So, I want to start posting to this journal.  lrc would probably say that I have more important things to do with my time, and he is probably right, but nonetheless, I am becoming more and more interested by the things I find other people post, and am sorry that I have nothing of my own up.  (Although I have been replying to friends' posts and posting to a couple of communities.) 

lrc will be pleased to know that I have scheduled a contractor to come by and look at the septic tank/leachfield this afternoon.  Jacobson and Daughters.  That "and daughters" won them my first call over the other contractors I found.  Go women in the trades!  And supportive papas!   Now we just have to see if they come up with a fair bid and do good work...

Anyway, the major event in my life of late is this damn broken foot.  Those of you who have been reading lrc's site will already know the details, and I realize it is old news at this point, since I broke it on May 8.  However, my next posts will be about the foot anyway.   I'll put repeats and long entries behind cuts.  You see, my mom has been on crutches since I was a kid, and being temporarily disabled has been incredible eye-opening for me.  Walking a mile in my mom's moccasins, and all that. 

Friday of this week I will get the foot x-rayed again and find out if the bone is all healed.   I'm really hoping I'll be able to start walking and dancing and getting around again.  My mom has spent 34 years on crutches.  Six weeks has been a major drag, and I've had a light at the end of the tunnel.

Ah, that sounds more like me:

You are... 3.3% unique (blame, for example, your interest in vikram seth) and
14% herdlike
(partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing).
(Normal is 30.7%, Interesting 32.7%, Peculiar 19.3%)
When it comes to friends you are lonely.
In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please.
Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is intellectual.

Your overall weirdness is: 39

(The average level of weirdness is: 27.
You are weirder than 80% of other LJers.)
