Rainy days and Mondays

Yes, I've been feeling a little down.
Here are a few things that have cheered me back up though:
I had such a nice brunch with some fellow 101 bloggers (also BookCrossers and GoodReads readers) here is a pic of us outside Toast 2 in Chicago. As you can see it was still raining from Ike the terrible... I hear we got more rain than TX! Bethany and me are in the picture, and Latharia was our picture taker (see their 101 lists on the side-bar to the right). It was such a good time... and yummy too, right girls?
Also, I'm feeling a little bit better. I had been so hopeful that the new orthotics would be the key to getting over the foot pain... but a week ago Monday (a very rainy day as well) I was pretty filled with doubt and frustration since so much pain persisted. After a little cry and half an order of 13 chocolate chip cookies from McDonald's and three huge glasses of milk... well then I was filled with milk cookies and queasiness really. But THEN, I started to feel better. Dr. Shelly had me read The Fat Flush Plan (maybe this will help me with #85 see my tummy muscles too?). Anyway, the plan should help with inflammation. The Zone diet also helps with inflammation and I've tried to adjust my diet (I know, I know, except for that whole cookie episode) and have made some of the recipes. So maybe now all the good nutrition is starting to kick in.
Our bowling league started back up! Yes, it's good to get out and all, but I also had tendinitis in my elbow. It did hurt while bowling and I tried to be very cautious and iced it when we got home. Here is the funny thing though... it actually feels better! Isn't that weird? Dr. Shelly says it prolly broke up the adhesion. :P
Well I don't have anything to tick off the list at this point... but I haven't been slacking off really either.
#1 Been doing the daily practice for the most part but lost track of how many days it's been. I'll have to review the calendar and count all over grrrr, but at least I did mark it.
#5 Also have lost track but I did do it... to videos and that counts.
#90 Gosh I got behind on setting a book free per month this summer... but I did just search out people who had wish lists for books I have and offered them up to them.
#43 I have been searching for music mixing software... but I don't want to download one until I'm sure it fits my needs.
#44 I may not need to make music mixes after all... I got an ipod for my b-day and can just add play lists to it.
#37 I don't have an audition yet, but did drop off a resume at Five Seasons (they want instructors for night so that might not work out) and called a country club near me to see if they offer classes... they don't.
Looks like I need to get my butt in gear with household stuff... I'll try and tick some of those off soon!

I will be passing through Chicago next summer... Perhaps an international get-together is in order? :)
