Looks like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays

February 9, 2009

Two more days and my life with be much closer to normal. I’ll be able to shower without worrying about getting my foot wet, and I’ll be able to drive. Not being able to shower is more of a nuisance. I can’t get ready in a hurry, and I don’t feel completely clean after taking a bath. Not being able to drive is terrible though. This weekend I was fortunate enough to have a Patricia Drive friend, Chasity, come in town, be my chauffeur, and keep me company. My parents and Jonathan have also been very nice about taking me places, but it’s still hard to go back to being dependent on other people to go anywhere. It’s not like I can walk anywhere either. So I’m looking forward to Wednesday and hoping I get the all clear to drive.

At my doctor appointment last week I was amused to see my new foot. I’ve always had skinny feet, but having the joints on either side of my foot straightened up has taken my feet to a new level of skinny. It felt like I was looking at someone else’s foot – except my second toe is still ridiculously long. He said everything is healing well. I saw the xrays and locations of the pins. It’s all very fascinating.

I’ve been looking at graduate programs around Atlanta. Georgia State has a communications program with an emphasis in mass communication. Not sure if this is what I want. I’m not sure what I want period. I need to go ahead and sign up for the GRE and start studying for that.

Something I’ve been thinking about and haven’t been able to figure out – I don’t know what to do when I feel that people I love are unhappy and I can’t do anything to help. We all have friends and family who have problems – money problems, relationship problems, personal problems – that only they can do anything about. Or maybe they can’t even do anything about them. How am I supposed to live and act knowing they aren’t happy, and I can’t do anything about it? I wish I could fix things. I wish I could make someone never be lonely or never have to worry about money. But obviously I can’t. So what am I supposed to do?

It’s a beautiful day outside. I love winter in Georgia because of days like this. I’ll be going back home today, and I’m looking forward to getting a little bit of normal back. I sure do miss my mama’s cooking when I go home though.
