1. My physical therapy’s getting nuts, y’all. The little ankle exercises that I could do on the couch have morphed into things with elastic bands and single-legged squats and crabwalking everywhere and doing what amounts to a solid circuit workout twice a day. So if you see me hobbling around and making faces when I do tricky things like breathing, that’s why. But also, I feel strong and a little awesome for the first time since my injury, and you don’t know how good that feels.
2. I have a new plan for my dissertation and fourteen weeks to complete it and I am READY. So ready. Cheer me on, why don’t you? Ask me how I’m doing. Offer me tissues when I immediately burst into tears. You know the drill.
3. Maybe the most important thing to tell you guys: I’m finally making the switch from Blogger to WordPress! (You should hear a little ta-da! in your head.) The transition will happen over this weekend and you might notice some small aesthetic changes, but you shouldn’t need to do any feed-fixing or re-subscribing or what have you, unless you’re following me through Blogger itself. But just in case, check in with me on Monday? I don’t want anyone to fall by the wayside without realizing it.
It’s Friday–shall I sing you out? Or maybe I’ll let these guys do it. They’ve been in my hum all week, and I really like to share. In the meantime, tell me about your weekend. Doing anything fun? Let’s chat.
