:: Today -- I've been hobbling around because my left heel is hurting for some reason. I am not sure why. I can't recall stepping on anything, etc. It's been hurting since Saturday, so weird. I've been icing it, and some times it hurts more than others. I hope I am not getting a bone spur or something. Grrr. Please say a little prayer for me!
