Where the heck did Emily come from?

This weekend I walked 5 miles on Saturday but unfortunately even walking is causing me a little pain.  It’s migrated too.  What started in my upper hamstring has relocated.

I made an appointment with the sports doctor for Thursday morning so we’ll see what he says.  I’ve been running long enough to know that the problem is most likely stemming from my back issue and the fact that I sit on my ass all day working.  I mean, I have the medicine ball and foam rollers and all the gadgets I need but my posture just sucks and honestly, it’s much more comfortable to work from the comfort of my lazy boy.

Except that I’m paying for it in the long run.

Too dumb

Anyway, after walking on Saturday MacGyver and I went to a few garage sales.  We got a few good things.  MacGyver got a really cool cover from a 64 Mercury outboard motor.  I want to make it into a mailbox but we’re still deciding.

On Sunday it started raining.  We’re still waiting for it to stop.  MacGyver and I went for a 6 mile bike ride anyway because we’re not afraid of a little rain.  We also went to Aldi and I think it’s really important to tell you that Aldi now carries IPA beer!

I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll let you know when I do.

I was also at Aldi on Friday night when my niece was having her gender reveal party.  They live streamed it so I was able to watch on Facebook.  I might have gotten a little too excited when I saw the pink exhaust from the truck because I screamed out, ‘it’s a girl, I knew it!’  Everyone around me and up to four aisles over clapped.

When I was pregnant we didn’t have these gender reveal parties.  In fact everyone I knew told me not to find out what the sex was until I delivered because that’s what gets you through labor, especially if you have a totally natural childbirth, and I did.  (I know, I’m a badass.)  I also had to return a lot of things so there’s that.

But I digress, the point is, these gender reveal parties are all kinds of fun and who knew you could turn the exhaust from the truck pink or blue.  Amazing.  The best part was that my niece had no idea of the gender either, only her sister who organized the party so it was really sweet.

I was thinking of buying this for the expecting mom but it might be too much.

I was planning on a really easy walk this morning and since it rained all day yesterday I checked the weather radar late last night and it looked like there might be a break in the rain early this morning.  I laid out all of my clothes so everything would be ready and then when I woke up this morning I turned on the news.

Somehow, over night a low pressure system turned into this!

Yeah, so there’s that.

How was your weekend?  Did you do anything exciting?

  1. Have you considered making your treadmill into a walking desk? Fortunately my job isn’t completely desk bound. I get up and walk around the operation a bit.

    I like the onesie!

    • I have thought about that but I’m so damn clumsy I would probably break a leg. Most definitely, I would. My latest thing is setting the alarm every hour and getting up to stretch. Thankfully I have to feed Larry every hour so he’s currently the ‘alarm’. 😉
