Sometimes a girl just needs something to brighten up her day. These pretty sandals are just the ticket. Jim and I were looking for a cabinet for our bathroom remodel job at a boutique-like store and just as we were ready to leave, I spotted this pair of sandals. I don’t think anybody would argue that they are practical, and most likely they won’t be very comfortable with all the beading, but they are flashy and just what I needed. Plus they were my size and on sale for only $11!!!! Mark ‘em sold! Aren’t they pretty? Ok the few guys who read this blog, quit rolling your eyes. I like them.
About 13 years ago I had both my feet operated on. The surgeon removed a bunion on my right foot and did a joint replacement on the big toe of my left foot. As painful as it was to have both feet repaired and replaced at the same time, I have always been thankful I did. It literally gave me my life back in terms of being able to walk. I was to the point where I could hardly wear anything other than wide “old lady” shoes without great pain and my feet were so ugly I certainly didn’t even consider wearing sandals. Once I was back on my feet (so to speak) I became a shoeaholic. I could wear just about any kind of shoe again! And I was pain free!!!!
I’ve notice, though, years after the surgery, that I have an unfortunate side effect. The big toe new joint foot has slowly but surely become a little strange. Ok, a lot strange.
If we ever meet and I’m wearing sandals, you will immediately notice my own version of the Vulcan sign.May we all live long and prosper!
