Believe it or not, that geektastic moment was NOT the most eventful thing that has happened since I last blogged--this time last week my beautiful new niece was born! I know everybody says this about their own family, but this baby is seriously gorgeous. I am beyond thrilled about her and so happy for Older Brother and Sis in Law. Unfortunately, they live in Florida so I won't be able to meet Beautiful Niece until Spring break... :( It can't come a moment too soon!
Other than that news, my life has been pretty darn uneventful these days. My Sunday 7-miler was foiled because I had the *brilliant* idea to attempt to run through 5+ inches of snow on an unplowed bike path...I made it ONE mile away from my car, thought I was going to pass out from exerting so much energy WADING through snow and fighting wind, and barely made it the mile back to my car. Fail. Also, later that day I managed to have an epic wipe out on an icy sidewalk, smack my knee on the pavement, and seriously jack up my knee. It's still hurting and just not working right! After a friend's 2 cents and some web MDing (obv), I convinced myself that I had torn my miniscus...which I still think might have happened, but it's feeling a little better every day so hopefully whatever it is is healing on its own! Anyways, the long and short of it all is that this has become a spontaneous "Rest Week"--and it's given me an excuse to rock my Tommie Copper knee sleeve 24/7... #attemptingtoseethegood...
Continuing with the random theme of this post, let me just share the beautiful piece of writing I had the pleasure of reading this week...it darn near brought me to tears. Grab the kleenex. Prompt: Write about a place that is special to you.
