I slept in really late today!! Probably because I couldn’t sleep last night. I was still awake around 3:30am…blech!! I was feeling so tired too! I ended up fiddling around on my phone for a while. (I do have that now got shield thingy set up on my phone, to block the blue light from your eyes.) When I finally woke up, my daughter was trying to get people to help her clean up. Her birthday party is in two days and tomorrow she’s at West Edmonton Mall all day with friends. So, she needed to get it done today. I had already planned on heading to the shoe store on Whyte Avenue, Sole Experience, to buy a pair of shoes for the house. The flimsy slippers that I bum around in are bad for my feet, especially with my stupid plantar Fasciitis. So, no one was getting up to help her. She was totally stressing out. I had to leave, so I asked my hubby to help her.
I went to the shoe store around 3:45 and it closed at 5:00, so I didn’t have an enormous amount of time. I don’t know
if I looked bummy or what, but it took forever until someone finally helped me! I saw a whole bunch of people who worked there standing around visiting. I was clearly interested in trying something was trying to be really obvious with the eye contact. Finally, someone, who was helping another lady, asked me if I’ve bee helped yet. I said, “nope!” So he got an older gentleman to come help me. Once he was helping me, I had good service from him then! At first I was really frustrated. I felt like saying, “hello!! I’m here, with real, big person money!! I’d like to buy some shoes please!!!” I don’t know if I looked more like a browser…weird! Anyway, I mentioned last night that I have a hard time fitting shoes, well that is true still! I have, according to my nice sales guy, super high arches and really wide feet! Like I said yesterday, thick and wide!! I now understand why some older women wear ugly, but comfy shoes! Some of the shoes that he brought me were definitely “grandma shoes”, but man were they comfy!! I was super close to buying a pair…but I’m not old yet…there had to be something!! I ended up with a pair of a German brand slippers/house shoes. They’re cute, with little owls on them. Then I bought a colour and style I thought I’d never wear – but man they were/are comfortable. They were like made for my feet. Which, for me, doesn’t happen, so I bought them. $200 shoes for only $60!!! I got a great deal! The other ones were regular around $125 and I bought them for $80. So, not bad! I only paid $145 and the value is there!! The pair I bought are bright red dressy-looking sandals. I balked when I first saw them, but I swear that they were made for me and I wish that they had more colours. However, the sale has been going on for a while and their stock was low. Oh. And if/when I get my orthotics, they’ll fit into these shoes. It’s an orthopaedic shoe store with expensive brands, so I expected to pay s lot. I didn’t think there was any way that I’d be able to pairs. I need to thank Carol. She gave me/us the money for the shoes. To, hopefully, help the dumb plantar Fasciitis.
Once I got home from the store, I made chicken salad for supper. My younger daughter and I watched The Bachelorette while we ate and after supper. We’re really behind. The season is already over, but we have it all recorded. So, as long as I don’t see anything about the show, I can watch without knowing who she chooses. When I got home, my daughter had finished cleaning the kitchen. However, my older daughter wasn’t feeling great, so she only helped a bit. Gee, guess what I’ll be doing tomorrow?? Cleaning house!! After watching the Bachelorette, I coloured with my little man for a while. Then we came up for bed. And here we are!! Ready to stop writing WAY earlier than the past few nights!! Night All! 💤😴
