Yes. I like that decision

I am SO off-plan this week. I haven't tracked a thing since last ? Wednesday maybe?

Been thinking of you all and will properly introduce myself to all of our newbies. I will also make a real point of not waiting so long in between visits. Lots going on here to fill you all in on.

First - I do have a trip report started for my vacation. I needed to go through the pictures so that I can do it right. Almost done with that so I can post the first day or two.

Second - work update. After a great deal of I can't believe you people are making this big a deal out of this, I am being transferred to a new project! It is all very exciting and a little scary since I will be moving three hours west of where I have been for the vast majority of my life. The project is a great one and the career opportunities are amazing but leaving the capitol is going to be hard as I have been there for the better part of 8 years now. Of course, they want me there in about two weeks so there is lots to do. Of course, my being alone in a new town gives me more time to hang out here. heh-heh....

So that about sums things up for me. I need to pick some pictures for day one and will be back with the start of the trip report.

Lisa - sending you and Frankie hugs. Nancy, you get them too for Becca.

For everyone who is healing, please listen to your bodies and let them heal. I am battling both PF (ouch) and some minor arthritis in my back (double ouch) at the moment. It just plain sucks but all I can do is wait it out and let it heal.

You and me both Nancy. Just ate Ben and Jerry's PB Cup ice cream. Where is the whacking yourself upside the head icon?

Congrats on the new project! Back in November, I had three weeks to finish my project at work in MA, pack what I could of my house into my tiny Ford Escape, and move to Florida with my dog. I arrived in town at 10pm on a Friday night and started my new assignment at 9am on Monday. It is nice to have tons of time without social obligation in the evenings, but not knowing anyone outside of my boyfriend and a few coworkers has made for a bit of a rough transition for me. I hope yours goes smoothly.

Just gandering a guess here, but are you headed to out to the Syracuse area? Or are you going kind of north/west? I did my undergrad up at SLU, so that part of the state used to be pretty familiar to me. Although in the 10 years since graduating, the closest I've come to the area is Lake Placid.

Paula, what exciting news! Two weeks! Ack! Get packin!

My PF is annoying the &$#* out of me, especially b/c it's bothering me enough that really all I can do is sit around. I'm not an idle person, so it's depressing me a bit, especially with post trip blahs and weather blahs going on as well. Only direction at this point is up, so that's a plus!

Paula - what a great opportunity! Congratulations, but understand the scary part. I haven't started over in a LONG time. I'm anxious to see and hear about your cruise. We are hoping to go somewhere warm soon.

Our somewhere warm will likely be Puerto Rico. DGF wants to snorkel. I want to zipline. We both want to get away.

I get to get away first. The planning for WDW spring break trip next month is going strong. Just realized the Cardinals are playing the Braves at WWoS that week. We'd love to do that, but it's the beginning of the trip. The kids would be more interested in sitting on the hillside Thursday or Friday. Monday, NO WAY!

I ran for one minute this morning. Walking feels fine. A as soon as I began to run there was pain. I'm not training for anything (damn you Chicago) so there's no need to push it. My other don't push it is I don't want to be the weak link at Disney or on vacation with DGF. A pokey Aunt Ronda would damage my rep!

Give it a few days and try again. Sigh.

Ronda

Ronda, have you thought of Belize? A friend of mine just got back and was talking about an awesome zip line and cave tubing day trip she took. They apparently went through a rainforest at different stops, it sounded really neat.

I think we may actually be in Disney around the same time-- my dad is in Orlando for a conference, so DBF and I are heading up for the long weekend. We are thinking about going to the game on Saturday vs. Toronto over the game on Monday since the Cardinals spring training facility is literally throwing distance from where I work, so we figure we'll change things up a bit. If Uggla (the DBF's man crush) is out of the lineup, we'll likely be at every game between Saturday and Monday, trying to see him.

Ronda, sorry you couldn't run. Puerto Rico sounds nice! ANYTHING with sun and warmth sounds nice now, but spring will be here soon enough, time seems to be flying by this winter!

Hhhheeeelllllooooo ladies!!! How is everybody doing on this beautiful Wednesday night? Beautiful as in 73 degrees, I'm FINALLY off call tomorrow and can get back to running and yoga again...yay!!! Hit the elliptical a bunch of times over the past week but it's just not the same

Anyone ever deal with a hip problem? For some bizarro reason, I haven't been able to sit cross-legged since before Thanksgiving and have limited range of motion in my left hip. My chiro has been able to get a little mobility back, but even she said it was time for the orthopedic. It doesn't bother me a bit to run, thank goodness, but it's pretty comical to watch me in yoga class.

(Disney alert: watching Lion King for only the millionth time!)

Anyone going to be visiting the holy Mickey land on Mother's Day weekend???

Promise by next post, I'll have everyone's names down. Well, maybe...

oh yeah. Hip issues right here. I dealt with what I thought was a hip flexor issue for, oh, maybe close to a year? I finally went to the orthopedic just before Christmas and an x-ray confirmed that I have arthritis in my left hip I will never cure it, but I can manage it. I now take glucosamine daily, been thru tons of PT and spend at least 15 minutes a day doing some very targeted stretching.

I'm usually one for working thru *discomfort*. But- it is so worth it to figure out what the root of the problem is so that you know how best to attack it and make it better.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. It will certainly be an adventure.

Lisa - you were closest on the location. Southern tier, base of the Finger Lakes and not far from Ithaca. I will be in Corning!

Someone needs to tell me why I am eating as if it is my job.... sigh. I so want to stop this bad trend.

Ronda - take care of you

Hip pain is not fun. Nancy is the expert on this one so I will defer.

Off to bed for me.

Ain't that the truth. I suppose it's OK for me now since it's not as taxing, but I don't always feel like I get in a good workout. I'm trying to get my body into the swing of my training schedule (short distances T, W, Th, weight training F, light cardio Sat, long run Sun, rest M), and not over-doing it on an elliptical is hard. But man, do I wish I could run as fast as I roll on an elliptical!

Hi!

Ronda, THANK you for the tutorial - I totally understood that. I have to pay attention to where my blister forms and troubleshoot the reason - I have tape just in case!

Vacation anywhere is awesome. I was in Belize for a day and I loved it.

I am busy at work, trying to do errands, clean house, and pack! Leaving Sat Am. Em still doesn't know!

I am reading but not commenting a lot. But I am here!
