Shoes, glorious shoes.
On Day 10 I shared my shoe obsession. How it started at a young age and how excited I was when as a teenager I reached the 100-pair mark.
I have many shoes.
So many, at times I accidentally leave a pair here or there and they end up in a suitcases or in the trunk of my car. I seem to always have a spare pair.
It reminds me of this little notebook my friend Sheryl gave me, which says: “She packed up her potential and all she had learned, grabbed a cute pair of shoes and headed out to change a few things.”
Last week I forgot to grab a cute pair of shoes!
After my little emergency jaunt to the mainland to get Pup to his vet pronto, I only grabbed the sneakers on my feet.
Once I realized I was “stuck” on the other side waiting for a ferry reservation to get back to the island, I started digging through my car to see if I had anything tucked away. Guess what I found?
Not one but two extra pairs of shoes.
Granted, one was a bright orange pair of Croc-like rubber shoes that I wear to the beach and the other a glorified pair of ballet flats with fun little bling-bling attached. Thankfully they gave me options for my extended stay.
Today, as I unpacked my bag and placed these shoes back in my closet I was reminded again that I have many, many, pairs of shoes, but I only have one dog.
Pup’s little leash hung on the door knob starring at me. In fact, Pup’s everything hung around the room: his bed, harness, bone, tennis ball. Justin wouldn’t let me move any of it. Justin wouldn’t even let me empty Pup’s water bowl! He wants like to keep it right in place until Pup gets back here with us.
Which is fine.
I can deal with the really nasty bowl of water we will have in a few weeks as we wait for Pup’s official bed rest to end. If that is what it takes to keep our spirits up then I can deal with it.
Until then, we’ll be right here waiting for our little four-legged guy to return.
Just what will I do with all the free time not walking, feeding, and playing with Pup?
I guess I can round up my shoes and count them.
