Mixed feelings

This weekend left me feeling strange….

I kinda feel like this….

I wanna scream… but in both a good way and a bad way.

I found the perfect yard of linen fabric for a super important, super secret embroidery project. The Fabric Wars event had barely started, and it only cost me a dollar, but it’s exactly what I was hoping to find. Now I can proceed with the next stage: actual embroidery. I’ve got both lots of time and no time to do it in, but I’m confident I can finish in time with no problem.

On the down side, I spent much of the weekend exhausted and in pain. Sleep was weird and uncomfortable, and my back is angry with me. Between the pain and the poor sleep, I couldn’t really focus on much of anything most of yesterday. I felt bad for everyone at the event because they had to be around me with the mood I was in. If you’re reading this and you were there, sorry. I should’ve put on a better face regardless of what I felt like.

My foot was hurting, too, and I’m starting to get worried. Intellectually I know that since it’s not broken from the last time I injured it, that means it’s a soft tissue injury… Which means I need to just take it easy and let it heal. My concern, though, is that I have no time in the next couple of weeks where I can take off early from work to go to the podiatrist. So the increased pain and limping around can’t be addressed yet. I’m sure I’ll be okay in the long run, but in the meantime I can’t, well, run.

I’m still debating on whether or not the good of finding the perfect fabric for what I need to do outweighs the bad of the pain in my back and foot.

Hopefully no surprises this week. My schedule should be decent, or rather should be semi-normal, and I will be back to work on the sequel to Abnormal in the mornings. Life should settle down a bit. I hope.
