Hey guys! I meant to get this post up yesterday but so much has been going on that the blog had to take a back burner for a few days. Thanks for hanging in with me!
Labor Day Weekend
I hope everyone had a nice LBW holiday. Mind kind of didn’t go quite as planned because there was a huge hail storm here Friday afternoon that knocked out the power.
I had no electricity or AC. It was so hot that Lily was freaking out, and she kept me up until the middle of the night. So I ended up sleeping really late on Saturday and was pretty much worthless!! Except for a good 1,000m swim at the gym (part of which also did not have AC). I worked around the house on Sunday and worked on Monday.
Note to self: buy flashlight and unscented candles. My brain hurt from all of the tropical / peaceful / holiday scents going on in my house.
Hokies Season Opener
I was super tired when I got home from work on Monday, but I really felt the need to be with some fellow Hokies as we took on Ohio State. It was our first game of the season and it was a home game! So I hopped in my car and drove an hour to watch the game Uptown with our alumni association.
There were hundreds of people there and it was crazy and fun. Too bad we lost…. and our QB broke his collar bone. I think our season is not looking too hot.
Tuesday morning was a painful reminder that I’m not as youthful as I once was
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I finished the Ikea dresser. It only took a month, 4 trips to lowe’s, 3 trips to hobby lobby and an SOS trip to hobby lobby by my coworker. I’m happy with the finished product but I still need to move it into my bedroom. Here’s what it looked like prior to painting.
So I spent a good portion of my evening yesterday in Urgent Care waiting to get my foot x-rayed. The euphoria from my dry needling adventure lasted approximately 48 hours… my foot was killing me yesterday. The NP said she didn’t see anything on the x-ray but that I would need to wait for a radiology report, and that she recommended following up with my orthopedic surgeon. So looks like I will be making an appointment sometime soon. This has all been disheartening as my knee has improved so much…. wonder if I will ever get back on track for regular workouts. I wonder if my ortho missed me
P.S. Does anyone else get embarrassed that you leave butt prints on the exam table? #keepinitreal
I know I’m a little late, but did you have a good Labor Day? Do anything fun?
