Random Friday Fluff Post

Last night my dad and I went to dinner together at the new IHOP that just opened in town. For some reason, pancakes sounded like just the thing I needed to care a little less about this cold I've developed.

It. Was. DELICIOUS. Seriously, I didn't have high expecations because, well, it's IHOP. Everything inside was so sparkly and new and nicer than any IHOP I've ever been in. Our server was super nice and attentive. As soon as I sucked down a glass of sweet tear (also delicious) she had a new one for me. I ordered some pancakes from their special: Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake Pancakes. Bacon. Eggs. Hashbrowns (that I couldn't finish after all of the above and passed off to dad).

I'm sure I won't appreciate this combination of pancakes and spending the vast majority of my days off my feet, but whatever... there will be time for shaping back up after I ditch the crutches. For now, I am choosing to believe that pancakes will make me heal faster.

I've been having a LOT of dreams lately, and they're usually pretty strange. I normally don't remember so many of my dreams. Most of the time they're about pretty regular things and people in my life. But lately? STRANGE. I'm wondering if it has something to do with all the cold medicine... or maybe when I'm less active physically, my brain starts dreaming up odd things?

Regardless, it's beena real struggle to get out of bed. I am sure a small part of it is because deep down I still feel pretty depressed about the injury... and confused as to why and how it happened, something that I can really only make guesses about right now until I can see about some tests to try to figure out if my bones aren't as strong as they should be... But I think the biggest reason has been this cold and the antihistamines. They just make me so groggy!

I'm really glad it's the weekend. I have something to go to each night, but I plan on sleeping in both days and taking it easy during the morning/afternoons. I need to get a few presents wrapped and write a few cards to go with them.

I hope everyone has a good weekend. I probably won't post again until Monday, but who knows? I have a surprise once I get some pictures this weekend so maybe I'll have a chance to get it on here.

So funny - I just posted a random blog including notes about customer service and dreams! And yes, you should email Amazon about the shipping saga. Maybe you'll get something free or discounted out of it - like I did by emailing Which Wich! Have a great weekend!

Hi- I'm new to your blog (found you through Frayed Laces). I just wanted to say that I feel your pain- literally. I also have a pelvic stress fracture. I did the damage on December 14th while running 13 miles. So you are not alone- I am going through this at the same time as you. I have been reading your posts and your feelings and thoughts mirror my own. I am going CRAZY not running and being so inactive. I try to be upbeat and optimistic (not only for myself, but for the benefit of those who have to put up with me!), but it really is difficult at times. My biggest fear is that I will never be able to run again. Maybe I will "heal" only to run for a short period of time and crash & burn once again. Do you ever feel this way?

Anyhow, as miserable as we both are, I find great comfort reading your posts. I had two half's and a full marathon scheduled for early spring that I obviously won't be running. Thanks for sharing your feelings/experience- it is nice to not feel so all alone.

Heal quickly- I will continue to follow you through your progress :-)
