I have been needing some new capri pants since the weather is getting hotter down here in the South. I don't want to spend a lot of money on them because hopefully I won't be in them for long, so I had my chauffeur (aka Dad) take me to Walmart to see what they had. Before ya'll think I am spoiled or had my license revoked remember I can't drive because my cast is on my right foot!! Anyway......I found a pair of cute jean capris in a size smaller than what I am wearing now and decided to try them on. That was a bit of a fiasco!
I wheeled up to the fitting rooms and Earline the Walmart worker decides to "help" me in the handicap room. I tell her that I was ok to just leave the wheelchair outside and hop into a regular room. Earline did not take to kindly to that. She came behind me, commandeered command of the wheelchair and started to push me into the dressing room. I tried to stop her, but that 98 lb grandma was stronger than she looked. I knew that we were not going to make it and before I could get the words out she had rammed my cast covered foot into the wall. It didn't hurt, but I really was ready for Earline to give up control of the chair. Earline had a different idea. She kept trying to get that stupid wheelchair in the room. Finally I put the brakes on and stood up. She kind of looked at me like it was a miracle. I told her I just had surgery on the one foot and the other one worked just fine. I hopped my big butt in a room and tried on the capris. And you know what?! They fit!!! I am so excited!!
I can tell I am losing weight and my jeans that I am currently wearing now are really big. In fact my husband told me the other day that crack kills. I didn't get it at the time until I stood up and realized my jeans were half way down my butt. Thank goodness it was just him who saw!! I want to weigh myself so bad but am afraid to jump on my scale. I don't know how much my cast weighs and honestly I am not the most coordinated person. I am afraid I will get up there on one leg and fall over. Funny image but not something I want to try!!
I am trying to have a better attitude everyday that comes at me. Thank you to everyone for the encouragement and kind words.
