But so far so good with husband being gone. And my elbow and tooth are feeling GREAT! Before my root canal appointment on Tuesday afternoon, I stopped into my doctor's office and had a quick xray of my elbow done, just to make sure I hadn't pulled anything major. It was to the point where my elbow hurt so bad I couldn't even pick up S with my right arm. Anyway as I figured it was, I have what's known as "Tennis Elbow." A very annoying inflammation of the tendon that attaches to your elbow. Most common in tennis players, hense the name. Anyway since my elbow had gotten so bad, he gave me a cortizone shot right in my elbow. It hurt but I would have done anything at that point to get this pain to stop, so I sucked it up. Other than that, he gave me some exercises I can do to strengthen that area, but not much more I can do. So let's hope between the shot and these exercises I can start lifting weights and doing pushups again. Need my Jennifer Aniston arms for the summer!
Then after that lovely appointment, I headed off to my root canal. What a FUN afternoon for me right??? Cortisone shot in my elbow AND a root canal... ahhhh, it's a glamorous life people, try not to be too jealous, k?
My mouth is still sore today, but it's slowly getting better. And I'm able to finally chew on my right side again, which let me tell you, is Heaven after not having been able to for a couple of weeks now.
Yesterday was a fun "mommy" day. We made it to playgroup in the morning and I got to catch up with some friends I hadn't seen in a while. During the kids naps I literally ran around like a crazy woman, because I had so much to do. Dishes, laundry, garbage duty, etc. Our neighborhood's annual garage sale is this weekend and even though we have SO much baby stuff to get rid of, there was just no way to do a garage sale by myself with 2 kids. But since my neighbor rocks, she said I could put some items in her driveway and she'd take care of it for me. So I dragged my stroller, exersaucer, carseat and base, swing and jumperoo thingy, 4 houses down to her house. I was literally dripping with sweat by the time I got done. But am SO happy to have that out of my house. Hopefully I get a some good prices for it.
Also, S's teacher at school is pregnant and her boyfriend left her. Sad story and she's such a sweet girl. So I went in my basement and pulled together 3 boxes of baby clothes, toys, etc. for her. I can't even imagine being in that situation, so I'm glad I could not only help her but clear out more of our old baby stuff.
Then after the kids were up I took them to this new playhouse they just built in Grand Rapids, called Jester's Court. HOLY CRAP this place is awesome! If you live around here, I highly suggest you check it out. It's basically like a bounce house and Java Gym/Jungle type place, all combined into one. I got a great LivingSocial 2 for 1 deal too. We had soooo much fun. And yet again, sweated my butt off from all the climbing and jumping. So while I didn't get a traditional workout in, let me tell you, I did some major calorie burning yesterday.
So anyway, even with all my crazy doctor's appointments and so many pokes from needles, I can't even count, it's been going very well so far with husband gone,
Eating is also going well. I love when I'm crazy busy like this because I seriously don't even have time to eat, much less over eat.
