Owww, my foot  
Last night, I was getting ready to take a shower and I noticed that the old conditioner bottle that I had washed out but not taken to the recycling yet (because I was waiting for it to dry) had been moved to the other side of the tub, so I figured that I'd throw it in the recycling before I got in. In a rush, I grabbed the bottle, stepped out of the bathroom, and rammed my foot directly into the kitchen doorframe in what was probably the most painful stubbed toe I've ever had in my life.

At least, I hope it's just stubbed. It might be broken, and looking on the internet seems to reveal no commonality in symptoms. I can move all my toes, my foot supports my weight, it's swollen but not bruised, the toe is at an angle but only a small one and that's probably caused by swelling since there's no pain when I manually move it back into place...but all that might mean nothing! Who knows!

At least the internet isn't telling me it's cancer, which is actually pretty good for looking up medical problems online.

I have an appointment with our doctor on Friday, so I'll see what he says and what I should do. In the meantime, I'm at work with my foot propped up on my computer box, and occasionally propped up on my knee. It's a bit awkward, but not as awkward as the walk to work was.

So that's my birthday so far!

Ice and anti-inflammatories.

That is my plan as soon as I get home.

Careful, it may be contagious!


Anyway, like I mentioned on twitter, I've done that before. Just be careful around it and let it heal.
