1. Let's start with this -- Merry Christmas!!
Sweet Birdies' Nest created my cards and I *loved* them. Loved them! Thanks so much ladies. They also did the boys' birthday cards this year and they were precious:)
2. I don't think I ever shared the fact that the MRI of my knee showed no tears. (If I did, oops, I'm senile and I'm sharing it again.) What it did show was some reeeaaaally roughed up cartilage. My knee cap tracks incorrectly and has wreaked havoc on the cartilage. My doctor has chosen a conservative method of treatment (surgery likely isn't going to be necessary!) and is letting pain be our guide. I have a cool new brace to run in that keeps my kneecap where it should be and I'm working with PT to strengthen all surrounding muscles to lessen the load my knees carry. I am running 3 or so days a week (which is about to get amped up after the new year), 2 three to five milers and long runs on the weekends (6-8). I'm carefully increasing my mileage this time.
2. I tweaked some things in the boys' rooms and I love the changes. One thing: I found that I got what I paid for regarding fabrics. $3.50 per yard fabric, not so great. However, $20 per yard fabric from Lewis & Sheron Textiles, pretty fabulous, very worth it. LS is at the bottom. Great place to find fabric!
3. I tried a green drink from Whole Foods, in part to look cool and in part because I am a stickler for veggies daily. This one had kale, celery, apples, and some other stuff that I forgot. I found it weird to drink celery but I didn't hate it. I just wish they sold smaller cups. Better portion size needed and I'll be a fan.
Laughed until it hurt and ate chocolate cake! What could be better?
P.S. My hubs bought me this cute dress from Anthro for my b-day, would you believe this is my first dress from there?! Woohoo!
