My house is a swamp, and the insurance company is not even going to cover a fourth of the damage (there is probably close to $25k of damage to our house). That is including the roof they are not going to cover. So we have no way to get a roof on our house at the moment. It is going to be raining, and snowing for at least another week before we get a touch of dry weather, so my house is just going to get wetter. So there is nothing we can do, but wait to hear if we qualify for some help. I am not handling this stress well in any way shape or form, and simply want to suck on a rum bottle all day. I don't drink (really rarely), so that says a lot. So how do I handle this? I go buy shoes! I justified them because, A: I needed new shoes. My kids literally bit a hole out of my crocs, and they are not doing so good *cry*, B: I hate shoes! I don't like anything on my feet, and never have. I have claimed them to be against my religion since I learned how to talk. People still made me wear them (and still do...stupid store policies). So I need to wear shoes, that don't feel like shoes. And C: They were 40% off. Yep, I was reckless. I rarely buy anything new, and I rarely spend more than a couple bucks on shoes (more like 50 cents at garage sales). This was a biggie for me. Somehow I feel happier though (sick, and sad how an inanimate object brings joy eh?).
I must admit I am enjoying the odd looks I get as well when I wear them. We should call it reason D.
