Updating Updates

First off I must say to everyone thank you for the support.I was having a bad day and I had to keep these hands busy.

A great big thank you goes out to Jonathan. I got a surprise voice mail that was up lifting,and just a sheer surprise, That I cried listening to it. :) Happy tears.

We had a family meeting after everyone got home and cleared the air.Everyone is going to be earning the MNSSHP back.If not they know they will get stuck in the room.

The power suppy burned up in my computer and I have not been able to get on line till today from the desk.

Now the calf muscle is getting better.Some of the girls from work recommended to ice the leg down at 20 minutes a time 4-6 times a day. I must say it has been working very well.Tenderness more than pain.No limping. I was thinking on Monday that I would try to ride the bike at the gym and gain some cardio.So I will feel ready for Saturday.

The Disney premeir stores have been having a run on $1.99 pins.I have to say we bought enough to trade with nearly every CM in all the parks. And we bought one of the three hitch hiking ghost tomb stones.We go get our second one on Sunday. The third one is still in the parks and has not been sent to the store yet. Do you want to know for how much???? Please be seated you my pass out. OK $ 29.99. Is that a steal or what!!??

I hear the weather is going to be really nice for next weekend. That will be great. :) while we are there we are going to go and check out some of the resorts. Take pictures,ask about the history on them.Any suggestions???

We are going to get to see Hallo wishes. Video taping it and pictures with the new camera.Can't wait!!!!!I can't wait to see the headless horsemen go down Main Street. Mickey and Minnie in there costumes and tricking or treating. Come on how many people do we ever run in to that can say they have done that?{ Other than everyone on the boards.}

This Thursday is the official day the MK has open. 36 years.14 more to go and it will be 50 years!!! I know I am 7 months older. That is going to be exciting too!!!! And I hope we can be in the right place at the right time to get a wish. :)

Did you see the report on the car that went in to a canal on WDW property and 3 children were in the back seat and now they all are in ICU??? OMG!!!!! The driver has lost control of her car and went in to the canal.The driver and the passenger got out fine but the children did not. :(

My heart goes out to them. :(

Back to work tomorrow.{ugh} But It is the count down to Disney!!!!!!! I so need this.

Train hard,have fun, PLEASE stay injury free!!!!!!

Hi Rae,

Happy to see your post today and
glad to hear that your calf musle is feeling better. Biking at the gym sounds like a good no impact approach to seeing how it feels. Be certain to listen to your body and don't push too hard. I do hope you can participate in the TOT13k and enjoy a comfortable pace.

Last night I shared with Bryan Ripper that I was doing a virtual TOT13k here in Iowa next Saturday night. I told him it would be like having a Dole whip at the Iowa State Fair. Good but not quite the same. He got a good laugh on of that.

I would love to be at MNSSHP just to see the headless horseman. Icabod is one of my all time favorite Disney cartoon classics. To see part of that come to life in the MK would be really cool.

Tell next time, stay healthy

I had a severely strained calf back in late May. The best cross training I found was deep water pool running. You get one of those "floaty" belts on. Then go to the deepest end and start toward the shallow end using a running motion, but never touch the ground. Just go back and forth - it's like running without the impact. You can get out of breath just by pushing harder.

Sports massages also help.

Hi Rae!

Can't wait to see you again. It will be fun to meet your family too.

My ankle swelled up again last night but it looks better today. It still hurts when I run. So I'll just have to play it day by day for Saturday.

I'll be sending good vibes your way for your calf to be all better.

See you soon. :-)
