Returned previously bought shoes and got more solid and comfortable ones. And that’s about it this past week. Winter isn’t here yet, not really. Work is still recovering from December. Did have a big gyoza dinner with folk this past Saturday. Fighting off cold bugs with wheat grass juice.

This coming weekend is DeCon, an adult relaxicon, where I’ll be hanging out and helping to throw parties. Possibly playing board games. Mostly, though, relaxing. 🙂

Did go to the doc again, added another pill back. Didn’t want to do that, but I’m not sticking with my diet, and my wrist and elbow have lost a lot of range of motion. Tired of it. Just tired. So we’ll see if this helps or not.

28 Steps and a New Pair of Shoes January 5, 2012

So, the escalators have been down all week at work. There are 28 steps between the first floor and the second floor, I counted on about the tenth trip up. Down isn’t bad at all, but working the information desk all week has put me up those steps so many times. Though our General Manager has a point, our butts will be nice and toned by the time they’re fixed.

Unfortunately, to make matters worse, I also did a rush job of buying new shoes on Monday. And got shoes that squeeze my feet just below the toes. I have to take them back, but until then, I’m working with numb pinkie toes and some serious discomfort in my left foot. Lessons learned… even if I don’t like shoe shopping, I should take more time to do it.

Had a good New Year’s Eve partying with friends and then have a nice relaxed evening on New Year’s Day with some same and some other friends. 2012 is starting out well, with plans not only being made, but set into motion. As with every year, we are determined to make this one better than the last.

Struggling to eat properly. It’s winter and I want warm comfort food, not raw salads. Fresh veggies to cook are also harder to find in good quality. I need new and exciting recipes or something. Hours are going to start dropping at the store soon, so that might give me more time to make proper food choices.

One Week To Go December 15, 2011

Just over a week until Christmas. The store is busy, but I don’t work the evenings, so I don’t see the crazy. And I don’t have to work this coming weekend either – busiest weekend of the year.  So, I’m excited about that, too. I do have a forty hour week next week, including Christmas Eve, but hey. Can’t have everything.

I saw an article in the newspapers I put out today about some churches not having services on Christmas Sunday because “people don’t want to be in church on Christmas.” Now, much to Mom’s lament, I am no longer a regular church attender, but for those that are, this seems a ridiculous sentiment. In fact, before I read this headline, I was considering doing just that on Christmas morning. It’s Christmas… I mean, I suppose, folk’ll go to Christmas Eve services the night before, and once in a weekend is enough for s, buomet to not have services on a Sunday, because it is Christmas, just seems a little bit backwards to me.

Okay, enough ranting, back to your regularly scheduled commercialization of Christmas… So far, I’ve bought clothes with Christmas gift money. Pants, gloves, hat and socks. If I’m lucky, I’ll also manage new shoes. On the topic of pants, I don’t understand my body, and I wonder if I’m just odd or if other women have this problem. I tried to go thrifting, but after two runs through the racks for three different sizes, I gave up and went to Meijer where sizes are easier to come by. I have always felt my upper body is too small for my lower body and pants shopping proved it. I could not find a pair of pants big enough for my thighs and hips, and yet small enough for my waist. I did the best I could, but I still need to find a good belt that doesn’t pinch my belly. Maybe that’s what I’ll do with the little bit still left.

First holiday potluck of the season tonight, I should get ready and head out to that. Have a safe and happy holiday season all the way through to the New Year.
