After I tweaked my ankle again on my run Thursday morning, I iced and had breakfast in bed. My ankle is pretty sore, just from being rolled on Sunday during my race and then getting twisted again on Thursday. I am trying to do everything I can to get it back strong and healthy. It’s already feeling better! I just know I still need to be careful and baby it.
As I was driving to school yesterday, something caught my eye, glistening in the sunshine. Is this a gray hair?! I think it is. And if it is, it is my first gray hair. I made it 31 years without finding one. I have really dark brown hair, so this definitely stuck out. I’m embracing it. It just means I’m super wise, right? I put it next to my car emblem for comparison…definitely gray…
My Mom’s text wins everything. I don’t know what was on the line, but she knocked it out of the park. This made me laugh so hard.
The second I got to school, I grabbed an ice pack from our nurse and iced and elevated my foot. I couldn’t have my ankle on top of the ice pack because it was pretty sore, so this is how I made it work. I used my other foot to prop up the ice and hold it on to my ankle. It worked pretty well.
I had a crazy busy computer day, and honestly, I don’t remember half of what I worked on. Ever have days like that? I did get a lot of things finished, so that felt good. I used my lunch to make two tacos and it was the best decision. I was kind of sick of just eating the chicken over spinach.
After school, I did a bunch of work on my blog, and I cannot wait to share the new space with you. I think it will be ready by Monday! You should still be able to access everything like normal, but I didn’t want to officially switch everything over until the weekend. Fingers crossed it works
Our friend.s, Katie and Layne, had us over for dinner last night. Layne killed an antelope in Wyoming on a hunting trip, so he grilled an antelope tenderloin wrapped in bacon. Holy cow (holy antelope? – ha ha), it was incredible. Also, how adorable is their table? We had such a blast with them and decided we need to make it dinners like this happen more often.
I need to spend some time in an eighth grade classroom today, finish up some computer stuff, and work on some data organization, so it’ll be another busy day. I would 100% rather be crazy busy than bored. After school today, I am heading over to my Grandma’s house for a couple of hours. Then tonight, Jake and I are planning on a date night at home that will consist of stir-fry and a movie. I cannot wait to relax with him.
I have been majorly slacking on my lifting workouts this week, so I need to knock out a workout when I get home. I was letting me body heal up after Dogwood, so now that it’s feeling better, I’m ready to get back into my lifting routine!
We don’t have any major plans this weekend, which I am excited about. Like I mentioned yesterday, we will be out at sac River on Sunday for Thorn-A-Thon. Come on out and join if you are free! It is seriously a good time. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
Happy Friday, friends!
