Back to normal

Work has finally slowed down enough so I only need three hands instead of the two bodies and 6 arms I've felt like I needed two weeks ago. We are starting to get back feedback from our corporate office, and have heard positive things. Bonuses have come into the store (no I won't see them directly, life's not that good), and congratulatory notes are coming in as well. It is good to be recognized by the higher ups since the boss doesn't care.
I'm still sticking to my New Year's resolutions of being less judgemental of my co-workers (I said less, which means I can judge a little), although they try me, oh they try me. When I correct someone, I expect them to take heed of what I say; not do the same error three more times. With me correcting them again. Between each error.
With it slowing down, I've been able to get back into my workout routine. I'd love to be able to run in a 10K race. This is quite a challenge for me since (1) I find running to be one of the most boring sports ever invented and (2) I seem to have developed a sharp pain in my heel which flares up every time I try to run. We'll see how it goes. I'll have to find a race and sign up for it and then let you know. You will keep me accountable for my commitments. I'd be too embaressed not to follow through.

I used to get that heel pain when I walked the mail route. Remember a long time ago when I used to work? Try this: stand on some steps facing upstairs and let your heels hang over the edge. Lower your heels to stretch the Achilles tendon. Do that several times a day. It worked for me.

I actually have been doing that stretch for a long time now. I think it might be a bone spur.
