Just a quick update. I had foot surgery on my left foot yesterday. It was either what's called a morton's neuroma (a benign growth on the bottom of my foot) or just so much permenent nerve pressure in the ball of my foot. I had predinose first, then cortisone shots. Then an mri which ruled out some stuff but it still could have been the neuroma. We tried a last round of cortisone shots, but none of it helped. So i had surgery on it. It went well and fast, and i recovered pretty fast from the iv sedation. It was an outpatient surgery and i could walk on it with a special shoe. Mostly i'm just supposed to walk to go to the bathroom. I have good pain meds and i'm really tired as i'm not sleeping well. But overall i'm doing well as can be expected. I have crosswords, books and my kids and husband to fetch things for me. I am sort of bored though, so if anyone wants to chat, hit me up. Til later loves.
My stupid stone bruise/metatarsalgia whatever has been acting up again fierce in the last 3 months, and I finally got it together enough to make a doctor's appointment. I have the same insurance, they just reorganized it and rebranded it, so I can see a local doctor. So off I went about a week and half ago.
She looked at my x rays from last year, and at my foot, and then she recommended I see a podiatrist. I was very glad about that, as that's what I wanted over a year ago from the GP in Iowa City who pretty much told me that there was nothing they could do. The new doctor gave me some pain pills (which don't do a darn thing, really..) and now my podiatry appointment is this coming Monday afternoon.
I'll be glad to get the ball rolling on this. It's been about 3 and a half years total of on and off pain and if there's something I can do to get it to be LESS pain, I'm all for it.
It's been hard the last couple weeks because as I've said before, I have no physical symptoms with this injury. I have a little lump in my foot and a small black mark there. But I have no swelling, I'm not bleeding or have an obvious wound. I do limp because it hurts in the ball of my foot, and the more I stand the worse it is. So yeah, I'm just wanting some answers and stuff.
That's what's going on with me.
My 8 year old girl:
(We start with me, actually..) Me: wait, come here. Let me see your arm.
Me: What's this from? (It's a claw mark on her arm that's actually bruising.)
Her: From the cat.
Me: From the CAT? WHEN!
Her: Yesterday. (she's a girl of few words most of the time)
Me: Why didn't you tell me?
Her: I DID! (What probably happened was that she did yell "the cat scratched me" and I probably replied "were you bothering him", to which the answer is always no, and only about 20 percent of the time it is the cat's starting it. She said nothing at the time about him actually hurting her)
Me: Next time, if you're injured let me know so I can look at it and get a bandaid on it. (as I'm putting antibiotic and a bandaid on it 24 hours after the attack.)
And of course, she's not a fan of me checking it and changing the bandaid.. she's always "why?".. She doesn't get that we have to protect it so it heals.
Ah, motherhood. Never a dull moment.

So, uh, yeah.
I've had a nagging cough/sniffles since Saturday, and now cold sores from it. yay. But I'm glad that my back is feeling mostly better (mucked it up again Saturday.) But I really am blessed. I have a roof over my head, a job that I like most of the time, family and friends that love me, food in my cupboards, and my online friends who love and understand me no matter what. So yeah, you guys are awesome. *hugs*
I'd better get those errands run. It's cold and windy and blah, but I'm still gonna have a sunshiny day in my head for a change!
Til later, loves.
Home stuff is going okay. Same old same old from there. Trying another new medicine for my son and his aspergers/adhd, so we'll see how that goes.
Work is going okay too. I still like most of my coworkers and my job isn't bad, but I don't trust some people and I'm so going to try to go back to school after the first of the year and when I get the money for the classes/tests. It's only $205 for all of it, but it's still a good chunk of change with life and bills and such. I'm saving up for it.
The anniversary of my mom's death is tomorrow, and I always get a bit melancholy, even after all these years. It'll be 16 years, my dad has been gone 17 years this last July. I just finally got some grief guilt a couple of years ago about the way I treated my mom after my dad's death, and even though I can't do anything about it now, it's still a nagging feeling at times.
I'm turning 35 next week, which for some reason seems like a bigger deal to me than 30. Maybe it's because I've usually got a lot on my mind, regarding who I really am, who I'd like to be, what I should do, what I've done in the past, and so on. I'm taking the day off of work, and it's payday, so the only plans I have so far is to go out to eat at one of my favorite restaurants. And that's about it. Unless I can figure out something else, but I'm not really the party/celebrating excessive type.
Me and the fam went to my best friend's wedding on Friday. It was beautiful but a little chilly. There are some pictures of me and the family and some other friends on my photobucket. Those are here.
Anyway, not much else going on here. It's unseasonably cold, of which I am NOT A FAN. But that's Iowa for you.
Uh, I think that's about it. Sorry, I'm a bit out of it today. I have a slight migraine and I need a nap, which I have on the schedule for after lunch. Til later, loves. <3

Summary: Sherlock punches Mycroft. But that isn't the end of it. Not even close.
A/N: I don't even know where this came from.. I was writing another Sherlock fic, and then I got an idea from that, and this came out. It is a WIP. Also here at AO3.
( It happened quickly.Collapse )
Frustrated with my piece of crap phone. Today it wouldn't swipe to unlock and i had to take the battery off to fix it. And lately its been saying the sd card has been removed or is absent, when i haven't touched the damn sd card because getting it out is like trying to play operation.
My husband got a new phone in July and its the same one i want. He said that if i didn't get it for myself by my birthday (which is less than a month now) he'd buy it for me. But money is so tight now that isn't happening. I understand, but part of me isn't happy about that. If the phone can last that long, hopefully i can save $20 a week from my tip money for it, and then use any money i might get from family for my birthday and some from my check to make up the difference. It's not totally critical, but sometimes i just can't seem to get nice things and it irritates me. -_-
Okay, rant over. ~carry on~
