Update: Rotten Finger
Commitments are something I strongly believe in upholding, and although I haven’t made any explicit committments here on how often I will post, I have been trying to offer up something most every day. My goal is to either surprise/delight/challenge/humor you each week day and over time build a community of SafariMamas.
But today I’m struggling. I have a painful and persistent infection in my left pinky finger that keeps getting bigger, angrier, yuckier, no matter what kind of antibiotics I throw at it. Evidently I have bad manicure Karma to pay back–and am struggling to type (and stay upright, frankly). The ordeal (which is admittedly barely qualifies as an ordeal as of yet, but we’re monitoring carefully) has made me disproportionately weepy and worried about my mortality. My love is even going to come home this afternoon to set his computer up next to mine so that we can work in companionable silence, and so I feel I’m not ALONE in this pain, in this life. Plus he went to the dentist this morning, and might need a bit of the same.
