Resolutions, Cars and the Joy of Having a Rib Cage

So, this week went better in regards to my resolutions. I think bringing it up in my blog earlier this week really helped me get excited about the resolutions I had made as well as why I had made them! Some of my resolutions I did more days that I had originally planned. I also felt like I had been cheating a little bit on some of my resolutions last week so I resolved to be better about them this week. I definitely managed to be better about them! I feel great about my week! Yay!

Two weeks ago today, TJ was heading up to Arapahoe Basin for Ski Patrol tryouts and heading up I-70 on a Saturday morning has a ton of traffic. Long story short, an accident happened, no one was hurt and our vehicle had way more damage than the other person’s. Took it to see how much the damage was and it was totaled. So, we have been driving around a rental car for the past couple of weeks. A Dodge Avenger. The nerd inside me definitely was super excited about the name. Lol. We drove it around until just the other day we found a car that met our needs almost exactly. We bought a 2006 scion. It is one of those boxy looking cars. I don’t have pictures at the moment and TJ took it to work so there will be pictures later! But it has so much room inside. Enough for a couple friends as well as two pups! It gets just as good of gas as the Honda Fit if not better. So, there we are, we have a new addition to the Parnell household!

Around the same time as the accident, I must have fallen skiing or something. I have had sore rib since. The only thing I can remember is doing a Jillian Michaels DVD and not being able to finish because my rib was killing me! So, it has been super sore off and on since then. I’m trying to just take it easy and let the rib heal. I have come to realize I am terrible at taking it easy. First, I have a relatively physically demanding job. I do a lot of stocking shifts at work which means some lifting of sometimes heavy boxes. I love stocking but my rib does not. Lol. Then I just want to be outside, hiking or skiing or walking the dogs. That is not a good idea right now. Today was 50 degrees! It was screaming to have me outside because that is the warmest it has been in a while! But I am doing as the doctor (aka TJ) ordered and trying to lay around and let it heal. Seriously, so much harder than it seems!

Well, anyway. I’m off to laying around again!

See ya!
