|New air boot|
It's definitely been an interesting month. I got injured at work on the 12th and I'm still off work. Initially, I ended up on seven days of no weight bearing and crutches. Went in for a follow-up appointment a week later and ended up with more x-rays, getting an air boot put on and getting an orthopedic surgeon referral and physical therapy referral and another seven days off. I'm waiting for a phone call with my appointment dates. I'll have to go to Minot for the orthopedic surgeon as there are none closer. I was supposed to go snowmobiling this weekend but that doesn't look like it will be happening.
I'm going to look at this downtime as a blessing. I mentioned last month that I'd started a virtual assistant course so I'm working on that. I'm also working on their tech courses and just finished with their Trello training module. I think I'm going to jump into their new LinkedIn module next. I'm still working on a name for the business. I really need to get that pinned down so I can order my EIN number.

I started a crockpot of chicken and noodles after I got back home and got lil dude's coat and clothes in the washing machine. I figured it would be good for whatever bug is going around. Mr. B won't eat it so he can have leftovers. A big bowl of hearty chicken and noodles sounds good.
I still need to take the car into the shop to clean it out. I'll hose his car seat off and let it dry in the shop. Hopefully, he didn't get vomit on anything non-washable.

It was interesting to maneuver on crutches in deep snow, to say the least. Needless to say, I'm very glad I have the boot on now as it's so much easier to maneuver.

My bento style lunch (right) was a ham and lettuce wrap with Spicy Ranch, gouda cheese and apple slices.
Saturday I made some pancake bites. As you can see from the pan (below) they disappeared pretty quickly so I'll call them a success.
To make these yummy breakfast treats (or anytime treats), just mix up your favorite pancake mix per package. I used Bisquick to make these. Then fill the mini-muffin cups about 3/4 full and add whatever you want. I flavored these with mini chocolate chips, blueberries, grape jelly and cherry jam. Bake at 350' for about 12 to 15 minutes (make sure they're golden brown on top). I think this made 36 bites.
