The Pinkie Toe

Yesterday, I was playing with my daughter, running around the house like a dope and smacked my pinkie toe against the edge of the shelving unit we have in the living room. It hurt like hell, but I was positive it would eventually fade. I mean, I've smacked my toes the same way many times. For some reason, my little toes always manage to find the edges of the furniture and I hurt myself. But this is different. It hurt like crazy and I had trouble walking. Getting around the house is suddenly the hardest task.

This morning, when I woke up, it was actually worse. It's swollen heaps and the bruise is a horrid shade of purple. I think it might be lumpy too. I really, really hope that I didn't break it... but I have a feeling that I might have. Now I'm worried about my other leg, because I'm over-compensating while I walk. And man, it HURTS! A lot. The only time it didn't hurt was when I was sleeping.

Anyway. My daughter's on school holidays at the moment. So... that's a good and bad thing. Good because I don't have to walk over to pick her up. Bad because I had plans to go for some nice walks, and even a picnic, by the river. Looks like none of that's going to happen for a few days at least. Which totally sucks! I *love* going for my daily walks. Today is definitely off the cards, though. We're stuck at home all day.

It's a shame because the weekend was a lot of fun. I hated bringing it to a painful close. :/

Anyway, enough about The Pinkie Toe.

On Friday, I hit 39,377 words. Which means that I just missed my goal of reaching 40k. But that's okay, I didn't miss it by much. And although I'm in terrible pain today, as soon as I'm done here, I'm heading over to my bedroom. There I will sit on the bed with my leg raised and some ice on my toe. Oh, and I'll be hanging out with the lappy, too. Let's hope I can get some words going and pump out about 4k today. It'll be hard because I just can't get comfy, but at least I'll be able to concentrate on something else for a bit. At least, that's the plan.

Have a better day than me!
