When my alarm went off at 7:15am this morning, my first thought was "Why the fuck is my alarm going off so early?"

Then I remembered that Carlette and I were going ice skating!

I am not very good at ice skating. You might even say I am terrible. I have weak ankles (the product of several sprains and breakages) and no foot muscles. My feet are noodles.

In an hour, I made it around the rink 10 times. But by the last three laps, I only had to stop to rest one time each, and each time I stopped slightly further than the last time. If I keep going back and working at it, soon I will be able to skate all the way around the rink without stopping!

I cut my fingers by scraping them against the wall trying not to fall. I had to get bandaids because they were bleeding a bit.

Carlette had to return some Christmas presents, so we had to go to Wal-Mart. I can't believe it's only the second day of the year and I had to go to Wal-Mart! ARGH. We were only there a total of five minutes, fortunately.

Next we went to Kohl's where this old man ahead of us was upset that he couldn't return items without a receipt and get cash. The cashier actually called for her manager and said "This old coot is raising Cain over here." He was cantankerous. So's his face.

While we were at Kohl's I bought new gloves. I loved my old gloves because they had hoppy frogs on them and they were very cute. But because frogs are cold-blooded, the gloves actually kept cold in and made my fingers want to fall off. Not good. Now I have warm gloves with no frogs.

We were lured into Home Depot by their commercials advertising a magnificent sale on organization items, and I have a dream of my house being organized. The sale? Not so magnificent.

We went to Applebee's for unlimited soup and salad. The only limit was the space in my belly.

We went to Bath & Body Works for their fabulous sale, and I got three new packs of wallflowers, three new soaps, some body sprays, and bubblebath! Then on to Kroger and Trader Joes.

All this driving, and did I mention it's snowing all day? We're smart.

I'm so wiped out from caffeine withdrawal ;_;
