I have a mystery pain in my foot that is growing.
The pain has altered my lifestyle. That is, I was thinking of exercising before, but now I'm no longer thinking about it. I know; that's tragic.
I have explained over and over and over and over and over again to my husband that I simply cannot do anything except blog because I have this pain in my foot which precludes any activity but blogging, and maybe watching American Idol and LOST. And eating food that he has prepared and brought to me. Because I have this pain in my foot.
Being the analytical type, I had to figure out what caused this pain so that I could continue to milk it for all it's worth.
I know what the malady is now. It's "Blog Toe." When I post, I have a habit of pulling my right foot up and pressing the ball of my foot into the floor, lifting my heel, and apparently pushing down with vim and vigor. I suspect the more impassioned I am about the subject matter, the harder I push. Therefore, I cannot write about my close personal friend Clinton Kelly for at least a couple of weeks.
I believe I have pulled a muscle or tendon. It hurts to even simulate that picture above. So it looks like I'm going to have to be catered to hand and foot (no pun intended, just instinctively clever) for a long, long ... long time.
Have you ever strained your wrist or neck or foot from blogging too much or in a weird way? If so, I'd like to hear about it and what your strategies were for becoming excessively pampered due to said injury.
Also, a meme. Look at me. I actually remembered I got tagged. By Lynn at Life in Bloom.
What were you doing 10 years ago? I was preparing for my first short-term missions trip to Kazakhstan, member of the former USSR.
5 things on your to do list for today:
1. Place signs in the yards of youth group kids while they're at school inviting them to a special event
2. Help with a youth meeting/meal tonight.
3. Work on a book proposal
4. Read my Bible because I'm on a roll; I haven't missed a day this month. I decided that even if it gets all legalistic and becomes a task, it's better than hit or miss.
5. Exfoliate and consider getting a Mystic spray tan just for the heck of it. You have to exfoliate first.
3 Bad habits:
Forgetting when I've been tagged
Forgetting ... something else
