I finally left the midwest! I got on a plane for the first time in three years and went to visit my friend in Maine. Traveling on crutches was kind of a pain in the ass, but people were very helpful and I made it. We had a great visit except for me contracting salmonella poisoning from a cheeseburger on the very last night. I was sick for a week and honestly doubt I'll ever eat a burger again because my stomach turns just thinking about it.
After Maine, I flew to New York for a top secret project. I can't wait to be able to blog about it but for now, I'll just share this picture.
Pretty fancy schmancy, huh? Stay tuned. I also got to see my friend Audra in NYC. She was one of my best buddies in college and I hadn't seen her in over a decade. Then I met a new friend, someone who has been hunting down cancer fakers with me, for breakfast. It was a short busy trip and I had a great time, despite feeling like crap.
Last week, I had a friend visit from Holland and my sisters and I took her downtown to take in the sights of Chicago.
THEN, my beautiful cousin Megan got married this past weekend and we had a blast at the wedding.
In exercise news, my hip is doing a lot better. I am up to 2.5 miles on the treadmill, which feels like a miracle. The pain level is much less and I'm very much hoping to toss my crutches for good sometime in the next two weeks. Keep your fingers crossed because I am SICK OF THEM. 19 months is way too long to be hobbling around.
