Good grief! I’ve missed a couple of days of blogging. I’m sorry!
I spent today at the Orthopedic Clinic in Orlando – just walking in I knew I was in trouble from a time standpoint. Have you ever walked into a doctor’s office and had not one, not two but four … FOUR … receptionists helping incoming wounded? And then when I noticed the woman next to me get handed a pager (you know the type that they use in Panera and other restaurants that vibrate when they’re ready for you?) I nearly walked out straight away!
So, after a mere 90 minute wait, I was escorted to a “room.” I will save you the details but was X-rayed by a crazy woman, had no less than a series of three nurses who all tried to get me “signed in” at one time or another (the X-ray tech ended up signing me in) and saw the doctor for (maybe) ten minutes. Plantar Faciitis in both feet. $35 insoles and the male nurse taped one foot (not sure why only one but when I asked he said “orders” were for the left only. Whatever.) I was on my way home by 1:00pm – 2 1/2 hours after darkening the doorstep. Geesh.
I did start a second stock… um, Christmas gift today and almost got the cuff completed. Progress. And I’ve started a really cute Shawlette in an unknown but very soft (maybe alpaca or cashmere blended with angora) lace-weight yarn in a lovely light gray shade. I think it’s going to be very pretty. And also started another shawl in a Noro colorway. Pics tomorrow because it’s too late now. Sorry (#2).
Tonight my first class which runs for five weeks. I’m going to earn my Florida teaching certification. They say it’s a nine month program but I’m hoping that after the first class they’ll let me “double up” and cut my time in half since I’m not working full-time out of my home. It was fun! Technology in the classroom. They didn’t have that when I was in school!
Knit on – and sleep well!
