Oh man, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth on purpose - just been sick. Thursday I stayed home, went back to bed, and didn't get up until 4 pm; Friday had only a couple extra awake-hours. As you can imagine, this isn't exactly conducive to getting much accomplished. Please know that though I haven't been around visiting much, I have been wallowing in your kindnesses with much gratitude.

The crushing fatigue freaks me out, but poor Beary is in worse shape than me - soon we will be comparing bedsores.

This outfit (from last Friday) is a more casual look than I prefer, but I got over having to be practical by deploying new shoes. Yay!
I hadn't tried any footwear by Fidji before, and after eyeing these up for quite a while at the sale price, found that I couldn't let a further 20% off coupon expire. I'm very happy with them: immediately comfortable! Lots of compliments as well.
My "reduced shopping" is a pretty informal situation with plenty of exemptions - hats are 100% allowed, awesome shoes and exceptional items are carefully considered on a case-by-case basis, and there are some very specific things I'm looking for. Also keeping things in check is being too busy to go anywhere besides work and essential errands.
Even before I took to my bed with the plague, I was desperately behind on so many things both at work and at home, and together with being downhearted over missing our girl MJ and dreading decorating for xmas (though I have skipped it entirely two years in a row already), hiding under the covers remains ever so much more appealing than springing into action. Alas, I am (kind of) a grown-up.
At least that means I can also bribe myself with wish-list dresses.
Off I go!
