Shoes of the Day

I'm bored with blogging. I'm reading all kinds of blogs, but I just don't feel like I have anything interesting to offer the blogging world. I've finished several sewing projects, worn them, loved them, but I just can't seem to get the photos from the camera to my computer to the blog. And reading a written description of the projects probably wouldn't be too interesting.

The Huz and I have had amazing adventures at the doctor's office (i.e. Dr. Jerkface, MD is pretty much a chronic grump and I'm tired of him treating me like I'm a moron and then getting snarky when I apologize for forgetting something that he claims he told me), great times with family, have gotten colds, have gotten better, have made great strides at work, but none of it feels interesting enough to share. Blah.

I got my chipped tooth fixed. The dentist made it a bit bigger than it was (we're talking micromillimeters), but since I too make things bigger than they were naturally I freaked out at first that I now have a rabbit tooth for a front right tooth. But I'm positive I'm blowing it out of proportion because no one has noticed, or offered me carrots, or run me out of their garden, so I think I'm alright.

My sliced open finger is mostly healed. And TC is still super awesome. He isn't convinced that he is, but for reals, HE. IS.

I could write about how the leaves are falling and it's autumn, but I'm guessing that's pretty much apparent to all my readers.

We had an uneventful Halloween except for the chubby kid with grubby fingers that helped himself to a heaping handful of MY candy when I had already given him some and was distracted giving candy to his TOT-mates and how irritated I was at his audacity until I remembered that he was just a kid, probably six, and I wasn't exactly oozing manners when I was six. So maybe I was a little hard on him.

We've also been really into Utah football and the Jazz. But we have cheap cable, so we don't get to actually watch any of the games. But where there's a will, there's a way, and TC found a way that we can enjoy the games. He's cool like that. A lot of the time, we just end up waiting for the sports section of the evening news and eagerly watching the highlights. Maybe we should just upgrade our cable. Can you imagine? I'd watch HGTV nonstop. That could get ugly.

So now that I've established by writing several paragraphs that I have nothing to say, here's what I have to say today. Below is a photo of the shoe of the day. Splash Fashion Footwear brand cheapies that I love.

TC picked them out for me several years ago at Burlington Coat Factory for cheap. Oddly, I wasn't too sure about them when we bought them, but now, a couple of years later, I love them. Thank goodness I held on to them. And I'm glad I came around.


  1. I too am having a bit of blogging burnout. I feel boring or controversial, and neither of those are really what I'm going for on my blog.

    I have a group of friends that choose a theme and every Friday they all write whatever they think of for that theme. Any interest in doing something like that?

  2. Wow that is exactly how I'm feeling too. I've got a boat load of photos but don't have the will to get them from the camera to the computer. I love that your blog is genuine and down to earth. I was just visiting a dumb blog that I shouldn't because it is so lame. The girl blogs about every trip they go on which seems like every weekend and how awesome she and her husband are. What most readers don't know is that her mom is a flight attendant so the fam flies for free and they live in her parents basement. I hate her... Anyhow if you want to hate her with me, here's the link to her blog...
    I'm so grumpy lately! But your blog cheers me up. Love to you and your awesome HUZ xoxo

  3. Shannon, I would LOVE to participate in something like that. Sign me up.

    Liz, I read blogs like that and they irritate me too. SSB, but not a parody. (BTW I did check out that blog and TC and I both found it annoying. We may have been influenced by your introduction, but still, annoying.) I've been grumpy too. Maybe it's the lack of daylight?


Tell me something good.
