Healing Comes First

A sappy name for a blog entry, I know, but there's a reason for it.

Last Wednesday I sprained my ankle in rehearsal. Turns out I did more than that, I strained a tendon and a muscle in my right leg. I went in for physical therapy today and it's going to be okay, it's just going to take a few weeks to heal. The lesson I learned from this experience is how important regular exercise and stretching are - apparently being out of shape and not flexible enough led to the injury.

I know, some of you may be surprised, you've seen me as a pretty fit person. But I let this show get to me and I wasn't working out regularly.

So, the regular updates about getting organized are going to have to wait. I have to focus on myself first (which yes, does involved scheduling time for myself to do my stretches) and moving objects around later.

I thought about posting pictures of my foot, ankle and calf which have swelled to twice their normal size - but then decided I wanted people to keep reading my blog, not be turned off by it!
