Do you ever have those idiot moments that you would give anything to take back? I had one last night. I had my finger in the wrong place as I was setting my horse's hoof down, and before I had an opportunity to move it, he put his weight down. OWWWWW.
You can read more about how it happened on my horse blog. For the purposes of this blog, though, fast forward to this morning, when I started learning how to type with only 9 fingers. It turns out the most common finger used in typing is your left-hand middle finger... the one I hurt, obviously. (Not that I'm complaining -- I'm actually quite glad it was not my right hand, since I am right handed.)
Trying to blog on Percocet is also very interesting, by the way. I wrote that post on my horse blog while feeling the lovely effects of that drug, and am doing so again now.
Of course, I have a due date looming, so my editor will have to be informed. I wanted to wait, though, until I had an idea of how well I'd be able to type. The verdict: I should be able to, just rather more slowly than usual.
I took today off from the nanny job, though I am going to try to go back to work tomorrow. Next week, I have some plans for my blogs. I've started slowly switching my blogs over to the new Blogger template designer, and I'm thinking of totally redoing this blog, as well. I had planned to redo my website to expand on the services and portfolio sections a little, but since I've backed off that a little in order to focus on fiction a little more, that doesn't make sense anymore. I think therefore that a new website might better reflect my new focuses in my freelancing.
I do plan on taking advantage of having a little extra time to work on my blogs, but I also want to make sure that I don't make any important decisions under the influence of Percocet, so I will probably wait until I'm not so dependent on it to make any major decisions!
