Thursday blog

Just read a great article on shoe shopping and finding the perfect pair. The writer told of how she went to many stores and tried on many pairs.
I dont really have that option, in the town nearest me, we have two shoe stores that sell better quality shoes.
I can, and have ordered online, and probably will, but I have had to send shoes back because they didnt fit.
I hate the bother of it.
I type in the brand of shoe i am interested in and dozens of sites come up, and none of them ever have the right size/width combo that I need.
I even messaged them on the live help, and they responded. But still didnt find what I was looking for.
But the quest goes on.
I had a really good walk this morning, wearing my old asics that I have worn forever.
They have served me well. But I was hoping to try Brooks, or at least a better gel quality Asics.
I had to renew tags on vehicles and since our county is cutting everything under the sun, the clerks office is now only open one day a week.
So, that was about 45 minutes.
Internet has been off and on all day, so guess what, I actually got some work done lol.
Mopped my bathroom and cleaned out the tub.
Mopped the kitchen, and utility room where Biscuit is still hold up waiting out the flea problem.
I took her out on the deck for a little while today and let her look around at the birds.
Tomorrow I have a doctors appt and when its done I am going to Walmart and buy her some flea tablets, I hope they will help to keep them off her.
This is breaking me up putting me in the poor house.
40 dollar vet visit, 30 dollar Tractor Store visit. and now the pills!!
It is no wonder I havent bought any new shoes!!

I havent seen one on her in two days now.
But still finding them in the carpet. Keep repeating the dusting, vacuuming, dusting. vacuuming.
Mopping, cleaning, dusting, hoping to just get rid of as many eggs and fleas as possible.
Actually havent seen any today.
Did I just jinx that????
Well, speaking of doc appts, I will be so happy to get this one over with!!!
I hate getting on that scale.
But I got on mine here at home this morning and it wasnt too bad.
I am back down 3 lbs.
So, I am going to make that the positive for the day.

    I'm glad the fleas are starting to go away. What a nuisance! Yes, I definitely need to try on shoes before I buy them. I got bunions from my mother and wide feet from my father; not exactly the best of both worlds.

    Take care!!!
