I think my winter boots may finally get a bit of a break. This week the last of the snow disappeared, and the ground is drying out. I’ve traded my parka for my leather coat. I won’t say that spring is around the corner, but I feel like there is hope.
Today I realized I needed some new black shoes….the last pair I bought at Meijer while grocery shopping when MAM was an infant. The pair before that? I got at a consignment shop while on vacation in 2004. Yeah..time for new black shoes.
Today we wrapped up a visit with parents, after church we headed to the mall. After lunch, Grandma headed to the playland with MAM and Grandpa took Jr. for a stroll. This left me with time to spend one of my Christmas gift cards. Score!
So I went to Macy’s, to the shoe department. How long has it been since I’ve shopped in a proper shoe department? Let’s say I was slightly more than amazed at the hand held scanners all the salespeople had–they scanned the shoe and could tell in an instant if the size/color I wanted was in stock. Amazing!
Anyway, I took my time, perused a lot, and ended up with a winner. What do you think? And do most proper shoe departments have those hand held scanner things?? I know, I know, I need to get out more…..
