Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Would.Like.To.Catch.A.Break

So, I'd really like to catch a break here. Not only am I trying to heal from surgery, I have a horrible rash. Oh, it's not your run of the mill rash. It's an angry, hivey, whelpy, I will make you miserable in any way possible rash. And yes this rash is down there on my hiney. It appears I am having an allergic reaction to surgical tape.Really? Come on here? Can't I just catch a break?

So I called the Dr's office. They called me back and said the Dr. said to swipe nail polish remover "down there' to try to remove any tape residue. I bet you didn't see that coming did you? At this point, I'm about ready to try anything. So off I go with my bottle of nail polish remover. At first swipe, I thought maybe it was going to help. Two hours later, I'm back on the phone with the Dr's office, asking, begging, pleading to see if there is anything I can do to stop this intense itching.

So where am I with this upcoming marathon that is in 11 days? Currently I'm crying. Hey, I just had my rear cut and cored open like an apple (according to my husband - you have to love his analogy). So I think I'm allowed a few minutes of emotional weeping. Do I want to try? Yes. Do I think it would be a wise decision to try? I don't know. Do I think I have a chance of finishing? I'm not so sure. I need to run this weekend. But right now, unless something changes drastically, I don't see me getting a training run in this weekend.

So right now.. I'm torn.. literally and emotionally on so many levels ...
