That reminds me that I used

That reminds me that I used to save all of my veggie stuff and put it in the freezer to make stock from. That way I could collect enough to make a big pot and then condense it a bit and freeze it again if I wasn't going to use it right away. What a great idea to make stock!

Sorry to hear about the running. I gave it up a couple of seasons ago after my knees kept bugging me. You could bike to Vanier!

And I have unpurchased rodents in my house now and they're keeping me up at night, so I can relate to the sleepiness you're dealing with! Maybe I should borrow your cat :)

Oh, and meditation is supposed to stress you out. People think it's to make you feel calm and good, and that will come, but it's a good sign that it's causing some stress. Go figure!

Hey Megan, concerning the

Hey Megan, concerning the shins, I used to have shin splints when I started running. It drove me crazy as well. Barbara Rodwin from Back to Health Clinic (on Catherine) treated them. There are few stretches that can help you. As well, check out your shoes. It may be time for replacements or, perhaps, you need another type of shoe. Anyway, there are ways to get rid of shinsplints. There's hope!

Jamine - Yeah, it's totally

Jamine - Yeah, it's totally hard to shake that feeling that meditation is supposed to calm you, when really it's about paying attention to what's what, and sometimes that is dastardly uncomfortable, and trying to sit with it make me feel like I am running around in my brain scratching my eyes out. Fun times.

Martin - Aha! I do have a physio I saw for a while for something else. Good to know you got them treated. Maybe I'll get back out there yet.
