Coffee Talk

Good Sunday morning! Can you believe that summer is half over? It feels that way, anyhow. This week we leave for our annual Maine vacation. When we get back, my son starts band camp, which pretty much occupies the entire month of August. Then it’s back to school.

I know, it’s only July 12th and I have the better part of summer left, but it seems like it’s flying by.

Juggling the kids’ and my work and my physical therapy appointments is a challenge, but we’re managing. I’m really happy with my new physical therapist. He is definitely taking a more aggressive approach than I’m used to, which is what I need right now. Some of his methods remind me of a chiropractor. He does manipulations in addition to soft tissue work and strengthening exercises, and he believes that we can make a lot of progress in a short period of time if I come in daily, so it’s definitely been time consuming, but it’s good.

Since I’m leaving for 2.5 weeks, I’m all for doing as much as I can before we go. I just hope I don’t lose any of the progress we make when I’m gone. I’ll have to be diligent with my exercises, and diligence is not my strong suit, so we’ll see.

I’m still run/walking 2 miles most days, although I know I need to cross train, so this morning my husband and I are taking to the trail for a bike ride before church.

We have a busy day planned with several social functions, so I need to cut this short and get a move on.

I’m really excited about our vacation coming up. We are going to Maine by way of Cooperstown, NY and Manchester, VT. I’ll be sharing our escapades on Instagram, so if you enjoy following along, make sure you’re following me on Instagram.

Enjoy your Sunday!
