Day #17: Inching Along

Oy vey. There’s another hurricane brewing, and people are freaking out. The stores were crazy today, with people rushing to buy up the last of the water, ice, and toilet paper. I’m just exhausted from my day, and not really into writing this blog post, so I’m going to keep it short.

The Man and I went shopping again today, looking for my shoes and also to buy my new cell phone. Since I started my new job, I’ve been in a not-so-great financial spot, and to save money I decided to join The Man’s family cell phone plan. His mom, dad, The Man, and his little brother are on the plan, leaving one open spot that they graciously let me occupy. It’s much cheaper per month than what I’m paying now, and I’ll finally be with a company that has the iPhone, which I’ve wanted for a long time (my phone is for both personal and business use, so it’s a good buy on my part). Unfortunately, part of joining the family plan was losing the phone number that I’ve had for almost 8 years now. The other bad part of the deal is that since The Man’s dad wanted to add me to the plan via a phone call with customer service, I couldn’t get the phone today. It’s being mailed. In any typical situation, that would be OK, but now with a hurricane coming, the mail could take between 3 days and 3 weeks. But, oh well, at least I’ll have it sometime.

As far as shoes go, I did score on a great pair of black patent leather Michael Kors kitten heels. At $39, they were more than I had planned to spend, but they’re the kind of shoes that go with most business outfits and will last years, so I’m pretty happy.


Before going shopping, I did make it to Bikram class this morning, and since I weighed in at 160 earlier and also ate very well today, I’m hoping to be at least 159 tomorrow. We’ll see. Hopefully I’ll be back on track at 156 by Wednesday, and that by then the storm will have also passed us by uneventfully. Cross your fingers!
