (I had on Chaco sandals) and PIERCED into my foot.
I mean come on, there was a fish bone stuck in my foot....
and a catfish at that.
those are some of the most nasty fish..and they are full of bacteria and germs.
It went about a half inch into my foot. And i had to RIP it out...
I still can't believe it went THROUGH my shoe. Those Chaco sandals have a THICK rubber sole..and they are supposed to be made to walk anywhere..the river, mountains, trails..you name it.
My dad (he is a doctor) prescribed me some antibiotics to keep it from getting infected. I really hope it works because he said catfish infections are nasty as all. Cross your fingers I will be okay!!!
Wasn't that eventful?
Here are a few other pictures from our weekend. We had such a fun time playing cornhole, grilling out hotdogs, swimming in the lake, watching the French Open Tennis Final, and just having some great quality time.
What a great weekend. Minus the puncture wound in my foot.
Hope you had a great weekend!!!!
