J is still out of town as of this moment. He flies on the red eye back tonight/tomorrow morning and is planning on going into work tomorrow as well (because he is crazy?) So I will see him tomorrow evening. I am looking forward to it a lot. I am managing to get along pretty well on my own this week. It helps that I have not really put a lot of pressure on myself to cook meals and stuff. I am eating leftovers and easy thing (kraft mac and cheese with added spinach, french toast, etc). I have had someone at work help me with my hair if a ponytail is necessary (I can brush it lefthanded, but you need two hands to ponytail!), I have been wearing only sports bras (no clasps!), and I managed to get the garbage bag on and taped over my bandages/splints to shower on my own! I know I easily could get help or shower at work (as suggested by coworkers), but I like feeling independent!
I was playing candy crush in mt bed yesterday (instead of cleaning like I had planned to, whoops!), and looked down when I heard a whine. I was greeted with this site:
I am REALLY missing running, but maybe that will help fuel my fire for training after the baby comes. Taking a break with be a good refresher after running nonstop for 2 years, right? But I did get out for 45 minutes to walk yesterday, and I was able to go more quickly than on Monday. Just slower than 15min/miles!
And now for something cute.
