Sizes and Clothes
Last night I suddenly realized that a very good coupon I had was about to expire, so I rushed out for an emergency shopping trip. I discovered that I've dropped another clothes size. Yay me! I'm still almost hovering between sizes, but the smaller definitely fits better. It just tends to be a little tight around the top of my thighs. Darn skater-humongo-thighs. I also have baby-balancing hips, which would be useful if I had babies, but since I don't they are just an inconvenience.

Still, I found two pairs of pants, one turtleneck, and one sweater. I went to a neato discount store that has designer fashions at greatly reduced prices. I also had the coupon, given to C by a very kind and beautiful woman who doesn't particularly like me (she said I could use it anyway), which made everything even cheaper -- I got all that stuff for just under $50! Unfortunately I didn't have a whole lot of time before the place closed for the evening; I really wanted to buy more since the deals were so good.

Today I am wearing my new purplish-red pants and my new turtleneck. It's nice having clothes that fit me, since many of my other clothes weren't very flattering anymore.

(As for the tasks I was supposed to be performing last night, packing and getting ready for my skating competition in hideously cold North Dakota this weekend? Well, I got some of it accomplished. Will have to finish it up tonight, as I am leaving tomorrow morning!)

safe trip!
skate like hell! (in a good way)
and break a leg... but, oh well that's a theasbian thing... what do you say to a skater before they go on?
perhaps...
'Don't get your toe cleat caught in the ice!'...?
'Hope the ice is smooth as a baby's behind!'...?
'Go stick the quintuple backwards inverted lutz!'...?


'May the audience adore you, may the judges be kind and merceful, may the costume always stay straight and never ride up, and may your day's be only ever blessed with perfect 10's....'

VERY COOL!!!
so what's the trophy, metal look like?
do you each get one, or just one for the whole team?

glad that you had good weather, skated well, and had fun!

both are VERY cute!

Thanks! We each get a gold medal, and I believe the team gets a trophy or bowl or something like that. my medal's pretty: it's shiny gold, on a red/white/blue ribbon.

Well, Tristen is awfully adorable too of course, but I'm afraid family takes precedence for me....
