I did a lot of shopping this weekend. Yesterday I went to Radio Shack to replace my earphones and also picked up a battery charger and rechargeable batteries, since I've been going through them like nobody's business lately. I also got a new memory card for my camera.

I also made it to the grocery store yesterday, so I have some food for the week, yay!

Today I met some friends for breakfast at J'eet and then did more shopping. This time at the mall. I haven't been to the mall in ages, but most of the stores were having clearance sales on summer stuff. I found some tees I really liked at one place but the sizes ran small and they didn't have any larges. Another store had a top I loved but it wasn't on sale and I didn't love it nearly enough to pay full price. I did finally find a little top at The Gap on clearance so I managed to get at least one new summer shirt.

The most important part of today's shopping trip, however, was new running shoes. I'm pretty sure the bursitis can be traced directly to old, worn-out sneaks. So now I have new ones, with fancy replacement arch support soles. I can run again without damaging myself (in theory).

I also checked out the local Joann Fabric in hopes of finding something suitable for the Ganger costumes, but they didn't have enough of anything that came close to what I wanted. Apparently there are some stores down in the Strip that sell upholstery fabrics, so I might have some luck there. I'll find something eventually, just don't know how close it will be to the show. Eta: And I just found a site that I hadn't seen before, that has a promising vinyl. A sample should be winging its way to me shortly. *glee*

I'm now conducting another crockpot experiment. I couldn't find a recipe for what I wanted so I just threw a bunch of stuff together in blind faith that it will be edible several hours from now. I'll keep you posted.

Are you doing the acid protection suits for the ganger costumes?

Just the coveralls, not the armor-like suits.

Cool. I'll be looking for pic updates!

PS - hope the new shoes and battery charger both make your life more comfortable. I'm still trying to find my battery charger since I moved - ran across it once, when I wasn't looking for it and haven't been able to figure out where ever since.

Congrats on the new shoes - I hope they run the bursitis right outta town :)

Also good luck with the crockpot experiment. It sounds like most of my cooking -- throw some stuff together and keep your fingers crossed.

The chicken crockpot experiment went pretty well. I was pleased.

I hope the crockpot experiment turns out to be a great success!
Good luck with the new running shoes.

The running shoes were good and the crockpot experiment turned out well, so it was all to the good.

I do find that many aches and pains can be related to the need for new shoes. If you are running regularly you need them really often, IMHO
Hope the crock pot worked out. I tried to do chili in mine once and learned that beans DO NOT cook properly in a crock pot--they need pre-cooking.

I hate spending the money for good running shoes so I tend to wear them into the ground, but it was definitely time. My hip feels much better after almost a week of not wearing those old shoes.

Hopefully your new running shoes help with the pain. It's quite easy to use sport shoes for too long, imo

I hate buying new running shoes so I tend to wear them into the ground once I've got them. But the new ones seem good. They were quite comfy when I ran in them yesterday. :)
