Where to start - it has been too long since my last post but it hasn't been for want of trying or wanting to post - I just haven't managed to get my act together and get it done.
This evening I have spent the last couple of hours catching up on blog posts and twitter and a quick squiz on FB and feel that, while I haven't read every post on blogs I follow, I am generally all caught after utilising my super power of speed reading !!!!
Since my last post re my menopausal musings, I have had one day (Wednesday) off sick with a headache that saw me stay in bed all day and sleep about 22 hrs of the 24 hrs on that given day !! Whether it was menopausal related or not I don't know, I just know that I don't like it when it happens. I used to suffer really badly with similar headaches when I was on the pill but it has been a while since I have felt so debilitated with it.
I have also been to see the dr (Thursday) who sent me for a blood test and put me on some anti-depressant tablets which have been successful in hormone balancing tests. Honestly, I don't care what they are called, I just want them to work. Unfortunately, they take 2-4 weeks before you see any results so, keep hiding family, probably better for all of us !!!
On Monday night I went for a run - my first since the race. It was a reasonable run - I was glad I didn't go further than the 5.38km that I did do. I don't know if it is just psychology, but I kept worrying about my knees giving in and getting damaged. So, I have taken the lazy option and decided that I won't run until I get the orthotics which should arrive next week.
On Saturday night A and I went to see Ted while waited for K's plane from Melbourne to arrive. A very stupid but at times very funny movie. A didn't like the drug scenes in it and felt that the story wouldn't have been very different if they had of left those scenes out. I said I wasn't sure that it would influence someone to take drugs just because they had seen a cartoon character doing drugs with Mark Warlberg !!
This is what I am talking about - have just realised that I can't even post a blog in sequential days of the week order !!!! Sorry - blaming my mushy brain for this !
This afternoon I was going downstairs to the loo and decided that it would be quicker if I didn't actually walk down the last three stairs but rather slide down them, try to right myself before I went through the glass door at the bottom of the stairs and then use my head and my shoulder to stop myself up against the wall to the warehouse - really just try to add some fun to a Friday afternoon at the office (Don't you all do that or is it just me who tries to make it exciting at work ????). Consequently, my knee and shoulder are aching and I have a nice headache with a red sort of burn mark on my forehead. My knee is also swollen with a carpet burn on it - soooooooooooooooo I am now sitting here with my feet up and an ice pack on it. Will this hinder my running when I get my orthotics - IT BETTER BLOODY NOT !!!!!!
A is working away from home. I was supposed to drive up and meet him in Noosa after work tonight and then go through to Eumundi markets tomorrow but given the cr*ppy weather I have decided to stay at home and maybe go into the office tomorrow to try to get on top of things before the start of next week. It is less than 4 weeks until we leave for NZ and I have so much I want to get done before I leave. Then, Carmen from musingnmayhem is coming down to a roller derby (I hope I have called it the right thing !!!) and we are hoping to meet - if I don't get too self conscious and shy and not manage to get there !!!!
On Sunday we have a barefoot bowls afternoon with A's work (Don't understand why they would organise a family day once they have decided to close the division down - rather give him the money thank you very much !!!) - hopefully my knee will be fine by then otherwise I think I will have to take a book with me. I don't find bowls that much fun to play and I think watching it is about as exciting as watching paint dry !!!!
I am linking in with bbeingcool for her last Team Friday linky. B, I am very sorry that you won't be hosting this linky anymore but I will still be around reading !!! Looking forward to linking up with Stacey-Lee from next week.
So, from a rather befuddled brain - wishing you the best weekend ever ! For those on the Gold Coast, stay as dry as you can and maybe we should all buys shares in whichever company sells wellingtons - if this rain doesn't stop soon I am going to have to seriously think about moving !!!!!
