Another 'Pines Day has arrived. Yes, it is nearing the official midway point of the week and the weekend is just around the corner. Yesterday was quite the adventure. Someone had dropped a "suspicious package" at one of the main bus stops, which is one over from where I work. Anyway, they had to divert traffic from this spot. On top of this, it was also snowing pretty well. In the end, it took me about an hour and a half to get home from work. Normally, it is only a 15 minute trip. Frustrating. But something good came from the delay!

As we were slowly moving along with traffic, I noticed two Christmas-style guard figures (not Nutcrackers) standing outside a store. Then, between them there was a wreath on the door that said "Merry Christmas!" Could it be? Then I looked up at the signage and read "Tinseltown." Yes. Ottawa now has a year-round Christmas store! I wanted to exit the bus immediately. Tinseltown was calling my name! I cannot believe that I did not know of this store's existence until yesterday. After doing some research, I have discovered that it opened quite recently (sometime last year). I informed Kim of my discovery and we agreed that we must go very shortly. I think I may need a little Christmas (store) fix.

My plans were a little messed up with my delay yesterday, so I could only do my 40 minute run at the gym. It was boring as usual. Still, it is decent rehab for my knee. I have another appointment tomorrow. It could be my final appointment, or my doctor could also recommend I get a $500 PRP Injection, which could have me healed in a just over a month if it works... The only real problem is that $500 is a lot to come out of my pocket. Still, it is mighty worth it if it works. We shall see.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great 'Pines Day! Carl has the place looking great.
Isn't it great that when you are forced to slow down in life that something amazing happens?!

500 bucks is a lot! I hope you are able to get that injection and heal quickly!
