i just woke up in a great deal of pain.

i knew i was pushing it yesterday with chasing brown dog and i pushed it even further today. but i am so freaking frustrated sitting around when there is stuff that needs doing. and while i can do most of it while sitting on my butt in this gawd awful wheelchair, it is such a struggle and takes twice as long when just standing up and taking a step or two (or three, shhhh....) makes it so very much easier. and i was on a roll today, by the time i left here to go out for dinner, most of the laundry was done, all the dog and cat rooms were clean and fresh. it felt good to leave everyone in a good space and it felt good to come home again.
except, it doesn't feel all that great right now.
i am so tired of being a cripple. i know i am lucky that it is just a minor, temporary injury and not a life long condition. but it still pisses me off. why do i have so much patience for the animals disabilities and imperfections but absolutely none for human ones? actually, i know why. cuz i made a conscious choice many years ago to work really hard to help homeless animals. and this freaking hurting ankle is getting in my way!
and i would like to point out in my own self defence that over the years i have had many animal bones surgically pinned and plated back together again and NONE of them were non weight bearing for three days, let alone 3 months, that is why we plated and pinned and casted them, so they could walk....it is so not fair!
thank goodness i saved 2 tylenol #3's for emergencies cuz now i still have one left! i guess now i better be good til at least my next xray or my surgeon is going to get mad. have i said recently how much i hate this??!!!
oh, but some good news too..since i was awake anyway, i checked my email and purdy just got a great home!!! (and i get to visit too)
