a new day

I had a really rough day at work yesterday, I am not a crier at work, but I was so frustrated I had to have a 'talk' with my boss and while trying to deliver my point, I broke down and cried out of frustration.  It went well, and I felt much better afterwards.

I woke up this morning and it was a brand new day.  I also encountered a very pleasant bus driver, that totally made my morning.  Even though I still let stress get to me, but I am much better at letting it to and moving on.

Club Monaco Dress.
Frye boots.

mammo, ultra, MRI and repeat!

It's the time of the year where I get summoned to the hospital to start the annual tradition of Mammo, Ultrasound then eventually MRI.

Not wanting to deal with it so soon again, I 'conveniently' missed my November mammo appointment.  But I got a call yesterday to rebook it, I pleaded with them to let me do it after the holidays, so it's now scheduled for Jan 2nd.   Fingers crossed, I will get through this year's tests with flying marks.

it's the little things in life

When I'm at work I usually put on my earphones and listen to Songza.  The ones I have been using are some Aiwa ones from the walkman era (if you know what those are then you know how long ago that was), one of the ear piece kept falling off so when my work friend borrowed it she glued it back for me, but in the wrong shape.  I have been complaining and whining about them to P, who seem completely unaffected by my earphone woes.

Finally, this past weekend while at Best Buy I was determined to buy a new pair. Started off wanting those pretty Dr. Beats ones, then downgraded to some mid $20 range Sony ones, but eventually ended up with these under $10 Philips earphones. I was so happy to find out that they still made the old school round ear buds, for some reason I just can't seem to get use to the new ones that goes straight into your ears.   So so happy with my new purchase, love it!

As an aside, here's a snippet from today's outfit.  Lots of details going on here today...marled chunky sweater, printed shirt dress and a blinged out belt.
