I had another running dream last night, and I was going FAST!   Then I woke up.   bummer.

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.

NaBloPoMo June 2012Also 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. 

Happy June!


  1. Happy first day of June :3! Time is just flying by so fast this year...Not sure whether that's a good thing or not :s.

  2. I think you're doing the right thing by going to a doc. I had a similar thing with my wrist once. I stopped bowling *GASP* for 6 weeks! and never did it get any better. Turns out it was a cyst. Maybe that's what you have....??
    Anyway, happy June! I love that you've signed up again for another month of daily blogging. Thanks for doing all the work to keep the rest of us lazy bloggers entertained.

  3. Sorry to hear the foot is still bugging you. Hope it heals soon and you can stop dreaming and start actually running again.

    I like the shirt!

  4. Wishing you the best at the doctor. I may have to print and keep you salon tips for the future. It might be better than my current method of getting out the scissors when hair flops in my eyes?

    1. I've done that oh-it-just-needs-a-trim-I'll-do-it-myself. It usually makes me itchy, and then I still end up at the pros'.

  5. The foot is still not playing nice? Glad to hear you are going to the experts to figure out what is the problem (even if they tell you what you already know). I know it sucks, but it's good to find out if there something else causing the problem. Sending much ju-ju your way to hope this resolves your foot dilemma.

    And I applaud your stamina to do the daily blog. I just don't yet have the discipline to do that.

    And Happy June! May your summer be bountiful.

  6. Sorry about the foot. Maybe I need to run more for you (because I've only been that once so far). As for the blogging, do you have a smart phone? I have an app on mine that allows me to blog from the phone. GENIUS!!!

  7. I feel for you and your foot. I'm trying to think of some consolation... that you have a foot, maybe? Okay, I know that didn't help. :)

    You'll be back to running - and not just in your dreams. I hope it's soon.

    Clicked over to that web site. Interesting stuff. :) I like your t-shirt.

    Happy June!
