Three weeks ago I found a new reason to hate Mondays. Not that I needed any additional reasons to not like the day. It’s the day most people call the beginning of the work week. Some people are in the process of recovering from things they did over the weekend. It seems to rain on Monday more than any other day of the week. We are suppose to hate Mondays, Garfield said so. Tori Amos wrote a song “I Don’t Like Mondays.” While the title might give one the impression that she doesn’t really like Mondays, she goes on to sing “I want to shoot the whole day down, Down, Down, Shoot it all Down.” That takes not liking something to the hate level, and maybe a little further.
Today, Monday got a little easier to like. I went to the Ortho and they removed my first cast. She looked everything over and it appears to be doing really well. I was able to move my foot to almost ninety degrees without assistance. The calf muscle is working and the tendon didn’t hurt when she was pushing and prodding. I’m back in a cast but my foot is nearly 90 degrees. The best part is I should have the cast off in 1 1/2 weeks. I can start PT in two weeks.
I can hardly wait. Today, just this little glimmer of hope and the fact I could move my foot, gave me one reason to not hate Mondays quite as much.
