08:41 pm - Friday Gratitudes
1. No snow! Dry streets!! SHOES!!!

Result of which is: shoes at work are much better than old Birks. Shoes seem to have cushioning which boots lack: wonder if soft inserts would help at all. Still had to stretch tendons for fifteen minutes after work and knees still catch during, but maybe regular stretching would alleviate instant boot-pain.

2. Fiesta Farms had two trilight bulbs hidden away on the shelf. Not as good as the now non-existent tripacks, but at least I have two more 50-100-150s for my bedroom and living room.

3. The smiley Maritimer (I assume, from accent) red-haired checker at Fiesta who always makes my day.

4. Next Thursday off, and maybe Friday as well.

I admit I know absolutely nothing about your foot/knee situation.

But I would note that I have flat feet (have done since childhood) and have to wear arch supports pretty much all the time, and that when the arch supports start flattening out (as they do every few months), my knees are the first to suffer. Do your boots have the same level of arch support as your shoes?

I have flat feet too, also hyper-flexible, which is the source of much trouble. But my orthotics are custom-made and supposed to last several years. I hope they do- I couldn't replace a $400 orthotice every three months. -_-

IME the store bought arch supports are much softer and do cushion nicely. But the ones here are nowhere near as expensive as yours, so I fancy whatever brand you have over there supplies a bit more lift than Dr Scholls TM.

Well, mine last about 2-3 months, and they only cost around $40 or so. A bit more expensive than yours in the long run...
