consider the thumb

and how much we take it for granted! I believe I may have sprained my right thumb, caught, as it were, in the loop of a dog leash when said dog took off out the door with her usual enthusiasm, pulling the leash taut around my thumb! Crunch! It's amazing how limited my activity has become with the onset of pain. Fortunately I am able to type here at the keyboard, but even that has its limits. I am most distressed that other activity (gripping, for instance--we have no idea how often we grip in the course of the day), has had to come almost to a screeching halt, which means that my office, within reach of being cleaned up this afternoon, must now wait for its due reward. Sigh. Just one more thing...

After all, it IS the opposable thumb that separates us from the lower forms of primates, isn't it? Perhaps yours is telling you it's okay to slow down and smell the roses for a bit - from the pics on your blog, looks like you've been working yourself half to death. Must say, though, that the house is looking absolutely beautiful - I love your decorating taste! Take care of that thumb, girlfriend. Hugs, Kath
