Rotten Green Apple
I’m thinking this may just be the week for beating myself up. I am fairly certain I broke my little toe last night. I am in a bit of agony this morning hopping around like Thumper on steroids. How did I do this you ask? Well, I was moving my dresser last night because I realized it was covering my vent and that is why I have been so cold in the mornings. As I was in the process of doing this, I dropped one of my dresser drawers right on my pinky toe. Ouch! It’s the lovely shade of rotten green apple this morning.
On a lighter note, I found out that my wonderful Dad bought me a plane ticket to fly home and spend some time with him over Thanksgiving. I am really looking forward to this as I don’t get to see him very often. I haven’t been to Indiana in a while either. I love this town. I love the mountains and the open skies and the green trees and all of my wonderful friends and my amazing job. But I definitely miss my family a lot living out here. I really cherish the holidays when I get to see them, even if it’s only for a few days. I am also going home to Arizona for Christmas where I will get to see Mom and Dan and the girls. My grandma and grandpa will also be there, so it should be a great time. It’s this time of year where I am usually pretty ready for some time off. It is ALSO the time of year where I usually gain about 10 pounds stuffing my face with turkey and pumpkin pie. Let’s hope that is not a reoccurrence this year. I don’t want to come out of the holidays looking like Will Smith on Hitch after he ate the seafood that he was apparently allergic too. Not pretty.
