Lots of Catching Up to Do

First order of business… I was saddened today to learn of the death of Bea Arthur, one of my favorite “Golden Girls.” I actually had the DVD playing when I read the news online. It’s good to know I’ll always be able to enjoy the shows, even though now two of the girls are gone.

Last night, I played a long, hard three-set match of tennis and lost. Bummer. The worst part, however, was not the loss, but I injured an already weakened toenail, and now, I think I’m going to lose it. I’ve had some sort of “thing” going on with my right foot big toenail for about a year…areas where the nail seems to die…black spots underneath, etc. Last night, the running and hard stops crunched my toenail against the leather of my tennis shoe too many times. This morning, I woke up with a black toenail, and in trying to clip the nail, apparently allowed the blood and watery gunk to come out. Actually, as gross as it sounds, it allowed the painful pressure to subside a bit, and for the nail to settle back down on the nailbed. It’s still very painful and hard to wear shoes, but I know it will be worse if the nail falls off. We’ll see if I can play tennis again tomorrow, but right now, it seems doubtful.

Now, all the way back to Easter weekend. Sandee (Kimmy’s real name) and I went to Tallassee to meet my parents. They got along great! It went better than I even thought, with her feeling comfortable, and my parents being charmed by her personality and tales about her family. Read the rest of this entry »
