Morning Meanderings… When life gives you lemons, get a pedicure and half a mani ;)

Good morning!  A little short on time this morning so I will get right to the point 😛

Yesterday I had my third doctor appointment for my hand.  I was again hopeful for a smaller cast…

and I was again denied.

In fact I found out yesterday that while I am healing well (yay super powers!!!) I do have to wear this cast for another 4 weeks.

Stupid, faulty, super powers.  😯


Not one to remain down in spirits (that really is a downer…) I went into our local nail shop.  The guy asked me how can I help you and I responded, “I would like a pedicure and half a manicure.”

When he looked at me I held up my hands.

So that is what I did. 

I snuch a pick of my hand when the doctor removed my old cast yesterday

  1. Cute, Sheila! That’s a new twist to the “when life gives you lemons” saga. I like it!

    • LOL – it was fun, and relaxing. Actually the best part was the hand massage. My right hand also hit the ground and is severely bruised on the palm… the massage really took the tension out and it does not seem to ache as much.

  2. You’re so funny, Sheila! Did you get your manicure for half price? You may not have a smaller cast but at least you know you’re healing well and your manicure and pedicure look great.

  3. I’m with Barbara! Was that manicure half price? Even if not, though, I bet it made you feel a whole lot better, so it was probably worth it. 🙂

  4. Awww that is so cute! Great idea as a pick-me-up 🙂

  5. Cute!!! Good for you. You deserve a treat. How is it working with a cast on one hand? Hope the next four weeks fly by for you.

  6. You’re thumb probably feels quite special. 😉

  7. What a great attitude! I’m glad to see you’re healing well.

  8. I LOVE that they gave you a manicure on your thumb!!! That is so awesome! 😀

    I admit, other than my fish pedicure, I’ve never had a manicure OR a pedicure before…

  9. Haha, that’s amazing! You’re so optimistic and inspirational! It’s so amazing when a person is able to make the best out of every situation.

  10. Sheila, I say to you, “You’re a girl after my own heart!”. Love me my pedicures. Nice pink by the way. Think I’ll get that next. Beautiful manicure on the right and the left thumb. Just perfect!

  11. You have such a great attitude Sheila! I can just imagine you asking for half a manicure haha.

  12. What a fab idea! They look great 🙂

  13. It’s great that you found some way to relax and make your hand look spectacular. 🙂

  14. What a wonderful attitude. I hope some of it rubs off on me as I’ve made a very sour lemonade out of the lemons the last couple days handed me. (see my Tuesday post Coffee Stained Rainbow) and I would blush to compare my lemons to yours. I hadn’t been keeping up with the blogs so I didn’t know you had a cast until today and I had to read your blog backwards until I found out exactly what happened. .yikes!
