Much Needed Update

I have not forgotten about blogging, I swear!!

It has been a crazy few weeks with work travel, new purchases and doctors appointments. So let me do a quick update and then I can get back on blogging track.

A couple of weeks ago I headed to Chicago for the week for some training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia. It was an awesome training and I learned a ton! Unfortunately, on the way back to Lexington, we got stuck in Chicago due to the horrible storms that hit Kentucky with tornadoes. While I was happy not to be flying in the bad weather, I was not happy being stuck in a hotel with a stomach bug. But, that's what happened. Over 30 hours of delays and I made it home to sleep for more than 12 hours.

But when I woke up from my 12 hour nap, my back was in pain. I knew that it was time for a new mattress, so I off I went and bought a new mattress. And no, it's not a Sleep Number? Why do people keep asking me that? It is a memory foam bed and so far I'm loving it!

Speaking of back pain, I've started to go to the chiropractor. So far, I'm not sure that it's really done anything to improve my shoulder, hip, or back. But it's only two weeks in and I'm giving it 3 months time to show improvement.

And then came the biggest purchase of my life so far:

It's a shiny new VW GTI with manual shifting and an overall fun feel.My old 11 year old VW has been replaced with a new model. I can't stop finding reasons to drive my  new car!!
