The only time I’m really pain-free is on the chaise in the family room.

Happy Saturday morning to you and yours. It’s 7:30 a.m., and I’m slowly “coming back” from several very, very weird days on the chaise in the family room because I was in too goddamn much pain to sit or walk. I can’t believe how I’m deteriorating. Since my last post I’ve been dealing with the following issues: 1) severe pain in my left heel from diabetic neuropathy (30%) and twin bleeding blisters (70%); 2) knee pain; 3) burning skin on the back of my left thigh; 4) a urinary tract infection with a low-grade fever; 5) a hyperactive bladder that exploded every 60 minutes, 24 hours a day for three straight days; 6) migraine headaches after waking up to pish out of a sound sleep due to item #5; and 7) a hangnail. I’m sick of this shit. I’m exhausted, my sense of humor is in shreds and I have a craving for spaghetti and meatballs. No kidding.

Today’s freebies are an exciting crowd of fancy display fonts and one very gorgeous script. I’m especially hysterical about “Cowboy Burt,” “Bullstander Script” and “Bleeding Sharpie,” and also find myself developing a fondness for “Inkling” and “MooMoo.” I can’t wait to use lots of these new fonts for greeting cards! Incidentally, “Crepes” is an interesting layering font with 25 different stripes, checks, shadows and so on. You’ll find download links below the graphic in case you want any of these for your personal collection. (You’re welcome.)

I’ve only been awake for three fucking hours but already I’m in too much pain to continue writing this post. For the time being I’m only really pain-free on the chaise, where there’s zero pressure on my foot. So I think I’ll go back to the chaise and ask Sam to bring me the remote and a cup of Jell-O. (I think Jell-O has secret medicinal qualities.)

Thank you for reading this and please do your best to remember the Alamo once in a while.
