Good day with my mom.

Day off today from work. Went first for my oncologist appointment. We reviewed my mammograms from a week ago or so and she agreed with the findings. BENIGN! I am having a followup mammogram in July to double check on the calcification they saw in the results. After that went to my moms. Since the weather was colder again and snowing, the roofers were not coming out to start on her roof. Also, the holdup is the city, they don;t want any roofing done if the temp is below 35 degrees. Even if the installers are heating up the shingles to get the glue to hold. Works for us, we could leave and go out for lunch and run errands.
had a nice brunch at Perkins, and then I went on the search for black dress slacks for work. My slacks were plain wearing out, especially the pockets. My keys for work have pretty much shredded the pocket, can't even mend it any more. Jim and I had looked at Penney's last night, but no luck. Today my mom and i went to Kohl's. I usually have good luck there, but the slacks I have bought for the past few years were gone. So I tried on about 20 pairs of basic black slacks. I need a comfy fit for sitting, easy care and pockets and a short/petite style since I'm short.
Finally found a pair the would do. Trying on clothes is such a pain, sizes are all over the place. Finally ended up with a size 14 Petite. The slacks I was wearing was a 10 Petite. I know I have gained some weight back, so the actual size isn't that big a deal for me. All the manufacturers seem to cut the sizes different. I was trying on slacks from 10-14. Fit and comfort was more important than the size to me at this point.
Dropped off my mom and then home. Going to be helping hubby tonight on a project for some signs. Ate a nice supper and after the movie is over we are watching will head downstairs and get to work.
