Better than Planned

After much wondering and many stretches,
I was able to play all 6 of my Ultimate playoff games this week.
I was very excited to be back.
This is our 3rd place team in the "Have Fun" division. :)
I went to physio today - where I was told that I don't need to come back for 2 weeks. No more ice, a few more stretches, and hopefully next time around I'll be totally finished. When I think of where I was a month ago, I am totally thankful for what I can do. God is good.

Today was back at school as well.
I don't think I got much done.
It's amazing how much time a person can spend in a small room
and really do very little.
Oh heh.

And here is my new haircut.
It's actually short and curly,
but I'm not convinced on the length yet.
They tell me it's cute,
but I'm going with the straightened version.
I quite like it.
And it adds at least an inch - maybe two.

Okay, I don't really have much to say.
I've been back at work
and might actually be organized when I begin this year.
I'm not writing myself off just yet.

However, in exciting news
I played Ultimate tonight
and my shoulder totally works.
It wasn't sore at all and I didn't hold back.
Except on the running part.
I haven't run for almost 6 weeks.
That's a long time to undo endurance training.

Time for ice.
Hopefully it's not stiff tomorrow!

Summer Not-So Goodness

That delightful tube ride 2 weeks ago landed me in physio this morning.
No surgery needed, but my ultimate season is over for the summer.
I'm hoping that a lot of diligence on my part
and maybe even the good grace of God
will let my shoulder heal a little more quickly,
allowing me to play during championship weekend.
That's all for now.

On second thought,
If it heals more slowly than anticipated
I may need help putting up all my bulletin boards for the fall.
There may be a little grace of God in there, too.
