I think I am addicted to shoes
Ever since I bought my first pair of cheap Birki`s Dorian clogs (ebay) for my feet, I was hooked. I have three pairs of them now. I have a pair of Betula sandals that cost only $11 at a consignment shop and I just won a pair of Born mules for $5 on Ebay. The biggest find was a pair of black Dansko mules for $5 at Salvation Army. Shoes were 50% off so they were $2.50! I am addicted to sturdy for my feet but oh so fashionable shoes. This is bad. I always owned up to being a handbag whore but shoes are a whole other level of depravity. I have to have cute shoes that help keep my feet pain free. I used to not care. I have a couple pairs of flats now (that are not high quality) just for the colors to match with certain outfits.
I blame it on the game Covet. If you do not know, google to find out. It is like electronic Barbie dress up. I like it. I play every day but only just once or twice. But I think the act of accessorizing outfits to win stuff has moved into the real world. LOL
Yeah...those Born mules come tomorrow. They will be a nice shoe for the fall. Most shoes that I buy have either been never worn or very slightly worn, like they wore it for a day and didnt like them. I have to have good shoes for my feet and badly used shoes from others are not good. I could never afford any of these shoes at regular price. Silly as it sounds, I cherish each pair. They will make my outfits looks good and my heels will be happy campers.
I made a appointment to see the allergist next week. I am going to bring up the subject of my constant itch. Then I will segway into the possiblity of Mast Cell disorder. If they dont the block of cheese, I will get referred to the Dr in new york. I have to get a handle on what is wrong with me. Did I give the kid the hypermobility? Do I have Ehlers-Danos? That could explain the cranial leaks. I have to talk to my Ear Dr about all of this plus my head shit. I dont want surgery right now. I can tolerate the symptoms I have for now. My vestibular issues are a pain but I know what it is so I do not panic. I face it (in my mind) head on so that I dont over think the symptoms and make it worse. The squiggly lines I see are just because my vestibular-ocular reflex is out of whack.
Some people do better with surgery. Some people get worse. I dont want to take that chance of the worst case scenario.
I promised a whole thread on eggplant recipes. I will dig out some stuff and get right on that! I have not forgotten.
Enjoy the rain today. The garden will surely be happy!
