busy busy day

Phew! I feel like I've been running around all day - mom and I didn't even get home to take these pictures until around 9pm! Thank goodness for the long days and late sunsets of summer, otherwise I would have had to do inside pictures, which are not exactly my favorite... I wasn't actually wearing this outfit all day, but earlier in the day I was dressed for an internship interview, so I'd say this outfit is cuter :)

Another item I left at home this past year an rediscovered this summer: my purple, ikat-esque print skirt. I fell in love with it at the store, then when I brought it home decided it was a bit too bright for my taste. But lately I've been trying to wear more color, and this most definitely fits the bill. And the waist is great for tucking in shirts, a.k.a. my go-to outfit...

So it was a pretty busy day today, as I said yesterday. First in the morning was my dentist appointment. Don't you just hate the dentist? You just feel like a small child, having them brush and floss your teeth for you, accidentally dripping some of the water they give you to rinse your mouth (is that just me? hope not, now that I just admitted to it...) and, the yearly torture, x-rays. My mouth just isn't big enough for them! One piece of  good news though is that now that I've survived my childhood without any tooth decay and seem to be staying on that path, I don't need fluoride anymore! You know, that nasty, grainy stuff they paint on your teeth and expect you to keep there all day? Yeah, that stuff. Never again.

Then we went to my foot doctor appointment and I have to say, it went really well! My doctor says that in his 26 years of experience, he has never seen a patient with my level of damage (I think that I am only now beginning to understand how badly I hurt myself. Kind of glad I didn't really realize until after the fact, I was already hysterical enough ^^) have the range of motion and bone repair that I have. He really couldn't emphasize enough how happy he was with my recovery, and I am so happy! Apparently it will always be sore and stiff, but that it will improve over time - just not to the level of my right foot. But you know what, I'm starting to be more ok with that. I'm walking, and I'm able to walk more day after day. I'll take it.

Ok, trying not to get too long-winded in the description of my day. I also had an interview (I won't go into depth about how it went, don't want to jinx anything) and a pilates class with my mom (it was difficult. She's been doing pilates for over 2 years and, I'm sad to say, definitely beats me in the strength department). Then I got to see my old choir perform! It was my first time ever sitting in the audience watching them, and it was so much fun! I'm so proud of my girls (I still know most of them, with the exception of some new recruits), especially the first sopranos, who were absolutely amazing. They are going to rock Australia. Ok, enough gushing, time for sleeping. This post is going up past midnight, so I guess it's officially Thursday. Oops. Good night :)
