As bad as I felt yesterday, I did some (online) Christmas shopping. I had to, because there was an item I particularly wanted to get and it was being offered online at about half the normal price -- and yesterday was the final day for the sale price. I figured as long as I was buying that item, I might as well get a couple of others, too. It feels really good to already have a few Christmas present purchases under my belt. Each purchase reduces a little stress, you know what I mean?
I don't know what the heck was going on with my ear yesterday. I don't think it was cold-related, because my actual outer ear was swollen, sore, and red. I'm thinking perhaps a spider or something bit me. Thankfully, it's much better today, as are the cold symptoms.
Yesterday marked the change back to Standard time. I get so weary of changing a multitude of clocks, not to mention adjusting my internal clock, twice a year. I wish they -- the ubiquitous They -- would quit messing with the time. The only good thing about the latest change is that I don't have to get up in the dark for another six months. I still haven't reset my watch. Every attempt to pull the tiny little stem up resulted in another nail chip. Grrrrr.
