Yep...that's what I'm giving you...a little the form of two posts in one week!

And this one won't even be about running.

For the record, if one more person tells me "I only read your blog posts that don't have to do with running because that running stuff doesn't make any sense to me", I'm going to S-C-R-E-A-M. It's running...put one foot in front of the other. How complicated is that? Besides, look at the's not called "Amy's RUNNING Life" for nothing...

But I digress, because this week I've only run 12 miles and I won't be allowed to run again until no running updates. Boo for that.

Actually, now that I'm typing, I'm thinking this post is going to be short and sweet. Because typing with 1 1/2 arms is no fun. Want to know why?

On Thursday, Dr. 90210 decided that I needed yet another surgery on my arm (actually, he decided many months ago but we just got around to doing it now). So, I had this huge dent in my arm (and yes, I know my husband owns a company that removes dents...just not this kind of dent...actually, I think if I would have let him, he would have tried). At any rate, Dr. 90210 moved some fat around (unfortunately not from my butt) and made my dent go away. Or at least we hope it did. I'm now in a half cast with my arm splinted at an approximate 90 degree angle. And it's my left arm. And I'm left handed. Which is making normal life a little difficult. And to top it off, because Dr. 90210 doesn't want to have to repeat surgery (for a 4th time) he doesn't want me doing anything...including running. He sucks.

Oh, and Troy watched the whole thing. I, on the other hand, turned Micheal Buble up really really loud on my ipod and kept my eyes closed for the whole thing. Yes, I was awake during it all. And yes, on more than one occasion I thought I was going to pass out. It never hurt but it all just felt a weird sort of way that made me want to pass out.

So, I'm left with nothing to do for the weekend except drink beer and surf the Internet. that I type it, it doesn't sound so bad.

In other unrelated news, I still heart my new job in a much bigger way than I ever thought I would. I've been so busy I haven't really had time to stop and think about whether I miss my other job or not. I like relatively being on my own schedule. I like sitting in my office at home and working from my pajamas. I like feeling busy and productive and actually making a difference for my future. I just love it! It's been one month since I left the cushy life of a government employee and by the looks of the way business is running, I definitely made the right decision.

So, there...a little blog love...have a great weekend!
