As you may have gathered from the silence around here, nothing much has been going on. But I shall regale you with tales of my nothing nonetheless.
- I'm currently doing physical therapy for my stupid broken-foot-turned-re-irritated-ligaments/tendons/ankle nonsense. I dislike physical therapy. A lot. I can stretch at home, by myself, while watching TV. I don't need to waste hours of my life and lots of my sick time multiple times a week so a doofy PT can watch me stretch my ankle, I swear.
- I've seen three different PTs since I started. The two men are...doofy. I loved the woman, but, of course, she's just a per diem person who was filling in during another therapist's vacation. Boo.
- Awesome lady PT told me that I'm the first medial ankle sprain she's ever encountered in her 20-year-long career. She's excited to be able to share my case with her students. This is just proof that I'm a special snowflake when it comes to stupid injuries.
- But I'm out of The Boot! This meant purchasing some supportive, summer appropriate shoes (black, black, and brown, respectively). I hate supportive shoes. I just want to wear cute dressy sandals to work and flip flops the rest of the time.
- As to therapy of the mental sort, my awesome therapist who told me she was going to close her office on August 1 actually closed her office on June 1. I had an appointment with her on June 3 or 4 that I had to cancel, but I never got a call from her to reschedule. When I called her office, I got a message saying the office was closed. Though I was at peace with her retirement and my needing to find a new therapist, I thought I'd get one more appointment with her to say goodbye and thank you. That didn't end up happening and I'm feeling a smidge abandoned. I'm guessing this has something to do with her (or her husband's) health, but I hope not. I think I might send a letter saying thanks. I need some little bit of closure.
- I went on a impromptu trip to Cedar Point with my BFF last week. It was awesome. I got to spend a full day with L (and her mom, dad, and brother) and ride roller coasters. Wednesday is a perfect day to go; there weren't many people there. The longest wait we had was 45 minutes, and that was only because a kid puked on the ride and it needed to be cleaned. I rode the new coaster, Gatekeeper, and was slightly underwhelmed. It was cool, but I think my expectations were too high. I'll have to try it again next year. There was a chunk of time in the middle of our day when we were stranded in a gift shop with about 30 other park patrons due to tornado warnings, but once that was over and the rides were going again, the fun resumed. A random, mid-week day off of work was nice, too.
- Speaking of work, I think I finalized my next tattoo's design while I was stuck working on July 5 because
our "part-time" person is a bitchI drew the short straw this year. What, you thought I'd actually be working on the Friday after a mid-week holiday?
- I'm still deeply mourning the loss of Google Reader (damn you, Google overlords!), but I'm settling in with Feedly. I've tried Bloglovin, Digg, and The Old Reader, too, but Feedly is my favorite. I think.
- It's hot as balls around here right now. But at least it's not raining. After three weeks of almost constant rain, I'll take the heat and humidity if it means sunshine.
- Michelle (who made the BlogHer Voices of the Year list this year, BTW) wants me to go to BlogHer with her. I really, really, REALLY want to, but I just don't think I can make it happen (but I haven't completely given up hope yet, M!). Sucks.
- I switched to a new family doctor a couple of months ago. I like the guy, but some of the office policies are annoying. For example, they want you to request appointments and prescription refills online, but the online system sucks and doesn't seem to get your requests through.
- This really only becomes a problem when you forget to request a refill of your crazy pills until you're down to two doses, it's Saturday night, and (as you find out on Monday) your psychiatrist who normally prescribes these pills is on vacation and his "fill-in" won't do the refills. Fun!
- Our super awesome daycare has openings for this fall and is having an open house this week. If you live around here and want the info, let me know.
- I need to figure out how to make it get dark around 8:00 p.m. in the summer so my heathen children will go to sleep sometime before 11:00. It's very difficult for me to go to bed early when my cherubs are still bouncing off the walls. W hasn't been too bad. I think he's going to the preschool classroom at daycare in the afternoons, so he's not napping and passes out relatively quickly most nights. But R...man, that kid. I think he inherited mommy's night owl tendencies.
- It actually sounds like they're both sleeping now. I should probably do the same. Who wants to bet one of them wakes up as soon as I lay down?
