  1. Nama I like this post! You should call me and tell me more about this foot injury you have. It sounds.....sad.:)

  2. Bored, not depressed. I'm with you. 3 months later and I'm up and about, but it still hurts and I still can't go up on my tippy toes or wear closed toe shoes. Keep it up and call your doctor and tell them that they are an ass.

  3. I'm sorry for your foot, but I am happy that my tag alleviated some of your boredom--or maybe you only did it because you were bored. Maybe I've only made it worse...but I could really make you happier by finally giving you back your book when I come back to Provo.
