This is a picture of my evening. Yep...first of all - the shoe. I am so excited about finding possibly the world's most comfortable shoe!! It's American Eagle, cloth and feels like wearing slippers and I found it at Payless for 15 bucks!!! (It's hard for me to find shoes that work for me because I wear orthotics in my shoes because I have unusually high arches, and at one point I had tears in the muscle on the bottom of my foot from wearing shoes with no support. Was that T.M.I. for you?) Anyway, I've needed shoes for a while, and have been holding out hoping for something that would be cute and trendy, yet comfy, priced right and hopefully would work with my inserts. So tonight was the big payoff. It was 'family night' tonight, and so we spent it as 'the boys' and 'the girls'. Bryce just started Little League (that will be another post), and Seth will soon, so both boys were in need of, and extremely excited to get, cleats and new gloves. (They and their father had all expressed, in inadvertent ways, that this was a manly activity, and I clearly saw the desire for male bonding time, as well as an opportunity for some mother/daughter shopping time!!) So we all headed to the mall and split up - Kate & I to the Kohl's clearance racks and the 'men' to Dick's Sporting Goods. We found some great deals in no time, did the cell-phone check-in with the guys and found we still had some time, so we made a bee-line to Payless. I found these little cuties in no time, a pair of great shoes for Kate for $5 (also a need after she finally gave in today and admitted her last beloved pair of shoes were too uncomfortable to wear anymore).
As you may also notice in the picture - laundry. It's all nicely folded; what you can't see is how MUCH clean laundry there was. I believe it to be 6 loads or so, but when baskets get combined because we need to wash yet ANOTHER load, one quickly loses count!! Anyway, tonight was the night of reckoning, and it had to be tackled. So, 2+ hours later, here I am.
And you know what tomorrow is...!?!?!?
