I woke up this morning to the sound of pouring rain and decided to throw in the towel on my 11 mile training run. Like I texted my running buddy, "Mama doesn't do rain!" To make matters worse, my left ankle has been killing me since I took Gus for a jog yesterday. I'm convinced I hurt it when I "almost died" running up the steps at work Thursday. I kicked the last step, hurt my big toe, and possibly rolled my ankle. I'd forgotten all about it until it started hurting yesterday.
Speaking of running, I convinced my darling husband to attend an event last night at JRC. I was surprised he agreed to go since things seemed to be strained between us yesterday (perhaps residual feelings from our failed NYE "kiss"). I kept expecting him to wander off or sit in the car (as he's done on more than a few occasions), but he stuck it out. He was, however, texting someone, but what else is new? Like I said yesterday, everything else is more important than where he is. :sigh:
On a more positive note, we had "the baby talk" this morning. I told him I had been entertaining the idea of conceiving by the end of the year, but also told him of my desire for a career change. Despite my argument that both can be done, he recommended I choose one or the other. The more practical idea would be to finish school first, but I'm more concerned about the possibility of a high-risk pregnancy due to my age. I already have a history of uterine fibroids and hypertension (which I pray will be under control before then); I really don't need anything else complicating matters. In the end, I need to decide what I want to do and do it quickly. "Tick, tick, tick. That's the sound of [my] life running out."
I'm usually not up this late, but since I slept most of the afternoon -- thanks to the rain -- I am wide awake. I should probably call it a night though, since I am opening tomorrow. Oh! I will also be taking my "Insanity" Fit Test tomorrow morning. Pray my ankle holds out. That is all.
