Fun For Friday - You Know You're REALLY Sick When

What a week ... I'm finally feeling semi-human again after being taken down by some sort of plague funk. I honestly don't think it was the flu as I felt something start to come on slowly mid-week last week. However, I did run a pretty high fever for 2 1/2 days. I became one with the couch and my warmest, fuzziest blanket.

I know all my posts this week have been about being sick and not working out when sick. But that's kind of all I've had to roll with this week. I promise this is the last of the sickies posts. It is Fun for Friday so let's do a funny post about being sick shall we?

You know you're really sick when ...

  • You quite literally blow through every box of tissues (and several rolls of toilet paper) in the house.
  • You have to resort to Vaseline around your upper lip, nose and cheeks from blowing your nose so much.
  • Your significant other starts drinking Airborne or Emergen-C like it's a life force.
  • You have carefully positioned every pillow to fully support your neck, head and back so that you can easily see the tv and doze simultaneously. 
  • You have memorized the daytime tv schedules on your favorite channels.
  • The dogs begin to think you are in fact part of the couch. 
  • You gladly resort to any weird concoction in hopes that it will cure what ails you. Nothing sounds ridiculous. I can't begin to explain how much apple cider vinegar I consumed. 
  • You have completely forgotten what it feels like to sleep lying flat. If it's nearing my chest, I have to sleep partially upright.
  • You also have forgotten what it feels like to feel normal, so that when you can actually peel yourself away from the couch you assume you're all better when in fact you're only about 50%.
  • You actually willingly wear your glasses all day because you keep falling asleep and falling asleep in contacts is never ideal (for me at least). I quickly realized exactly how old my glasses were.
  • You get excited when you finally feel hungry enough to eat.  
  • You sleep more hours than you are awake.
  • You actually are ok with going to the doctor. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Apparently I wasn't desperate enough, but I definitely contemplated the idea. 

Those are just some of my "you know you're really sick when" items. How do you know when you're really sick?

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…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












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. …
