Had another Lori lunch yesterday. Finally bought myself some new shoes. Not only did I do the Lori think and run errands on my lunch hour, I went to a store she suggested. A large self-service shoe store. Perfect. No standing around for someone to wait on me. Just browsing the aisles ’til I see something I like, try them on. If they fit, buy them and go.
I don’t buy shoes the way normal women do. My husband has more shoes that I do. If I find a pair I like I buy them in black and brown and that’s generally enough to see me through a year or more. But it was so easy to get these I might just be able to get myself to go buy more.
I’ll have to keep that impulse in check. Having less crap, including shoes, is a good thing. It keeps life simple. Do I wear the brown ones or the black ones? Deciding what to wear is one of the banes of my existence. I can’t even imagine what it’s like for people that have to match their shoes to their outfits and their purses to their shoes. Make-up, jewelry, stockings, scarves.
What I should probably do is line up my outfits in my closet and just go through them 1, 2, 3. Decision making problem solved. That actually sounds like a pretty good idea for me. No one is going to notice that I have a ‘Tuesday’ outfit. If I line things up in advance it will measurably streamline my mornings. Hmmm.
