wee bit wednesday
Where can I start. I am so tired. But when I try to sleep, I just can't. Maybe I'm listening to too many sirens. I dunno. Its warming up. More crime happens. Then all this sadness with the catastrophe in Japan which seems to be getting worse by the day. So much loss of life. Its so shocking. Then you hear on the news how we'd be so ready for such a bad thing to happen here. I'm not so sure of that.
My friend who lost a loved one in her family a few weeks ago, is yet again facing more heartache. Her father put her favorite pet to sleep because the dog bit her step-sister's baby. The thing is, it was just a little bite. And the toddler was aggravating the dog. Its like the step-sister gets her way about everything. I just feel so bad for my friend. I'm not sure what I can do for her. That happened Monday. So its been a very sad week.
I may have to start walking to work because of gas prices. This means I need a good pair of shoes. The sneakers I have now, have holes in them. I don't know where everything goes in my room. I pack it away and I can't find it again. I had some really solid all weather shoes from TOMS that I loved now I can't find them anywhere, so I'm going to have to break down and get some shoes that will last. I'm on my feet a lot.
Hopefully, it won't be a major thing about walking. I love to walk. I have one friend who walks a really long way to work. When she lived at home, it was actually a quicker walk, but she wanted to move in with her boyfriend. I'm not sure how she dealt with i,t in the dead of winter. We don't talk like we used too. Anyway, sometimes, I meet people I haven't seen in ages while walking. Then I see some people, I'd rather not bump into. Of course, I keep hoping I'll meet someone who used to be in our neighborhood, but he moved away to the University. I saw his Mom not long ago, and she visits him in the middle of the week, sometimes. She's having a very hard time, letting him go. I can just see him having so much fun on his own. Otherwise, he's home helping her with five little kids.
So anyway, that's my priority to find some good sneakers. Of course, I've been thinking about this for months and still no luck yet. And I guess I need some matching socks too.
