Purple Toes

We woke up to sunshine today!

Dave's dad drove up from Northern Cal on Friday night and we went to the airport and changed Annie's rental car into my name. They got up this morning and headed home a day early in hopes of missing the big storm coming into town. They did so much for me while I was here and took such good care of me that I was sad to see them go but glad to have some alone time all to myself and my thoughts.

I cleaned up around here and did some laundry and then I hit the workout room and walked on the treadmill for 50 minutes as I watched TV. In the process I got hooked on the movie "Never Been Kissed" with Drew Barrymore. So I came back to my room and continued watching it as I had lunch. I took a long, hot bath and headed out to the store.

I went to Wild Oats/Whole Foods and picked up some things and had a juice from the juice bar. I wish our Whole Foods had one of those. I stopped at Walgreens to get a few things and thought I'd pick up some things to give myself a pedicure. After adding up the costs of the supplies in my head, I thought that I might just go get a pedicure at a salon instead. I found a little hole in the wall salon in a strip mall on my way home and went in to see if they took walk-ins. She told me to come back in 30 minutes. So I did! I sat there and she gave me a pedicure while I read trashy magazines. She asked me to choose a color so I chose purple. Afterall, purple is the color of hope. I can use some hope. So now I have soft feet with purple toes! It's kind of like a superpower. :)

So back to the hotel I went, purple toes and all. I made myself dinner and talked on the phone and read a little bit and now I'm going to watch a movie I rented from downstairs. Tomorrow is another day to myself.

My friend Shanna from California is flying into town Tues-Fri and my family might come Fri-Sun and then Paris is due Tues - Sat and then we fly home together Feb. 9th. Time is going a lot faster than I thought it would! I really need to get busy and get some things done before it's time to go home.

I miss everyone and again, Thank you to everyone for all that you've done.
Love ya.

Purple toes are cool... that is the color that Natalie chose when she had her birthday pedicure :) I'm glad you had a nice, relaxing day... just what the doctor ordered. Can't wait to check out that Wild Oats store and to cook for you. That will rock. See you soon. Love, P

Hi Shauna: Great idea of the pedicure. How long has it been since you have been able to think about just yourself?! You deserve some "me" time. Glad things are going well for you. I sent a mini update to some of the support group gals since I know they have been wondering how you are doing. Soak up that sunshine...the vitamin D is good for you! Looking forward to your next blog. Love, JO

Thinking of you!

Thinking of you and your purple toes! Get some rest before your guests arrive. Give Shanna a great big hug for me.
