Play Day

Rick and the kids come home tonight. I am so excited! Rick called yesterday morning to try to let me hear music from Its A Small World, my favorite ride and a special part of our dating story.

Yesterday my mom and I enjoyed 6 hours out shopping, mostly at consignment stores, our favorite. We were afraid we would get kicked out of multiple fitting rooms for our hysterical fits of laughter when I got stuck in clothing I was trying on and couldn't figure out how to get them back off with a dead left arm. (I did not buy any outfits that "trapped" me no matter how nice they looked on!)

I did spend about an hour in a wheelchair, and there were other times sitting for lunch and in the car, but otherwise I spent lots of five hours on my feet with the walker. I told my mom I had to make up for all those months I wasn't able to shop! I got several long skirts, a shirt, a couple of longer winter-style dresses (it was 70 yesterday, but I'm sure we will have snow in April), an adorable set of Disney overalls, and some cute hats. Thank you for the fun play day, Mom!

I'll have to do a separate post on my hats someday. Love them, and they give me more peace about my short hair. It has to do with a Bible verse God showed me last year, and a personal conviction (I hesitated to share publicly for over a year because I don't want anyone else tied by what's it has taken me nearly 40 years to feel convicted about). I have a sweet friend who know how much my hair upsets me and she's encouraging me to buy a wig, but I think I've decided to just stick with hats and wait for my hair to grow again.

This morning my circulation seems to be better as I woke up to find my left foot isn't purple like it usually is in the morning. I guess it liked all that time upright yesterday! This morning we are going to pick up a few things at Wal Mart then go to my Mom's choir practice this afternoon. I kept busy and survived another week!

I love hats! I wish they would come back in 'vogue.' I am interested in your personal conviction, but most of all I am thankful you are enjoying your hats and they make you feel better :)
