I'm Wearing Shoes!

Yippee! Today I am wearing a pair of shoes for the first time since the surgery. My right foot is still somewhat swollen, but improving. Since it was ever-so-slightly chilly out this morning as we headed to watch Maya play soccer, I decided I wanted shoes AND socks on. So I rummaged around and found an old pair of tennis shoes that actually were in my give-away pile because they are a bit wide and worn. However -- with very loose lacing on the right foot, I am wearing SHOES. I am thrilled.

Good thing I'm easily pleased, right?
**Disclaimer - not my shoes and not my feet. My shoes are much older and more beat up (although they are the same brand - I love Mizunos), and my right foot is much fatter than that one.

Yay for shoes! I'm glad you're nearly back to normal, I can't imagine the pain it must be. My mom might be experiencing the same thing soon...

I was totally going to comment on how good those shoes looked and that they shouldn't be in the give away pile! Thanks for the disclaimer! :) Glad you're on the road back to normal. You'll be wearing your trendy shoes in no time!

Who would've thought that wearing shoes could be such a joy! I guess we take for granted those everyday things...so glad you're back to wearing 2 shoes!
