Oh, what a day. Can I say that again? Oh, what a day. My massage was dreamy. Perfecto. Next up: haircolor. I'm now darker and redder, and I think I like it. I didn't like what I had before, so I went with my hairdresser's recommendation. It's still demi-permanent. Yes, I'm a hairdresser who's afraid to take the permanent plunge. Once you do it, it's forever, and so far I just have strands of gray here and there. I got my mom's good genes. Next up...the cosmetic injections. I was nervous. I took Tylenol. I had the numbing cream on for 30 minutes. I can't say it didn't hurt. It did. You know what they say about suffering for beauty. Linda, the PA doing the procedure, was thrilled with my results. So was the rep who watched and gave advice from time to time, and Linda's husband, who's a physician. They were amazed with the difference. My 'crack' is completely gone. A 'crack' on my chin is gone. The folds from my nose to mouth are gone. I'm slightly bruised, and swollen, and I have a headache. I should be using an ice pack right now, and I will in a minute. I just took more Tylenol. And I'm ready for bed. I'll give you an update in a few days. I'm really excited.

Emily's game against their rivals was edge-of-your-seat exciting. It was the best game I've seen. Remember...her JV team never scored. I'm used to watching games played near the opponents goal. Our girls were relentless. They won, 1-0 in double overtime, with a penalty shot. They deserved the win, and it was their second one this week. Go Mustangs! They took the bus back to school, and went to the boy's varsity soccer game. I just got the pick-up call, so, I'm off. And I'm hitting the bed the minute I get back.

Was it botox this time or one of the newer ones? I'm pea green with envy!

I'm dying to see how you look, too---be sure and post a pic soon!

Isn't watching your kid play sports one of the best "mom" jobs, ever?

Hugs.

Congratulations to Em and her team. Way to go!!

Glad you had such a great day.

Great weather we're having today!! In answer to your question. I walked from 6:45 until 8:30. I walked 6.7 miles!

I never thought I'd want a cosmetic procedure until a faint line between my nose and mouth suddenly got a lot deeper. Now, I can't help but look at it every time I glance in a mirror!

Ooooo, how exciting! I can't wait to see your hair color and results of your procedure!! So I do hope you're going to post photos soon!! I love your sense of adventure!!!

I'd love to have some cosmetic procedures but I can't help being a bit shy about the whole thing. I'm too old to start that now anyway. It's so good that you young ladies have the option though.

It's so good to see Em is participating in sports. Being part of an active team leaves less time for less desirable activities.

Everyone all together... "Mary you are NOT too old!"

Mary said...

Oh, Summer, a cosmetic procedure wouldn't do much for me - I'd have to plastered and sanded. I've lost 45 lounds and look like the saggy baggy elephant. This last 5 pounds just sorta slipped away - I didn't intend to it.

Mary said...

Summer, I want to add that your comment made me feel good. Tell me again sometime.

Cheryl said...

Mary, you are NOT old. We're all just getting older. And congrats on your weight loss. That's a very big deal!
