I'm quite achy this morning and blame most of it on the weather change. My joints ache as well as having a slightly sore neck and other places. My shoulders are, as always, tense as hell. I've also noticed the chair I have at work isn't good for me. I've never had a problem with chairs before, but this one makes my tailbone hurt if I sit in it for too long. Very strange.
Yesterday I had a wonderful surprise. I took emilytheslayer food shopping for her place and found that Tastycake has made it up to MA! One might think this would be bittersweeet since I've recently cut all sweets out of my diet, but not so! Tastycake is now making some things with Splenda and they are just as delicious as everything else they make. It is true: Nobody bakes a cake as tasty as a Tastycake! We bought two kinds, chocolate-chocolate chip and banana-chocolate chip. Lower in calories and no sugar. I won't be eating them often, but they should help immensely with the diet and no-sugary treats thing.
Now for the embarassing story. Before I picked emilytheslayer up yesterday, I went to the storage facility. I'm taking apart the shelves that can be taken apart in the theory that they'll stack better that way (and they do!), so I spent around 20 minutes there. On the way out, I had to pee, but they'd just locked the bathroom for the night. No big deal, I'll just pee at emilytheslayer's school when I pick her up. On the way there, I drink a 20 oz bottle of diet coke.
When I get to her school, there's really nowhere to park and the supermarket is only around 10 miles away, I figure I'll just pee there. We get around 5 miles away and I really start having to pee. I think it won't be too long, so I'll tough it out. BIG mistake. Traffic was hell and it took another 15 minutes to get there. By the time we arrived, it actually hurt to walk. Before I got out of the car, I had images of Tycho Brahe dancing in my head. I was, however, reasonably sure that emilytheslayer wouldn't steal my nose and my notes and run to France. I've never had to pee so badly in my life!
OK, so that wasn't that embarassing, but had you been in the car, seeing me drive and do the "I have to peeeeee" dance, you'd have laughed at me.
