For the past year I have been having some major(ish) issues with my feet. Primarily with my right foot. It has gotten to the point that, when I get home at night, I am almost in tears because of the pain.
I know what you are thinking. "Go to the doctor, dummy." Perhaps you aren't thinking the "dummy" part. I thank you for that.
You are right. I know it. I *should* go to the doctor. I *should* also do the dishes in my sink. Guess what is going to get done first?
Hush up, there, BFF. No one likes a smarty-pants.
Anyway. I have been thinking the last few weeks that I really, really needed to find a pair of shoes that will help cushion my poor right heel so that I won't be in so much pain by the end of the day.
I have found THOSE.SHOES.
Say hello to my little friends:
I was shopping this weekend and happened to wander into a Famous Footwear. I honestly didn't set out to go into the store, meaning it wasn't on my list of things to do, but I did and I am SO happy!
I was wandering through the store and I spotted these sweet beauties and thought, "Aren't those nice looking?" Then I spotted the tag on the inside that said they contained orthopedic support. I tried those puppies on right away and wanted to cry tears of joy right there in the store. As soon as I put the shoe on my right foot it took all the pressure off my heel and the pain was (mostly) gone. To make matters even better, the store was running a BOGO sale so I was able to get a white/pink pair as well.
I wore them to school today and, for the first time in a long time, I had very little pain in my foot by the time I got home. As soon as I took them off and began to walk barefoot, though, the pain flared up. Summer time is going to be interesting because my love of all things flip-flop is well documented. I can't even begin to IMAGINE having to wear tennis shoes all summer. That would be the worst.
Speaking of summer....have I mentioned lately that I don't have to work in the summers anymore?!?!?!
Speaking of work...I had FOUR children out today. All were sick. Two came to school and were on their way home by 11:00am because of said sickness. One of those sweeties manged to BARF ALL OVER THE PLACE!
I don't do vomit well. Especially when it has chunks of last night's dinner in it.
I'll spare you the gory details. Suffice it to say, his mother had to bring him a change of clothes.
I don't need to tell you that I Clorox-wiped every conceivable surface in my room twice today.
It was totally psychosomatic, but I swear to you, right after the vomit child left, I felt my stomach getting all queasy. And I'm not sick.
Oh please, God, don't let me be sick.
I don't do vomit well.
Pray for me.
And finally, here are some pictures of my sweetie because, well, just because!
I will blog about the other two books I got tomorrow, I promise! :)
