Aging can KMA.
As I age, I find the things I like about myself are gradually falling apart. I should have been a hand model. I also had really pretty feet.
Well, they're still pretty (and I don't have cankles, honest, contrary to what the photo seems to show -- I took it at a REALLY bad angle apparently) but my left one is threatening me with bad, bad things. (REALLY bad things, but I don't want to go into that -- especially if there is a possibility that the apparatus shown can fix and then prevent said bad things.)
I guess that's what I get for being barefoot as much as I possibly can be, and by wearing flip-flops as much as I can when I'm forced to wear something on my feet. /sacrasm
But seriously though, wearing this thing (nights only) makes me feel a little like the Bionic Mommy. Which I will admit is kinda cool. Because I'm weird like that.
On the creative front, I'm thrilled to have a sudden desire to write. Meanwhile my mother's scarf is gathering dust (AGAIN). Those of you out there who have multiple hobbies: how on earth do you balance them? I've been a hobby whore for most of my life and I have yet to master the act of not neglecting some while indulging in the others.
I touched my One Story (The Story) for the first time since Nov 2009. To say it felt good is an understatement. I'm hoping to have a massive update for it coming up in the next few months, where I'm also hoping there will be a HUGE website-related surprise to go along with it. (I realize this is the type thing only I will care about, but it means a LOT to me. Just have to wait until midmonth for the cha-ching to go through with it!) :)
Kinda thinking of posting a preview. Anyone wannie (that's Contini-speak for "want")?
On the Puck front: I continue to resent the trade of J.S. Giguere (I realize that was over a year ago and I need to get over it and move on -- NEVER!!!) but seriously, the goalie situation for Anaheim just seems to go from bad to worse with variations of abysmal. I'm not sure how to feel about the new trades or the state of our "#1," Jonas Hiller. It's just disappointing considering how much talent we have on this team and how despite that, we're struggling -- again -- to make the playoffs. Seriously, boys, don't make me find a new team. Cuz I love a couple of you just way too much to cheat on you. :p
