Thank you Ms. Kat, you and me both!! I really felt the prayers from everyone, big time!!

I think we'll have a pretty good time. That is if Pat doesn't hurt me over her introduction.

Besides going a little overboard - I will not hurt you.... yet.

I feel good - I need to get back to running once this oppressive heat subsides and work off the rest of jiggly.

I know we will have a blast.

Great introductions! I didn't know Pat's true calling was counseling. See, you really do learn something every day!

Sorry, it's not like it's one of my favorite songs, actually I don't even listen to the radio unless it's talk radio when I'm in the car (how you know you're getting old). I just couldn't resist giving Pat her kudos and a hard time on top of it.

Thank you!! I'm having a lot of fun reading your TR.
She really does have an amazing gift in counseling and understanding people, not to mention the fact she's a lot of fun, she helps you laugh things off too.

Let's Talk About Shoes Ba-by!!

Alllllright my sista's! And those brother's who are into it, you know who you are!

It's Shoe talkin time!!

I've already ordered several pairs (yes I know it's a lot-I'll explain in a bit) of shoes for Mackenzie and I over the last few months, of course as the sales came out. Thank you zappos and Cavenders.
I wish we could share shoes but she's actually a size and half bigger than I am.

I don't know what y'all like to wear in the "world," and yes this is "girl speak," it's my way of asking what it is that you like to wear. Yup, you men are actually gonna learn something about women on here.

I'm a Yellow Box flip-flop girl.
I started out wearing them because they have such great girlie styles and the best part is that they're comfy!!
I started out wearing them due to the fact that they gave a lot of cushioning when walking, being that I was a big girl I needed something that would help my knees and hips not hurt by the end of the day.
They have decent arch support (good for those with high arches) and lots of pretty styles to pick from.

Alrighty then! Enough talk, let's get down to business!!

This is my Animal Kingdom shoe!! Aren't they gawdy, cute?!?

These are Mackenzie's picks....


click on pic

I've saddly come to find Yellow Box not as comfy as they once were. I ordered some beautiful flip flops at the start of the spring and when I got them I was disheartened to find they were rock hard and extremely uncomfortable! Come to find out all the newer styles are being made this way or are being made too narrow for me to wear, not to mention they jacked the prices up even beyond the pricey prices they already were!
Don't you just love it when a company get's someone in their boardroom who decides to take a good thing and tries to make it "better"?

So, when I found the one's that are apart of the older style (on the wider side and still had great cushion) and found them on sale, I ordered a few in each style we liked.
My thinking is it might be a while before we find another shoe we like or until YB pulls their heads out of their hiney's and realizes no one is ordering their shoes any more.
One of the biggest reasons women order YB is their comfort. I can wear them all day shopping and not have fatigue in my legs, feet or hips like I did with other shoes, even really good tennis shoes.

So let the shoe talk, "commence to start!!" (I've hidden several bits of movie quotes in my posts to see if Glenn has been paying attention)


Just so y'all know....I'm all for chit chat on here, there is no hi-jacking on my PTR. Feel free to make yourself at home and tawk amongst yourselves.

Somehow I have always been the one with the "couch " in her office. Figuratively of course - not trying to get a reputation here.

Having high School and College aged staff - there is always some sort of drama going on. Some growing pains, some just drama.


Sometimes it is easier for these guys to come talk to me rather than try to talk to their parents. If they can get it out, they can see a potential reaction.
For the serious things I always steer them back to mom and dad and remind them , they may be mad, upset, or dissappointed but they will not kill them.

Oh the things I have heard!!!! Some easy and some life changing. I treasure most of my staff as an extension of my family and I treat them like my children, wait sometimes I treat them a bit better since I don't have to pay to house and school them. I do feed and clothe them, how else will they do what I ask?


See my psych degree comes in handy!!! Between staff and the general public, every day is case study.

Now on to shoes.

I used to be a tennis show girl with inserts.

This past trip I wore other shoes and my feet did not kill me.

I found a cushie brand with arch support so I bought a couple pairs. When I find something that works I usually stock up too.

A personal tumble monkey AND a counselor! A woman of many talents!

Millie - I love the flip flops. they are VERY cute and I am glad you were able to order the old style. SCORE!

It depends on our plans for the day at DW. If we are doing the same park from open to close, it is my Skechers gym shoes for me. If we are going to a park in the a.m. and then going back to the resort to rest/swim and then back out at night, I'll wear my comfy Nike flip flops in the a.m. and then my Skechers in the p.m. I'm not really one into the "look", but just the comfort.
