I knew I was in for a painful day. I was prepared for my legs to me sore, my abs to hate me, etc. What I didn’t expect was my ankles would hurt. WTF did I do to my ankles? I think it is because I slipped on flip flops this morning for the long walk to the dog run. Had I put on my running shoes, I’m hoping the pain would not have been so intense.
Speaking of pain…my left arm is in serious trouble. I knew yesterday that my left arm was giving me more trouble with the weights than my right. I had to really push to get it extended. Well, I pushed too hard. Pretty sure I pulled something because it is killing me this morning.
This isn’t going to stop me. I just won’t do any arm work today. I need to let my arm heal before I do something serious to it. I can still get my treadmill time and some ab work. I’m thinking today I will make use of the hydro massage. That thing is amaze balls and my sore body could use some pampering. I’m hoping with the promise of a nice massage after, I can get in a really intense work out in without my body totally screaming at me.
On another topic, school starts in just a few weeks. I need to take the kids out this weekend to get school clothes. Emily has outgrown EVERYTHING and needs a whole new wardrobe. This is crazy since she really hasn’t ever outgrown things in less than a year. I always laughed that I saved a ton of money on her because she wore the same size for almost three years. Oh well, watching her grow is worth the price of new clothes. My baby is growing up.
Caleb will only wear tan pants. Do you know how difficult it is to find different shades of tan? This is going to be fun. He asked me when he was getting his new shoes. The way that child burns through shoes, I will be getting those literally the day before school so that they are still in good condition when he starts.
Whitney and Collin have their first house. She is moving in today. He is back out of town working hard for his family, so she will be setting up the house with the help of her dad and his family. She is so excited. It is a three bedroom, two bath, with a fenced backyard for the kids. It is exactly what they needed. I wish I were there to help her get it just so, but it just isn’t in the cards right now. Soon though…very soon. Little Miss Marlee is already a week old. She is so stinking cute and looks just like Paisley.
Life is settling into place for her and I am beyond proud of all she has accomplished. Three gorgeous kids, a man that adores her and their three adorable kids, working on getting her college degree, and now their first home. She is just the most amazing woman I know and I am proud to be her mom.
Okay, time to face this day. Who hid the pain meds?
