Yesterday, I broke down and made an appointment for next week with a physical therapist to see what's going on with the foot. I don't mind taking it easy while it heals, but I just want to know that the thing actually IS healing and to know what else I can do to help that along.
If I go to my doctor, she will most likely just tell me to not run (already doing that) and give me some happy pills to replace the endorphins. Then charge me $80 or so.
In the meantime, I dream.
Also in the meantime, it's a new month! I not-so-smartly signed up for another month of daily blogging. I say not-so-smartly because we've got some plans for this month that involve me being away from the blog for a few days. If I don't pull the daily blogging off, don't be surprised.
But, as the daily blogging has actually happened since I hopped on this bandwagon back in November, I felt compelled to sign up again. This month's theme is the cruel "jump". Cruel to a person who can't (presently) jump.
But enough whining already! I'm enjoying the summer so far - a week into it. I don't particularly miss being out at the crosswalk. That afternoon shift can be rather inconvenient for scheduling other things, that's why the job pays the big bucks *cough*.
And yesterday, yet another mystery t-shirt arrived from deviantART. No, I'm not on a mystery shirt spending spree, but through a series of events, I ended up with this one:
This was a winning entry in a "Monsters Do Exist" t-shirt design contest. According to the artist:
"Monsters do, in fact, exist, and they're more scared of you than you are of them. It's a well-known fact that one of their greatest fears is being uncovered by a flashlight, second only to young people running up to confront them. Some monsters just want to stay hidden under your bed, eating the occasional sock or cheese poof that rolls their way. It's best to just let them be."
Anyway, even my kids like the shirt - is that a good thing? Either way, I'm enjoying short-sleeve season.
