I am (not) old....

It is amazing how one little thing can make you feel old.  Allow me to explain, if you will.

I have said before that I have been a little loose as far as my eating habits are concerned.  I was determined to not waste my summer away, but to get back into some kind of exercising routine.  I also totally regretted not running the Komen Race this year so I wanted to start training again.  I got up early on Saturday morning and went for a run/walk for 45 minutes.  I was so proud of myself for doing that and I felt really good the rest of the day.  I knew I would take Sunday off and was determined to get up on Monday and get myself into a routine.

Monday morning I woke up at 5:15.  I made myself get out of bed and got ready to go out.  I did one full lap around my development as a warm-up and then started my run.  I was doing really well and was on the home stretch when, out of nowhere, I got a horrible pain right below my shoulder blades in the middle of my back.  I am not lying when I tell you that it literally took my breath away.  I made it home, took miss raven out, and then collapsed on the floor, face down.  I stayed that way for an hour because it hurt to move.  Now you know, when I put off coffee for THAT long in the morning, something is W.R.O.N.G.  (I can see my BFF at her law firm in Ohio nodding in agreement.)

Long story short, I am at home for a second day, nursing a back injury.  I'm not sure exactly what I did to it but it is extrememly annoying and is making me feel very old.

I am also REALLY annoyed at the USPS.  I went to the post office a week before I moved to change my address.  I had started getting mail at my new place but now, all of the sudden, the change of address has somehow been cancelled.  My mail is still going to the OLD house.  Now I have to go back to the post office and re-do everything I had done before.  And they wonder why noone likes them there.

I love me some Ikea!  Wanna see my miss raven's new chair?
I LOVE this chair!!!!  Sometimes, like now, I am even allowed to sit in it.  :)

The spare room is FINISHED!  Yea me!!!
I still need a lawn mower.  I am not showing you pictures of the jungle yard because, frankly, I am too embarassed.  It is THAT bad. :(

Finally, here is another picture of my girlie.  Just because I love her. ;)
