These Boots are Made for Walking (Slowly and Carefully)


Especially on hardwood floors. :) But aren't they cute?? They may be the nicest thing I've bought myself since the surgery. They fold and scrunch down to be cute and casual, or go (nearly) thigh-high for the ultimate bad girl look. I lurrve them. 'Course, I feel like a giant spotlight is on me when I wear them, and I'm not entirely ready for that. But I did wear them to work twice last week. Today, I am tired, and I wore my beaten-to-nuttin' Keens that are also filthy from mowing the wet grass this weekend. Today is not a stellar-sexy day in the office, haha, but yesterday I had fun with my one-woman fashion show.

'Twas a decent weekend at my house, although there wasn't a lot going on. My son had his last football game, in which they were beaten again, as was our tradition this season. However, it was a completely gripping game, and the boys wanted to win badly, and fought hard for it. It was so exciting! They could have won it, but happily, my son doesn't even seem to notice if they win or lose, he is out there fighting HARD and being satisfied with his effort. Gosh, he loves playing.

Last week, I was fairly good about doing my stairs - but what was remarkable was that I went down 20 flights after one run. OMG - 20 flights down uses completely different muscles than 20 flights up! We don't usually go down the stairs because it bothers my friend's knee. I have to tell you - it's been nearly a week since going down these stairs and my calves have still not recovered. Bizarre! That doesn't even seem like so many flights, but immediately after doing it, my legs were shaking like jello - thighs and calves. Now I am still using the walls to assist myself down the stairs at home, haha.

You know - I didn't actually have much to blog about this morning. :) You have probably sensed that already from this riveting post. I will end it here and swing back by when I got sumpin interesting to say. Have a great day!

  6. Julie, I posted this on my blog too, but wanted to make sure you see it.

    What are these compression tanks you speak of? I think I need one to help with my muffin top. And, I was wondering how your son is doing on his allergy free diet.
