Day 261: I *heart* My Podiatrist

He happens to be married to my yoga instructor.  And he just became my podiatrist today.  And he didn't tell me he disapproved of my new running shoes (as I expected).  He did tell me that I have tendinitis (as I expected).  And that we can wait two weeks to see if that is accompanied by a fracture (I don't think it is).  And then he dropped the Joyful Moment on me when he told me that I should be able to run again in four days.  FOUR!!!  Waaaaaayyyyyyy less than I expected.  Unfortunately, I have to be all hopped up on Ibuprofen for the next two weeks for this to happen, but I need my running, so I'll do it.

Don't tell my dad.  He's very anti-ibuprofen.

And then we had our neighbor over for dinner tonight.  Her husband is out of town on a hunting trip and every day I look at her house and think how lonely she must be, so tonight we had her over.  I just love her.  So, it was a Joyful Moment dining next to her.  And having her love my Chicken and Gnocchi Soup so much that she requested the recipe.  Everyone I've ever served it to has requested the recipe.  It's sort of a Joyful Moment in and of itself.  I was going to post it for you tonight, but then I got this funky headache. So, let me know if you're interested and I can post it later this week.

And now, I'm going to take my aching head to bed so I can experience more Joyful Moments tomorrow.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments of unexpected excellent news!

I totally want the recipe, especially since I know it must be dairy free.

My lips are sealed about the ibuprofen (unless I forget...)

I am so joyful today - I get to spend the next 2 weeks with my oldest daughter and her family. And I'm here for the arrival of her new baby boy tomorrow. I love living close enough to family to see them more often. My family brings me a WHOLE LOT OF JOY!
