Productivity and Forgetfulness

Goooood Morning! I had a pretty good night's sleep last night. I only woke up once wincing in pain and the pain wasn't as bad as the night before so I must be healing. And I can type two handed this morning instead of using one full hand and just a finger of the other. Although the finger still looks like a "banger."

I had a pretty productive day yesterday. It all started with a humming bird hovering just outside the window where the computer sets (and this is not where I feed them). They arrived early so I went to get the humming bird feeder out of storage. Alas, I could only find part of it. Where is the rest? I couldn't remember putting it away last year so I wasn't sure. I decided that I'd probably put the other part under my kitchen sink since I'd probably washed it good before retiring it for the season. So, I sat on my fanny in front of the sink and proceeded to look for it. This wasn't going to be easy, just looking, so out came EVERYTHING. This is a task that I've been meaning to do for at least 2 years and kept putting it off. Now all the stuff under the sink is straightened up and all the stuff that had only a dribble in it is in the trash. Sure is a nice feeling to get that done. But...I still can't find the rest of the feeder! I did this last year too! The year before I had 3 humming bird feeders hanging on the porch and couldn't find a one of them. I knew that I'd cleaned them and put them away, but for the life of me I couldn't find them. So off to the store I went and bought another one. Guess what, I think I'm going to have to go buy another one this year. I am so disorganized.

Thanks for the advice on shoes. Sorry, Fatinah, I searched online and couldn't find a Running Room in my area. So I continued searching for the ones that Cammy suggested and found 2 that look like just what I need. I'm skeptical about buying shoes online (have tried that and they never fit right) so I printed out the pictures, info and prices and will carry them with me when I go shopping, maybe tomorrow. Gotta go to that dreaded mall I guess. Actually I'm pretty limited with places to buy good athletic shoes so I may do a little more research to find a place that carries these shoes.

Looks like it's going to be a good day for being outside so I know I'll enjoy my walk. Sure wish the MP3 player would get here. I kept checking the status of my order and it was supposed to be shipped on April 29th. At 10:30 PM it still hadn't shipped and that's when I became skeptical, with good cause because checking it the next day I found that they'd changed the date to May 5th. Here goes another week of singing to myself and it's not a pretty thought since I "can't carry a tune in a bucket." I don't know why I didn't get the gene that helps people carry a tune because I love to sing. At least now I can do it without anyone telling me to shut up, since the dogs are the only ones that have to listen to me and they can't talk.

re your raw fish comment on my blog - you're so funny - I don't eat anything out of the water at all! My avocado salad rolls are water product free, except I hope for the tap water used to rinse the veggies! I laugh because I have the same reaction to sushi!

I'm glad your soreness is fading away!

If you have any "outdoor" type stores in the area (hunting/fishing/etc.), you might try those for hiking shoes. They might have only the boot type shoes, but it could be worth a try.

If you have to resort to the online method, I recommend . They have free shipping both ways. If your shoes don't fit, you can return them for free. A friend has used them for years. without any problems. Here's a link to the hiking shoes section:

I have to go now and check out their handbags. :)

Hope you had a great day!
