Day 177: Crutches and Working Out

I never realized how many things L helped with until he was on crutches.  Seriously, I’m not responsible for all things trash/recycling, late night pup outings, and cleaning. I think I’m counting down the days that he’s off crutches almost more than he is. At least he really doesn’t feel too much pain, so that’s a bonus (for him at least).

So today at work a couple co-workers and I decided to have a November challenge. We have to go to the gym twenty days during the month of November. It’s a good kick in the butt for me – I’ve definitely been slacking lately. And when I say lately, I mean for the past few months. So help me out, what classes actually get you out of bed in the morning??

I went back and forth on what color cardigan to match with this outfit. I finally settled on this bright pink – nothing says “nobody puts Baby in the corner” better than neons.

Day 156: Broken L

Last night when I came home from dinner, L told me that he’d hurt himself playing soccer. I figured he just tweaked something and that he’d be fine today. Apparently he heard a ‘pop’ – which is never a good thing. Thank goodness my best friend from college who got her DPT is coming down this weekend for my birthday. It’s always good to know a doctor!

Anyways today I needed to sneak out of work a little early to help take care of L – which meant I was so busy tonight with work stuff. Plus there was some cleaning and prepping for T to get in this week. I’m SO excited!

Anyone ever had ACL surgery and have any advice?

Day 114: L’s Birthday!

Today is L’s birthday, so we went to bartaco for margaritas and tacos, with some amazing friends! I’m actually a bit of a cougar – L is almost two years younger than me.

LB and I were the first to arrive and totally did the annoying, “Can we sit here? No, we want to move to this table.” I waitressed in and after college, so I completely hate people like that. I remember my worst night serving. The mothers of some girls I went to high school came in and proceeded to pretend they didn’t recognize me. At the end of the night, one of the women mentioned that her daughter went to college so she didn’t have to wait tables. I couldn’t even believe it.

Anyways, happy birthday to L!

Day 114

Since I knew we were going out tonight, I wanted to dress cute! This dress is from a little boutique in Marblehead, Massachusetts – I absolutely love it.

So does anyone else have a job that you’re totally happy you’ve moved on from?
