I Am Whole Again

Today I had a vacation day and I did absolutely nothing on the houses.

I woke up at my normal 5:00am and got on with the day. I had a list of errands that needed to be done and I have been putting them off forever because of work constraints and/or working on the houses.

I finally applied for my passport. Paid for and the processing has begun. The lead time is said to be 1-4 weeks with the normal being 2 weeks. I did not have another picture taken. The passport photo shows me with long curly hair. Not the "Bozo the clown" effect I have now. I also have a racing stripe where the hair has grown out with my silvery halo in all its glory.

Next up was a race to Wally World for foam painting rollers, Orange Glo, and all sorts of other stuff that just happened to fall into my basket. New jammies, Summer weight, a new pair of shorts, three new blouses at 1/2 off. I bought the same blouse two weeks ago in a different color for full price.

I then raced to the mall and ran into Dillards. I have two pairs of shoes right now. Work shoes, Clark mules that are falling apart and a pair of flip flops. Both pairs have seen much better days and I used today to get new shoes. I bought two pair. Both on sale. Both really cute. It took a little longer than anticipated because I didn't have my charge card and none of the info I gave seemed to match what the store had on record. The sales associate called the info in and the guy on the other side of the line started off by thanking me for being a loyal customer since 1993. Yeah, yeah, cut to the chase and let me get off and running. I finished the purchase and also changed the mailing address so the wonderful and talented Spousal Unit can pay the bill. Isn't he great?

Next off was Kohl's. I have been losing a lot of weight and my pants are literally falling off me. I am down two sizes and needed a couple of pairs that are acceptable for work.

After that I went to the insurance office and paid for the new policy for the houses. We were dropped by our former insurance for the pool and the fact that we do not now have a primary residence. I set up an automatic payment and off I went.........

To my nail appointment. My lovely nail appointment.

I had to cancel it this past Tuesday because I got heat sickness. I will spare you the gory details but it wasn't pretty.

My one vanity. My nails. They are back to being gorgeous.

I am whole again.
