Rant, rant, rant. . .

Today is just not a day I should be writing, but I’ll do it anyway.

I am so absolutely done, done, done with this foot injury and it’s been barely 2 weeks and less than a week and a half since I was relegated to non-weight-bearing on crutches by my podiatrist. Yesterday I had the CT scan that will tell us just how badly I broke my damn heel and I’ll find out the prognosis and treatment come Friday. In the meantime, I’m so tired of not being able to do anything around the house or go anywhere since our only car is a little stick and the broken heel is my right one. Ry and the kids are doing tons around the house, but I feel like my independence is gone (who am I kidding, it is!) and I hate it. Hate it, hate it hate it.

I’ve done all the sitting around knitting and reading I can stand, (sinc when do I hate knitting??), the hills around the place make it a chore to getting outside and my hands and arms hurt from overdoing it with last night’s trick or treating. Life just seems like a big fat mess in my head.

Boy, that was cathartic just getting it out. Whew.

I did finish up one Socktoberfest sock and I’ll consider that a success since I’m basically one-footed these days. Since my camera batteries are dead and I can’t find the charger since the move, just imagine a photo of me with a big, black boot cast and a lovely sock made of the Mountain Colors Northern Lights colorway in Mountain Goat — so soft and warm and I hope the second one will come out just as nicely for the moment I can wear it on my other foot!

The pirate hat is coming along now — almost to the little skull and cross bones intarsia and then it’s just a matter of cruising on and finishing. Then after that, I’m not sure what I’ll start up — maybe Ry’s sweater for Xmas or Nana’s or something else… Any ideas?
