Brief Update

Just stopping to say hi and to throw out a little update.
  • Wrists still hurt... better but still hurt and am now awaiting my worker's comp insurance to approve the physical therapy. Considering my case was opened at the end of January, this is getting ridiculous.
  • Working too much, trying to figure out how to find the balance.
  • Got a new tooth night guard because the stress is some how showing up in my mouth. Jaw clenching and pushing my tongue against my teeth and moving them. Who knew that clenching causes gum recession and flaking off enamel. Also causes wallet lightening because mouth guards are EXPENSIVE! This is my second in 2 years.
  • In the attempt to reduce stress and in celebration of getting home while it was still light out, we went for a jog yesterday and surprised myself at going 1.5 miles after no exercise for months. That may not sound like much but to me it totally is. I was able to pretty much chat with Eric the whole time. We even managed to sing this song for a short chunk of the route...

Wow, you rock! 1.5 miles after so much time off is GREAT. Good for you.

That sucks that your hands are still hurting so much. No, wrists. But pain sucks.

My teeth take a beating with stress, too. Grr. And yes, quite expensive the mouthguards are (my yoda voice)

I can barely run a block without having to stop! HA!

I love imagining you and E jogging along and singing together. :)

Miss you, Cherry!
