This is what happens when I'm not training.

I have all this energy, both physical and mental, and end up doing lots of silly things.

For about 6 years I've had a little computer desk. You know, the kind you build yourself and it has the hutch overhead for storing all your computer stuff. Well, it was falling apart, the bird had chewed some of it and the working area was way too small. In the new place I don't have any place to work but my desk and it just wasn't cutting it anymore.

So for the last few days I've been haunting Craigslist and visiting the 2nd had stores looking for a desk. Wednesday I finally found it at Salvation Army. It's a large, flat top desk with 2 drawers on each side, just perfect. So I buy it and stuff it in my Escape and take it home.

When I got it home I discover a) it's HUGE!!! and b) it's doesn't fit through the doorway to my computer room. Okay, after much struggling and finally ending up taking the sides off, I got it in. Once I set the computer up I realized that the kick board is set right in the middle of the desk so there's no where for my tower to sit. Okay....... now what????

Last night I decided to rearrange my computer room (I told you, too much energy) so that I could sit my tower next to the desk instead of under it. I figured that would be my weekend project.

Tonight when I got home, hubby asks me if I can fit the large worktable that I have in the studio in my computer room. Some friends will be visiting for ProBowl in Feb and we need to start getting the studio ready for guest. Okay..... let's see what I can do.

So after measuring everything and being absolutely brutal cleaning my computer room, I move my desk, drag the table in and now have this great work area in my computer room.

I'm very excited!! I now have a huge work area, right in my computer room where my bird lives, and I can now work in the house and not have to sit all alone out in the studio. Woo Hoo!!!

My self imposed rest has definitely helped. My butt feels much better. I have a doc appt. Monday so I'll go and see what they have to say. I'm kind of hoping they send me to physical therapy because the stretches and foam rollers I'm using just aren't working right.

That's all I have. Not working out is really killing me. I find myself with all this pent up energy and I can't go to bed till late and aaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

Okay, I'll go now......

But I think we all need those down times to actually get something done! I'm the same way. I wish I could say with all my down time I was actually accomplishing things that have been put aside for years, but alas, I still like just sitting and doing nothing for my rest. As for the butt pain, look up piriformis and see if the symptoms match what you have. I had that a LONG time ago. At that time, there was NOTHING out there about it, so I suffered for 3 years and lost a lot of fitness in the process and basically had to rebuild every bit of base I ever had. If that's what it is, get that nipped in the bud before it gets you down more. Keep us informed.

Could you bottle some of that energy you have and FedEx it to me overnight?
