Hanging in there.

Have only been taking the Alli sporadically. Can't really say if it works or not because of that. I decided that since I have a history of crohn's that I'd do every other dose for a several days before I went for it completely. Tomorrow I shall try all 3 doses.
This week I should lose all this packing on my foot and swap it out for an ace bandage or coban that I do at home. YAY! A shower without wearing a huge plastic bag over my leg!!! Then, I'm probably about a week away from starting to work myself into shoes. I've been watching all these shoes like Trinny and Susannah and What Not To Wear and dying to wear cute shoes (or any shoes) again.
I did buy a really cute jacket for fall today. It's a lightweight fleece in a black and grey abstract pattern and ties with a belt instead of zipping. I was shopping for groceries at Meijer and it kinda jumped in the cart when I wasn't looking. LOL I desparately need new clothes though. I've sat on the couch all summer in gym shorts and tank tops. I threw most of my daily wear shirts in the rag bag last spring because they were a disaster. Somehow having 4 kids, including a toddler, seems to show up on MY shirts as much as theirs. How is that? i'm going to try to stretch it out a couple of more weeks until my foot can handle a serious shopping trip. (Also my birthday is 9/10 so I'm holding out for the birthday $$$$. )
