As you know, I’ve been spending my summer with “the boot.”
Today, I’ve been a bit reflective of all the summer fun my companion and I have experienced in the last three weeks. I guess I’m feeling nostalgic since “the boot” will likely become a thing of my past at the end of this week. -No offense to my friend, the boot, but I am slightly excited to be without her for the remaining month of the summer.
In her honor, I’m reflecting on a few of our summer activities. Let’s see, the picture to the right there is of the boot and me resting after helping concrete the stones in the front yard into a walkway. That was a tough day. PHEW!
The picture to the left is of the boot resting in the airport. We did a lot of traveling together. I will say one thing in gratitude to the boot. It is so nice to be able to ride those assistance vehicles around the airport and to board the planes with the first group of passengers- you know even before 1st class. It’s when they say, “Folks traveling with small children or who need additional time.” I never knew how nice that perk was! Almost makes me want to keep the boot for future travels… well, almost!
Now the boot and I have also been to a pool party and the water park. I am quite sad I did not get pictures of those occasions- well, I have pictures of everyone else… don’t tell the boot.
Oh, here we are at my brother’s 50th birthday party. My brother has been wearing Converse shoes, well since he came from the womb. So we all wore them to the party in his honor. I bought a pair especially for the party. Too bad I couldn’t get a discount- I mean I only needed one!
We’ve done a lot together in our short 4 weeks: concrete sidewalks, pool party, waterpark, Fun Wharehouse (I didn’t skate, of course), Harry Potter movie, travels, cookouts, restaurants, even daily errands are quite the activity when you’re wearing a boot! I hope my companion won’t be mad with me if I rejoice when it goes in the closet with another appliance I was glad to be rid of- the back brace used after my surgery.
I’ll suppose I’ll cross that bridge on Friday when I revisit the doctor. Hopefully he’ll say, “You’re done. Remove the boot.” Y’all don’t tell him all the things we’ve been doing- he might not want to break up this partnership if he hears!
