More pain

Shinsplints are back and they brought reinforcements. Holy ow cow it hurt tonight. They started tingling last Thursday at boxercise. Then on Monday I warmed up on the treadmill at the gym, which really brought it on bad, bad enough that I was hobbling for most of Tuesday.

Wednesday I wised up and warmed up with the rower/exercise bike, and today I thought I'd risk boxercise again to see how I fared (sp?). Not good. I went super easy on them and it just made them worse.

Should have been icing them up during the week; it was the first thing I did when I got home and thats made a huge difference. Hopefully I'll be able to walk normally tomorrow.

In other news we've got our fingers crossed on one possible rental. I talked to the agent today and she's going crazy trying to contact the owner - who is overseas. So we're going to apply for a few more in the meantime. Plus the bosses at work are trying to help us out by abusing all their contacts (they have plenty amongst the real estate people in Mackay apparently)

Oh you know what else? I promised Jess I'd put up the text of our vows for our wedding last month. So for those that want to cry like a baby again, please go ahead and click the link below:

On our wedding day, I made a choice. It was the most important and significant choice of my life and I made it only after a great deal of consideration. On that day, I chose you, Jessica, to be my wife. I thought then that such a decision, once made, is final and irrevocable.

Now I know that the selection of a life partner is not a one-time decision but an on-going process. I have become keenly aware that a marriage lasts only so long as both partners desire each other above all others.

I elect to stay with you not because I feel obligated to your needs but because you continue to meet mine. I live with you not because a legal document says that I am your husband but because, in my heart of hearts, I still want to be by your side more than I want to be anywhere else.

Jessica, I come to you today as your best friend, as your lover, but most of all as your partner in life. I am here to honour and renew the commitment I made to you then: to stand shoulder to shoulder with you to meet life's challenges. To be there when you are sick, to support you when you are down, and to cheer you on as you achieve your dreams.

I will continue to love you as I have loved you in our first year of marriage. I will continue to learn and grow with you throughout our life together, and continue to respect your fierce independence as you have mine.

Jessica, I love you. Will you accept my vow to you today?

Stephen, when we began dating three years ago, we based our relationship on sold values: love, respect, friendship, and a commitment to always be honest with each other.

Over that time, the obstacles we faced have only served to deepen our love and strengthen our friendship. We have learned how to meet our problems with maturity and work through them together, no matter how difficult it may be.

When we got married last year, I stood by your side and vowed to love, honor and respect you, and only you, for as long as we both lived. Today, I want to renew that vow, with our family and friends as witnesses.

Stephen, I love you. You've seen me at my best and at my absolute worst. You have stood with me during the happy times as well as the painful times. You have taken care of me when I couldn't take care of myself. And you have never pulled away from me in search of an easier relationship.

Today, this is my vow to you: I promise to share my life with you, all of it, the good and the bad. I promise to celebreate with you during the happy times, and to stand by you when times are hard. I promise to take care of you when you can't take care of yourself. I promise to be your wife and your best friend for the rest of our lives.

I did want to post Paris' epic poem he read out during the ceremony, but I can't find my copy of it. I'll find it tomorrow morning and post it then, its a nice summary of our relationship (myself and Jess).
