Knee Dr!

I finally saw the doctor today about my knee.  This guy was recommended to us by my favorite running inspiration, my nutritionist friend :)  They know her by name and two different people told us she has "frequent flier miles"  Lol!  Anyway, back to my knee.  It looks like I sprained it during my 4 mile barefoot run on the beach.  Since I'm feeling a lot better, he said I can try to run a 1/4 mile and then come home and ice it.  If I don't have any pain, two days later I can try 1/2 a mile.  Two days after that, 3/4.  If I make it up to a mile, I'm good to go.  If I have any pain, I need to call him back and set up an MRI, but he seemed pretty confident that I wouldn't need that.  Hooray!!!  I cannot wait to get out there and start running again.  I'm planning to build up slower now.  I was adding a mile a week, but now I'll just add half a mile a week.  I realize that it will take twice as long to get my dog, but hopefully I wont have any more injuries!  Hubby got his knee looked at too.  He's going back tomorrow to start PT for his IT problems.  Maybe we can be one of those crazy couples who runs together after all ;)

I have friends coming on Friday.  I can't wait to see them!  But I really need to get this house in order!  I also need to figure out something for dinner.  J has to work late since he went in late due to our appointments, so it's just me and the boys.  I don't like cooking when I'm on my own.  I'm hoping to post pictures of my newly painted guest room and kitchen soon.  Stay tuned for those (next week?)

Updates, Updates

I'll do this as a bullet point, since it's been soooo long :)

* I found out recently I'm definitely allergic to wheat.  It's something I've known, but it's nice to have the proof.  Also found out I'm possibly allergic to corn, which might be the reason for my chronic hives, which I still have.  Lame, I know.
* We are all set to start homeschooling T this fall.  SOOOO excited!!!  He's excited, too. 
* L is talking up a storm and it is the cutest thing!  He has a sweet little voice and I love to hear him.  Everything is about food, usually.  Go figure.  He's my little piggy.
* T has started soccer and loves it.  He's really good, too.  He's moving up to the intermediate class for his age group.  We might sign L up.  We are going to a free trial class this week to see how he does.
* OBX was AMAZING, as always.  I can't wait to go back in August after my sister's wedding.
*J is enjoying his new job.
* I made it up to running 4 miles, and did it at a 12 minute per mile pace, which is what I need to get my dog when I run the 10 miles.  I felt great on that run!  I did it on the beach.  Bad idea!  I did it barefoot.  SUPER BAD IDEA!!!  I busted my knee and haven't been able to run since.  It's been three weeks and it still hurts if I have it bent for too long.  PLEASE PRAY that nothing serious is going on.  I see a specialist this week.
* J painted my kitchen blue.  I love it.
* The rest of my house is beyond out of control.  We have spent this past weekend rearranging things and organizing.  We have company coming so I'm working hard to get everything in it's place before then.

Ok, that's it for now.  I'll leave you with a picture :-D
