A Broken Toe & New Theme

Between my husband and I we should be locked up in bubble wrapped, rubber padded rooms. Eddie broke his pinky toe and damaged the one beside it and has a huge bruise on his foot. He had a run in with my office chair. Needless to say, the chair won He’s been told to keep off it for 2-3 days then take it easy after that. When he first did it it was displaced I think. It was crooked, but he sat down and started playing with it and all I heard was a pop after the initial crack and then he said it hurt less.

The x-ray tech said it was definitely broken and that it was no longer displaced and suggested he just tape the two toes together because even though the other one hurt and was cut and bruised it was not broken, might be fractured a bit. I swear everyone in my family is a klutz, last weekend my brother dropped a bed rail while they were moving things from the cottage to the house on my mom’s arm. That had a huge hematoma and bruise and she is waiting the results of an x-ray (her tech was not as nice as my husbands). So she could have a broken arm as well. The doctor said there was a good chance it was broken so she was splinted. And I am still on crutches

In other news, the new theme is ready. I am not entirely sure I am happy with it or even like it It’s something different, a change, I guess. I still have the old one in case. I just copied it and changed the colors and a few other things. It was my theme I made with Underscores anyways. I had initially planed on doing a 1980’s theme in blue, pink, green and yellow but I abandoned that when I didn’t end up liking it. I still have it so I might keep working on it. I abandoned it for a 1950’s theme which I was going to make a logo for. I abandoned that as well. I ended up just going with colors I liked. I got bored with creating a theme pretty quickly. I get frustrated when it doesn’t go my way.

  1. Ouch! I hope you all recover soon. I’ve never broken a bone but it sounds really painful!
    I like the new layout, it’s a breath of fresh air in a cold season.

  2. Guys!! Yes, a padded cell, lol. So he started fiddling with his broken toe? Kind of.. ew. But I’m glad the pain was relieved.
    I like this theme. I know the thing with being frustrated when things don’t work out in a theme. I’ve been there many times. Now I use premium themes and do smaller modifications because I’m fed up with code, at least for the moment.

    1. Yeah it was gross! He must have realigned the bone because I am pretty sure it was displaced before he started playing with it.

      I have been using underscores which is a blank theme from Automattic which just really requires some CSS and slight modification of some of the files. I was doing the same thing with premium themes but I like this better. I just wanted to keep this theme really simple.
