Monday 25th - Pedicure day!

Today is the day that Tracy and I go get our fancy pedicures. I typically just go to the little strip mall places to get my pedicures - it's cheap, quick and they do a decent job. But, my dad and Sue bought me a gift certificate for The Sanctuary SalonSpa in Eden Prairie so I could go get a good pedicure. It turned out that Tracy had a gift certificate for the same place so we put our heads together and determined this would be a great opportunity for us to get together with no babies. Tracy has a 5 month old and an almost three year old - both girls - she is a SAHM so it's key for her to be able to get out of the house every now and then.
We made these appts a week ago so I have been looking forward to this for some time - I have not had a pedicure since Zoe was like three months old - that is way too long to go without one! My feet were literally screaming at me!
The pedicures were divine and it was so nice to sit and chat with Tracy. We didn't have to stop to feed anyone, hold anyone or get anyone a snack - it was great! We have decided that we need to make these types of things a more regular part of our routine! So looking forward to it!

After my pedicure I had a message from Missy with an update on Jarrod. They had been at the hospital and Jarrod was actually awake - still heavily sedated but awake. He had his eyes open and he could answer yes or now questions with a nod - but since he still is on the ventilator he obviously still can't talk. She did say that they have cut his dialysis down to every other day - that is such great news! And he did start to get a little agitated and tried to start breathing on his own - even though they don't want him to do this the nurse said it was good because it showed that he was aware of his surroundings, etc. I have to get to the hospital this week - I haven't been in quite a few days - I need to get there!
