Heading off to work…

Running

I have not attempted a run since last Friday’s shin pain.  For one reason or another, it just hasn’t been possible.  However, my running partner will be home today, so I plan to do a short 2 miles with him today after work.  We shall see how THAT goes!  I am hoping & praying that the shin stays good – I will be SO upset if that pain comes back again!!

Knitting

I’ve been working on the Draco socks as much as I can, even knitting on them during my lunch hour yesterday.  I am nearly to the heel turn, yay!  These are toe up, by the way, folks.  I do love toe up socks – they are great for when you aren’t sure how much yarn you have left.  I would deeply hate to work on a pair of socks for a week or more only to discover that I haven’t got enough yarn to finish them!  OUCH.

This & That

Really not a whole lot else going on.  Been reading fan fiction quite a bit lately.  Though the story I’ve been reading (which is painfully long, btw) is truly awful, I keep reading it.  I guess because it started off so bad, but with an intriguing enough storyline that I just really want to see how it is all going to play out.  Happily, I have a couple more stories that others have recommended, so I will have more good fan fics to read.  :)

So the fiasco with the lost retainer?  Yeah, the manlet *broke* one of them over the weekend at his father’s.  Snapped the sucker right in two.  *sigh*  Luckily, the cost to replace wasn’t TOO horrible.
