A Number of Things  
A couple of weeks ago, I got out of bed and could barely stand on my left foot. I thought I had bruised it or something so iced it and wrapped it. It still bothers me so the other day I figured I'd look up the symptoms online. It sounds like I have Plantar fasciitis "is inflammation, usually due to injury, of the plantar fascia, the ligament between the front of the heel bone and the base of the toes that helps to support the arch. It causes severe pain on the bottoms of the feet, especially in the morning." According to self-treatment, I have to ice it 3-4 times a day, wear arch supports, don't go barefoot, and stretch it. If it's still not better in another week or two, I'll go to the doctor.

In happier news, I'm going to my first spring training game of the year on Saturday to see the Mets v. Cardinals and if there are no changes to the rotation, I think we'll be seeing Santana!

Writing has slowed but I will make myself work on it and I've also been doing some more cross-stitch.

I had to make sure there was at least one there that people would know (other than my sister). The foot's doing better today, thanks.

Yes, it was you. Thanks for that. I knew you'd like the songs but you didn't get the quote. It's from a poet you like who makes it somewhat seasonal (due to his nationality)
