Changed my nail color

For about a month I've been sporting Bizarre Blurple by China Glaze, which was given to me by Sebastian, along with some glitter polish that I passed along to chocolate_frapp. The Blurple fit my winter gloom and in bar-light looked black, which gave me the appearance of an aging goth.

Since I went into another emotional down-turn about 3 hours and 45 minutes after going back to work on Tuesday, I've decided to try and at least do some "changing the outsides." I've now got OPI Red and it's definitely a more cheerful look.

I'll be seeing Sebastian tomorrow to get my ugly roots and gray strands eradicated. Hopefully a bit of sprucing up will help me get my shit together emotionally and otherwise.

Pyscho-sis is back in the hospital. She's had a couple of falls over the last few months and felt like they were sending her back home without good enough pain meds. She'd reached a point where she had to keep a commode chair by her bed because it was too painful to get to the bathroom. Now she's at General, which isn't a deluxe resort type facility, but at least there's someone taking care of her and she's definitely getting the good stuff for pain.

I went to see her today. Not sure I accomplished much, but when you're in a place like that you need to see a friendly face from time to time.

Today was another crap day at work---at least at the very end---I was trying to do too much and I may have caused a bigger problem. I did manage to ride the bike home and then get out the stability ball and foam roller for at least some minimal crunches and rolling.

The red is a lovely color, although the Blurple reminds me of your LJ layout, even though it's a rather different shade.

I'm glad that your sister is getting the care she needs. *hugs* I'm sure she appreciated your visit.

I did enjoy the Blurple for a while, but I really did need some kind of visual pick-me-up. I'm also considering changing the LJ layout, and possibly even my journal name. The Chelsea Drugstore was born out of my House love and we know what an ugly pile of crap that turned into.

Psycho-sis is my sister-in-law, not my sister.

I know your sister appreciated your visit.

What is wrong with her that she cannot get to the toilet,and all of the pain? I feel like I missed something.

Work those red nails, baby! Recently to cheer myself up, I had a pedicure and had my toenails painted bright turquoise. I love looking down at them--and my husband loves them! Who knew the man was into untraditional toenail polish?

Psycho-sis is my sister-in-law, NOT my sister. I'll do a clarification post about this, since it seems to be a common misconception.

Hubby honestly doesn't give much of a fig what I do to my nails as long as they can comfortably scratch his back.

I do understand the implications a relative with such problems may bring to our lives...there can be quieter times but you're never going to be be able to drop your guards, if you really care. . Not to tell in worse times

Please don't change your LJ name!!!!

I'd still be Karaokegal. I'm just not sure about The Chelsea Drugstore. My LJ just doesn't feel like that anymore.
