I spoke about shattering preconceived notions in my earlier post. And I got another one shattered, today. You see, I went shoe shopping. I decided to hit Sears, since they usually have a pretty good selection of athletic type shoes and they are all on sale, right now. So, in I went. I had decided that I needed Reebok walking shoes, size 10 wide. I walked out in a pair of New Balance size 10 medium running shoes. lol But they are so perfect. So comfortable and supportive. And I love how light they are and the bounce and forward thrust I get from them. And they aren't white. They are grey, silver and trimmed in pink. I love how they look. No more huge-ass white land yachts on the ends of my legs. I am determined not to wear the same pair of shoes for over ten years, anymore. From now on, I am getting new ones when I need them.
Now, if my frakking knee would just feel better. It is still sore but I can walk and shop and so forth with much less discomfort. I am going to continue to rest and pamper it for the rest of the weekend. I am hopeful that I will be out on the trails in my new shoes Monday afternoon. :D
I am going to get a rare weekend day to myself, tomorrow. William and Patrick are going down to the Valley with my BIL to see a ballgame at Chase Field. They got tickets for a luxury suite from William's employer and they are going to have a guy's day. They will watch the game in air conditioned splendor with comfy, padded chairs and all the food and drink they can stuff and guzzle. Patrick will love that. He can eat himself into a coma. lol The last time they saw a game in a suite was about five years ago. So this will be fun for the boyz. And here at home it will just be me and the furbags. Ahhh... Peace. :)
Oh! Remember the neighbours I was bitching about? He of the big, loud mouth and both of them of the obnoxious cigarette smoke? Well, she got transferred and they have moved out! They loaded up the last of their shit today and they are gone! Yay! At least I think they are gone... They left two outdoor chairs out on their front deck. I am hoping that they just left them behind and that it doesn't mean that they are coming back for any time. They aren't bad people and I could even live with his loud mouth but the smoke... Yuk! I am over it and happy to not have my house filled with it, all the time.
I am so pissed, I broke a nail while I was shoe shopping, today. I got careless, lacing on what felt like my thousandth pair and took a chunk out of my left thumbnail. Shit! And I had my nails at the perfect length for me, they were shaped just as I like them and I had no patches. Now this. *sigh* So I will be filing all of my nails down and growing them all out, again. Bleargh!
Oh well. They'll grow.
Okay, I guess I am about yapped out.
