So How’s That Blog 365 Thing Going?

Glad you asked. Being the green-shaded accountant that I am, I tallied up some numbers for the year so far:

In January, I published 44 posts in 31 days for an average of 1.42 posts per day.
In February, I published (including this one) 39 posts in 29 days for an average of 1.34 posts per day.
Year to date that is an average of 1.38 posts per day.

So far, I am far above the target of a post per day in spite of the fact that I have let many posts lie fallow in draft mode never to be published for their content has become outdated.

Let me give a quick update though on one thing that fell by the wayside posting wise at least. The foot, remember the one run over by a car? Yeah, that happened early in January. How is it now? Well, I still have a big scab on the top of my foot. In addition, the nerves in the top of my foot and the front of my shin are still not happy little campers. They complain though not nearly as loudly as they once did. I now have three pair of shoes that I can fit over the offended foot. The best news though is that in spite of the continued tenderness I intend to soon shave my legs for the first time since the accident. Once I do I will no longer present as a “hairy beast” as I have to the two men with whom I’ve been intimate in the last month and a half. Neither one seemed to mind it. I don’t believe they even noticed it until I made mention of it, but I will feel better once I’m back to silky smooth. The other remnant from the accident is that I still have a bump in my upper lip, in the center, where the casserole dish beaned me. None of the people I’ve kissed since the accident seem to have noticed it, or they’ve just been too nice to mention it, but it bothers the hell out of me. It is, thankfully, shrinking slowly and not nearly as big as it was at first. Hopefully, the accident is soon going to be but a faint memory.

Blog 365: two months down, ten to go. Will I make it? I don’t know. I suppose it depends on whether the people in my life keep giving me anxiety, frustration and angst about which to blog. I guess there are a few people I could thank for the assistance with that thus far this year, but I won’t. I wouldn’t want to encourage any of them to keep helping me that way.


And just one other thing. I weighed myself today for the first time in a long time. Since January 9 I have lost 9.5 pounds. Yay me! Particularly yay me given that I am usually an emotional eater.

Here's a funny for ya: I quit shaving after Z was born (no time, followed thereafter by WHY BOTHER?); I guess I am lucky not to be a particularly hairy beast! But P stroked my leg appreciatively a few weeks ago, murmuring "Ummmm, did you just shave?"
At which I had to burst out laughing to say, "Honey, it's been YEARS since I shaved my legs!!"
Just goes to show ya -- good lotions are wunnerful!

I hope the nerves in your foot and leg return to normal soon. I HATE that sort of pain.

Yay on the weight loss! Good for you.

Val - I'm always heartened to hear of others who don't feel the need to shave. Unfortunately though, I am a hairy beast, lots of nice dark hair covering my legs.

Bunny - I'm not too fond of this pain either. Thank you about the weight loss. I was extremely surprised, but very happy about it.
