Despite my cries of protest, it actually has helped to heal my foot much faster. My foot is less swollen and I can walk without my crutches and I am no longer wearing the air cast. I'm still limping a bit, but it's better everyday and I feel good about it. This week was week two of the acupressure and it was just as painful as the first time she did it.
Saturday arrives...quickly. Forty One. I am now completely over that big hill and yet I feel meh nothing really that bad about it. I got up at the crack of ass (6:35) for a 7 am hair appointment. I was hoping it was just a cut as I didn't sleep well so I wanted to go back to bed after the appointment, but low and behold it was a color and cut so I was there a lot longer than expected. But a nice cut and a nice shade of red later I'm all dolled up.
Okay I still went home and tried to go back to sleep but after laying there for a while I couldn't fall asleep. Went out to dinner with the folks and stopped at one of my favorite bakeries to pick up a lemon tartlet for my dessert. (although I still haven't eaten it). My mom bought dad some coconut macaroons so I grabbed a couple.
In the middle of the night SOMEONE got up, chewed through the Ziploc bag and had herself a coconut macaroon to get in on the celebration.

I'm feeling less anxious about things, I passed my background check for the job and so now I just gotta find myself a desk that will fit two monitors and just wait to start training. Yikes! A whole new world, and despite the pretty big pay-cut I am trying to think positively and say I'm going to rock the job so well I will make incentives every month.
The parents got me a gift of cash (the gift that keeps on giving) so I can use it to buy new tires for my inspection coming up this week. Gotta love it! What more can a girl ask for, for her birthday...TIRES!
