Last night I got a shot of motivation right before bed and decided to vacuum the living room. We have this little tray table, like for serving breakfast in bed, Riley uses it for a homework table. It was in the middle of the floor in my way, and I didn't want to turn off the vacuum to move it, so I just kicked it with my bare foot. Well, the wrong part of my foot, hit the wrong part of the table, and I jammed one of my toes pretty hard. At first I didn't think anything about it, just hurt like any time you hit your toe. But then I was up most of the night in pain, and this morning I could tell it was broken. I didn't go to the Dr., because for one thing, I don't have insurance, but also I've had broken toes before (I'm kinda a Klutz!) and I know all they can do is tape it up. So, that's what I did.
The first thing I thought was, "I don't think I can ride, I won't be able to shift." But this week is pretty busy so I probably wouldn't have gotten out anyways. And in my experience with my other broken toes, they all healed up pretty quickly.
So, anyways, the moral of the story is....
Don't vacuum barefoot.
Or don't be lazy and kick stuff out of the way.
Or just don't vacuum at all.
