And I Don't Even Play Tennis....
Over the last few weeks I've been having a little pain in my right forearm. If I didn't overdo it at the gym, we wouldn't have this problem.


Oh. I kid.

I haven't stepped foot into our local gym since last summer when it was too hot out to do a training walk for the Breast Cancer 3-Day 60-mile walk.

No, but seriously, I've been having a pain in my forearm and it's worse when I try to grab something. Last week when I was grocery shopping it was a whole new experience because a lot of the things I needed were on the higher shelves. You know it's bad when another person in the aisle looks at you as you make a face to hide the pain and let out a little whimper.

And all I was grabbing was a 2-liter bottle of Diet Coke.

Anyway, I made a doctor's appointment for this morning. After paying my $25 copay and spending a grand total of 90 seconds with the doctor, I was told it was tennis elbow.

She told me take some advil and wear a brace that I can get at Target. Oh. She also said, "...and don't use your arm. Use the other one."

What? Excuse me? I'm right handed. I work on a computer all day. I'm right eye dominant with means that I do everything leading with my right. And I'm not supposed to use it?

Hummm....we'll see how that goes.

And in Other News...

I was given this great news earlier this week and I am so delayed in sharing it! Rachel Ann over at Rachel Ann's Place thinks I'm a pretty big deal. She likes my blog so much that she gave me a little Bloggy Bling!

Check this out....


I know you're jealous. Thank you Rachel Ann for this wonderful award. Part of the award requires that I list 7 things that I love.

Just 7? Goodness me. If I write, friends, family, relationship with God and other things like that, it takes up most of my 7. Don't get me wrong, I love all of those, but let's make this fun. OK...let's see.

1. The Big Guy. Come on....I have to put him first!
2. Making connections again on Facebook with awesome people.
3. Finding good deals at Target on the clearance end caps
4. Fix it and Forget it--Lightly, a cookbook for your crock pot. Seriously--it's the best.
5. Lite Latte's from Caribou Coffee
6. Finding new music for the iPod.
7. Sleeping in on the weekends. Amen.

Now, I'm supposed to pass this on--but I'm a rebel and I'm going to say that I love ALL the blogs I read and just cannot pick 7 for this award. But Rachel Ann is super awesome, so if you haven't been by to see her place, you better get over there. She's a cutie patootie!

I'm off to drink my latte and listen to my iPod while dreaming of what to make in the crock pot next week.

Congratulations! It couldn't go to better blogger. Sorry I've been away so long. I've been sidetracked by the ice storm/no electricity thing. I love the new blog look-great colors. Can I just say I don't know how you folks up north handle your winters. I've so over winter, and watching the cold rain fall as I type this just makes my head hurt.

Jason, as himself said...

Can I tell you that I have never once set foot in a gym other than the ones in schools?

How do you get tennis elbow? Especially if you don't play tennis?

If ya didn't get it from playing tennis,is it really tennis elbow? Maybe it's computer elbow or something.
