Driving around aimlessly

After work today, I stopped by Mom's place. Hung out for a little bit, and then was on my way. Way to where, I do not know.

I thought I knew, but I was wrong. I got in the car and was driving. I don't think I've ever driven, without purpose. I must of been in some kind of clouded funk. I thought maybe I will go here... As I pass it I think maybe not. I don't really want to get out of the car and park.

Then I think maybe I will go to target, pass by and think 'I don't really want to spend money right now' so I keep driving. Soon I am just driving, really going 3-4 miles out of my way just because I am too stubborn to go home.

Mr. is not due home for another 4 hours. I do not want to start packing, I am not motivated to do housework. So instead I am driving around, and when I see the indicator get closer to E, I am so unmotivated to get out of the car, I am forced to just drive home without getting gas.

It was the strangest feeling. I really wanted to go do something, yet did not want to spend a dime. Did not want to drive around but did not want to be home. Maybe it's the state of home limbo I am in. Calling this place I am in now home, and soon calling another.

All that aside I did come home and finally had to do something with all my nervous energy. So I plopped down at the computer and did something I have not done in way too long.

Art. And thus a finished painting. I really want the weather to cool back down so me and mom can go on walks, else I see many more pointless drives in my near future.

Chores In High Heels

This weekend I have a cocktail party and wedding to go to. Although I don't really ever dress up, I have a few dresses in my closet. The only problem, I don't really have any good heels!

So yesterday I spent 3 hours at the mall on my search for the holy grail, the perfect heel. Perfect for me at least. Because I do not wear heels often.. maybe never ,they need to be comfortable. When I do wear heels I love pointy toe, rounded toe makes my feet look even more small and squatty. Then I would love it to have a strap, so when I am walking around my feet don't slip and POP right out, which happens a lot.

My search did not go well, I dislike the mall already and now I just spent 3 hours too long there. I stop by Mom's and I ask her, " Have you ever seen.. a pointy toe heel with a strap?"

"what color?"
What do you know, she has a pair and only worn once. A life saver!!
So now to break them in and practice.. so I don't look a girl clomping around in mama's shoes

I am doing my chores in heels, which is not easy when you have slippery tile in the whole house. Sweeping, mopping and laundry. So lets hope by tonight I am a pro and my feet don't hate me!
