... but my summer vacation is now on hold.
I tore my Achilles tendon (a LONG time ago, in a galaxy far, far away) and it started acting up about 4-5 months ago. I finally was able to get in to see a specialist today and I am now wearing one of those huge boot-casts. I even have a special one to sleep in. And I start physical therapy tomorrow morning. So I am stuck in the lowest level of the house, and am totally hoping that the physical therapy will help me avoid having surgery to repair the damage. Hearing a foot specialist say "Oh My Goodness - would you look at THAT?" when he looks at the MRI is not encouraging, however...
OK -- so here are the positives that I am trying to look at:
I think I'll stop complaining! LOL -- actually, if it didn't hurt as much as it does, this would be funny. Almost.
So... I'm knitting, reading the "Elm Creek" books, and trying not to think about having to wear this klunky boot once school does start. We have to do a fire drill once a week during the first month of school... do you think I can get an exemption? (Pretty please?)
Anyhow, as they used to say on SNL, "It's always something" -- and especially at my house!
