Today J-Mom and I made up for our previous lack of shopping. Mike was home from doing his radio show by 1:30 and we were off. No shoe store was safe. We tirelessly hunted a specific chocolate brown blouse for J-Mom. We bargain shopped and we argued about the way pants should fit. We shopped. We did not rest until hours and hours of quality shopping were had and then we collapsed into a booth at Chili's for dinner. It was 9 by then, but stopping any sooner would have been unthinkable. It was that kind of day.
I got a couple of pairs of cute, cheap shorts. Yeah. Cheap shorts. I'm having some veins in my legs 'collapsed' on Monday and will be sitting around with my feet up for a few days next week. Cute, cheap shorts were in order. Shoes were not, but of course it was fun to look.
I have those bumpy varicose veins that sometimes come after pregnancies. So I went to see about getting them 'lasered.' That sounded so easy and painless and high tech and as simple as a manicure on the commercial. Why not? So I went to see the doctor. He reminded me so much of Steve Irwin, it was eerie.
Not his mannerisms or anything. He wasn't bodyslamming me to the examining table and yelling "By Crikey, those are some beautiful veins." But he really does look like the guy. Anyway.
I'm not getting lasered. Dr. Crocodile said that we can go more conservative and just fill my veins with foam. Um. Gross. That's better than laser? And somehow the answer was yes.
And that's why I bought cheap shorts, not that you asked, and not that this is even why I'm blogging right now but I got distracted and so oops. sorry.
This was supposed to be about THIS!
