I think the God's are trying to tell me something...

Well after running on Monday and all the crazy tightness I felt in my rear... Tuesday night my right knee started to swell up with fluid. This happened to me twice, right after I had S. My knee swelled up to the size of a grapefruit. I literally could not fit my jeans over my knee. Anyway, I had it drained and once I got over that initial post-pregnancy weirdness, I haven't had an issue with it. That is until Tuesday night.

I can only assume it's from running, but I can't be for sure. Either way, I'm getting frickin' old!  Luckily I still had my anti-inflammatory pills from the last time, so I was able to keep my knee from getting super huge. But it's still enough that I can't straighten it or bend it all the way. Good times... Here's a photo of my knee when it swelled up right after I had S.

But I'm going to prevail and I'm headed to Atlanta today for my fun girls weekend with A and my sister... even if I have to hobble the whole way there! I'm at work until 4pm and then I'm off to the airport to catch my 6pm flight. I am VERY excited and can't wait to get there.

I'm going to miss my little ones though. As much as I bitch and moan talk about being home alone with them all the time without a break, I'm rarely away from them. Especially not for 4 days. Though the thought of sleeping past 7am is an appealing one.

Things are still good with the new nanny, Ms. K. When I got home on Tuesday, my entire house was picked up and ALL the dishes were done. Why didn't I think of this nanny thing earlier?

Have a great weekend y'all! (the "ya'all" part was because I'm headed to the South today)

Just Call Me Mrs. Frankenstein

Well I certainly paid the price for running yesterday. I could barely walk by the end of the day, my butt muscles were so sore and tight (sorry TMI).  I was walking around like Frankenstein for most of the day. I would say my pinched nerve is definitely not healed yet and I'm highly annoyed.It's not like I ran 5 miles, my God! I'm feeling ok this morning though. It's hard to tell if I'm sore from running or 30 Day Shred. Either way, it's a good sore this morning, not the painful kind I was in last night.

Our first day with the nanny seemed to go well. She was only there a short while, since husband's flight got changed to much later. So I think she went home at 1pm. But today she's there all day, so hopefully things will continue to go smoothly. S was still sleeping when I left the house, so I hope she doesn't freak out when she wakes up and Ms. K comes into her room. Hopefully since she was there yesterday, she won't be too afraid.

I leave for Atlanta on Thursday to go visit A for the weekend. I'm getting really excited. My sister just stopped nursing her baby so I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of drinking done. The bad part about this trip is that I don't have a suitcase. Husband hijacked mine and now I need to borrow one from someone. We do have more than one suitcase, but the other one we have is MASSIVE. And I am not lugging that thing for a weekend trip. And my white noise machine broke. I am one of those people who cannot sleep without white noise or a fan noise in the background. My travel noisemaker broke, so I have no idea how I'm supposed to sleep now. I keep forgetting to email A and see if she has one.

So I have a bunch of baby stuff I want to get rid of on CraigsList. I've never actually sold anything on there before. I know I need to put down an email address but should I make up a new one just for CraigsList stuff? I don't want to get a bunch of spam sent to me? Anyone know this? Any other tips?

Holy Soreness!

So our new nanny starts today! I'm not gonna lie, I'm a bit nervous. I'm not sure why, since Ms. K has taken care of J for the past 8 months at daycare. But I guess it's different when someone is in your own home. I'm worried she's not going to be able to find something she needs, I'm worried my kids will be total spaz's because they are excited, I'm worried worried worried about little, silly stuff. I made up a hand book of sorts for her, which does have a lot of info in it. But there's just SO much when it comes to your children, it would have been 80 pages long if I put every last thing into it.

Plus it didn't help that last night husband came up to me and asked me to give him anything of great value (jewelry, etc.) to put in our safe "just in case."  Well cool, thanks for that husband, now I'm even MORE nervous... ha ha.

But I'm so happy I am trying this. I got a facebook message from another mother who's child was in J's classroom. She told me that they took S's teacher out of her room and put her into another room. So if we had stayed, S would have also had to get used to a new teacher. And the teacher they put in S's room is this old, crabby lady, who in my opinion, has no business working in a daycare. AND on Saturday, I saw another mom of a child in J's class who also quit daycare last week, for the same reasons I did. So this was a needed move... I just need to keep telling myself that throughout the day today.

The good thing is that husband has water training this morning (in case, God forbid, his plane should ever go down in water, he can survive) and then he's back home for a short while and then off again to fly at 5pm. So he'll be able to "check-in" around lunch time to see how everything is going.

I've been super good on the workouts. I did 30 Day Shred last Friday and yesterday. Holy Soreness!! I also got up at 6am today and ran. I'm trying to slowly get back into running after this whole pinched nerve in my rear issue. It's still there, but according to the doctor, it's just going to have to work itself out. So I speed walked a mile, ran about a 1-1/4 mile and then speed walked another 1/2 mile to cool down. The pinched nerve didn't really hurt much, I felt it, but I wouldn't say it was super painful. It was a HARD 1-1/4 mile run though. How sad last March I was training for a 10K and now I can barely run 2 miles. But I just don't to injure myself more. So I'm going to slowly ease back into it, only running once a week. But I'm glad I did it. I love that it's light so early in the summer, so I can get outside and exercise. It's so much better than working out in my basement.

Ok, work to be done!
