Shoes: an update

Matt now tells me that he 'can't believe I wrote a whole post about shoes', 'how utterly foolish' he says. To which I retort, if for one moment I stopped struggling with the shoe situation he would notice there was a grave problem and would no longer utter the words 'utterly foolish'.

So delighted am I with the suggestions of a shoe shelf that I am going to spend a portion of today appropriating a misused shelf for that purpose. We already have children's coats hung very low in the hallway and a shelf will fit nicely and neatly next to them. Now, if I could just get Matt to wildly start moving beds around....

I so enjoy these little reorganization projects.

I love shoes.
Wasn't it Annie Dillard in "An American Childhood" who wrote about visiting her grandmother in Florida and being amazed and mystified and transfixed when her grandmother announced one morning at breakfast, "Today I am going to look at shoes."
I however completely understand that some days, you must look at shoes, and everything (I mean EVERYTHING)depends on wearing the right shoe. Seriously. Even the mere thought of the wrong shoe throws my back out and gives me a headache and makes me wonder if I need a hip and knee replacement. Shoes are so important. And they should be beautiful too.

My husband couldn't believe how ridiculously happy it made me to turn that old book shelf into a shoe shelf. Now that he has seen it in action, he thinks it's a fantastic idea. I love little projects that quickly and simply solve a problem I have been dealing with for too long.

Are you kidding me? I have done multiple posts on shoes alone. And mentioned them along with other things in posts. I HAVE A WHOLE LABEL JUST FOR SHOES. I just checked and apparently I have used that label 11 times. So Matt can shake his head all he wants.

Tell Matt that if writing about shoes is wrong, then I don't want to be right! (I hope you adequately communicate the drama in that statement). Also, Joyce has a pair of shoes that I think you would be foolish not to think about because they are so cool.

Matt, being a man, does not truly understand shoes. Bless his heart!

I only allow my kids to have two pairs of shoes at a time: one pair for church and one for everything else.

I sympathize completely.


I think I have 20 pairs. Life isn't fair.
