so this week.
So preschool started last week and inevitably Young Indiana got a cold by day 3 and I had a cold by day 5 and very excitingly Ted did not get a cold, he got a twisted appendix (he’s on antibiotics for it and they’ll decide in another week if they should take it out or not), so this past week has been…somewhat exhausting. By which I mean we are all dragging ass and staring thousand-mile stares.
I’ve been re-reading the Continuing Time books while sitting around being on media blackout/sick/waiting on sick people. I still like them. I still desperately want Ola Blue’s story.
I have come to the conclusion that I need to accept that if I cannot walk at least a mile and ideally six or seven miles in a pair of shoes, they do not suit my lifestyle. This means I have a number of pairs of shoes and boots to bring to charity shops. I need to do that sooner rather than later, and with the least amount of “BUT THEY’RE SO CUTE” angst as possible. :)
I should do something similar with clothes, actually, but I’ll deal with the shoes first…
enabler of blue suede shoes
My husband is an enabler. I wanted to stop and try on some very cute boot-style blue suede shoes that had low, walkable-in heels and which I was quite sure wouldn’t fit, because wide feet. And they brought me a pair and they weren’t wide enough, of course, and I said oh well and Ted said I should ask if they had them in wides. They were already in D widths so I figured that was as wide as they went, but I asked.
And they had them in E width, and they fit. So now I have a very cute pair of blue suede shoes!
