Bec - Congratulations! That's exciting news and it feels good to be acknowledged for hard work, you should be proud!
Real - I hope you and Gaye are off running together today, it seems like a little dingo togetherness might be a good tonic to soothe some of the altered reality in your neighborhood.
Gaye - Seriously, that's A LOT of babies!
JayGee - I hate this stuff.
Nic - I love that you and dh are dating. Did you see this going around on FB yesterday? Some of it hit awfully close to home for me but it was so well said. What's a DBQ question?
Mel38 - So is the MCM supposed to be your last hurrah at running? You okay? It must be hard news to hear.
MelW - Feeling any better?
RR: Boxing is still fun but I am a little more wary about doing something that will make my hip/groin pain flare up. On Thursday I started to feel it on the other side when I did a lunge so I quit that right away and it was okay later into the class when we did more lunges. But then last night I went to a movie with a friend and walking back to her house afterward I was gimping along like a crone. It just felt like the muscles keeping my left hip working were all arguing over which one had to actually do something so with every step I felt like I might just suddenly not be able to hold myself up. Sitting just seems to kill me.
NRR: Of course all of this might be exacerbated by how far off the wagon I've been the past couple weeks. I have really been giving myself all these excuses for eating stuff that I know is a bad idea, lots of sugar, lots of grains. I'm trying hard to get it back together but my family is finally in full revolt mode. With the kids getting treats in school nearly every day it's harder for them to get past the craving stage and I don't know how to stop them from eating what is being provided without accepting a lot of ill-will and extra work. And then dh obviously doesn't feel compelled to stay away from sugar. Although he doesn't eat it in front of me so much I can tell by the way the jams are disappearing that someone is mainlining it and I'm pretty sure it isn't the girls. Of course that makes me feel like I'm being left out to dry when I try to rein in the kids but is it the hill I want to die on (see link above)?
Anyway, time to go, I'm substitute coaching dh's soccer team this morning so he can watch C's off-island game.
