The Mall Awaits
I didn't get up for my cultural experience on Black Friday after all. Did you read about that poor fellow who got trampled to death at Walmart!? That's enough to discourage me from attending any of those shopping "events" in the future, too.

A zillion little things
I feel like I had a productive day today. None of the things I got done was really major, but mostly I'm happy I didn't WASTE a lot of time worrying about what to do next, and just DID it.

Down and Out
I was down a pound on Monday! But I've been doing some emotional eating since then. Stressing out a bit about all that needs to be done before my trip to the States, and also fighting a cold. But hanging in there none the less...
