Random thoughts

I've heard the expression "brain dump" recently  - that applies today. I'm actually working on several things - I have posts scheduled in advance as part of a blog challenge I stumbled across today, and I'm also working on my first-ever joint blog post. As for today, though, all I have are random, disconnected thoughts.

I really need a haircut. My hair has gotten so long it's ridiculous. When I can put it in a bun with only one clip and no work, it's too long. My hair is very fine and thin and straight, so when it gets like this it just hangs flat and I can't do anything with it. So, it's time to get some inches off.

Don't you hate it when you try on new shoes in the store, at the end of the day, and they're comfy, but when you wear them to work they pinch all day? I'm hoping these will break themselves in soon!

I finished Depression Cookies this week and fully intended to write a post reviewing the book. But, I suck at book reviews. I have a hard time talking about the book without giving too much away! I did write a review on, though, so you can read that review. And buy the book while you're there, it's incredible.

I had something great happen yesterday at work. I was chatting with a security guard and he suddenly said "Christine doll, (he calls everyone doll) you've lost weight! What's your secret?" I felt so good that someone could tell a difference! I still have quite a way to go, but it's nice when even a small loss is noticed. It's encouraging.

  1. You are so sweet to mention Depression Cookies. You've truly made my week, and I can't thank you enough. We just found out tonight that DC was given the Silver Award for Realistic-Fiction in the 2011 Readers Favorite Book Awards.
