Five on Friday

This is my first time linking up with this wonderful group!  I've got a lot of randomness going on so I figured now would be a good time to try a Five on Friday!

I think Mr. Skinny Geek is starting to really enjoy tennis.  Now that he's working hard and taking lessons and getting those swings down pat.  He can only improve from here!

Remember my Achilles pull a few months back?   It has been better, but after a long day, I can usually "notice" it.  It doesn't hurt nearly as bad as before and I can definitely walk and run on the ankle, but I did notice something really weird last night.  When I touch it, I feel a burning sensation.  Not necessarily on the skin itself but more like within the leg.  It's really weird and strange and I'm going to give my doc a call today.  I never actually saw him when the Achilles pull happened but this is cause enough for me to show a little concern now and I just want to get it checked out and make sure that I still have a green light to go on with everything that I'm already doing.

Impromptu trip to NOLA tomorrow!  We are going to visit the World War II Museum.  I've been wanting to do that FOREVER.  It's been a really long time since we have been and they are having a Bob Hope Exhibit there and it is only running through the end of this month.  We probably aren't going to do anything but the museum but it would be nice to visit the zoo again soon!  The weather seems like it is finally starting to cool down.

I really need to decide on my next 5K and get my rear back into running regularly.  I'm wanting to sign up for a Turkey Trot but the one in BR starts at 8.  I was hoping for one to start a bit earlier, because we usually are knee deep in cooking even at 8 in the morning.  I may have to do my very own Turkey Trot around the neighborhood (or turkey waddle, as the case may be).

Busy weeks/weekends from here til November.  A week from today we will be in Lake Charles watching the Barenaked Ladies!  FINALLY!  We had a week from hell this past July when we were supposed to go see them in Dallas but between our refrigerator breaking and the A/C dying in the middle of July, we were unable to swing that trip.  Also next weekend my uncle is coming in for a visit from Florida so we will be busy visiting.

  1. I just found your blog about a week ago and it's great and interesting to read.

    You will LOVE the Barenaked Ladies. I've seen them four times and it's been worth every penny. I wanted to go this year, but I had way too many other concerts already planned. Their new album is, as always, fantastic, and if you haven't heard it yet, I highly recommend you do.

    1. Thanks so much!!!
      Yea, I'm really excited! They've been my favorite band for um, about 15 years now and this is my first time actually seeing them! Super duper excited! I watched the new video of "Odds Are" the other day. Loved it! I think they are doing an AMA on Reddit today. :)

  3. Glad Mr. Skinny Geek is loving tennis! What a great couples event for the 2 of you!

    TURKEY TROT! Hahaha! I love the name! That's awesome! You could totally just map out a route for yourself and run it. I'll hold you accountable! ;)

    1. Thanks! Yea, plus the local race that I've heard on Thanksgiving they are trying to break a guiness world record or something so that tells me that traffic may be a nightmare! More and more the "waddle" around my neighborhood is sounding better and better!

  4. barenaked ladies! I'm most jealous, I hope nothing comes between you and their show this time!

    I agree with Shannon, a turkey trot sounds like a brilliant idea and you should totally do it!

      Yea, whether I am in an actual race or not I'm definitely going to do something to counteract all the Thanksgiving food!

  8. This is the first post I've read of someone who did a 5 on Friday post. I've seen them before but kind of swept over. Maybe it's a good way to get to know about people.
