Sleeping with the lights on

So I was flipping between the Oscars and a few other channels around 10:15 when I fell asleep with the lights and TV etc. Needless to say (but I'm going to do it anyway), it was a rough night of sleep as I awoke several times this morning around 3:45 and then 4:30 and then 7:30. It's ok that I overslept a bit since I'm working from home today and I'll just have to work later in the day.

My knee isn't feeling as great as it was yesterday. While I bend my good left leg to about 45 degrees, I can only bend my right leg to about 70 degrees. I'm pretty sure it's just really sore and a little swollen since my mom said so, and it was my first running in about four months. If I can only do serious running stuff once a week, I'm fine with that since ultimate meets every Sunday.

I don't mind staying at home because of some wicked snowstorm, but it's 1 PM and we've had next to no snowfall while as of 5 PM yesterday, the weatherpeople (Ya gotta be PC sometimes) said a few inches would be on the ground by the morning rush hour. So people like myself worked from home and the county school systems closed for the day to avoid a hellish commute home later. It's all good since the work I'm doing now is the same stuff I'd be doing at the office and I get to stay in my pajamas :) Since this blog is still very young, I think a picture would be a bit much right now.

Let's see just how much snow we get in the next few hours. I'm trying hard to cut the weatherpeople a break since they can't control the storm's track, etc, but to go from 10 inches down to 4 is a big change. And don't get me started on the stupid banter between weatherpeople and TV anchors (that'll be the next post).lates.

No torn ligaments this time

I finally got enough confidence to give ultimate frisbee on the polo fields another try today (I tore the meniscus in my right knee last November playing ultimate in DC). While the orthopedist said I should try running for 30 minutes and calling it a day, I was stubborn and played for about two hours. I felt no pain which is good, but my endurance left a lot to be desired. I'm sure that'll come back soon enough as long as I keep getting myself out there each Sunday. I took it pretty easy today and didn't try any hard cuts and took little steps when I tried stopping which probably helped things along. I had two nice throws for scores, but still had some bad ones as well. I caught one score on a nice run down the right side which gave me confidence on my knee's condition. Time for some big time snow tomorrow and working from home.

The hardest step is always the first

Wow, and they never said it would happen. Even I've got a blog. Right now, there's not much to find since this is the first entry, but fear not, the blog my mom is most addicted to will soon be running full steam ahead, all systems go, ready for action (and whatever other cliches you can think of about getting going).

Come back for intersting links, thoughts, rants, raves, and the rare sports column from me. And if you don't think that sounds intriguing, well I sure do!
