Again, time is flying and I have so many other things to do I completely forgot about the old blog. Since my last entry, the kids went trick-or-treating on a rainy Halloween night and scored ridiculous amounts of candy that I am still munching on almost daily. Both kids decided they were too old to go out and then at the last minute decided they needed to go. I had already worked in the rain all day, so Gene was kind enough to take them. I had my 41st birthday and was not using a walker or any other old people device. 40 pretty much sucked, so I'm glad to have it behind me. Logan celebrated his 11th birthday with everything Minecraft. I am so sick of this stupid game that both kids play endlessly and has no beginning, end or point.
Logan received a metal detector as his birthday present from my parents. His new thing is treasure hunting. We've been out three times and he hasn't found anything of value, not even a penny, but he loves everything he does find. Fish hooks, sinkers, random pieces of metal large and small... He is accumulating a large collection of useless junk. I bird and look for rocks and stuff while he digs up his latest piece of rusty barge. It's pretty fun and gets us out of the house and into the great outdoors.
My foot. I don't even know what to say about it. Every time I feel confident that it's getting better, it flares and puts me in my place. I'm currently going through a series of alcohol injections that are supposed to help or even completely end the nerve pain from my surgery last year. I usually just have some tingling and numbness below my pinky toe, but for some reason the pain started flaring again a few weeks ago. The shots themselves are no big deal, but for hours afterward it feels like what your mouth feels like on Novocain. Then I have several days of pressure pain that is pretty bad the two days after the injection and slowly gets better over the week until my next injection. Actually, I'm awake right now because the weird pain and itching from yesterday's injection is keeping me from sleep. I hopefully only have one more injection, but may have up to four more. Ugh. Stupid foot.
I've got a bunch of other stuff I'm working on and will probably not post again anytime soon. It's a busy time of year, I guess.
