I am kind of freaked out though. I mean, I just finished week 2 of my real training and I thought I was going to die after 4 miles. I really am not sure about 5 this weekend. Or for that matter the entire 13.1 in 10 weeks. AHHHH. I have decided that my only real goal is to finish. If I finish, I'll be happy.
On another official note: the boy. Its official. Its over. Done and done. So done its not even worth writing the details. Of course if you really want them, you can ask and I'll probably tell you.
And my last official note: I officially have my own space in our new lab!!! A whole bench all to myself, and no more sharing a desk. For those of you unscientific people (which may be everyone who reads this) having your own lab bench is pretty huge. Ok, really its like a social status. No lab bench = poor. Sharing lab bench with other lab members = middle class. Very own, very long, very workable lab bench = high roller. Yep, I am officially a high roller. Well, in terms of lab space, but no need to get technical.

Pain in both sides of head = check
Mild to moderate pain, often pressing or tightening feeling = check, although its usually moderate to severe
Sensativity to light and sound = check, especially light
3 or more headaches a week = double check
Usually have to take greater than prescribed doses of pain killers = check (and it still doesn't work)
Yes, I am complaining, but I am so tired of my head hurting all the time. No relief. Hopefully the doctor can tell me something tomorrow. And then give me lots of drugs so I can have a good weekend!

Last night was one such stromy night. I went to bed early due to one serious headache that I could not beat. I woke up about midnight to bright flashes of light in my room...."ah just the storm" I though. And happily turned over to go back to sleep. Then all of a sudden there was a HUGE crashing sound. I seriously thought a tree had fallen into my room. I sat straight up in bed, wide eyed and realized there was no tree...thank goodness. But somewhere extremely close by lightening had touched down. Now this happens every so often but usually its just the one or two extremely loud ones. Last night, though, they just kept coming. I was kind of getting scared, but my headache finally won out and I fell back to sleep. I was worried that I would hear about some house having caught fire in the neighborhood last night, but thankfully, none did. And as far as I could tell, no trees were down this morning. Guess it was an all talk and no action kind of storm. Fine by me, but maybe tonight it could tone down the chatter. I need a good nights rest.

Side note: Stopped by a new coffee place this morning on my way to work. The coffee is AMAZING! We all know how I love my coffee and now I found a place that is actually really good in Memphis. Yay no more Starbucks!!

The owners are Mr. and Mrs. Dave Campo. Dave just happens to be a professional football coach. He has coached the Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaquars and a few others. He was with the Cowboys for 3 Superbowl wins.
He has been coaching the Jaquars, but just went back to the Cowboys. So I didn't actually get to meet him. But his wife was great. She wouldn't let us pay for anything. And Saturday (the day after the wedding) she took us to her private beach club. We spent the entire day there soaking up the gorgeous sun and hunting for shark teeth.
BUT the whole reason for the trip: Samantha and Tyler! I didn't get to actually go to the ceremony. They are mormon and I am not which means I was not allowed in the temple. But after, they had a cute little ring ceremony and reception. It was so good to see Sam, even if it was for such a short time. She looked like such a happy bride. Although I am pretty sure I saw her face turn 10 different shades of red when he took the garter off!!! She was soooo nervous for that night! I haven't gotten to talk to her but I hope that it was magical.
It was a good weekend. Scratch that, great weekend!!
