come on shoes, get here already.

i am waiting patiently for my shoes. since they were sent usps, i only have a number that tracks the shoes until they leave the united states. this was at the chicago airport on october 14. that was a few days ago, so hurry up shoes! i was going to run again this morning but couldn't bring myself to get out of bed. oh boy. i went to the gym last night and rode my bike to work, so that's probably enough activity so long as i step it up tomorrow.

i got new batteries for my scale yesterday. i went to this battery store in the underground scotia plaza and they tried to sell me batteries for $24.99 each! (i needed two.) not having that. after work i rode to the source by circuit city where they were only $6.99 each. very strange price difference. i really like the source by circuit city. at first i wasn't into it, because i thought it would be just another radio shack, but the prices are very reasonable and the sales people have always been really helpful to me.

last night at my book club i was all pumped to have a pint of amsterdam framboise beer—but they took if off tap! thanks jerks! they replaced it with pumpkin ale, which i had. it was alright. i seem to be on a mission to want to really like pumpkin, even though i only sort of do. like pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin oatmeal pancakes, pumpkin ale... i think it's because i know how good for you pumpkin is. there are many foods—like green beans for example—which i used to hate but now love because i know how good they are for me.

tonight i have a stay at home date which is nice. here is today's menu up until dinnertime.

oatmeal with a bit of milk and strawberries (3)

microwave meal of chili (3)
leftover greenie beanies (0)
2 slices ww bread (1)

i have grapes and a pear hanging around work, but chili is so filling i don't think i'll be hungry. ok back to work. :o)

I'm not a beer fan, or a pumpkin fan, but I keep trying really hard to be a pumpkin fan too for some reason! I never even knew it was that good for you!
