No, I have not died,  nor have I fallen off the face of the earth…  I took a break from the gym to fly to Oregon for my son’s 3rd brain surgery, and have brought him home with me.  But this is not the reason I have not been at the gym or blogging, MY KNEES HURT!

I have heard exercise is supposed to improve your mood.  I was hoping I’d hit the gym, get on the treadmill and be all happy like freakin’ Snow White;  doves landing on my finger, Bambi and Thumper running along side of me and little sparrows tying bows in my hair.  I got squat.  Where are the endorphins?

Day 3… OWWWWW!!!!!!

February 24, 2010

Cripes!  I do have a blister on my left foot.  about the size of a large Lima bean.  I hate Lima beans.

It is just below my big and second toe.  Cripes!  I wore moleskin all day yesterday and let it “breathe” last night.  It is not as tender this morning but still hurts.  The blister is not the only thing that hurts…
