I learned something this summer. I mean really learned it (as opposed to just thinking it). I have always known that good shoes can make a differnce in your feet. I haven't been immune to the appeal of cheap, cute, stylish shoes but I have also tried to make sure that I am putting shoes with support on my feet for most days.

Monday, August 11, 2014
It's Monday morning and I noticed that it is darker now in the early mornings than it has been. The year will slide toward the holidays so quickly.
Pk and I have been taking it easy for the summer. He's anxious about finding work before the unemployment runs out and I feel some anxiety too. The upshot is that we are both a abit more easily irritated than usual. I have to keep it in mind when he (or I) snaps.
I spoke to my pcp about these perimenopause issues. I have some days when I feel like myself but then other days when I am so headachy or grouchy or just having power surges one after another that I want to scream (and there's another reason for the increased irritability)
She suggested Evening Primrose Oil and B complex vitamins (and gave me a prescription for an anti-anxiety med if I need it). She also said some women take antidepressants.......I told her I was all too familiar with the psychotropics and would pass on them. I did take the script for the xanax because it helps take the sharp corners off on those days when I can't just sit down with some chamomile tea and put up my feet. I have an appt with the gyn in Sept and we'll be having a similar discussion.
My Fir Cone Shawl is coming along. I finished the center part and am now knitting the endless edging. It's a 14 row repeat and there are probably 500 repeats! I always have trouble starting a knitted on edge. I usually call Kate and she helps me see what I'm supposed to do but I figured it out myself this time.

Although I try to not wish it were Friday every day because I don't want to spend most of my week wishing my day away, I can't ignore the extra bit of sparkle that Friday brings. It's humid and still outside this morning and the sky is uniformly grey. No big storm in the offing but it looks like we're in for a rainy afternoon (followed by a rainy weekend).
Happy Sunday! I am sitting here working on my sweater made with the cashmere yarn my husband gave me for my birthday last year. I’m further...

Happy 2010! (That's said 'twenty-ten'.) We finally got out of the '0's' and now can move on. Pk and I had our u...
