We've been a little busy with Arden's dance recital, the long weekend with one day devoted to helping a friend build a play set and then Arden's preschool graduation last night but I don't think those things should be keeping me from sewing to this extent. I guess if I'm going to lay blame, perhaps it's Netflix - Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones!
I (fingers crossed) think I've finally gotten myself into a regular running regimen. I don't think I've discussed it here, but I've had trouble getting back into the swing because I've been undergoing treatment for Morton's Neuroma and I still have some residual bone pain in my pelvis. The bone pain is slowly getting better as I lose weight and with passage of time. For the Morton's Neuroma I've received three injections of cortisone which didn't resolve it (it had worked like a charm in the past), and am now on my second injection of an alcohol solution which seems to be doing the trick. The only remaining treatment if the alcohol doesn't work is surgery.
Aside from improving medical issues, I literally accosted a girl in the hallway at work after I had seen her running and thought we would be a good match for pace. As she was making her way towards the locker room, it went something like this (names changed to protect the innocent):
Jann "Hey, do you want to run with me sometime?"
Carli (looking caught off guard) "Uh, sure."
Jann "I saw you running and I want to get back into a regular routine, will you run with me?"
Jann "I know I sound like a stalker, but really I'm not."
Carli "Sure, when do you want to go?"
So "Carli" gets brownie points for not running away shrieking, or maybe that was only because we were at work, and we've made our inaugural run and it was really nice and fun. She had just run a half marathon the weekend before and then was in a car crash and was bruised from that. She has two boys who are several years older than my girls. Hopefully as she recovers from the race and I get faster with practice we'll continue to be well matched for pace.
Okay, so if you've made it this far, another fun thing is that I'm now a member of the Clever Girls Collective!
What does this mean for you? It should bring some product reviews and awesome giveaways. We all like giveaways, right? The advertisers they work with look like they'll be a really nice fit for what A Jennuine Life is all about.
And lastly, I found the dates that my nautical flag banners will be promoted on One Kings Lane. They will be part of an event titled "Day of New England" and will be live June 7 - 9. Don't worry, I'll be giving you more reminders as the big day gets closer. In the meantime, why not sign up for One Kings Lane, they've got some uh-maze-ing stuff (you know, besides my awesome banners)!
