I am ex-wah-sted! I ran errands all day long and am still running kids around for their doings. Well, right now I am taking a break between drop-offs and pick-ups, checking e-mails, etc. My hip and knee are a little sore from the walking around, but I hope the stretches are helping. One suggestion I found for the IT band problem is to roll on my side from my hip to my knee on a foam roller to “break up scar tissue.” I looked at the stores I went to today, but the closest thing I could find was a pool noodle. I’m not sure that it would work because it is hollow down the center. I probably need to look at a sporting good store.
My youngest has been asking me to make a list of what I want for my birthday. My husband made one for himself for Christmas – about a month ahead – and ended up buying half of the things on it – before Christams. His birthday is 3 weeks after mine, and he already has a list of what he wants on the refrigerator. I think he’s already bought one item. Makes me wonder if the list thing is a good idea. But I went ahead and made a list today while I was shopping; I wrote down a few things and created a “Mommy’s Wants and Wishes” list. My little one said, “Does it only have chocolate on it?” when I handed it to him. He knows me too well. But I added the foam roller and a couple of other things just to make him happy. I will try to be patient and wait to buy what I don’t get after my birthday – maybe with all of the birthday $$$ I get 🙂
