A Short One

Today's post is going to be a brief one as I am not completely sure of the internet access at the lodge we'll be staying at, nor of how busy I'll be. Right now I feel like I'm fighting off a cold and I'm completely exhausted feeling. I didn't sleep well at all for two reasons: 1) cold medicine and 2) Jason getting home after 11:30 pm.

He went out with the guys from the wedding party last night. Actually, I pretty much saw Jason all of 10 minutes yesterday. Anyway, I have a really hard time falling asleep without him being home. I also knew that when he got home, he'd wake/startle the dogs so I was semi-anticipating that. Plus, the medicine I took kept me awake as well. I probably didn't finally fall asleep until sometime around 1 am.

I am planning (key word) on trying to hit up Group Ride at my gym at noon. I do have to go by Whole Foods though to pick up a few things to take with me and to leave for my sis and the kids who will be watching the dogs for us. I also took more sinus medicine, so we'll see how excited I am about a workout when the time rolls around. There is supposedly a gym at the place where we are staying, so I can always get in cardio tomorrow if not today.

The wedding festivities are taking place at Mount Magazine. It's supposed to be a 2-hour drive, not too terrible. Oh, and everyone raves about how gorgeous it is there as well. I'm mostly packed, but Jason is not so who knows what time we'll actually pull out of the driveway this afternoon. I have no idea what time the rehearsal is this evening. I am fairly certain Jason doesn't know either ;-) I'm trying to not stress out about schedules and eats and all that jazz. Maybe I'll just curl up with some vino in my room if worse comes to worse - thought it'd taste like crap right now after the sinus medicine.

I will take pictures and hope to be able to post normally tomorrow. I'm sure I'll have plenty of down time as the wedding isn't until 5pm.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …

Jewelry and Overcoming the Fear of Failure

I guess I can blame this little hobby on Pinterest - jewelry making. More specifically, metal-stamped jewelry. Wasting time, skimming through Pinterest or seeing people posting pics of metal-stamped bracelets or necklaces, I thought, "hey, surely I can do that."

So I started pinning ideas, looking up how-to videos, ordering the tools. Boxes of tools, gadgets and goods started arriving on the daily. I know my husband was really excited. Yep, I was going to do this!

I felt like the child set free in a toy store. I didn't even know where to begin exactly. But I had some ideas. Lots and lots of ideas. I'm an idea girl as you'll soon learn. I set out my tools of the trade, all neat and tidy on my kitchen table ready to begin. Luckily, my husband who sits back and watches stepped in with some ideas on ways I could practice the stamping without using the more expensive washers and bars I'd so eagerly purchased. Smart man.

What I didn't take into consideration wa…
