Man, it's been about a week since I blogged last. I've been doing some work, having fun, and spending time with people that matter to me. It's been a bit of a whirlwind but I feel as if sometimes everything in your life happens for a reason and you end up in just the right place at just the right time.

I did finally get my cast off on Monday!!! Woohoo!!! I'm SO happy about that! After not being able to put my foot on the ground for 6 weeks, it's amazing how such a relatively small action could bring me that much joy, lol, albeit in a boot. The boot itself makes me feel as if I'm about to walk on the moon but at this point I'd wear anything on my foot as long as I was able to weight bear again. I've been using both crutches for the past few days but today marked the first day where I could use one for the most part.

My scar doesn't look too bad either. It's pretty long, but all things considered, it's healing rather well, at least in my opinion.

I think with some Mederma and cocoa butter, it will hardly be visible by the time all is said and done.

I've been out to dinner a couple times at two great restaurants, one Italian and a steakhouse. On Wednesday, I did something that I've never done before, thanks to the generosity of a good friend of mine. My BFF Peggy and I were treated to a day at a spa. We went to this place called Burke Williams - the Torrance location. We had facials, massages and pedicures and it was AWESOME and I have soft skin and pretty pink toes to prove it:-) I had NO idea that I was missing such luxury and I, Ms. Low Maintenance, will definitely go back at some point.

I saw the movie Precious and now I understand what all the Oscar buzz is about. It was moving and funny and sad and powerful and touching and uplifting and emotional all at once. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and go see it.

I went to the bookstore and bought the Andre Agassi biography and am looking forward to reading it. Add to that a little shopping (bought a new pair of boots and a new purse), and a meeting for a new commercial interior design project that Urban Safari Design will be undertaking and this week has just flown by.

And I can't wait for the next one.....hope you all feel as blessed as I do.

I reeeeeeeally really really really want to see Precious but it isn't showing in my market... yet... I might have to wait for the DVD. I only saw Slumdog Millionaire for the first time a couple weeks ago on HBO!

Yay for getting your cast off!!

Mederma is an awesome product. Congrats on the cast removal. Were you scared to walk on it?

So glad to hear everything is going well.

Garrett: I was a little nervous at first just cause it had been sooo long but now i'm even doing a little walking without the boot on, just around my room. Making daily progress so that's good.

I have the Agassi book on my wish list. Didn't get it for my birthday on Sunday, but that's ok. I'll pick it up. (I also want "The Book of Basketall: The NBA According to The Sports Guy" and "When the Game was Ours," by Larry Bird.)I think Andre is my second all-time favorite tennis player, after my frat Arthur Ashe, and right before Bjorn Borg.

Nice scar, a badge of courage. I firmly believe that it's the little imperfections that create beauty.

Every girl should be as low-maintenance--high quality results as you.
