Conclusion of Supersized Weekend

Act 1:
Honestly, I don't recall very much of what I did yesterday. Must have been a good day!

Today I returned some stuff from my retail therapy binge, but purchased some other stuff in the process ($1.99 Simplicity pattern sale partially to blame). And I made my very first chiropractor appointment. And spa appointment for deep tissue massage. Sometimes I feel like I'm living someone else's life. I mean, for all of 2008 I went to the dentist, twice. No other doctors, because I had had my eye appt and physical in late 2007. And so far, in not even 6 months of 2009, I have had:
  • 7 visits to "urgent care"
  • 17 physical therapy visits
  • 1 dental checkup
  • 1 eye dr checkup
  • 1 orthopedic surgeon visit
  • 1 MRI experience
  • 1 x-ray (included with urgent care visit)
I have not seen bills for any of the above, yet. Doc visits are all covered, but the tests, therapy, etc...they're 90% covered and have deductibles.

Pain level is at 2/3 for back. I think it's doing really really well. Right knee is hurting again, but both knees are next on the list for "fixing". Plus a physical, another dental checkup, the eye dr dilation visit, etc.

Act 2:
Ah yes, I almost completed a bathrobe to match the nightgown yesterday. I want to make a nifty belt for it. I was hoping Joann's would have some white "rope" but I couldn't find it. So instead I will braid together some white cloth strips or twill tape or ribbon or something to make the belt. In the picture, the "belt" is just a piece of too-short twill tape (or something similar) that definitely wouldn't fit around my waist in real life. Also, I sewed the belt loops on about an inch too low, b/c the last bathrobe I made had the belt loops too high, and I mistakenly assumed they would be too high too for this one (nope).

New Bathrobe!!!

Back of new bathrobe!

Kinda has a New York Yankees vibe to me (even though, I know their uniforms are white with blue pinstriping).

Act 3:
How many blooms do you count (look carefully!)??? This is just one bush, by the way!!
Hibiscus in bloom!  How many blooms do you see??

I wish I had another day off but that's always how I feel when it comes to vacation--always wanting for another day!!!

  1. Wowwwww.... that is quite a score on the doctor/ health care practitioner visits. I fell for the Simplicity $1.99 sale, too, but only for 2706. Hope I can make that dress soon. I guess 6 blooms!
