After my job was over, I stopped by a nail salon and got a mani and a pedi. As a big-time nail biter, I have to get manicures pretty often. Keeping my cuticles and nails trimmed is the only way I keep from gnawing them down to nothing. Gross habit, I know. Got a pretty baby pink on my fingers and toes. Makes me think of summer when I wear pink. Good thing number two.
I wore my disposable flip flops, that they give you after a pedi, to the grocery store. I was so happy because they had bunches of tulips marked down to $1. I bought the only two bunches left. Sometimes you can get great deals on flowers at the grocery store. I always check and once in a while I get lucky. Lucky good thing number three.
I've been wanting a new, bigger gym bag for a few weeks now. Jeff doesn't take a bag and so he always puts his stuff in mine. That causes my stuff to sink to the bottom and it was all just crammed in there. I didn't like that. And let's face it, I just wanted a new one.
So I went to my favorite Vera Bradley store and bought myself a new gym bag.
Isn't it pretty? Suz was on the phone with me and looking at all the patterns on her computer. I always have a hard time choosing a pattern. There are so many that I like. This one is called Cupcakes Pink. Are you sensing a pink trend here? I took it to the gym tonight and it held all of my stuff and Jeff's too, with room to spare. Love it . Good thing number four.
I checked the mailbox and yes, indeed, it was that time of the month. My new Southern Living was there to greet me. Looks like a good one, too. Good thing number five.
Even with my new gym bag, my body felt like Gumby after I took an interval class. I really wanted to stay and do the next class that works you out using a lot of weights. I tried. I failed. My endurance is down the toilet. My limp noodle arms just couldn't hold out. Oh, well. Maybe soon I'll be able to do two classes in a row. Maybe not. Good thing number six. I did do one class, remember????
I spent the entire day yesterday at the Henry Medical Center Emergency Room. My mother-in-law has been having awful back pain. She was in tears with it, so I strongly suggested (a/k/a forced) her to go. She has a bruised tailbone from a fall she had a couple of weeks ago and that's what's causing all her pain. After two powerful pain shots, her pain was finally down to a zero. I'm pretty sure that almost everybody in Henry County had an emergency yesterday. We were there from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. It's really nice to work with your sister because Suz covered my job for me so that I could stay there with her. Thanks, sista!
Well, I'm off to enjoy my new magazine. I can't think of a better way to end my very good day.
