Another gorgeous walk this morning and I had a nice chat with another woman who walks in this community. She is young and beautiful. I don't know why I had to point that out, but I did. We agreed that we like the sidewalks and that there is too much traffic (in Lloyd! yes!) and she warned me, as everyone does, about walking in the woods. I told her I've been doing this for ten years and so far, I've never felt threatened by man nor beast.
So. Speaking of walking.
Do you think I need new shoes?
I'm thinking I do. Jesus but I am hard on shoes. My toes go through them within weeks and no, I am not buying a different brand. I've been wearing Sauconys to run and walk in since I was in my twenties. They are the only brand that has a heel narrow enough for me. And that is going to be my errand for tomorrow- to get new shoes. Today I have my boys again and I think we might go to the Bad Girls Who Get Saved By Jesus Thrift Store after I pick up Owen.
"Pick out a toy! Any toy!" I say magnanimously. They think I'm awesome. And of course, I am when it comes to thrift store toys. For five bucks I can make them the happiest boys in the world.
And that's about it. Mr. Moon left the house about 6 a.m. and he just called to tell me all is well up in Georgia. The geneticist just called and the results of one of his tests his back and he does not have what we thought he had and so what the hell is it?
Life is just fucking mysterious.
And on we go.
