I've made it back home, landed in Little Rock after a very long, very boring, very tiring four hours of flying and two hours of layover in Houston. We did meet this kid on the plane who goes to a very small private school in northwest Arkansas that we had never heard of. Seemed like a very nce person, and he likes Celtic music so we instantly had things to talk about. Made for good productive time wasting as we sat in Wendy's.
In the afternoon, we went to the doctors to have my staples removed. The removal of the staples went well, better O tjoml tjam the last time I had them taken out. I couldn't remember what my plan was for weight bearing i.e. when could I walk. Apparently, broke my femur at quite a high point on the bone. So the total tme until I can think about starting to put weight on it is five more weeks, adding it up to be a total of eight.
I'm resigned to my fatenow, but when I found out that it was going to be so long, I was again, angry at myself for reaking this bones, and also mad that I break bones period. For those of you who don't know, I have a bone condition that makes my bones become more dense (too dense in fact), and contrary to what you might think, my limbs mostly, become very brittle. I've got to think of some way that can get through life without these dead times. Its not that I don't have things to do or wn't have things to do in the comng weeks, but he quiet of this house is so oppressive. Its hard.
So latey I've been trying to come up with ways to resume my positive state of mind and keep going. I've been pretty successful (reading books, watching movies, listening to music) but I still can't help but have times of frustration and negativity. The main thing that I have to come to terms with is that it probably is not ligistically possible for me to even think of coming back, mostly because of the end of the semester which is so close. I just miss my friends and the oportunities I've found to socialize and hang out. There's not much oportunity to do that here, except I could of course try to socialize with some cows but I heard they don't make very good friends so I'll probably not even try that.
I'm doing fine this morning. I've got class in two hours so I'm trying to quickly drink some coffee so I can wake up sufficiently to think. Not much else but class is planned for today. Perhaps I'll watch Matrix Reloaded today as yes I know, I'm behind in the series. I enjoyed watching Seabiscuit yesterday. It was overcoming obstacles in life at its best.
And that's where it'll have to end. I'll write more often now that I have more time. More soon.
