Tomorrow, tomorrow, I dread ya, tomorrow...

Tomorrow is either going to be a wonderful day or a horrible day. I'm going to see my orthopedic doctor to get some DEFINITIVE answers about my knee situation. I had an x-ray on October 1st (he didn't see any problems) and an MRI in the beginning of November (his secretary called to tell me the MRI showed my knee is inflamed and I was prescribed physical therapy.)

But I have taken time off running, I've seen two physical therapists, a chiropractor, spent $200 on a knee  brace that didn't help,  spent $200 in co-pays, I've had my gait analyzed, I've done my stretches and exercises at home... nothing is working, and I have NO CLEAR ANSWERS!!! Just a lot of "little" things that are wrong with me that wouldn't necessarily cause my knee to hurt for 7 months straight. (If you see a physical therapist, I guarantee they will find at least 3 things wrong with you. My first PT found three and my second one found three different ones.)

I don't mind spending the time and money to fix whatever is going on, but it's just frustrating when it's not getting fixed.

Oh, and I have this weird tissue that rubs over a bone in my knee. I can FEEL and rubbing and sometimes I can hear it popping. I bet that could cause inflammation, right!?

I. WANT. ANSWERS. I don't want a call from a secretary. 

So tomorrow, at my appointment, I will either get a good answer, a bad answer, or no answer at all.

Due to my not running situation, I feel as though I haven't talked about running a whole lot on my blog! And while running is not my only passion nor is it the only focus of my blog, I still enjoy writing about it. However, I haven't had the drive or motivation to write about it lately since I'm not actually running. I feel a little like a fraud too... I feel like I can't write about it if I can't do it. Silly I know.

So I had some ideas for new titles for my blog! The following ideas are more accurate depictions of my life lately, since running is just a dream in my head right now and not a reality!!!

What do you like best for my new blog title? I'm not really going to change it, but what title do you think would garner more readership? I'm leaning toward the carrot cake one...

And since this post started with a song in it's title, let's end with a song! Do you ever make up songs and sing them to your fur babies? I do. All the time.

Chrissy had a great night last night because he found a straw to play with!
So of course, I had to sing him a song...

Sing to the tune of "I Love Paris" by Cole Porter.

I love Kissy in the springtime, I love Kissy in the fall.
I love Kissy in the summer when it sizzles,
I love Kissy in the winter, when it drizzles.
I love Kissy every moment, every moment of they year.
I love Kissy, oh why oh why do I love Kissy?
Because I love dat boy!

(Kissy is my nickname for my cat, Christmas.) I know my song doesn't rhyme at the end but that's okay!

How did you come up with the title for your blog?

If you had to change your blog title, what would you change it to?

Do you make up songs for your fur babies?

Did you ever have to take time off from running? How did you stay sane without eating too much carrot cake?


  1. I really hope you get answers tomorrow about your knee. I also have a PT appointment tomorrow to check on my knee. :S Since I banged it in the door last Friday it feels 'tight' after I run now. I'm so worried!

    I also sing songs to Lola. My favourite is the one I sing on Fridays when I get home from work about the weekend, LOL.

    1. Ooh good luck, I hope it's just from your bump and goes away quickly on it's own! I hope your PT is good. There are so many that are bad!

  2. Ha, I like the one about getting swole! Good luck tomorrow - hope it all goes well!!

  3. I really, really hope you get the answers you're looking for tomorrow. Sending positive vibes your way!

    I sing to my cat all the time, much to the dismay of Adam who 1.) thinks I am a terrible singer and 2.) thinks i'm a little crazy. It's a good thing he loves me anyway!

    1. I had a feeling I wasn't the only one who sang to my cats!

  4. Really hopping you get some answers tomorrow!!! I'm sure you'll keep us posted. I like the carrot cake and polar vortex one. The buzzword of the season! I think if I had to rename my blog it would be the Reluctant Runner. I came up with mine on a whim, mainly because I like how it flowed, and I am first and foremost a personal finance blogger so I liked the idea of a frugally working out and living healthy. I don't sing to my cat, but we have conversations for sure. He sounds like a 12-year-old boy with a cold. :)

    1. Haha do you use a high pitched voice when you talk to him? My voice goes up 3 octaves when I talk to my kitties :)

  5. Oooooooooh I hope you get good news!!

    Those news titles are kind of hilarious. "Meg Go Ice Your Knee" is my favorite because I can totally relate!

    1. Haha thanks! I wish no one had to relate to that one, though!!

  7. I choose: Meg be happy you don't have to run in a Polar Vortex. And yes, I make up songs and sing them to my fur babies all the time! Even outside - I'm sure my neighbors think I'm whacked!
