It’s been two weeks now, but I feel like I’ve been working this retail job much longer. I’m surprised by the fact that my back has given me the least amount of trouble while my feet and legs continue to protest the most. With the legs it’s just a general soreness after being on them all day long, but with my feet it’s a very specific pain on the sides where my arch should be. It appears I have collapsed arches or flat feet or something as that’s the region giving me the most problems. At the end of the day those regions are this weird combination of screaming pain and semi-numbness that itches. The Nike’s I’m wearing are supposed to be made for walking exercise so I would think they’d have all the support I need, but I’m going to check for some shoe inserts for people with arch problems while I’m at work today. I’ve been tired enough when I get home that I haven’t spent as much time on the computer and as such my blogging has suffered a bit. It doesn’t help that my days off are split and I don’t really know what my weekly schedule will be until the Friday prior. I have this Wednesday off and I need to drive up to my parent’s place to take care of some PC issues they’re having that I wasn’t able to deal with over the phone.
In other news, my wife and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on Saturday. I had to work, but once I got home we went out for a nice dinner and a movie, but never made it to the movie as Anne has been under the weather lately so we had dinner and came home. I got her the traditional candy/roses/card combo because we can’t afford a whole lot on our current budget. It’s been a wild six years so far with some great highs and some major lows and we’ve stuck together through it all. Don’t know how she puts up with me sometimes, but I’m damned glad she does.
