I know, I know, I promise all these pictures of my various injuries and then I don't follow through. I'm sorry. I will make it up to you.

The problem is, you can't take a picture of my latest injury. My left ear started ringing/feeling "full" after having drinks with the people from The 'Burg on Wednesday night. And it hasn't stopped. Not once. Not even for a second.

So, on Sunday, I decided I should probably go in to Urgent Care as I had started getting dizzy and nauseous feeling. So I decided to wait until after the opening of the Oscars and I would make my way to the doctors.

Little did I know, this would be the best idea I have had all year. Apparently, no one needs to see the doctor during the Oscars, as I was in and out of there in under 35 minutes. Usually, you can bank on at least 2 hours for the doctor and another 45 minutes waiting for a prescription.

But, alas, there is nothing physically wrong with my ear. Apparently when you have bad allergies like I do, your ears can start ringing when new things happen to make your allergies mad. Which is the case with my ear, they have decided don't like the weather around here lately.

So, I am taking Sudafed every 4 hours. I am going to acupuncture tomorrow. And I am slowly being driven insane.

They Ain't Kidding

So, I just figured out the hard way that those expiration dates they put on the Diet Lipton Green Tea with Citrus are not just a suggestion. And, it only took me 1/2 the bottle to figure out why it tasted so bad.

I am going to wash out my mouth now.

According to K-mart (and pretty much every other commercial right now) a woman should be getting a "Heart-Shaped Diamond Necklace" for Valentine's Day - or any other myriad of Diamond things (seriously, I HATE THE HOLIDAYS because suddenly all commercials want you to believe that women are all diamond-grubbing whores who will not love you unless you buy them DIAMONDS) and men, men should receive a $6 pair of boxers with hearts on them. Or a box of candy.

How is this fair? So, in order to balance the universe a little, I will be buying The Boyfriend some horribly gaudy diamond-like heart shaped necklace for Valentine's Day. I mean, don't guys deserve to feel pretty every once in a while? How else will he know that I love him if I don't buy him something expensive? What if he stops loving me because I didn't buy him DIAMONDS?!

You're Gonna Love This

Yesterday I ran half of the park and my ankle held up nicely! No extreme swelling, no pain, nothing. It was very exciting and I was very much looking forward to using this week to building back up to running the whole park.

But life had other plans for me as I fell this morning in the parking lot at the park, re-injuring my ankle and scraping the crap out of my left knee. Luckily, my phone survived the fall after I slammed it into the curb. Apparently, I must never get rid of this phone. The ankle, on the other hand, I would love to replace.

So, I will post some pictures later of my new lovely injuries. The ankle is definitely not as bad as last time, it is very swollen right now but I am in more pain from the scraped shin than I am from the swollen ankle -which I am taking as a good sign.
