Yesterday I felt strong enough to go do some returns at the mall. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the stores weren’t crowded and the parking lot had close spaces open and waiting for me. Score.
As long as I was in the store I thought I would search for a pair of dress pants for a party coming up this weekend. Nothing. Went to another large department store….nothing there either. Seems to me if you need a Petite size (translated…short) you are out of luck. If you go to the regular petite section, you have to be a size ten or smaller. If you go to the women’s petite section, manufacturers think you are at least five foot six. I an stuck in the middle…five foot nothing and needing a 14 or 16 woman’s petite. I will try Lane Bryant but I rarely find anything there either. Clothes designers need to understand that every “Plus size” woman is not tall.
Back to what I was going to talk about in the first place…overdoing it.
Today I feel like a wet rag…. jello legs, hands hurt, arms ache and feet throbbing. I took Tylenol for the aches, and 2.5mg of Cortef, to combat the fatigue, which I don’t think helped at all. I think rest is the only thing that will help me today.
What do you do when you way overdo it? Can you push through it, or do you need a day or two to recover? “The Help” is on cable…I will be on the couch watching it tonight with a pillow and blanket.
