hey. whoa. where'd i go?

Hey, guys! It's been a while.

I've been keeping myself busy so as to not dwell on the limited exercise of interest thing (this eliminates swimming from the discussion, so don't suggest it...got it?).

I know you all are curious about how the injection is playing out and probably all the awesome things I've been up to since I clearly have NOT been blogging.

Bullets...here you go:

  • PRP Injection? Two thumbs way UP. For two days after, I babied the heck out of my hip, then I started bearing more weight and being more active. A bit of pain...it comes and goes when I walk, especially when I have to carry a child. But the most amazing thing to ME is this:
  • I saw Life of Pi in 3D. Triple snap in Z formation. Go see it. About two-thirds of the way through the movie I started crying for a reason completely unrelated to the movie (which did make me cry in its own right). I was crying because I realized that for the first time in ten years, I was not uncomfortable AT ALL while watching a movie. TEN YEARS, people, of pain in movies. It was a mind-blowing experience to NOT have that. I'm calling Injection #1 a success. I get #2 in three weeks. I can't wait :)
  • A couple of weeks ago I offered to help someone out. I don't know her that well, but our daughters are best friends. I'm watching her daughter before school for 90 minutes for the next three weeks. The child is super polite and sweet and EASY. And makes our mornings easy...which is hard. She came over every morning this week. Today the mom paid me! Whoa. I wasn't expecting that! Woo hooo! Now I have money to:
  • Mail out the Jingle Bell Hell prizes! I had NO IDEA how expensive shipping had gotten :( But they ARE coming, people. Hope to get them out by the end of next week. So Christmas in March not February ;-) I may need to go buy Jennifer some more powdered donuts, though. Not sure how rich in preservatives these guys are!
  • We enjoyed a lovely day and went on a lovely walk...
Except for this one. She ran...

...and kept running...

...until she found this tree, upon which she stopped and pointed
and loudly proclaimed,
MOM!!! THIS TREE HAS A PENIS!

I do believe that the entire horde of tourists visiting Muir Woods on that beautiful Sunday morning then noticed that, indeed, the tree had a penis. 

She looked up and saw this...
and delightedly shrieked,
(I say 'delighted' because she's my child)

These trees are SO BIG! They're THIS BIG!
and she jumped to show me how big.
That's why the picture is blurry.

This one got mad.
I don't remember why, 
but I remember that he worked it for a good, long time.

Then we let him take our picture.

He was so excited that he tried to grab his own face.

It was beautiful.
And kind of loud because we were there.
  • We followed up with lunch at In N Out, which I think was the kids' favorite part of the experience. Even though I made them all share a shake. 
Hope all of you out there have a lovely weekend!

Anyone doing something fun?
– we have soccer and birthday parties and piano tests and housework to look forward to :)

  1. Oh my gosh I love that mad picture. Lol. I used to
    Love getting those. So not fun at the time, but so funny to look back on.

    So glad you're seeing such good effects from the PRP injection! What a wonderful feeling.

    Your area is just beautiful.

    ...and whatever my last remark was going to be... My brain doesn't hold into things at 3:42 a.m I guess. Oh well, back to sleep. Have a great weekend!

  2. WOW! Amazed, and so happy that the PRP is working so well. Make me really feel like I should at least start thinking about getting my back looked at. I haven't been able to sit through a whole movie in the theater without pain since I was 14. That's half my life.
    Your kids are such a bright spot of joy in the world. And, I'm pretty sure either my brother or I would have yelled the same thing about that tree. My brother once pointed to a scraggly biker when we were in the butcher's and proclaimed, "Mom, look, a hillbilly! When's he going to pee on the floor?"

  3. Glad to hear the PRP is working. Fingers crossed the pain goes away completely. Your daughter is so cute! Only a child would notice the trees "appendage" - ha-ha! Love your last photo, it is a winner.

  4. I'm so glad to hear the PRP is working so well. Makes me wonder if I shouldn't have had that shot in my back after all--it hurts first thing in the morning getting out of bed every day, so that I've just accepted that for the way it is. It would be amazing to leap agilely out with no pain. I can relate to your movie experience.

    BEAUTIFUL trees, even the one with the penis!

  8. I popped over to see how the hip was doing and so happy to hear it has a thumb's up; you've been in my thoughts!!

    I'd love to get up and see those big 'ol trees, especially the ones with the penis, please!

    Your kiddos always make me laugh :). I guess they didn't have school today? And major score on the new 'job' - yay, money! :)

  12. That is awsome that the injection seems to be working...I hope the second one makes you feel even better. You asked about our weekends....I did this hike before the weekend since the weekend was devoted to home improvement, and the hike was definitely more fun! Should be my most recent post!

  39. I understand that those are the products designed by manufacturers to make them money and
    if they are endorsed by winning popular professionals, sales will
    be high. All spaceship game leveling systems are designed slightly differently, but
    there are some general concepts that apply to all games in this genre.
    For the purposes of this game, a "set" is at least three cards of
    equal value such as three Jacks or three fours and a "sequence" is made up of at
    least four cards that are of the same suit and run sequentially such as three, four,
    five, and six of spades.

    However, every character in the game (even supporting players) should be presented in
    this same detail. Preparing to apply to the dozens
    of other game development companies for video game jobs will enable you to expand and diversify your list of possible
    employers, and your chances of getting hired will increase tremendously.
