March 31, 2015. Vancouver, Washington. The hardest day of the week is Tuesdays--shopping day. My back is tired, my feet are throbbing and swollen until they're Hobbit-like, I have acid-reflux, I'm overly emotional and I still have one store left. I used to get home around 2:00, today it will be some time between 4:00 and 4:30; I'm definitely slowing down over here.
