Today was an especially busy day.  The kids and I went to church to volunteer for a bit.  Then, we headed to the J.  I have had a kink in my shoulder and a headache everyday this week.  I’m not sure if it is a lack of sleep or water, stress, or something else.  Today, I treated myself to a 15 minute chair massage.  It felt great.  I didn’t get a headache today, but I still have the kink.  I also managed to do 15 minutes on the elliptical.  We got to the J later than normal, so I didn’t have time for much more.  On my way to the showers, I ran into friends.  We chatted and showering didn’t happen while I was there.  The Kid Kare was really busy and short handed.  The kids still had a great time.

After lunch, I needed to go to the store.  So, I decided to ride my bike.  The store is only 2 miles away, but round trip, that’s 4 miles and 20 minutes of extra activity.  The only problem is that my knee hurts again.  I don’t think I twisted wrong or anything that I recall, but it’s been really sore all afternoon.  I was planning to spin in the morning (1/2 class), but now I think I’ll be doing PT exercises instead.  I don’t have time for too much more rehab.  It’s summer time and there is too much to enjoy!

Right before dinner, the neighbors started getting a new lawn.  Someone in the family has a landscaping business so I suppose that Sunday afternoon is one of the only “downtimes” for them.

Nick and Sally were glued to the window taking it all in.  It was the best entertainment ever.  A bob cat and a dump truck were both involved and we didn’t have to leave the house.  We can’t wait to see them put the lawn in.


I spent the rest of the day cooking and cleaning.  I’ve been trying quite a few new recipes out.  I’ll be doing more recipe posts soon.  I feel like we can eat yummy leftovers for the next few meals.

Next up: more knee rehab at the J.
