And let me tell you, that it was quite the opposite of yesterday! There was a complete 180.
First of all what helped was that yesterday I purchased a new foot wrap, and it allowed me to put on a pair of sneakers today. It's much tighter than the Ace bandage, and less bulky... I then pulled out all of my shoes from my closet and began seeing if I could find at least one that I could fit into. I DID!!!!!! I was so excited!!! So today I drove to the mall armed with my new wrap, and wearing tennis shoes and with a whole new attitude!!
I found 3 pairs of shoes! One acceptable for church and the other two nice to wear everyday, and will showcase my few pairs of hand knit socks. To fill in until I can knit more socks, I splurged and bought a few cute socks as I shopped. I found Merino Wool socks at Tar-Zay, of all places. Shock!! Who would have thought?!
I also had a very nice lunch at Panera Bread. I ate my usual, as I never tire of it. Half Chicken Frontegra and half Fuji Apple salad, with an apple. Yum-O!!
Then I ran to the grocery store for some chicken for dinner tonight. I'm cooking!!! It's been awhile because if my foot.
We have a whole new mama in the house. I guess flopping around in slippers this past week, and imagining that I would forever be wearing them, depressed me a bit. I walked better today, and I bet you no one could tell that I was wearing a brace at all. I know that my foot felt so much better, so much steadier from wearing good shoes. I did have to rip the wrap off just now because with all the walking I did today, my foot began to swell. But I am off my foot for the rest of the day... promise!! As soon as I pick up the kids.
Oh Happy Day!!!
