I took my first Levothyroxine tablet this morning. I was really, really worried that I'm not supposed to eat for 1 hour after I take it. Mom gets up in the middle of the night to take hers. Turns out I can have black coffee, just no calories. So, I'm good. Now I wait and see what it fixes.
I want to welcome new readers and thank the on-going ones for reading and commenting. Little/BigFoot, HermitJim's Sis, the usual suspects who I have started to feel are like family, and any others out there. I write for myself and anyone who wants to follow along. I am surprised and humbled that others actually want to read what I write. It is a nudge to have a life worth writing about to know that there are some who will read.
I have been engaging in some retail therapy lately. Most of it will be useful, even if not really needed at this point. Many months ago I mentioned that I am attempting to find my 'look', clothes and such that I am comfortable wearing, and that I don't feel like I'm 'that' old lady. I don't mind being the one who wears purple and a red hat that doesn't go, as long as it makes me feel good. I am tending to standardize on black/beige solid color bottoms and jewel tone mostly solid color tops. Loose pullovers. The picture from Vegas told me to veer very far away from tight tops. The rolls showing there are mostly from slumping, as I've lost most of the weight I gained in Honduras and am a normal (for my height) 125lbs. As I've said, I need to strengthen my core so I stand up straight.
A blog that I enjoy reading to give me ideas (not usually at her price point...) is http://www.theviviennefiles.com/ which is kind of like adult (not THAT kind of adult...) paper dolls. No dolls, but she picks out color combinations from art or scarves or other things and builds a simple wardrobe around them. It has me thinking about clothes in a whole different way. She turned me onto http://www.uniqlo.com/us/ which has basic clothes that are inexpensive (usually).
Another blog I was reading from her sidebar, http://www.wardrobeoxygen.com/ had me going to http://www.6pm.com/ which has inexpensive (again, for some values of inexpensive) shoes as well as clothing. What can I say, at work sometimes I need escapism.
Who knew I'd be waxing on about fashion in my blog ever!
