Close Your Eyes...

And think about your favorite pair of shoes...

Not necessarily your cutest or most expensive shoes, but your "Go To" shoes.

You know the ones that go with EVERYTHING. The ones that you wish when you bought them, instead of buying one pair in every color... You wish you would have bought five pair in every color?

THOSE SHOES!

Well, I wore THOSE SHOES today.

At some point during the day I looked down at those once precious beauties, and boy had they seen their better days. I was pretty embarrassed that I even wore them into work!

I said to myself...

"You know Life, Love and Lola it's time to say goodbye. Every time you wear these you say it's going to be your last and that was at least 6 (or 12) times ago!"

And then I said to the girls at the clinic

"If you ever see me in these kicks again, take them off my feet and make me go home barefoot!"

Seriously, I think I've operated on those shoes with scissors and hot glue at least 3 times trying to revive them.

Anyhow, THOSE SHOES just went in the trash. Sad I know...

But in keeping with my New Years Resolution "To Be Happy" I had to find the good in all of this.

1. That frees up some room in my closet for another pair. YAY!
2. The trash men don't come until Saturday so I have two nights to sleep on this decision that I've made, and have the option of dumpster diving if need be.

You know, I just looked at a pair of black shoes I wore to work yesterday and realized how messed up they are. I think people don't look at my feet but of course they do. I have had them for over 6 years and it is sooo time to say goodbye. I will do that right now. Thanks for the inspiration :) Oh, your mom lightheartedly mentioned me coming to visit you guys and although I won't have too much free time with looking for a job that is a good idea. Email me and let me know your schedule for the week after next. Do you both work every weekday. I might as well take advantage during the week.

The pciture of you in a dumpster has me cracking up. I used to have a pair of stomping boots like that. Made me feel taller and they stopped making them. Damn shoe people.

I have two pairs of these shoes. I wore one pair today. I need to ditch both but I can't do it. My mom hates worn out shoes so I always feel a little guilt when I wear them.

I have a pair of shoes like that...I think they might still be packed in a box in the basement...

I like the idea of having room for a new pair of shoes...time to go shopping!
