Sacrifice for Beauty

I like pretty shoes, but being mostly a pedestrian leaves me with few viable options in that regard. I went to a wedding this weekend, and wore a new pair of promising-looking heels. I try to go with old-lady brands, and these were Rockports, so you'd think I'd be doing pretty good. You'd be wrong. I walked about a total of two miles in the shoes, and my heels are torn up like you wouldn't believe. Here's a picture of the carnage that I discovered when I got to my destination. Double that, and you'll be able to imagine what it looked like after I got home.

I've never figured out what to do about this.  It's too bad the world has decided you can't wear socks with a skirt any more.  Until this heals, I'll be wearing sandals every day.  I noticed that Band-Aid makes a foot lubricant to put on your feet so the shoes won't rub.  I wonder if that just means your shoes fall off all the time.  People talk about uncomfortable shoes, but don't really mention that they are out for your blood.  How in the world are people supposed to stand this?

Heads or tails?

I was wearing shorts and got into my car only to painfully find out that there was a penny baking in the sun on the seat. I seem to have branded myself with it - ow!

So was it heads or tails? It's sure hard to get a close look at the back of your thigh, so I can't tell. Andy says it's tails.

If it's heads, what year is it?

Eyes Just Opening -- It's Like Being a Kitten

I'm shocked to find this survivable. Feeling relatively okay. Still very swollen. Seeing is hard. Typing is hard -- the sensing.

Sara's still having some problems (a little more than before) typing, but the short-term memory issues and confusion seem to have subsided.
