I just had a revelation. But first, a little background.
So, I was feeling a little down over my shoe situation. I know, I know, of all things.
Here’s the deal: I own one pair of heels. I never wear them. I own two pairs of backless ballet flats (black, silver) that have seen better days. I own one pair of black loafers (for lack of a more descriptive term). I own one pair of really old why-can’t-I-think-of-the-word…(legless Uggs is all I’ve got) shoes from American Eagle that are actually men’s and I got them for 50% off a bazillion years ago. I wear them every day, and they’re filthy.
All of a sudden, I’m having shoe insecurity. I know in my heart that no one will judge me if I don’t have cute shoes. But…
If only it were warmer than 30 degrees. I could wear what I wear every single day from late April to early October (give or take a couple weeks). FLIP-FLOPS. Oh, flip-flops, how I miss thee!
And then it hits me.
The place where I’m going? Is closer to the Equator than where I live. Why did this not register to me earlier?
I go to weather.com. I check the forecast.
71 degrees all weekend.
Are you kidding me??
Flip. Flop. Flip. That was my happy little heart. Break-dancing.
I imagine that the natives might think it’s a bit chilly for flip-flops. They thought my girlies were nuts for swimming in an outdoor pool back in April.
Some of you have asked why I’m being all secretive about my plans for the weekend. It’s kind of like this. Sometimes when I’m working on a writing project (usually a book), if I talk about it too much or blog about it too much, it loses steam. For some weird reason, I keep thinking that if I ramble on and on about my big plans, then I’ll have used up all my excitement and momentum, and everything will go downhill from there.
Ridiculous? Perhaps. But it’s how I feel.
I’ll for sure tell you all about it next week when I get home. Sadly, since Techno Hubby isn’t going with me, I won’t have a camera, a laptop OR an iPhone. No contact with the online world at all, really. It will probably be very good for me.
I’ll give you a hint. I’m headed back to a place we visited on our Zoo Trip. Staying with a very special someone(s) that we stayed with before. And spending time with some precious gals I only got to see for a bit last time.
I won’t be going to the zoo (that I know of), but they have a nice one. Even if it did rain the whole time we were there.
I’ve got some posts scheduled while I’m gone, and I’ll be back LIVE(ish) on Monday! Have a wonderful weekend, friends!!
