Good morning, internet friends! I'm mobile blogging from the waiting room at the neurologist...exciting! Okay, not really.
I will be out of the office all day today, working a business expo for the Chamber of Commerce. Blah. The expo has a theme - "homecoming" - so we all had to dress up. I do not like dressing up. We are all dressed like "cheerleaders" i- and there are quotes around that because the uniform is black warmup pants and a white polo, and it's been awhile since I've seen a cheerleader dress like that. Okay, never.
Anyway! Yesterday afternoon I hung out with my Little Sister, S. As the hours wore on, I had the striking realization that I was hanging out with the 12 year old ME. It was weird! But anyway...we first went to my apartment to pick up Oscar, and we took him to the park for a nice walk. Then we headed to the mall to "window shop," one of her favorite pasttimes.
We went to Aeropostale (awkward aside #1: they had some super cute summer dresses. Please don't tell anyone I just said that), Claire's (awkward aside #2: they had some super cute feather headbands. Please don't tell anyone I said that), the pet store (we held three different puppies) and Old Navy (which was fabulous as always). Then I took her home and couldn't believe that three hours had already passed!
That's when I got the most fabulous text message informing me that my friend Cassie had her baby yesterday afternoon!!! I had spoken to Cassie on Monday, and she was feeling crappy and just so, so ready to have that baby! Her due date wasn't until the 28th, so I'm thrilled that she had little Charles yesterday! Yayayay!
When I got home, Mr. Smith and I went for a run. Not good. I believe I have hurt myself...? Can any of you tell me what a shin splint feels like? I had to stop after 1.5 miles because I was in so much pain. My right leg hurts, in the middle of my calf/shin area on the inside, if that makes sense. When I stopped running, the pain only intensified and I could barely walk back to the apartment! I iced the area stat and it started to feel better. This morning, that leg still hurts all around my ankle when I put weight on it. What is the deal??! Somebody help, please.
Well, that's all for today - I won't be at a computer today so I'll miss reading all your lovely posts - and will be catching up tomorrow.
Happy Almost Friday!!!
