Better late than never...

Better late than never…

That’s true, isn’t it? Today is my day to post and I’m just now thinking about it. Sorry. But I have a good excuse, besides senility. I broke my blasted toe. And I really didn’t want to start 2008 this way. It’s better today not so purple and swollen. I’m still trying to get a shoe on without making faces.

That’s what I get for trying to take the ham out of the freezer to thaw for New Year’s Day. I should have waited for my husband, but oh no, I had to do it just then. It wasn’t on the top shelf, but the next, and as soon as I tried to lift it out, it came sliding out of there like a greased pig and land on my foot. I saw stars and said a few words I’d only heard other people say.

The thing thawed on the utility room floor until my husband got home. And, yes, we had the blasted ham for New Year’s Day dinner. Somehow I didn’t enjoy it as much as in other years.

My slogan for this year is to watch out for those flying hams!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!
Is everyone enjoying the new year?

Linda, oh, ouch! Poor dear. I've broken toes before and the thing I hate is, you can't do anything!

Linda Warren said...

Kara,
I know! The doctor gave me these strong pain pills and I had to stop taking them. I can't write when I'm on those things. I just want to sleep. And I have to write. I keep telling myself that, and I'm sure my editor appreciates the thought.

Oh, I feel your pain. Years ago "we" dropped an oak headboard on my big toe while putting a waterbed together. Hope it heals quickly for you.

Estella said...

Broked toes are very painful. I've had a couple over the years.

Linda Warren said...

Catslady,
Thanks. I'm hoping the same thing.
Did you lose your toe nail? I'm hoping I don't.

Estella,
How true. I never thought a toe could hurt that much.

Danny said...

Sorry about your toe, Linda. :O I hope you're all healed up in no time. :)

Sad to say I did lose the nail but it stayed on for a long while (although the color was pretty ugly). I'm thinking it's more painful if it falls off right away because there's no protection for when you drop something else on it lol.

Linda Warren said...

Danny,
Thank you. I'm on the mend.

Oh, Catslady, you're giving me chills. Oddly, the toe is black and blue, as is the top of my foot, but the nail is not - yet. I'm watching it closely.
Thanks for letting me share all of this.

Hope it'll be better soon. hmm now there's an invention a pain pill that doesn't make you drowsy.
I just ordered Texas Bluff so as soon as it comes in I can start on the 5 Texas Hold'Em books

catslady said...

LOL sometimes the coloring of the nail seems to comes as it grows out - good luck. Maybe you actually didn't hit that area.

Linda Warren said...

Christa,
Bless your heart. You've made my morning. Thank you for ordering Texas Bluff. You're going to enjoy all the books. They turned out great and we had fun writing them.

Catslady,
Oh my gosh! That is what's going to happen. It's going to turn black as it grows out. The nail is kind of numb and I can't stand for anything to touch it. Oh, well. At least I can still write.
