I can’t tell you how I feel about you, but I wish so much that I could. Regardless, I’ll always be here for you whenever you need me, and I will always, always love you. Always.
I’m excited. For the annual spring band trip this weekend, of course. 😀
Last year we went to Cleveland, Ohio, and the central event was a day at Cedar Point. This year we’re heading off to Williamsburg, Virginia and Busch Gardens.
I’m all packed and ready to go. And I plan on getting to bed early tonight, because we have to be at the school at 5:30 am tomorrow morning. 😛
And while I’m here, I should probably give a status update on my foot. 🙂 I am walking for real, and relatively well. I got the boot off, and it feels good to be able to walk with a regular shoe on again. For a long time afterwards I was limping, but I’m not really limping that much anymore, which is a good sign. I’m still not allowed to run or jump. But once mid-June rolls around, I will be limitation-free. 🙂
So yeah. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Been busy.
Yesterday, an unbelievable thing happened – I got a cell phone! Ha. I truthfully did not think this would happen for a long time. Despite being 16 years old, I’ve never owned a cell phone up until yesterday. And while I am paying for this phone and all the bills with my own money, I think it’s well worth it. Heh, once I start paying for gas, I probably won’t have any spending money left! xD
So I realized I haven’t updated about what’s been going on with my foot in a while. I was able to start walking again over spring break (though I still have the boot on), and I’ve been walking just fine for a while now. It doesn’t hurt at all.
Unfortunately, the surgery doesn’t appear to have worked. The bunion came back.
My foot was fine after the surgery, and when I went in for my check-ups the doctor even called it “beautiful.” But recently, as of about a week ago I suppose, the bunion started clearly returning. And now it’s very obvious that it’s back, and just as bad as it was before.
I have no idea what to do about it. I talked to my mom, and she said just to wait until I saw the doctor again, but that won’t be until May 16th. I’ll probably talk to my dad about it. I don’t know how it came back, maybe from the walking, but the doctor put a metal plate in the foot and everything, and I’ve been following his instructions correctly as far as I know…
I can’t imagine that he messed up with the surgery somehow, because he’s done this several times before, and has never had a problem with anyone. So I probably screwed up somewhere, but I really don’t know what I did wrong if anything, or why this is happening. I’m kind of upset by it. Okay, I’m very upset by it.
But… I trust that God knows what he’s doing. I suppose that at this point I can only hope, trust, and pray.
The recent buzz about Osama bin Laden’s death has made me kind of uneasy. I mean, not the fact that he’s dead, but the fact that people are rejoicing about his death. He was still a fellow human being, and although he killed thousands of innocent people, I still feel we had no right to take his life in return. How does that make us any better? Anyway, I was just beginning to lose hope in this idea and think that maybe I was just looking at the situation wrong. But then I found this quote, and it put the puzzle pieces together perfectly, so it made perfect sense…
“I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Just some food for thought.
The second installment of my optical-illusions-sharing.
Okay, so honestly, this weekend is kind of an unusual one for me. I don’t normally go out with my boyfriend two nights in a row and then have a sleepover with my sister and god-sister. But, that’s what I did this weekend. 🙂
The first night (Friday), Nathan and I went to see the movie Hop. It was a cute movie, and although the beginning was a bit slow, it picked up after a little while and became more interesting. And in a way this was a sad night for me, because I lost my chap stick. 😦 Okay, so I guess it wasn’t that sad, but I still would rather not have lost it. 😛 Nathan wanted to play a Pacman arcade game, but he didn’t have any quarters, just dollar bills. Well, not a problem, I had quarters. So I took out my wallet, but as I did so, my chap stick came out too and rolled right under the arcade game next to me. It was impossible to retrieve it, because you couldn’t reach under the machine. *sigh* Oh, well. I told Nathan we might as well make it worth it, so I gave him the quarter, but the game didn’t work even when he put it in. Then we realized a sticker at the top that said 50 cents per play, so we put in another of my quarters, but still nothing happened. So the game cost us 50 cents and a tube of chap stick, and it didn’t even work.
So that was our exciting story of the evening.
The next night (Saturday), he and I went out to play pool (as in billiards) and get pizza. That was fun. 🙂 I won 5 games out of 5. Both of us are pretty bad at pool though, we just enjoy playing it. 🙂
So after my night with Nathan, I headed over to my god-sister’s house where my sister was too. We had a pretty late night, didn’t get to bed until 2 in the morning, but we got to sleep in. 🙂 I’m still here at her house, and presently we are all on our computers.
