Today was one of those days when I just could NOT wake up. My girls left around 9am to go snowboarding up in New York, and I got up to help them get out the door. Then I crawled back into bed with my sweetie, snuggled up on his shoulder, and fell back to sleep until noon. Woke up long enough to look at the clock, roll over, and fall back to sleep until after 1:00!
But I think I really needed it. I'm feeling very mellow and happy today, and the fact that it's already 2pm isn't throwing my into a tizzy. Other than getting laundry done, I think it's going to be a very lazy day of just playing on the computer and watching movies. I kind of need that.

Just completed a 5k as a family. of the 700+ people who signed up, less than 200 actually participated because it was all of 26 degrees. And DH, Younger Daughter and I were the only walkers in the crowd. (Older Daughter ran, then came back around and walked the last mile with us.) We were slow. We were, in fact, dead last. But we were lapping everyone who stayed in bed instead of showing up!

Took my girls out for sushi last night, which is one of my favorite foods in the whole world. But as we were driving back home, my throat began to feel sore and tight and the inside of my mouth to burn, and I realized that something in the sushi we ate was cross-contaminated with shrimp or lobster.
I can eat any seafood or shellfish except shrimp and lobster, but those two definitely cause me problems. Fortunately, I recognized it right away and we were almost home. I took 4 Benadryl, and then an hour later two more, and an hour after that one more. I was a little loopy, but it managed the symptoms, and today I'm fine.
Still, from now on when I order sushi I will definitely mention the allergy issue and make sure the chefs don't cross-contaminate!

I am currently writing this from high atop my treadmill, using the TrekDesk treadmill desk that hubby ordered and I finally got put together. So far I've been walking for 45 minutes while working and Sparking. The idea isn't that it replaces a workout, but that it gets us away from hours of sedentary office work.
I'm liking it, and will be trading off with hubby so we can both get a chance to use it. I'm about to start one of my contract projects, which require a lot of time at the computer, and this will make that time feel much more productive.

I have managed to put on 15 pounds in about 5 days--quite shocking, but I know that it's water weight from eating too many salty things in my frustration at getting injured. I've already dropped 6 of those pounds, so I'm not panicking.
For the last two days I have gone to the gym and gotten on the elliptical for 50 minutes. This seems to be helping with the tailbone. My theory is, that particular area doesn't usually get much in the line of blood flow, so it's really slow in healing bruised tissue. But the elliptical moves it more that other activities, and without a lot of jarring impact. So even though it can't speed up healing the bone fracture much, it can help to heal the contused flesh. So I think it's helping.
