Wednesday Evening

Aren't those shoes great?  Unfortunately, they caused an aggravated and angry blister on the third toe of my right foot.  It was nice to stand in church in a pretty new dress, jacket, and black patent leather shoes.  The angle on my leg is not exactly flattering in this photo.

I left work today because I feel not well.  I slept most of the afternoon away.  After I wrote out one big honkin' check to the U.S. Treasury.  I made an electronic payment for my state taxes.  It did not make me happy.  Normally I feel like it is just part of being a responsible citizen.  This year, it seems like being a responsible citizen is not really the best thing to do... but I will do it anyway.  

My day was made better by a phone call from a woman who just wanted to stay sober today despite huge painful challenges.  Talking to her was the bright spot of my day.  

I am going to watch American Idol and go to bed.  In fact, I may not be able to stay up late enough to watch American Idol, but I will have the show on DVR, so I can watch it later.  

You know what is bad about writing at night?  I can't say "let's stay sober today, OK?"  But I guess I can say "let's thank God for another day of sobriety today, OK?"  Yeah, that works.

Well, I think that is a very flattering leg shot. But Mary, do you have to keep feeding my foot fetish?

Oh, God, I just looked up "fetish" and I may remove that word from my brain...crapola, anyway!

Feel better tomorrow, OK? And yes, I'll join those thanks for this past day's sobriety and busy-ness.

Sure, that works.

I would not be able to venture off my usual posting routine. I am much more focused in the morning on my intent.

Syd said...

I'm with Scott. I do better posting in the morning. I'm also with Steve on the feet thing. Sorry that the shoes hurt. Maybe they will stretch. How women wear those super tall spike heels is beyond me.

Blister or no blister those are nice shoes and terrific legs, if you don't mind me saying. Now the taxman can't take those can he!!

Pam said...

Love the legs and shoes in that order.
I'm proud of us for trying it new ways to see what works.
I wish I could find ANY time that wasn't rushed, but I can't seem to find it.
I may end up a lunch time poster who knows.
enjoy your day.

Those are very nice shoes. I used to wear 4" heels most every day to work. Now I wear steel-toed boots. Funny how things change.
