Three Things Thursday

1) My dayhome woes seem to have resolved themselves (for now).  I was having a whole lot of stress about the whole thing and very nearly took a year off work to just solve them once and for all...but then we managed to work out a good arrangement for transporting the girls to school.   Here's hoping it works.  I wish I could feel more confident long term.

2) This weekend was supposed to mark marathon #3 for me as I am registered for Banff Marathon.  I'm still really sad that I can't run it.  Hell - that I couldn't even train for it!  Today, I had my first appointment at Elite Sport Performance to deal with my poor fractured leg.

The appointment was interesting.  We assessed where I'm at.  I need to go for a bone scan (which somehow I lucked out and got an appt for tomorrow!) and blood work.  We talked about my weight in relation to the shoes I run in (ie - that the shoes are perhaps a bit light for what I need) and then talked about a treatment plan which would include Graston, strength training and, possibly, a bone stimulator (though amputation and boingy feet may come in much cheaper and heal faster than this fracture is).  I go back again next week to really work out the plan.

On an up note - I am starting to formulate a plan to start running again after I am finally cleared.  There is a lady (or two) in my office who would like to learn so I may do a little Learn to Run/C25K thing as a group.   Guess we'll see.

3) I'm officially obsessed with Little Free Libraries.  I visited the one in Kingsland this morning.  So cute - made from an old console TV.


I have the strangest hankering to build one for my front lawn.   I don't know why.  I am just so inspired every time I see one in Calgary and then I think about my own little town that doesn't have a library of any sort (outside of the schools).  I think it'd be a fun addition here.  I just have to figure out a design...and how to encourage people to use it.  Perhaps, as the old adage goes, "If you build it, they will come"

Have you ever had an injury drag on and on?  How did you deal with it?

Have you ever noticed things resolving themselves just as you come to a decision on how to handle them?

Have you ever been to a Little Free Library?
