Silver Lining

I tried to think of one positive thing I could write about today and my toenails came to mind.  I painted them on Saturday when I had a rare burst of energy.  I bought the brightest color polish I could find in honor of my upcoming (and soon to be missed?) half-marathon.  So, although a couple of my toenails are horribly discolored from running and I am indeed about to lose one, they sure are pink, aren't they?  I have had a lot of time to look at them in the last 3 days that I have spent in bed.  

I am dressed for work and will wait until 7:30 when something will be posted to the internet to see if I need to go to work or not.  I am extremely hopeful that at 7:30 a.m. I will be able to take off my suit, put on my jammies, and go back to bed.  

I am sure I feel better than yesterday, but I am still not well - at all.  I even missed Biblical School last night.  I don't think it is very nice to go out in public when you are a regular snot factory.  

The half marathon on Sunday?  I have no idea how on earth I can be well enough by Sunday to do that, but I will keep praying and hope for the best.  I will go to Arizona anyway, because I want to see some palm trees - and I have already paid for the trip.

Get better.

I just ache for you and the disappointment you are having to deal with. I'm so sorry sugar.

Snot machines generally aren't pretty, but Arizona is!

Those toenails make up for what is happening with the snot. Hope that you get the day off--due to snow??

why are your toenails turning? does this happen even when your shoes are a whole size larger than normal?

also, hope you feel better soon. :)

Glad you are feeling better. The dry air of Arizona might be just the ticket you need.

Lou said...

I'm hoping for the best. I really want to hear about the route you run!

What a great color!!

I sure wish you would feel better soon - but everything takes time, so rest and sleep and chicken soup, wash, rinse and repeat!

Your toenails are the color of Anna's helmet, scarf, gloves, and leatherette jacket--guess her toenails are next.
