I dropped Miranda off at my dad's late in the morning, after Miranda and I had spent some time nursing and watching the inauguration; our new president's speech wasn't as overwhelmingly positive as his past speeches have been, but it was still infused with his Majestic Radiant Appearance (you Exalted people will understand) and I appreciated the more down-to-earth tone. I was horribly stressed out over the presidential race and extremely relieved when Obama was elected. Now I would say I'm cautiously optimistic and filled with a feeling of hope that I want to hide away, lest it get snatched away.

After dropping Miranda off with my dad I grabbed lunch at Taco Bell, then went to what is possibly my favorite (or at least the one un-hated) of the big box stores, Target, to shop. I went in feeling miserable about the shape of my body and my general appearance, but feel a whole helluva lot better now that I've changed in to some of my new clothes, which fit properly and are flattering to my figure. I will need to hem up the jeans, since I'm a shorty, and adjust the straps of the two camisoles I bought, because I'm a busty shorty, but I'm happy with everything I bought. I may go back to see if I can get another color of the sweater I bought, because it's comfortable and very flattering to my figure, but I don't remember seeing any others in my size; I would have liked the green one, because it's not a color I often wear.

When I picked Miranda up she was in a very good mood and so was my dad. He really enjoys looking after her and it was good for me to get out of the house, so I think the short break was good for everyone. Carl got home shortly after I did, so the whole family went on a walk, including Conrad, who is once again learning how to behave well on a leash.

I'm glad I got out of the house- I really need to make a point to get outside every day, even if it is just for a walk around the block with Miranda- because I was definitely sinking in to a sad, little funk. Today was rejuvenating and now that I'm feeling better about my appearance I feel like a weight has been lifted from me, which is a huge relief; I hadn't realized how badly that was hindering me.
