ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov 16

I am not saying that on some days , it doesn't pay to get up, but I question why do these things happen.. to me.
Returning from a walk with Noodle,I stubbed my middle toe right foot. I was wearing shoes and I still really smashed this toe. So much so, that I felt that I should have it X-rayed, even though I know that if it were broken, not much could be done for it. My orthopedic surgeon wasn't in his office, so the office told me to go to an ER. I thought that I would circumvent the ER and go to a free standing center. They didn't have x-ray equipment ! So, then I went to the office of a podiatrist that I used when I had fractured metatarsals. They fit me right in ,did the x-rays ,and ,no, I didn't break anything ,but I had a contusion and it would probably take a while to heal. All this before 9 AM. Later the same day, I was again on a walk with Noodle(I just realized, that all of this is Noodles fault). A biting ant got into my left sandal. And stung me, or whatever an ant does. I itched so bad that I had to run home as fast as Noodle could go. I did everything that I could to stop the itch, but it took a long time for that itch and burn to stop. After dinner , I went to turn off a floor lamp and guess what. I banged the right foot,middle toe on the base of the lamp.This time I cried. It hurt that bad. Today, I have a purple and red toe and I will probably have a black toe nail before too long. And my bites? They are now two blisters. Maybe I should just forget yesterday. Is it tomorrow yet?

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
