And since it's a short week, it's the Thursday (but really is Friday for the working stiffs) Happy Dance. I could do a sort of Thursday (but really is Friday for the working stiffs) Happy Gimp. I can move around at an impressive-with-a-pin-in-my-foot gate in my very fashionable black and Velcro Foot Boot. The drawback of the Foot Boot is that it is unbelievably hot. I mean like skin is sweating off hot. Not quite as hot as Lisa at the Hacienda, but pretty dumb hot. Scratchy, itchy hot. Bummer but necessary for some mobility. Of course, it makes me rethink this whole timing thing but can't do a thing about it now. Nope, I have a Pin in my foot and there isn't a darn thing that I can do but wait it out. And I will wait it out.

I work in Human Resources and I am very diligent about making sure that my benefits colleagues have the proper paperwork for FLMA, the sick time that I am out of the office. Now, for the majority of the time that I have been off, I have been working but ssshhhh, don't tell anyone. So I had to ask my podiatrist's office to send in the paperwork telling Calvin that I would be off and could return on 7/7. Well, my doctor's office sent in paperwork that let work know that I would be off for six weeks with an additional 1-3 weeks. I spent the evening contemplating the prospect of having an entire six to nine weeks off, just me and my pin. What would I do with all that time? I could watch the Weather Channel; I could listen to Music on our Music channels on HD; I could play frisbee with Mr. Handsome. Yeah, I could just hang. So I contemplated such nerdness of hanging with the machines, my Weather Channel and Handsome Boy and well, decided to to back to work. Yeah, not sure what I was thinking.

We had stunning storms come through here. While I was working on my work writing projects, I enjoyed the shows provided by Mother Nature. They were magnificant. Sheeting, sheering, driving rain; loud and vivid thunder and lightening; and then woo hoo, hail. Small but hail nonetheless. And we enjoyed the small town feeling of the local news that centered around the storm - uprooted trees, flooded streets and downed power lines. *Giggle* I love living here.

Enjoying the movies . Lots of sun for the 4th of July. Enjoy your evening.
