Well hello there! It sure feels like it’s been awhile…but it’s only been two days. Actually I feel like I have no idea what day it is or even what month it is. That’s probably because it still feels like winter outside.
Next week it will be April…no more freezing rain or snow or any kind of cold is allowed!
But really? What us UP with this weather? 70 degrees and then a low of 25? Winter is really trying to hang on tight I suppose.
Anyway, let’s catch up. On Monday we closed on our house! We are officially homeowners! It doesn’t feel much different, especially since after we signed everything we dropped off a few things and then came back to our little, tiny, apartment in the city where we will continue to live for a few more weeks. I don’t think it will feel like we really have a house until we are moved in and living there.
To celebrate, we went to our favorite restaurant, Flemings, on Monday night. No wonder I have no idea what day it is- indulging in steaks and wine and THIS DESSERT on a Monday? Neither of us felt like going to work the next day.
Totally unrelated, I tried painting my own nails last weekend for the first time in years. They actually looked pretty decent….for about 24 hours until they started chipping. I only have 2 colors- I chose this one because it seemed appropriate for a dreary and cold week of spring. Like “I want to be sunny and warm but I am fighting it and I am going to be gloomy and chilly instead”. Do nail polish colors talk to anyone else like that?
Ok but the truth is that once the weather gets nice I am going to REALLY get the itch to run. It’s easier to turn down a run when its sub-30 degrees, but on those days when we saw a glimpse of spring it was tough seeing all the runners come out of hibernation. Not that most of us hibernate, but we know there are plenty that do.
I am probably long overdue for a PT update, but there’s not much to say. Except that not running doesn’t help. So last night my PT put me on the Alter-G for a couple miles. I am meeting with a different PT (in the same clinic) next week who has more of a background in this stuff to see if he has any other ideas as to what is going on.
And that’s just about all I have for today! Hopefully I can find some time over the next few days to catch up on blogs and reply to comments because I am way behind. I wish I could say it was because I was out doing fun things, but no…I really don’t know where the time has gone that I used to spend blogging. Gotta get back to a regular routine!
Does it still feel like winter near you?
Do you paint your own nails?
What time of day do you usually blog?
