First, here's a PSA video. It's a talk given by Dr.(MD) Wahls about how she cured (or at least has put into complete remission) her severe MS by eating right. Pretty cool stuff. ( Video beneath the cut )http://youtu.be/KLjgBLwH3Wc
However, the expense of that amount of kale (not to mention the grass-fed meat) is rather mind boggling, and that's coming from someone who grows her own! On the other hand, she's certainly right about the costs coming from another side, if not food. Been there, done that.
Which reminds me, I need to get exercising. It's pretty pathetic that 8 hours of shopping in the last three days has me so worn out...
Which brings me to the fact that I am stalling. I have things I need to do this morning, but I am just so tired. I think I slept okay, but my body and mind don't want to wake up. I'm very, very tempted to take today off and do everything tomorrow, except that today is the deadline for one of the to do list's items. Of course, I could do that and put everything else off until tomorrow... Hmmm.
On the plus side, I am 99% done with the family's Christmas shopping (though wrapping has not even started), and my first semester back at school is officially over. I'm pretty sure I aced the other final, but I don't think I'll find out how well I did, as that professor isn't into the whole blackboard grading/reporting thing like my management prof is. However, I am positive that I got an A in the course, meaning my GPA is currently at 4.0. Hopefully it will remain there for the rest of my community college schooling, so that I may be eligible for merit scholarships for the more expensive years of my BAcc. Plus I am looking forward to (being invited and) joining Phi Beta Kappa, which is led by my Management Prof.
Finally, you'd think that a business, even a business that doesn't focus on items such as toys (anymore; it used to) would make sure that they are WELL stocked in the favorites for the Christmas season, wouldn't you?
Page and I logged onto Sears.com last night to try and use his birthday gift certificate on Legos (so I would know what to buy for Christmas), and everything he wanted was sold out! I mean, sure, he could have used the certificate to buy from Sears marketplace (and pay twice the retail price for the Legos!!!), but, well, I'm not letting him do that. After all, one of my jobs as a parent is to teach him the value of money and, consequently, how to shop.
Anyway, it's annoying to see a good company being so stupid in the face of mass commercialism. No wonder they're failing. :-(
Anyway, should go do that one thing, if not all the things. Hope everyone is doing well.
ETA: Oooorrrrr, just sleep the afternoon away. I think I needed that. *grimaces*
