Wanna talk about I
Wanna talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you you you you, usually, but occasionally
I wanna talk about meeeeee
Oops sorry. I got a little carried away! Every time I hear that Toby Keith song I think of my bestest Lexie… and it ALWAYS makes me smile.
Aren’t they wonderful?! For years every time I see someone in black Converse sneakers I fall a little more in love. They are cute brand spanking new or worn and well loved to pieces. I have no idea why I never clued in that I could own a pair of my very own, but I never did. The other day I was drooling over my little sister’s and I just decided. I WOULD own a pair. Soon. Then I happily remembered a White Oaks mall gift card I still had from Christmas, called to check the balance, and discovered I had just enough! (3 dollars and change to spare actually!)
Here’s something I hoped I wouldn’t have to say for another few years at least…
They make me feel YOUNG.
haha… oh trauma.
They also make me feel like I have the smallest feet in the world. I bought 7 1/2 size shoes! I guess they are unisex so the sizes are a little off, but perhaps because I idolize my tiny mother as the model of what a woman should be, and I am NOT that, having a 7 1/2 size pair of shoes fit makes me extra happy. I’m sure every time I put them on I will pleasantly recall their size and smile. That alone makes them worth the purchase. Plus, they were such a fun splurge. I usually buy clothes with cost and need in mind (not that I don’t like my clothes, but they are chosen out of practicality). I didn’t need Converse running shoes. But I LOVE them.
And just in case you didn’t have enough of my neurosis for one day…
What is this picture about you ask? Well, I was checking my profile for chin fat. Jon took some shots of me cutting Juno’s hair the other day and what I saw when I loaded them on the computer was traumatizing! It was chin city! Thank goodness for Photo Booth on my lovely iMac though, it confirmed that yes, in certain angles I really do have some extra chins. But as long as I keep my head up it’s not TOO bad yet. I’m somewhat relieved anyway. I’ve always had jowly cheeks, so it was a valid concern I think.
And yes, in the background you can see what I SHOULD be doing right now while the kids are napping, picking up (although taking pictures of my chins and new sneakers is much more fun). Best get too it actually. I have a hot date tonight and don’t want to leave this sty for the sitter.
