This saved me a bunch. Which is great because the hubby needs to have some tests done as well.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Happy Holidays everyone!

I love Christmas, it’s the one time of year that we as a species focus on generosity and the love of friends and family as opposed to the minutiae of our daily lives. It’s a day that we realize and celebrate what’s most important to us. To that end I’ll leave you with this quote that I hope you bear in mind for the coming year.

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.

— Calvin Coolidge

I hope everyone has an enjoyable day!


In the interest of making me more active. I decided to do the couch to 5k program. Unfortunately the shoes I’d been using managed to get dry rotten since the last time I ran so new shoes were in order.

When it comes to running there’s a lot of information out there. The relevant info when it comes to purchasing a running shoe has to do with pronation.

This shoe is for people that are neutral pronators. I on the other hand am an over pronator but my current financial goals are such that I didn’t want to spend $1500 on a running shoe suitable for me. This one was a relative steal at around $600 and pretty comfy. And I’m fairly certain that considering the brightness of the colours I shouldn’t get run over again. Probably.

Well let’s hope that the running experience turns out well.


Can you tell I had a terrible fever? I’m so shiny!


And this was before while I was writhing around in the taxi in transit. It occurred to me that I should take a picture so I can compare them after.

I have to say that I prefer the shorter hair though, since it gives me a break from the dermatitis and it looks cute. Dare I say neater?
