Random Bullets

29 Jun

Ok, my life is getting fuller and fuller, busier and busier.  Between Mama and Wife and Physical Therapist, sometimes there is just not enough of me to go around.  Blogger has certainly taken a hit, with no help from summer, which has thankfully taken me away from the computer and into the yard, blow-up pool, or lakeside.  So, here’s another cop-out blog with a bulleted list of some of the thoughts bouncing around in my much too busy brain.

  • I am over half-way to the half-marathon distance and starting to wonder why I want to do this?  I mean really–run for nearly 2 hours?  But then each week I complete a longer run and am sort of amazed by myself.  Dare I say I am become addicted to running?  And after a 7 mile run this past weekend, I think I am getting closer to actually calling myself a “runner” instead of “someone who runs”.
  • Carson woke up from his nap on Sunday and  has finally decided he would like to start babbling, and it cracks me up.  I only wish I knew what he was saying, because he has a lot to talk about!!
  • The Hubbs is home with The Boy this summer.  He has a hard time being a stay-at-home Dad.  And I am having a harder and harder time that it is not me.  I am not a jealous person…but boy, I am now!!  It’s especially hard knowing that it’s not his first choice and it is mine. 
  • Does anyone have any good blueberry recipes?  Our bushes are exploding over here and I would like to do something other than just eat them plain.  Thanks!
  • A long time ago, years even, I wrote a blog called “Chimp Attack”.  For some reason, every week this continues to be my most read blog.  Today alone it has had 12 hits.  I am not even going to link to this blog, because I don’t want you to read it!  Find it yourself if you want to!!  I don’t know who these people are that are reading it, but they are searching every variation of chimp: scream chimp, screaming animal, angry chimp, chimp attack, chimpanzee, blah, blah, blah…  I think I want to delete this blog because it is grossly skewing my numbers.  But in the same regard, if I delete this blog, I am afraid my number will plummet…what to do??
  • Yesterday was our 2 year anniversary.  So much has changed in such a little time.  I am finally at a point in my life where I am more or less content with all I have.  Would I like to be a SAHM?  You betcha.  Would I like a bigger house?  Yup.  Would I give up what I have for those things?  Absolutely not.  I am one lucky mama and wife.
  • Why is there such a stigma with a baby that doesn’t sleep through the night?  Why is that the first question people ask you?  Why do I feel like I am being judged because I still get up in the middle of the night?  Why do I feel like lying when people ask me that? 
  • Speaking of which…I need to get to bed!!  Here’s a new pic of The Boy for you…sporting his summer duds and looking super cute!!


Very Intellectual! Reading my favorite book with my cuz, Connor!

      you are definitely a runner! hooray!! 🙂

      and if it makes you feel any better, my baby doesn’t sleep thru the night AT ALL. In fact, he still wakes up every two hours like a darn newborn. I’m exhausted! But I’m used to it since the first two did the same thing. Apparently I birth vampires! 🙂

      can i bug you with a PT question? Are there any good exercise for a frozen shoulder? I’m falling apart! 😦

        UGH, frozen shoulder is literally one of my least favorite diagnoses to work with. The best things you can do are move, move MOVE!! It’s going to hurt no matter what you do and you need to minimize loss of range as much as possible. A couple of easy, quick & effective exercises: wall slides–slide your arm up the wall ahead of you (flexion) and to the side (abduction). Hold at the top for a stretch and repeat 10-20 times. You can also do a similar exercise by rolling an exercise ball up the wall with both arms and letting your bad shoulder stretch at the top. You can use a towel or belt or dog leash to pull your arm up your back (motion like you were going to fasten your bra) hold for 10 second for a stretch and repeat 10-20 times. You really want to avoid repetitive shoulder motions, especially overhead movements. If this is confusing, you can email me at mich_gal18@yahoo.com and I can figure out a way to send you pics of the ex’s. Basically anything you can do to move it and keep it moving. and definitely push through the pain for the stretch!! Keep me posted!
