Saying "it's been a while since I've updated" is an understatement. But I'll try to catch you all up on my life now that I have my computer back. (The fan died and it took me two months to gather up the courage to do something about it.) But it's fix and I no longer have to peck everything out on an iPad keyboard!
Physical therapy has been going well. That is until about a week before Christmas when on one of our few cold days (what's up with that?) I was heading out to the car to scrap the windows and slipped and fell. The hubs rushed me to the German ER and after about 5 hours they told me it's not broken. They wrapped it up, gave me Tiny Tim crutches and sent me on my way. After two months of dealing with that, I was finally cleared to start running again!!! I'm only allowed to do 10-15 minutes on a treadmill at zero incline but it's a start. And just in time to start training for the Prague Marathon Relay!!!! Yes, that will be my return to running race in May!
Also, we have some news on our next steps. As of right now, we will be heading to Fort. Campbell in the Fall. It'll be sad to leave Germany but nice to get back to a normal life in the states. Until then, we will be doing a ton of traveling! In the upcoming months, we have my aunt and uncle coming for about 3 weeks. We'll be taking a trip to Madrid with them among other things. We'll be going to Krakow, Poland for a long weekend, Prague for the marathon, Normandy for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, and then my brother and sister-in-law are planning a visit and one of my cousins will be coming. And that's just what we have planned! We have other things in the works but not finalized yet.
That's all for now. Stay warm and dry!
