Pictures and Procrastination

I have been studying all weekend, and I'm tired of it. I know I signed up for this. I know I'm not missing much in the way of a weekend anyway--I'm in Spokane, the only people I know here are studying also. My husband is in Portland and has been for over a week. But still, I want to be doing something other than what I have been doing, which has included:

1. Reading about the immune system and compiling study question answers with my classmates
2. Writing notecards for Pharmacology (quiz on Weds)
3. Finishing take-home exam for Principles of Anesthesia
4. STARTING a paper for Theories of Adult Education, which technically I probably should have started like a week ago, since I took the snowshoeing class for it like 3 weeks ago, and it's due Tuesday.
5. Bidding on Ebay...wha? Yep, it's true. Girlfriend needs smaller bras, and I'm a grad student now and can't be buying the ones I like (Body by Victoria) for full price ($51! each!).

That paper is what is up on my screen right now, MS Word and my cover page, started. That's it. I need to get cracking.

I did get outside briefly today, went to REI to look at clearance snowshoes. I found a pair for myself and they are quite nice. The price was reasonable, not earth-shatteringly low but good enough, and comparable to what is being found used on Craigslist. And they are Atlas, the good kind. Nice bindings. I HOPE that we don't have more snow this year, and I can just leave them in the closet until about November or so. But they are real purdy.

Took a few progress photos today. Proof that I fit in size 8 jeans (now the proud owner of 2 pairs). I tried on skirts at Target the other day...didn't buy any, but the size 8 pencil skirts did fit. That's another tick in the "really a size 8" column. I'm pretty sure the last time I fit into this size I was smaller than I am now. That was at least 15 years ago, so I guess we can chalk that up to the obesity epidemic in the United States. We all know what happens...you just have to buy that dress because it's a size smaller than you usually wear, no matter what it costs or whether you actually like it or not. It works for the Gap, anyway. American women are very predictable.

Here are the pics.

WOW! Size 8! That is super exciting, I still can't totally claim an 8 but for the most part I do. In boutique wear I'm a 30, which technically translates to "8ish or 10ish" depending on the brand. You look amazing! Keep it up!!!
