1. This whole shutdown thing is killing me. I'm glad the gym is open again, but I still haven't returned to work because my position is paid from an area that hasn't been cleared yet to resume spending money. Which means I'm still jobless. I talked to my supervisor today about it (I think he was afraid I'd be mad), and while it stinks, it could always be worse, so I'm trying to stay positive about things.
2. On a happier note, I LOVE MY BICYCLE! 2 rides so far, and it is awesome. I love it. I want to ride tomorrow, but given that I kind of over-did things already yesterday, I probably need at least one rest day before Saturday's half marathon.
3. I've been cross-stitching my heart out as I try to stay calm/de-stress during this shutdown business. Unfortunately, that means I actually irritated my shoulder! Crafting is dangerous, folks.
Anything random to share? Races this weekend, silly ways you've gotten hurt?
On a completely unrelated note: If you're the praying kind, please keep a newborn baby in your prayers. My friend's cousin gave birth to a baby boy yesterday, but he has a heart problem that will be requiring surgery as soon as possible, and then he'll face 3 more surgeries in his first year before going on to require a heart transplant. I don't ask for prayers ever, but this newborn baby could use all the help he can get. His name is Bennett. Thanks.
