So, I like to go shopping after Halloween. What do I like to shop for? Nope, not candy. I mean, sure, I'd love to have candy around but I really shouldn't. I'm still looking at all of this excess weight that I gained during Maggie's battle and yep, it ain't goin anywhere - so I definitely don't want to make it any bigger! :) No, I buy the prepackaged stuff like raisins and cookies etc. The other day while out I bought 2 bags of individual size boxes of raisins! Today at CVS, I bought 2 bags of individually packaged bags of pretzels for 3 dollars! These go great in Jared's lunches or as snacks on the go and the kids feel like it is a real treat. I would have loved to have grabbed some costumes but I am still not willing to pay the 1/2 price on those costumes!
So here is where I am not really saving money. I was told that I should get orthopedic inserts b/c of the pain I experience in my shoes. Well, I am bypassing that to buy some shoes that help my feet without the inserts. These shoes are pretty expensive, but we figure if I can go without limping and wincing in pain then they might be worth it. Hopefully these shoes will help me to not need surgery down the road. I figured tho that if I bought the inserts I would probably have to buy new shoes to fit my feet with the inserts anyway...... So right now, I have a pair of "tennis shoes" whatever you want to call them. They are great. NO pain. I also have a pair of Adidas sandals that I wear only around the house. Again - they are great. However, I am not generally a tennis shoe type of person. And they wouldn't "go" with what I wear to church. Lately church has been my biggest source of foot pain as that is when I want to wear my heals with the pointy toe and within 10 feet of walking I want to cry in pain. Or I can wear my sandals and well, ummm, it is just too cold for sandals for me. So I found a pair of shoes that I hoped would work but when I showed them to Rod, he reminded me that this style wouldn't work. So tomorrow, I get to go shopping and spend lots of money on just one pair of shoes.
Ok, so I would really love to form like a women's group of some sort. Just a walk thru life together as women who are trying to follow Jesus the best we can kind of a group. I am looking for women who want to be real and authentic, who want to be challenged and are not afraid of challenging other women and who like good deserts. :) I can bake pretty good, I promise. (hence my weight issue) Please email me at my email if you are interested.
