I have had chronic back pain for years now, and just recently saw a podiatrist for what I thought was unrelated foot pain. He recommended orthopedic shoe inserts, but I'd put off buying them since they're a bit pricy.
Yesterday I was completely knocked out by back pain and saw my chiropractor, who asked why I hadn't gotten the inserts, since my foot pain is definitely related to my back pain apparently. So I spent almost $65 on plastic shoe inserts!
DS and I had a very pleasant afternoon. We went over to the library and I skipped the Friends of the Library book sale room (painful!! good deals, ignored!) and checked out a book I need for school, so I don't have to buy it. Saved $24.95 plus tax! Yay! I checked out a pressure cooker cookbook and a train board book for DS, and we went over to the duck pond and read our books. Then the train came by and DS jumped up and down, excited, yelling "Choo choo chain! Choo choo chain!" until all the ducks scittered away, hehe.
We're having lentil-barley soup tonight as part of the pantry challenge, and it smells deelish. Plus, I didn't have to buy anything to make it.
1: Used $40 prepay at the chiropractor
2: Used $40 prepay at the chiropractor, spent $64.84 on orthopedic inserts for my shoes (and for DH) so I can hopefully avoid using more prepays at the chiropractor! Plus shipping swap stuff for $32.57 and $1.00 at the library to look up my card - stupid tax because I left it at home.
