No Pain, No Gain

Whoever coined the phrase "no pain, no gain" may have had long distance running in mind.

After my 11 mile jaunt yesterday - I stepped into the shower ready for blissful heat to sooth and relax my muscles...and nearly screamed when the water hit what was a previously unnoticed chafing blister.

Yes - I have a lovely dime-sized rather awful chafing blister on my right....hmm...how to put it - the spot normally covered by my sports bra.  LOL.  I was generous with the Neosporin post shower and again this morning - it looks ugly and mean.  Note to self - better coverage with the bodyglide next time.

I also had the joy of popping a blister on my middle right toe that appeared before I got the rock out of my shoe.   More Neosporin and a band aid.  Good thing I used the extra bit in my medical savings account for Neosporin last year!  LOL

My feet also felt like they had bruises on them when I first got up....but that will not stop me from going to Costco and making use of our latest coupons.

Anywhoodle - I just had to put that in my blog somewhere for Sarah - in less than 24 hours, so long as the baby doesn't do anything stupid like CROSS HIS/HER legs during the ultrasound, I should find out if the baby is a boy or a girl tomorrow morning.  YAY!

Any guesses before the truth is known?

I will say - I had a dream about the baby being a girl.  My husband thinks the baby is a boy.  Of course - we just want a healthy baby - boy or girl doesn't matter.

Although - I can't wait to buy him or her some cute little running shoes.

Oh yes -I asked the husband what my spending limit is for tomorrow - it is already a given that once I know boy/girl I WILL be buying a few things tomorrow.   That's just the way it is.  :D


  1. I think I'm guessing boy. Either way, you should definitely name it Sarah (kidding, I actually hate my name). You are going to tell us right away, right? I need time to get my knit on unless you want a bunch of yellow stuff.

    And I totally love you for your perfect use of the word anywhoodle. 3 gold stars for you, friend!

  2. I have a prediction, it's gonna be mooning the camera.


Comments pretty much make my day - so thank you for yours!
