Hello all! Sorry I’ve been MIA lately with the blog. Things just got so busy with the move and with work/residency that something had to give, so I took a little break from writing.
We’re pretty much mostly settled into our new place and getting back to a regular schedule, so hopefully I will get back to writing regularly again.
I don’t have much to say right now, but will just fill ya in on a few updates:
OUR NEW PLACE:
I am absolutely in love with our new place! I LOVE the view. I LOVE all the space we have, and I LOVE the area. We essentially have a two bedroom, so the second bedroom is set up like an office area. We have a lot of closet space, and we agreed that I get 3/4 of the closet space, so it works out perfectly : )
I’m further from the hospital than I was before. I used to be able to walk to work in about 7 minutes. Now I have a ten minute bike ride. I know…. such a rough commute ; ). In the winter I will probably take the bus to work, which is a straight shot to the hospital and probably only about a 15 minute ride.
Moving has been a slow, exhausting process. It literally had me wiped out the entire week, and then the next weekend I had to cover a night shift, which took another several days to recover from. This weekend I FINALLY had some time to recover from everything. I was more tired than I thought and fell asleep watching TV with Dean at 7 pm Friday night. True story. I’m such a boring girlfriend. Haha.
So here’s what our place originally looked like when we first moved in:
Looks like an episode from Hoarders, right? Haha.
A week later we got it looking like this:
We still have some work to do, which I’m hoping we’ll get done by tonight!
In addition to taking a break from writing, I’ve taken a break from working out. I’ve hardly worked out at all the past 2-3 weeks. I have just been too tired and figured it was a good time to let my heel heal. I’ve decided that what I have is bad plantar fasciitis (pf), which unfortunately can take a long frickin time to heal. I had no idea how painful pf could be! I was forcing Dean to try to massage it out, and I literally jumped off the couch it hurt so much. I originally thought it was fractured, because it was so focally tender in some spots, but then I sorta “accidentally” stuck my foot in the xray beam when I was working in the fluoroscopy room and didn’t see any fracture line : )
Anyone else dealt with pf? How long did it take to get better? What did you do to treat it?
Yesterday, June 23rd, was my birthday! I am officially 21 + 10 ; )
I could tell Dean really wanted to go out for brunch yesterday for my birthday. He was asking me where I wanted to go, hinting that Milk and Honey would be a really great place for breakfast. Instead I made him go for a run with me and told him we had to run as many miles as I am years old. Ha, right….. we maybe ran 20% of that. It felt good to run again, although the first couple of minutes were really rough for some reason. I was literally winded 20 seconds into our run!
The wedding was great, and when Bethany’s father was giving his speech, he had me stand up and announced it was my birthday, and then everyone sang me happy birthday. Super sweet : )
Hope everyone has been having a good summer so far! Again, sorry for being MIA. Not just form the blog, but to those who have written me and to several of my friends to whom I owe phone calls to. I miss you and just got really bogged down with everything going on.
Any exciting summer trips planned?
Dean and I are traveling to wedding in the Seattle area in the beginning of July. I am really excited, because the Pacific Northwest is the one area of the United States I have not been to and have always wanted to visit.
Most annoying/stubborn running injury?
