I went for a run today. In spite of still having a sinus infection that makes my teeth hurt like crazy and an ear infection dulling my hearing, I headed out the door while the girls were busy learning at school. I figure I need to get a few runs in before I attempt this:
For the record, I am running the half instead of the full. I am in no shape to run 26.2 miles right now. But the one good thing that came out of forced rest was a hip that feels like it's finally back to normal. And while I am not overly excited about the race, I am excited for the weekend. A little nervous to be without my girls, but excited for a grown-up weekend! And to see some of my favorite people.

Also for the record, I did not run the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. After being up half the night because my ear ached, I went to Urgent Care instead of to the race. Don't be too jealous. I am now on antibiotics and finally feel like this mess of a cold/sinus infection/ear infection is on its way out.

As far as the title of this post, the change coming my way is that I have taken a full-time editing job. I will be working from home, but it will take some time to get into a new routine and schedule. So please be patient with me if I am MIA for days at a time on here or don't comment on your blogs as often. I'm going to try to keep up on your lives as much as possible, but I will do a lot of it from my phone and it's a pain in my runnerd booty to leave comments from my phone.

Don't worry too much though. I have some fun things in store for December, including the return of the singing runnerd.

And now to finish off my month of gratitude:

November 24th - Turkey.
November 25th - Christmas movies. And TV specials. Like Prep & Landing. And Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown.
November 26th - My Honda Pilot. Which is good because sometimes I feel like it is like my second home.
November 27th - Dr. Pepper. Sad but true.
November 28th - Doctors and veterinarians. I like people who can make my little family and me feel better when we don't feel our best.
November 29th -Pumpkin pie shakes. I might even be more thankful for these than for actual pumpkin pie.
November 30th (a day early) - Millie. I couldn't go all month without being grateful for Millie. Even if she is has spent more time as a place to hang clothes the past week than as my running buddy, I still love her.

What are you most thankful for today?
