Butterfly Lady

I failed.

I started out the month with good intentions to post everyday. I'm disappointed in myself for not having completed my task. For the most part I did pretty well, until I went on vacation. I had a laptop with me, but no charger. My cell phone was supposed to be able to access the internet, but didn't work once I landed in London. There was an internet cafe near the tube station by my hotel, but after walking all over every day, I would go to my hotel and not want to leave again for the night. I did manage a voice post (from Atlanta) and a post from London. I missed about five days of posting. I was going to 'cheat' and post my vacation days as they happened, but I'm not going to. I am going to write about my vacation. I did say in my first post this month that I am a horrible procrastinator. I like to write, but when I feel like I have to, it makes me not want to. I find myself writing my post in my head, but when I sit down to write nothing comes out.

I was going to write today, but I found myself trapped in middle earth all day. TNT had all three Lord of the Rings movies on today. It was nice. I went to the doctor's this past Monday. I have a sprained ankle (I fell on my last day in London.) and have to wear a walking boot for four weeks. I'm supposed to wear it when I don't have my feet up. I've had it off all day and my ankle pops every time I step (I know, kind of gross.) and it's sore. I got a flu shot on Monday. I'm feeling a little sick, sore throat and runny nose, blech. I don't know if it's from the flu shot or being around my niece and nephew this week. They've been sick as well.

I bought some tea at Twinings when I was in London. I should make some, see if it helps.

This song was on a cassette tape that my mom would play for us around this time of year. Please disregard the video. Just listen to the audio.
