wimbledon & shopping  

I am given to understand that Paul Bettany won Wimbledon yesterday, and that the British are very excited about this. :)

It was an insanely busy weekend. Saturday was pretty nearly perfect; we went forth and shopped, getting exciting things like lawn mowers and ice cream makers, and went to the farmers’ market, and had lunch out.

We also got new shoes for Young Indiana which exploded three hours later. The entire bottom front half of the left shoe just went splooey and fell off, and all he’d done was walked around a block and then ridden in the buggy until we got home. Despite having not taken a box because he was wearing them out, and having been told they couldn’t be returned or exchanged if we didn’t have a box, they not only exchanged them but responded with gratifying and embarrassed horror at the disintegration. So kudos to Sketchers for that.

In the evening I went to see Now You See Me, then came home and sent Ted to–well, I thought he was going to Hummingbird, but he went to see Now You See Me too. We both liked it a lot. :)

On another topic, the outside of my left foot has been hurting for a while. It was worse when my last pairs of shoes were getting old, and improved somewhat when I got new ones, but it’s aching more now without the other worn-out-shoes symptoms. It has finally occurred to me that perhaps there’s actually something wrong with my foot. It’s possible I should go get it looked at, eh?

Today is more unpacking. Yesterday we rearranged the front bedroom to put the bed away and put a bookcase in so I can now, well, unpack. And do…other things. I should be making a list and I can’t even think of what to put on it right now. Except

- call airtricity
- get sticks
- work on the grant applications :/
- email nice lady at [redacted] to discuss [redacted]
- email matrice

Paul Bettany is still being celebrated: we British may be rather tedious this week, for which I apologise. (Personally I'm still celebrating Marion Bartoli winning the women;s singles. She's a role model for every girl ever who was told she wasn't conventionally pretty enough to succeed. And she's awesome.)
The foot pain might be something like planta fascitis: do get it looked at.

I dont mind you celebrating Paul Bettany, although I, yes, a more delighted by Marion Bartoli. Go her. :)

I suspect the foot pain might actually be something like a very mild stress fracture or something, given how much I walk. I might've overdone it.

Take care

Plantar fascitis causes heel pain (I know, because I gots it). That side of the foot pain does sound like a stress fracture, or maybe a bone bruise. Did you drop anything heavy on it during all the moving around?

And you--overdo? I am shocked by the suggestions. Shocked, I say.

No, the hurt pre-dates the move by some time. It's really that it truly only just occurred to me that it might be something more than shoes losing their cushioning. If I did something obvious, it's so long in the past I'd never figure it out. :)

I am usually covered with bruises I have no memory of getting :-)

Get thee to a doctor, toots. If it isn't getting better on its own after this long, it probably isn't going to.
