And yes VERY cold..

7/18/12

Guys I drove today... 4th time EVER driving in NZ... holy toledo that was scary. My mom likes to scream out random things when she thinks we're going to die... which is every 5 minutes >.< So I was getting more and more stressed out but I did good :) Still alive, no scratches, no accidents.. phew!

SOME OF MY NEW CLOTHES CAME!! So I'm parading around in those... will get better pics eventually.....................

Sky's blood panel came back.

You aren't going to believe this.

....................

100% HEALTHY!!! ONE FREAKING HUNDRED FREAKING PERCENT OF FREAKING HEALTH!!!

I am so so so beyond happy. I will flaunt the test if I can get my hands on it (for my records since I keep track of all of that.) But he went from blehhh to one hundred percent. In less than 2 years. No feet problems, no blood problems, no weight problems, no skin problems... NO PROBLEMS!!!! :) :) :) Wooooo we did it!!!

I love work so much. I actually finished my math during the "lully" times.. as in when nothing can be done on my end so I have to await directions (that's because I'm still in training but also because it's just not part of my job haha!)

I'm loving my hair... I'm not loving my tummy though :( For some reason I've been really bloaty lately. I think all the coffee... my trainer LOVES to take coffee and tea breaks every couple of hours. My bladder CANNOT handle it haha! I went from zero coffee... to like 4 cups a day :/ ohhh I'm such a little whale atm :P

Hope you're all well!

I hate the bloated coffee feeling. I usually have at least one red bull and 3-5 medium coffee's a day, so I would know haha.

Thats SO awesome about Sky!!!

7/19/12

The fashionista in me is completely heart broken. I'm on the verge of tears.

I ordered some heels. My first pairs of work pumps. 3 inch heel, in nude and in black. I get them..... and they're too big. I'm usually a size 10 with socks and 9.5 without but my mom's 9 pair fit to a T and my 9.5 pair I could fit an entire finger in there!

I'm so sad because I can't exchange them only order some more and ship the big ones back. That'll be another week yet.. :(

Why am I heartbroken? Because I had my heart set on wearing them next week and now it'll be a good 2 weeks till they're here. And that makes me weary to ever order shoes online again because my size.. just isn't stable. It changes. Flats are always half a size bigger than heels (because my feet are flat and I put inserts in) but dang...

But on another note, Sky is doing great. He's been given "clearance" to go on in hand trails :) Wish we had access to better ones where he's at but it'll do for now. I wish they'd give him loaner boots already though so they could go riding....

And a final note, which makes my fashionista grin with deviation; All 4 of my skirts arrived today and apart from snuggling into one (I have a huge hind end for my "figure weight" so I have to be careful with putting most bottoms on slowly lol... ) they flatter me so well and fit to a T so I'm happy about that.

Today was good but then not good for some reasons. I looked strange IMOP but when I got home and settled I felt much prettier. I think today's events just took their toll on me (rude people mainly.. getting the "she's new so we can scold her or ignore her in our conversations" vibes.)

I talked it out with my mom and I feel much better. My mom and I don't really talk much... it's odd. You'd think we would but we don't.. she shows me cool things and I show her cool things but we don't sit down and talk about life. Lately we have been, even about things going on with her and my dad (he's being a typical male lately..) and I feel so much closer to her.

I don't know guys.. tomorrow is "casual friday" and I was so set on wearing heels with flared jeans and a cute rocker top. Now I'll have to really give it some thought. Maybe even crimp my hair and put it in a loose bun. I think I like that idea.

I haven't felt this down and out since.. well.. I was dumped.

I think every manufacturer has a different size.

I never buy shoes online.

I haven't, but it's very frustrating.. 'm glad someone gets it.

gunslinger, if you were in my situation where clothes, food, and shoes cost 3x more, then all you're left with is online or you can't afford anything.

I'll get over it, today was a little bit better.

Sky apparently had a fabulous day with my friend and was on his best behavior for the farrier as well!

He even got his tail braided!

I sent off his supplements to the barn. Awhile ago they sent them wrongly to my address so today they made their way over there..

I showed a few pics of Sky to a "horse racing Kiwi" as in.. he only knows OTTB which are built WAY differently than a dutchie paint cross :P And he was all "oh he's fat" (LMAO)
oh he's got this big wither and sway back" (yeah... sure.....) "Oh he's too tall"

I expected it to sting but it actually made me laugh cause it just goes to show one man's "trash" is another girl's absolute "treasure" :)

I do miss him..

Re ordered my heels so we'll see how that all turns out. I gotta go to bed soon

Can you go somewhere to try them on and then if the prices are so much higher, order them online?

I've found, if you travel to a store to look at or try on the item you have the cost of fuel. If you pay shipping, and then have to pay shipping to return the item, and then shipping again for the new item.. Well, pretty soon it isn't much cheaper to buy online. Some places have a restocking fee.

Also, online shopping doesn't really help the local community....as no local payroll, no local business license, no brick and morter or property taxes, often no sales tax collected.

Now, if you can't find the product locally then there isn't much choice but to buy online.

Again, I've found that a size x from one manufacture is different that the same size from another manufacture, and I'd expect to return shoes several times to get the right fit.

My mother would order stuff from the sear catalog back in the early 60's and in those days it took months to get the returns credited. She quit doing it.
