Driving Miss Sandy!

I drove to work yesterday -- the first time in 4 weeks! Oh joy! Oh Bliss!
But my driving required the perfect boot -- it had to be lightweight as well as adjustable in order to fit my still slightly-sausage-like toes and my fat ankle; and most importantly, they had to be STYLIN! So what did I come up with?
My daughter's old converse sneaker --
Or as we used to call them in Newfoundland in the 60's -
Dash Get-Aways!
STYLIN' fo shor!
Note the skull shoe-lace and the red wooly sock (festive as well as warm on my tootsies).

But that's only my injured foot. Alas, my left foot must be much more functional therefore less stylin'.
My foot didn't complain too much after the driving -- just a funny sort-of heavy pins and needles sensation from the nerves waking up. And I took off my new stylin boot when I got to work and put my foot up until I was ready to go home.
And when I got home (safely and without running into anyone else on the road), I was so pumped that I decided to bake cookies. Peanut butter oatmeal with chocolate and butterscotch chips.Reward for a hard day's work.
Phew! I was tired after all that!

But how encouraging for me! I'm feeling like there may be an end to this foot purgatory. Still, I'll not push the envelope too far this weekend. My foot will mostly be found in a supine position until Monday.
My stylin' boot is at the ready!

A girl just had to do what a girl has to and you did just fine with that very stylish boot there. I bet it did feel good to be able to do something for yourself. Remembering not to overdo now will be the hard part. Have a wonderful Saturday!

I am so glad that you were able to drive yourself to work. It's amazing how restricted we feel when we can't do something we were always able to do. My kids had those same "stylin" shoes back in the 80's. One of them even had a RED pair! Take good care- Diana

Come on Eva! I made them yesterday; do you really think there are any left? I live with teenage seagulls!

I'm glad you're healing; being handicapped even temporarly is hard.

It's a good thing that you didn't run into anyone, they'd have thought your were bonkers!
Love the look. You may start a trend.

Glad your foot is getting better!
Now put it up!
