Thanks for the advice/comments about the clogged milk duct; it's good to know you guys are so invested in my boob's health!

And BTW, it cleared up just fine. I was kinda hoping there would be some kind of satisfying feeling like when you plunge a toilet and you hear that "thwop!" and then the water just drains away; instead, the pain and swelling decreased overnight, and then this morning as Norah was nursing, it just suddenly felt completely normal again. So, its un-clogging was rather anti-climatic.

So, with normal feeling boobs again, I think I will get a short run in this evening when I get home from work, and then tomorrow morning, I would like to do something long-ish. I was thinking 8-9 miles, but we'll see what the morning holds.

Also, I registered today for the Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving! I can't wait. I seriously love this race, and this will be my 5th year running it!

In general, I am SO looking forward to next week: Short work week, Jerry and I's anniversary on Wednesday, Turkey Trot and Thanksgiving on Thursday, and then on Friday, we plan to decorate the house for Christmas! Ack! So much to look forward to!

Glad you're feeling better. i remember those clogged ducts are quite painful. i mean, i'm told they are quite painful. a healthy check from the doctors appt is always a blessing too.

have a great weekend Jess!

Good news on the boob, even if it was anticlimactic. better than an explosion! :p

Sounds like fun stuff coming up!

Glad the boob got all worked out. You have fun week planned next week. I love this time of year - starts this Sunday with my favorite Turket Trot and goes through to New Years. And then bleak winter depression, but I'm not going there yet.

Glad the boob is back to normal - I bet Nora is secretly, too! :)
Isn't it funny how Turkey Trot's never fill up? You would think people would be all ove a little pre-Thanksgiving dinner exercise? Or is that just you and me? Hahaha!
Happy Anniversary a litle early! :)

The book was Killer Heat by Linda Fairstein. She writes murder mysteries that read like an episode of Law and Order SVU. So good! She uses continuing characters so I recommend starting at the beginning. I've read and enjoyed them all. They're aren't all that many and they're very fast reads.

Glad to hear the boob factory is up and running again smoothly. :)

P.S. I saw Karen yesterday and she sent a little outfit for Norah. Someone gave them a sleeper that is a little too girly for baby James! I'll give it to you guys on Thanksgiving.
