It's been a long time since my last update, and there's no way I'm going to catch up on everything. The short version is that things are going well: work is good, the kid has been at overnight camp for the past three weeks and is going to be there for four more, and K and I have been able to see a lot of each other.

Which means also that K has been keeping me busy. For example, I took off work Thursday and Friday, which, combined with the holiday, made for a five-day weekend. In that time, we went to a barbecue, climbed for two days upstate, kayaked, and did a lot of push-ups.

I honestly can't remember the last time I was this happy.

After skiing on Saturday, yesterday was a quiet Sunday at home for me and the boy. We were both tired, he was a little sick (he had been pretty snotty in the car on the way to the Poconos; good on him for having fun skiing anyway), and it was awfully cold. We played video and board games, watched TV, and cleaned up a little in anticipation of his mother's return that afternoon.

I'm still sore, mainly in ways and places I didn't expect. My ankles and lower shins are blistered and bruised from the ski boots: I'll have to wear thicker socks next time. I have a low-grade stiff neck, and my lower right leg is also a little sore and stiff. Some of this is doubtless due to unfamiliar strains on various parts of my body, but pushing the boy around likely strained muscles and joints in ways that are unusual even for skiers.

My left elbow is also still a little sore, probably from climbing last Tuesday with the boy, [livejournal.com profile] regyt, [livejournal.com profile] novalis, [livejournal.com profile] kinfae, and another munchkin. At the boy's insistence, I tried a dynamic move a couple of times while bouldering, and I may have strained something while trying to catch the next hold.

Then again, also while bouldering, I fell off the wall and, while falling, noticed that the small persons had somehow wandered into my landing zone while I had been paying attention to the wall. I had to twist to avoid squishing them and landed badly. Maybe I hurt it in the fall.

Whatever the cause, any joint or muscle pain is making me unduly nervous these days and probably will do so for the next few weeks or even months. I came down with a throat infection of unknown origin shortly after having finished a course of antibiotics for something else. Because of that history, my doctor prescribed a second-line antibiotic of doom, which had interesting side effects on me such as fatigue, dizziness, and anorgasmia. What is more pertinent is that other side effects can include tendinitis and even tendon rupture. Whoopie.

I am going to try very hard not to get any more infections ever again.

I got a lot of exercise last week, including climbing and a lot of various forms of cardio, and culminating with skiing yesterday in the Poconos. Today, I'm a little tired and sore, and I've been famished all week.

This was the third time I'd ever tried to ski. Cut for length . . . )
