The Ides of October

All my grand plans for the fall haven't really happened this year. No apple picking, no visiting King Richard's faire or attending Homecoming. It feels like this Fall has been split between Rasputin, Tae Kwon Do, and my job search. Frankly, I'm a bit exhausted!

I'm still dealing with my TKD injuries. My foot problem is really annoying. My foot hurts more if I wear practical shoes with arch support. In the morning, I hobble around like a 90 year old. I hope months of R&R will help me avoid a heel injection! I have an appointment with an orthopedist for my shoulder pain. Since I've had this problem for 6 years and the pain has just recently flared up and become steady, when I get a diagnosis I will be relieved. Also, I would like to be able to raise my left arm above my head. The grinding sound is pretty gross. I had complained about my shoulder pain 6 years ago in my outpatient stroke rehab and the response I got, "Welcome to getting older." I was 24 years old!

This weekend promises to be pretty kick ass with a day trip to Portland. I expect a lot of shopping and drinking in the Maine scene.
