We’re on Day 18 of this month-long challenge of writing something everyday. But I have a little secret to tell you:
Though after this past week of excitement, I certainly appreciated the downtime of the weekend. What did I do? Well, I returned a pair of red patent leather flats that I bought last weekend at DSW and exchanged them for a larger size and then returned a pink sweater from Old Navy and bought a pair of green leather loafers from Nine West that were on sale. On Saturday, I spent a couple hours at the mall, trying to get ideas for Christmas presents. Unfortunately, my parents are now using this blog to check in on me so I can’t bounce off any ideas. I also bought couple button-down blouses from Banana Republic, even though they weren’t on sale because I’m one of those girls who has a very difficult time with those kinds of tops (ladies, you know what I mean…).
Last night I chilled out at home, cleaned my room, watched some TV and worked on a couple of freelance projects.
Then today, I slept in ridiculously late, went grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s, picked up my new, enlarged prescription of insulin from CVS. Somehow the insurance company came under the assumption that I only need five bottles of insulin to last me three months. When I lived in Oregon, I received three bottles once a month. I have no idea how the messages got mixed about but I was literally running out of insulin last week. Yeah, try going through World Diabetes Day knowing you have three and half days of insulin left… kinda puts things into a unique perspective. Anyway, made a couple of phone calls to my doctor and she called in a new prescription on Tuesday for nine bottles of insulin (or 3 bottles a month). Picked up one bottle on Wednesday, and then the rest today. I have one bottle of insulin at work, and I have 8 bottles of insulin sitting in my fridge. With all these bottles at once, I kinda feel like I have lifetime supply of insulin… except for, you know, not.
Came home and made dinner using ingredients from TJ’s, which ended up not tasting as good as I’d hoped. Now I’m getting ready to spend a couple of hours working on, well, work before starting our two and half day workweek. Yes! Thanksgiving! I’m actually excited because I’m going down to my dad’s cousin’s house. It will be nice to see family.
See you tomorrow!
