The Pain of Saying No

Greetings! Recovery is still going pretty well and I'm "walking" without using crutches or that zippy kneeling scooter thing. I'm still not in a real shoe yet, but last night  I slept without wearing the walking shoe. It felt nice to let my foot breathe!!! On another foot-related note, I'm now a big fan of Epsom salts.

My toe still looks pretty ugly and maybe one of these days I'll post a picture for you non-squeamish people to see what I'm talking about.

Since it is October, you know I've had big ideas for decorating and going fun places and doing all the things, but I've had to really tone it down. The first heartbreak was saying no to Iron Invasion this year. I couldn't see myself tromping around a fairground in the rain with crutches or getting my walking shoe all mucked-up.

The second thing I had to say no to was working with a local reporter on a Halloween story. I just didn't have the time or energy to do what was needed for the story and that really made me sad because it would have been a lot of fun.

The next thing is we're missing a lovely trip up to Galena in lieu of having that yard sale we didn't get to have in September because it was right after my surgery. We could skip the sale, but we need to move everything out of the garage so we can get our 1962 Buick Invicta in for the winter soon.

I'm hoping that's the last thing my foot will screw up this month.
