U-G-H

Well, lovely friends...what can I say. I am in a total funk. Remember my little trip to the emergency room last week? I have apparently hopped on a one way flight to Migraineville without a return ticket.

Sunday night? Huge migraine = bed at 9pm. Monday night? Huge migraine = bed at 9pm. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I haven't talked to my husband since last Thursday. Yesterday, I tried to make an appointment with the neurologist that was recommended to me by the ER person - but I was told that their office needed to call the ER to get my ER records, and then they'd have to see when they could fit me in, and then they would call me back. No call back yet, of course, and I managed to offend the receptionist by calling the doctor "he" when the doctor is actually a "she." Her first name is Jamie. Who's to know??!!! It is a gender ambiguous name!

Other than that...today is my fabulous coworker (and only friend in Bloomington) Becky's birthday! Happy birthday, Becky!

And in other news...after several rescheduling issues, I am finally meeting my Little Sister today after work! We were supposed to meet last week on two different days, but had to reschedule a few different times. I am thrilled that the day is finally here! I am actually a little bit nervous...what should I do/say today? Any suggestions?

Also...Mr. Smith and I have picked our 5k! We will be running the Coach Hep Cancer Challenge on May 16th. I'm so excited to have a goal date for our first race! I ran a hard 2 miles outdoors yesterday in the rain...my first outdoor run without Mr. Smith to help with pacing. It took about 4-5 minutes to find my rhythm, but then I settled in and ran hard. I finished my two miles in 19:34...my fastest time yet! And yes, I know this is still pretty slow. But for me, it was fast!

I have made some pretty serious running goals for myself....but I'm going to save that post for another day. Happy Tuesday!

I am so jealous that you've gotten out to run recently! Our first race will take place at the Bix in Davenport, IA in July, so I know I've got plenty of time to get up to speed.... :-) We'll see how that goes. In other news, I am so excited that you are a Big Sister, I actually work for Big Brothers Big Sisters, so it is so great when I see people getting involved in this awesome program!!

Congratulations on the running! That's amazing! Any tips on how to get my fiance to take up running with me and how to keep it up through the inclement weather?

I hope your migranes get better, I get them too but not to that extent!

Cristina said...

I would have made the same mistake...Jamie, Pat, Lesley, Stacey - how are we to know the gender?? lol...

Do you take anything for your migraines? I get them some, and I have to take medicine and it really works!

Actually, 19:34 is not slow. Don't sell yourself short! I can't wait for May 16th now! Your first 5K will be so fun!

I wonder what the deal is with the migraines coming back full force. I hope it stops. :(
