I don't know what it is about a wonderful vacation that makes me more weary now that I have returned to work. I guess I haven't yet made the adjustment from leisure mode to work mode. I return from work too tired to stitch for more than an hour or so before vegging out in front of the TV ... Bill and I are re-visiting Quantum Leap from our own vast TV on DVD collection.
The result: I am moving a little more slowly than I had planned on my Homespun Elegance Christmas ornaments. I am nearly finished with the 2001 Santa ornament and have yet to stitch up the 1999 Santa ornament, but I am sure I'll have it done soon.
And, to complicate matters, I injured my foot last Sunday. While stepping out of the car at church, my sandal slipped off and my foot landed on said sandal crosswise. At first, I thought I had just pulled a muscle so I kept my foot up for the rest of the day and figured that would be that. Well, it is now swollen and painful. My primary care physician has diagnosed it as "severe trauma to the soft tissue" ... which I assume is medical jargon for "I'm not sure what you did so I am sending you to a podiatrist and I'll let him figure it out." In any case, walking on my injured foot untreated for four days was not one of my brighter ideas. But I have always been one to try and tough out an injury/illness rather than run to a doctor at the slightest discomfort. More fool I! Well, my injury has turned a three day weekend into a four day weekend so things are not really so terrible after all.
