My carpal tunnel type pains have been improving so long as I don’t do too much with my hands, which is tough since that’s nearly everything. Tim got me an ergonomic keyboard, which is pretty nice. Texas got really cold, and we had rolling blackouts due to all the energy use. The predicted snow never made it to our area, and all the kids (and grownups) were pretty disappointed, but Cady maintained a good attitude (since she didn’t know what was going on).
Tim and I went to a certain big camera store for the first time, which was pretty busy, just to look around, and we met a minister in the parking lot who was parked next to us, happened to notice him and I both graduated from the same Baptist university (I have a sticker on the back of my car), and wanted to meet me and Tim/invite us to his church.
My sister was on the front page of the local section of the newspaper for some great work she did at her university. Tim took me shopping, and besides buying clothes for the baby of course, I actually got a couple of things for myself, which I’ve rarely done since having the baby.
Also, we went to a new Asian market near us, which I really like even though they didn’t have everything our previous store does because it was really organized, had great crab, had good deals on a couple of my favorite items, and is conveniently located. The Yan-Yan were on the bottom shelf and had Hello Kitty on them, so of course, Cady tried to take every single one. She made the cashiers go crazy when we were leaving with all of her waving and blowing kisses.
I almost forgot. The JoAnn Fabrics near us is closing (re-locating to a bigger store), and they’re getting rid of everything, which means big savings. I paid $21 and saved $262! Patterns were $.50 a piece with no limit!
I’ve just been doing the usual mommy stuff, except much less time at my computer during my “me time” while the baby is asleep. I’m ever so slowly catching up on comments and spending most of my leisure time in books. I’m currently at my online request limit for our local libraries online catalogue, and my virtual “book bag” (wish list) is maxed out, too, while I wait for my requests to become available.
