Remember when I broke my toe last year?
Well, yesterday I dropped a book on it. The book happened to be War and Peace, hard cover. If ever there is a book you don't want to have hit your bad toe, its War and Peace.
The good news is, I've finished War and Peace. I admit, I skimmed the epilogue. I defy you to read that book and then not skim the epilogue. The bad news is, my toe really really hurts again. Not enough that I'm going to go to the doctor. But enough that I'm going to keep it wrapped up for a few days.
I went to the doctor for something else yesterday, and that was painful, unpleasant and he warned me the after-effects could last 2 days to 6 weeks. Wanna narrow that down a bit? I have a checkup in two weeks, and then again in 6 months. But this will probably never be fully over.
I'm slowly catching up at work. Maybe some day I'll feel like I'm not snowed under. I've put in 8.5 hours of overtime already this week, so at least that more than covers my massage yesterday. I've found an affordable massage place thanks to Maureen, so I think everytime I find an extra $50 around, I'm going to try to work one in. I'm pretty much a very tightly wound person, and they really seem to help.
