Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties.

I heart shoes. Shoes are probably my most favorite thing in the whole world. I shouldn’t have done it. I shouldn’t have stopped at the mall and should have gone straight home like a good girl. But I didn’t. I went to Nordstrom’s because I had my eye on a certain black pair of Franco Sarto’s.

I quickly found the pair I was looking for and another pair of BCBGirls with sort of a retro-80s heel and a very pointy toe. I asked for them in my size and the girl returns with about four different pairs. She said the black Franc’s were on display in another department and she had to go get it, so to entertain me, she brought me about four different pairs of shoes to try.

Gaw. I told her that was a dangerous thing for a shoe-a-holic. Of course I tried on the other pairs but I wasn’t excited about any of those. They were just okay. She came back with the Franco’s and I have to say they are the prettiest shoes I’ve had in a long while. I love them. They were a shoo-in (no pun intended). Anyway, as it turns out, I walked out of the store with three pairs and did some nice damage to my credit card. Sheesh. But the thing is – I can do that sort of thing and no one gives a rat’s ass that I spent money on shoes or that I charged them. The only one that I have to answer to is me – which is sometimes a bad thing because I tell me that I can have whatever I want whenever I want. 😉

I probably should have spent the money on an AlphaSmart Neo instead of shoes, but…oh well.

Worked on the Winter Rose contest more. I’ve got all the judge’s score sheets made up and ready to plug in the scores. I’ve also got the scores plugged into each category matrix. So lots of good progress there. I haven’t been able to work on the dragon story much since I’ve been busy with the other.

I did watch most of the hockey game last night – Stars won in a shoot out. After the first period, I watched the movie Flightplan. Good movie. I enjoyed it.

Not much else to blog about today other than I’m so behind on reading blogs! I haven’t been neglecting you, I promise. Just been busy lately.

Okay… off to work and I need coffee.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
