Quick updates

The weekend is over and it is back to work.

Starting this week I am back to regular 8 hour days which is a welcomed change. I love getting into work early (7am) and leaving before 4pm.

I have a few updates from my last post:

Doctor's Appointment Friday went awesome. I LOVE my new doctor - she is so nice and considerate. She looked at my knee and gave me a referral to see an orthopedic surgeon as well as a physical therapist. So this Friday I have my appointments and hopefully will get some news on my knee.

Girls night was awesome with Kaylie! We did a little scrapbooking and I got inspired so Saturday I went home and got tons of pictures! My mom's birthday is in October so I want to make her a scrapbook!

Saturday morning I went to a local race to volunteer. I worked at the first water stop for the 12k race and it was awesome to see all the people out running. It really got me back into the running spirit and I really want to start running again! I honestly miss it so much!

Brian took me on the alphabet date Sunday - D is for Day at the Zoo. We went to the local zoo, which I haven't been to since I was little and saw the elephants, polar bears, penguins and much more! I have tons of pictures I will post later!

That's it for me really - a busy weekend and now a busy week at work! Happy Wednesday!

So glad you like your new doc! Hopefully the otho can help you get some answers and get you back on the road.

Volunteering is he best! I did that a lot when I couldn't run earlier this year. It helps keeps the spirit lifted!

I feel like it'd be hard to volunteer at a race even if you COULD be out there running - that was a big move! :) I hope the knee starts healing up with the new Doc on board!

Happy to hear that you are making headway with the new doctor!

By the way - if you're ever in California, let me know and we'll take a couple of extra days and see some of those mountains for yourself up close!
