I'm still here. I have been exerting myself. To wit:
*I bought a bottle of pomegranate juice. It's sitting in the fridge.
*I bought two books on my list: The Brothers Karamasov and The Picture of Dorian Gray.
*I bought three items of clothing yesterday, (in an actual physical store), only one of which is black. (Because you can't have too many pairs of black pants.) This doesn't actually apply to my goal of going shopping with somebody who knows about fashion, but I still feel like it was a big accomplishment.
*I drew a picture of my friend Eileen for her 50th birthday. The actual picture looks more like her than this jpg, but it's still more of a "drawing" than a "portrait."
About the hand: not so good. It is somewhat less painful, off and on, and I think it looks a little better, but I don't know how much better the doc thinks it ought to be. I'm hoping to do a few cartoons this last campaign week. Most of the good ones I thought up are already stale, and the campaign is getting less and less funny. (Though I supposed a political cartoon doesn't actually have to be funny.)
I sure hope things perk up soon, because I miss whacking away at my goals list. It's such a good antidepressant.
Thanks to all of you who are checking up on me!
