Zoey's secret

Zoey has a new sleeping spot and I don't know where it is. She sleeps there at night and sometimes for a daytime nap. I thought it was in one of the closets (which have curtains for doors) but now I'm not so sure. This morning she came in from the living room - there aren't too many hidden spots in there. Right now she's curled up in my lap and not revealing any secrets.

I think I'll go back to my regular swim place/time today - 11. Last Thursday, it wasn't too crowded. Here's hoping for the best. The baseball game starts at 9:30. So I think I'll watch the start and then the recording when I get home.

I took my return to the USPS yesterday and learned that they no longer charge extra for tracking numbers. And, in fact, the entire cost was under $5 and it will get there Saturday. Pretty good deal. I have contacted the seller with no reply. BUT I did charge this on my credit card less than 30 days ago so yeah. I'll get the money back one way or another. (While I was writing this, I got an email from them saying when they got my return they would issue a refund.)

In 2013, I met this interesting lady at CES who had an interesting product that measures effort while swimming.I pre-ordered one. It was and is a good idea. It was a better implementation than it is now. In the ensuing 18 months, technology has moved on and this gadget hasn't plus, it hasn't even shipped yet. It requires a PC or Mac. So you plug it in every day after your swim. Sorry, I'm passed that. I need it to talk to my phone so I can leave it in the car with my swim stuff.

So I wrote and asked for my money back. It took 3 notes and 3 days (time zone difference... she's in Lebanon) but I got the money back yesterday. Nice. $150.

And in other money saving moves, I've been shoe shopping on line looking for shoes for flat feet and shoes that will take inserts. I have not hit 'buy' yet. I've been waiting for those inserts the doctor recommended. They arrive today. Yesterday, I dug back in my closet and found a couple of pairs of fabulous Summer shoes that I love that I cannot wear because they kill my feet. I'm so hoping I can 'fix't them with the inserts. I'd much rather fix what I have than buy (and break in) new.

On the one hand, I hate wearing shoes all the time. I'm such a barefooter. BUT my feet are much better. No cramps, not muscle knots, no seizing. So... I guess my barefooting days are truly over. Oh well, it was a good run.
