Today has been a blast. A local salon donated their services for the morning and invited the women in the Fisher House to a day of pampering. I got a cut, color, and manicure. The highlights are a nice addition and my hair has been chopped short. It's odd to not have long hair but it will be so nice to just blow dry it and run in the morning. I'll be interested in J.R.'s reaction when he wakes up and actually looks at my hair. It may be very entertaining.
I also had a chance to get a pedicure but I had to turn that down. I killed my feet yesterday. We were invited to have lunch with Congressman Ron Kind at the capital building. I threw on a dress and my new black heals. After driving around all over downtown it became very clear that we were not going to be able to park anywhere near the Capital. We ended up seven blocks away. SEVEN. Now I understand I should have brought other shoes, but the matching purse is super little and I would have had no where to put them. So... I ran to keep up with J.R. in my three inch stilettos. So stupid. I have blisters all over my feet. I even have one on the bottom of my toe! Dumb, dumb, dumb. At least my feet looked good and lunch was fantastic. We were unfortunately very late so we did not get to spend much time with Congressman Kind. It was still wonderful to chit chat with him for a while. He is so down to earth. I'd make time for him in my schedule any day.
The rest of the day is filled with little projects. Phone calls to make, cleaning to be done. All and all it is a good day.
