My world has been very focused these days on moving to DC and all of the thoughts and worries that come with making a massive change in my life. I am trying to just take it one day at a time and checking things off of a list as I'm moving through my day. I'm also trying to live in the moment as I'm loving the time that I get to spend with my friends in NYC.
I was in DC this last week to look for a new home. I didn't tell any of my DC friends that I would be in town because I really didn't know what to expect during this process. I had done my homework before I arrived and I think I found a place but more on that when I finally sign a lease.
This was also the second week of wearing a special shoe on my right foot. I woke up over two weeks ago with an incredible pain in my right foot. I went to the podiatrist who informed me that I had irritated my metatarsals (toe bones). I don't know how this happened as I hadn't done anything out of the ordinary in the days leading to the injury. It's just one of those things that happen. Essentially I was told to rest and to wear my special shoe. I rested a lot and thank you Olympics for being on so I had something to occupy my mind.
Something wonderful happened this last week. I stayed in a very nice hotel and it had a great mini-bar. In between looking for my new home, I stayed in my very nice and quiet room and just relaxed while eating treats from the mini-bar. I have not felt this rested in such a long time. I was so grateful for the chance to get outside of myself and just stop worrying. The best part is that I didn't feel any guilt for not exercising or taking advantage of DC. My foot hurt and I'm moving to DC very soon.
I don't know if I'll ever have a hotelcation again but it's amazing how everything aligned to let this happen when I really needed it to happen.
