A New Year Mystery
I stayed in last night and the highlight of New Years Eve was skyping with Baby Emerson in the Netherlands. He is usually sleeping when I call (those 2 month olds are so lazy). But last night he was wide awake and ready to party. He has grown so much. It is so amazing to be able to video chat half way around the world. Then I fell asleep on the sofa. I am a PAR-TAY ANIMAL.
This morning I got up with the mission to wipe out Christmas decor from the house. I'll probably find the odd nick-nack here or there for a few days but I think I made a pretty good sweep of the house. Countless treks up and down the ricketty basement steps and super-hero feats of strength as I lifted large heavy totes up on the high shelves. I was really missing the handy-man today.
Then sometime later in the afternoon (here is the mystery part) I got up from the sofa and my right foot hurt. Each step a little worse. ? ? ? So, what happened . . . I have no idea. And before you say it - I had nothing to drink last night or today. How can it be that you can barely walk on your foot and have absolutely no memory of hurting it ?
I don't know what happened but I can hardly put any weight on it tonight and the top and side and kind of burning a little now. Sheesh. I mean seriously, how can you hurt your foot by doing nothing? I'm hobbling around tonight like I'm a 90 year old.
And not only am I starting the new year lame, I am also starting out looking like a sexy beast
Don't ya just love the sexy red jammies and super-hot purple socks. I mean really - - - - Lol
The outfit is partly due to the fact that it is just so darn comfortable but also because I did not do laundry today. I read on someone's blog recently (sorry, I forget which one) that it is bad luck to do laundry on New Years Day. Has anyone ever heard of this before ? I didn't want to take any chances - my foot might actually fall off
