A Peek in our Week


I have been doing a little  Early Spring Cleaning. I worked on a few rooms down in our basement ( a repairman was coming so that kind of gave me the nudge I needed to clean things up a bit), I worked on redecorating my bathroom, cleaning up and re-organizing my dressing room, and re-decorating my living room. You may have recalled in December that I painted the living room, well, now that marathon training is over I've been concentrating on decorating, hanging drapes, buying furnishings, etc. -M

Every night this week I have become in the habit of icing my knees before bed and then taking 2 IBuprofen right before I fall asleep. I can't say I feel great by any means but my legs are not cramping up in the middle of the night anymore. And when I say cramping up, I am using that term loosely as it really feels like there is a knot in my leg and that my leg literally locks up to where I can not move it.-M

On a brighter note I got a new icepack yesterday and it is FABULOUS! Who knew one could get so excited over an ice pack? -M

I've stopped riding my exercise bike for a while. I would ride in the evening and then my legs would hurt worse at night time. I'm going to give it a rest until I go see my Ortho and see what he has to say about it. -M

Speaking of Ortho, I've called everyday this week to see if someone had cancelled. We got some snow this week so I thought perhaps there was a little old lady out there  somewhere that wouldn't be able to make it to her appointment. Turns out, no one cancels because of a little snow.  We are suppose to get more snow tonight and into tomorrow so perhaps someone might cancel then. Fingers crossed! -M

I have SO much work to do this week that it is starting to stress me out. I'm doing work for this new magazine called "How To".  My articles are How to choose a Lawyer, How to choose the right insurance agent, and How to pick a hearing aid, all things I know nothing about. On top of that I have my articles for my regular magazine that I write for and my Fashion column is due in a few days and I don't even have a topic picked out! Ugg!.  Perhaps I should spend less time cleaning and decorating! -M

After having some leg pain, the highlight of my week was finally getting a massage! That is all. -L

What was the highlight of your week?
