That is what I was yesterday for my run. I recorded my fastest pace to date! Woohoo!!

Enjoyed a lovely walk with the pup. He was so happy to be out there. So cute!

Spent some time visiting with my girlfriend who just had toe surgery. That was fun. I brought her a latte. She enjoyed it.

I had a million ideas to blog about, but now that I'm sitting here.... nothing!

I'm trying a new recipe that Andrea blogged about. Chicken PandemoniYUM from Eat, Shrink and be Merry. I can't wait. It sounds so tasty!!

I had physio yesterday for my shoulder and have stretching exercises to do 4 times a day. My rotator cuff is not torn. Thank goodness. I go again on Thursday. Next week, after I've had a week of stretches, I start weight lifting again. Woo hoo... sort of!! Hahaha!! Physio chick said just not to do exercises that hurt. Duh!!

So, husband told his parents that we will be going to Ottawa for Christmas this year. In the 20 years I've been with him, this will be the first Christmas we've missed with his family. MIL pouted the whole night after he broke the news, and only spoke to say that hopefully they won't be DEAD next year, and that since we won't be here at Christmas, we will likely never see them again. Oy vey!! Keep in mind that this past Christmas, they were in for 1.5 weeks, and only saw us when they came over for dinner Christmas day (4 hours). They were supposed to come for Christmas breakfast, which they have done every year my daughter can remember, but cancelled the night before because they didn't want to drive the 20 minutes over. Daughter was so hurt. My mom & her husband are also coming to Ottawa and this will be the first time my sister will have her family at her house for Christmas. I can't wait. I'm feeling very guilty about husband's parents - but husband is so mad at his mom's reaction.... I suggested that maybe we should drive out for Thanksgiving but he won't have any of it. Sigh.

Daughter thinks this is all hilarious because on our end, I'm the one trying to get husband to call and see his parents, but she knows on their end, they think this is all my doing! She actually laughed OUT LOUD!

Well, I guess that's about all I have for now. Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. I have to BEG Mr. P to call his parents and they hate me because they think I am why they don't see him...makes me crazy, but I would rather them blame me than know their son wants nothing to do with them...

  2. Yay for your fastest run to date.

    As for the in-laws - I'm baffled at the way some people react to things. You'd think they would be more understanding and lay off the guilt trips. Some people are very selfish. I don't know your in-laws so I'm not trying to point fingers....I'm just calling it like I see it.

  3. I can't believe your MIL is such a pill. Get a grip lady!

    Nice job on running faster!

  4. Oy veh on the family shite. Take care of that shoulder. I have some rubber surgical tubing I use to do rotator cuff exercises. It has been a miracle.
