I don't usually talk about health schtuff, but since this is rather more amusing than not, I wanted to share.
I've had an on-again/off-again relationship with my right knee for a couple of years. Sometimes (like my back) it up and goes out on me without so much as an argument first. I've seen a specialist and when it happens I wear a brace, and go to physical therapy.
So a few days ago my knee went out again. On Friday I had the brace on (not too tight) and spent a quiet day catching up with visits and comments and as I sat at the computer I noticed my right foot was suddenly freezing cold and it hurt like several bones in the foot and ankle had spontaneously broken. I could hardly put any of my considerable weight on it without excruciating pain.
There was swelling, but not a lot. I applied the heating pad (to no avail) and took to my fainting couch whereupon the Mister took advantage of me. By that I mean he snuck off to the kitchen and ate a bunch of junk.
By the time I went to bed a few hours later the pain had started to subside and I could slightly rotate my ankle. We're thinking maybe it was some kind of a bug bite? I mean, I don't live in the Amazonian jungle, but what else? Medic?
And now for the part that gets so absurd it's funny. At 5 o'clock Saturday morning I shot straight out of bed with a severe leg cramp! Guess where? In my right calf! Yes, that's right. Picture me trying to hop off a leg cramp with a bum knee and a bad foot, nightie in a twist, and my hair standing on end as I careened into furniture because I didn't have my glasses on! Oy!
I was reminded of my sister Diana who just last week had a wasp fly into her blouse and sting the geewillikers out of her as she hopped and swatted and knocked the window blinds clean off her window!
But that's not why you called. In between practicing pratfalls, I saw the current sketch at the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge, charmingly designed by my very talented friend Michelle Williams:
Chickie Boom-Boom felt a little robbed having only part of her boom-boom self stamped in the corner, so here she is on the inside in all her glory. The beautiful NBUS sediment is from PTI's "Hello Sunshine."
I'm editing my post to enter this card in the One-Layer Christmas Card Challenge with an optional twist of green.
I want to borrow a bit more of your time while I introduce some new friends who have come to join us in the Playhouse recently. Thank you for meeting them and visiting them, if you can!
