Pulled muscles and no cavities

Henry's asleep, @hank3 is doing his fantasy football draft, and I'm about to start Pretty Little Liars season 3. It's a wild life, I know.

Hello Wednesday night! Veronica just texted me about our Friday group playdate thinking it was tomorrow morning, and it took me a good moment to realize that we were both wrong and tomorrow is only Thursday. Ahh! It's so weird how I never know what day it is during the week. Usually I have specific markers- grocery shopping on Monday, library on Tuesday, but this week we've been a little off schedule due to some random things going  on. One of them being last night at CrossFit I pulled my hamstring sprinting. Totally my fault. Even before the whistle was blown to begin I said to myself that I should have spent more time warming up, and lo and behold on my second step I felt that uncomfortable shock in my right leg. For a moment I was panicked and thought I tore my ACL again but then I realized I had just tweaked my muscle. I rolled it out, then iced it, and this morning I woke up and it was feeling a lot better thank the lord. I was expecting it to feel worse so I'm grateful it's not as bad as I thought. I'm still laying low, but definitely no more sprinting for this old lady!

Then this morning I had a dentist appointment so Henry went over to Allison and the twins' house to play. I can't say enough how wonderful it is to have a group of mama friends here, and how awesome it is to be able to count on each other to watch each others' little ones. I didn't have that at all during the first 6 months or so of Henry's life and at times I felt really sad and isolated with most of my close friends living down in the Phoenix area. So it makes me even more thankful to have found such a great group. Also I should add that I had NO CAVITIES! Yeah! I had my first and only cavity right after I had Henry and I am always nervous I'll get one whenever I go. After my horrible wisdom teeth experience (my lower lip is STILL numb believe it or not), I have a bit of a dental work phobia but this morning helped to alleviate that a little bit.

And speaking of teeth, Henry's tooth is obviously still chipped. Luckily it didn't change color so we are still thinking there was no nerve damage. I'm on the fence about getting it capped. It's not too sharp that it bothers him, but I do feel like it would be safer to have it fixed in case he fell again. But then on the other hand it is a baby tooth so maybe we should leave it alone if we'd be fixing it for cosmetic reasons? I got a referral for a new kid's dentist today so we'll probably check him out in the next couple of weeks and see what he says.

Other than that all is well in my little world. Keeping busy and feeling good. I have two more episodes left of Pretty Little Liars and I'm kind of freaking out thinking about what is going to happen. Hank is out having coffee with friends right now and I might spend the rest of my night staying up too late and finishing up the season. And then guess what? You don't have to hear me talk about it anymore...or at least until I fall in love with a new ABC Family drama. Quality programming, let me tell you!

Alright, I am off. I hope your Thursday is wonderful! xo

p.s. I've been enjoying writing these random posts- they remind me of the old Livejournal days and why I fell in love with blogging in the first place. Yay for more of the everyday stuff, right?

  1. Big yay for the every day stuff--you are an excellent writer, and it's pretty enjoyable to hear the real deal stuff (but then again I LOVED lj, so this kind of stuff is totally my MO).

    Big ups for the great group of mom friends. That takes a lot of sifting through just okays to find the good ones, and it's not easy at all. I'm finally realizing after 2.5 years of us living in Portland that we do have a small yet solid support network of friends. It's the good stuff.

    And I would totally rather be into an ABC family drama instead of FACE/OFF like my husband and I are watching right now.

  3. OMG I was obsessed with PLL in July...I watched them all in less than a week on Netflix. When it was over I actually felt really sad...and lame. ;) I have actually cheated and watched a new episode on ABC Family's website. I have to say I think the first three seasons are the best. Have you watched Secret Life of an American Teenager? That was the first series I obsessed over on Netflix when I was pregnant with my daughter. My husband would come home and say, 'Oh geez, high school AGAIN!' ;) Netflix is seriously amazing.

    Weren't you watching Parenthood at some point? Last week I saw that they added another season!! I watched it in two days!! Sooooo good!

    Also loving your every day stuff posts!

  6. Speaking of ABC dramas. After you talking about make it or break it.... its all I have watched. I was so sad with the Emily ending that I actually lost sleep. *addicted*.. I am almost at the end of season 3 now. I will miss it. But I still miss Emily I really fell for her character and her story. I might try Pretty little liars next.

  8. Livejournal! I still have an account, though I rarely update it anymore. I used to check in on it every single day, which is hard to do now, but it's nice that I have a record of my life dating back to when I graduated high school. Oh, the posts that I have made. Some of them are truly embarrassing, some of lovely, some are silly. All of them are me.

    What's really great about the site is that it has connected me with some of my closest friends. I'll always be grateful for that.

  10. Ouch! Hope you feel better soon. And PS- you're not old!

  11. I HATE when I get injured while exercising. Hope you feel better soon. Personally, I'd leave the tooth alone unless it is bothering him. It will fall out before you know it.

  12. I love everyday blog posts for the same reason! Sometimes I miss the old days of Livejournal.

    I hope you feel better soon! I'd wait and see what the dentist says about Henry's tooth and go from there.

    Have a wonderful Thursday!

  14. I'm normally not a fan of anonymous comments but I am a little embarrassed about this one... you should check out Glee! I have always kind of scoffed at it thinking it was probably silly but it's filled with good singing and dancing and LOTS of drama.

  15. This is possibly a totally pathetic question, but what the hell...you said that for the first 6 months of your sons life you didn't really have the friendship and support from other moms. So, my question is how did you find that?? My family moved one year ago and I have 3 children and it's been hard to meet other moms I connect with. I'd love love love to have a group of mom friends.

  16. I, for one, love this post!

    So glad to read that you're feeling better.

  17. ah, yes. I had a live journal in 1999-2008, so I completely understand how this would be a bit like that. I had a nasty cavity when I was pregnant and waited until after I had my sons before I got it removed (it was in a wisdom tooth. . .so I got mine taken out just a few years ago now). Glad to hear that there is no issue of a cavity this time for you!!! That is weird that you still feel a numbing pain!

  18. Loving the random posts. They remind me of "back in the day" when I read your blog ;) And yes -- livejournal days. There was one other... Open Diary, I think? The good ol' days!

  19. I love random posts, too!
    Just curious.. You say you don't believe in Jesus but you said 'thank the lord' . I know it's become a 'saying' but I think you SHOULD believe in Him!:)
    After the birth of your son weren't you in awe of the miracle ??

  20. Feel better soon!

    I know what you mean about shows. My current fave is Hart of Dixie and I have been wiling away way too many hours by watching it! It's just so addictive... Haha.

    PS, love your pants in the photo - they're so happy looking (yay, flowers!).

  24. Hunter chipped his front tooth about a year before his first birthday. I cried for like 2 hours because his sweet little smile was a jagged mess and then called the emergency pediatric dental line. The dentist wanted to just round the edges because a cap would require a root canal and sedation. We opted for a filling, which was pretty tramatic for him (all 2 minutes of it) and it looked really good. However, a little over one month later, he fell again and the filling popped off. We decided that we didnt want to put him through the terror of a dental proceedure again (not to mention the $300 bill) so we had it filed down. His smile isnt perfect any more, but its just a baby tooth. It was really emotional for me, but now 4 months later I think we made the right choice. And, just for reference, he chipped about 40% of his tooth off...it wasnt a small chip. You can see how it looks now on my FB if you want. :)
