Random Thoughts

Okay, so I haven't had a whole lot I've wanted to post about but seeing as it's been awhile, I thought I'd ramble for a bit....
I'm kind of in a funk right now. My arm is hurting, I see the Doc today, find out if something's wrong (again!), or I'll get the okay to start up some more PT. I'm a little nervous, not too excited, but I'm getting frustrated and wanting to get back to my workout routine and just plain normalcy! My arm just isn't right and I hate doing everything one-handed! Plus, since I haven't been working out lately, I thought it'd be a good time to eat everything in sight! Uggghh! Now I've recently started watching my intake(meaning this is day 2) and trying to do what I can at the gym, but honestly! if only I could be a little more consistent!

Okay, on to better things....Spencer & Carter. Spencer's great and wonderful. He's been going out of his way to do nice things for me, and help me before I even ask. He is an amazing kid. And he's quite the runner. They've been having a Junior Jogger competition between classes at school and every Wed. they run laps around the field behind the playground, and Spencer just runs and runs! Parents could come help out and earn extra laps for their child's class, so I went and ran with Spencer. He could keep up the entire time, 30 min. and even carry on a conversation! (with all his friends, not me, I was extremely out of breath) The kid has some wind. All the other kids just sprint and stop and sprint and stop- trying to not get passed by any of their friends, but in the end can't hold on...Spencer just keeps going and going. His last Junior Jogger day, both Rob and I came to help ensure that his class would win 1st place, and Spence could even keep up with Rob! I think we may have a little track star on our hands. Of course that's only if football doesn't work out.

Carter is super-excited for his upcoming birthday. He tells everyone when it is and then asks when is your birthday? His little voice is super sweet and always makes me smile. His latest wonderful is that he said to me, "Mommy, you're my best fwiend." Oh, I loved that! And I think that he's told everyone else they're his best friend too, even the cat, but I was his first...so I'm holding on to that.

I'm hoping this little funk of mine doesn't last too long. Maybe it's the weather, I would really appreciate a little sunshine and warmth. Tired of the overcast thing.
Send some rays my way!

We're sorry about your arm, too. Let us know ASAP what you find out from the doctor. I understand a little about broken arms but nothing like you do. Weather has a lot to do with the aches & pains of a once broken limb especially when there are pins & plates holding everything together. If it has healed adequately the doctor might take out some of that stuff. Keep us posted & we will definately be keeping you in our prayers. We love you so very much & hurt when you hurt.

Give Spencer & Carter lots of hugs & kisses from us. We miss them. Can't believe that Carter is talking so much & Spencer is quite the little athlete & yes he would be someone for me to be on a deserted island with.

Tell Rob Hi.

Love, Mom & Dad

Jennica,
I am sorry about your arm and will keep my fingers crossed that the doctor can give you some good news. On the off chance that you need some help...all you have to do is ask.
As for your funk...it'll pass. I know-I have lots of them. (And I DO think that the weather has something to do with it sometimes so I'll pray for some sun!). Love you, miss you and wish you were closer!
