Tuesday Open Thread

April 17, 2012

Happy Tuesday!

I’m in the midst of a pathetic little pity party. My mysterious injury has worsened to the point that I decided not to run my first full marathon on May 6th. I am SO dejected and disappointed. I have never really had to deal with an injury like this, so I’m kind of at a loss. I made an appointment with my primary care physician for April 30; in the meantime I will be seeing a highly recommended massage therapist and taking a break from running (gulp). Anyone out there have experience with a chiropractor, positive or negative? This is a pain in my left hip area, pretty high up (maybe my pelvic bone?). The pain radiates to my lower back. So odd, and so frustrating.

In other news . . . who watched Mad Men on Sunday night? OMG! What was your favorite moment? I loved everything about the fistfight scene, I was LOLing big time. Best moment since the riding lawnmower scene, IMHO.

In political news, the comically tone-deaf GOP predictably blocked the Buffet Rule Bill. Polls show that 7 out of 10 Americans are in favor of such a bill.

What’s on your mind? Chat away!
