I don't know if it was just because last week I did not move off my couch, but I am definitely ready for Friday this week. Since I didn't post yesterday, I wanted to fill you in because I went to a new doctor about my knee troubles. I would not say he gave me a ton of new information, but he did explain to me a couple of things I did not understand (including why people were using patellafemoral syndrome and patella tendonitis as though they were the same disease- they are not, but apparently I have some symptoms of both yipee haha). He also ordered me an MRI, so I'll be getting that done on Sunday. Hopefully I'll know more soon :)
I also went to spinning last night for the first time in 2 weeks. It did bring me 17 miles closer to 200 miles by 2010...but whew, remind me not to skip 2 weeks again!
Finally, today is my sister's 21st birthday. We are going out tonight so I have to begin the hair straightening process. I almost never wear my hair straight but since I have to wait for Eric to get home from football to go out, I figure this will keep me awake. Just for fun, let's flashback to my 21st birthday. It was 4 1/2 years ago...
My birthday is in June, which means that I was living at home for the summer AND my birthday was a Wednesday night. This combo does not make for a crazy 21st birthday, but I did have some of my favorite people with me. Plus, let's be honest, I probably had enough bar insanity when I studied abroad in Australia to last me well past my 21st birthday.
Including, my beautiful and amazing college roommate Ashley who happened to be living in Boston that summer to work.
Fun times on Wednesday nights haha. The funny thing is, for that time in life drinking and going out on Wednesday night isn't that weird. But in the summer, it all gets different because everyone has jobs...I guess thats why we all calm down a bit after college, that whole job thing...
Anyway, for obvious reasons (being 16 and all) Caroline was not able to celebrate my 21st birthday with me BUT I will be able to celebrate with her. It's actually amazing to me that she is really just legal today. I completely think the drinking age should be 18 myself, or maybe the day you graduate high school. That would be awesome, then I never would've had to sit at home with Katie while all of our friends went out...awesome. But enough of my opinions :) I hope everyone has a great weekend!
