no time for tears

To look @ pics of my new shoes, skip to the end. 😉

I don’t have any new info on the dad situation (see entry below). I facebooked him (ha) last night about my living situation so he could know what he was getting into. He has probably answered but I’d rather not know the answer until tonight. I have a lot to do.

I have to sell this upcoming Saturday!!!!!!!! I had no idea that this was the last Saturday in April. I thought I had 13 days to get ready. Uh, no. If I want to sell before Mother’s Day and all of my new inventory is geared towards that…then I have to sell this weekend. Oh dear. I have half of my stuff priced. But I still have tons to do. Do I smell a to do list?

  • put earrings on posts, price them @ same time
  • prepare at least 10 Avon booklets w/business cards, samples (good lunch time project)
  • price shoes, put them in tie up bags
  • pack selling display in one box
  • find gently used stuff around the house (if those items don’t sell I will prob throw them away)
  • uh, price everything else
  • go to mom’s house on Friday after work to pick up the final items
  • prepare $1.00 and $2.00 baskets (have to come up with decent signage?)

The only fun thing for me is the earring project so I’m going to do that right after I post. 🙂 I do wish I had more time to prepare…especially with findings things around the house but I already have done a lot because I enjoy playing with selling jewelry. This isn’t work. It’s fun.


I was supposed to post about my random shoe shopping spree. First my philosophy on shoes: I wear my tennis shoes and dress shoes for 2 years straight. I then get mad that they don’t last and I’m forced to buy a new pair. And I refuse to buy Reebok or Nike shoes (unless used) due to what I saw growing up. I don’t blame the shoe company. It is the culture we live in. Where I lived, you had to have the newest Nike or Reebok shoes or you were tease. Not bullied (big difference). The guys had it the worse but us girls got it too. I saw poor people with no jobs do anything to get the new Nike. People with no jobs. They would rather go without a utility then send their kids to school without the best shoes. Needless to say this has stayed with me (ya think?) and I am just disgusted by the pressure so I don’t go there. Yes I have “weird causes” due to the weird things I experienced.

Also I stay away from white shoes and high heels. White tennis shoes just aren’t attractive to me (um, until yesterday) and I can’t/don’t know how to walk in heels.

That is TMI. I went to an outlet store. *self-proclaimed thrift queen* Anywayz, look at my new shoes:

I don’t have anything against Skechers. lol. I have a black pair just like these. I’ve worn them for a year and I have to admit that I’m getting tired of wearing them everyday. So when I saw these, I was so giddy! Now I can switch. I love Skechers. They are really the only brand I’m familiar with these days.

Ha, I couldn’t resist the bling! Lol. I’m the less blingeset person on earth. That bling is the Guess logo. I didn’t know Guess made tennis shoes. I knew they made purses and clothing. Even though they are white, I think they are kinda cute. 🙂  Anyway, I got them for $9 and I desperately needed a new pair of tennis because I’ve had my skechers’ tennis for two years. I have to retire them for mowing the lawn.

Two pics for these fab Report shoes. Check out that link they have some cute flats/wedges. I might have a favorite dress shoe brand. I can’t do heels but wedges aren’t like heels. I can wear them when I’m not doing a lot of walking…to work, for example. I will probably wear them tomorrow. I will take my flats with me just in case.

3 pairs for just under $50. I have never brought 3 pairs of shoes at one time. heh. Or in ONE year.

I also brought a Nine West purse for $10. It’s black with a long braided strap. I *die* for a braided strap. It is too small for everyday use but perfect for traveling.

Maybe I should go do stuff.

    1. The secret is to never pay full price for anything. I used to shop only @ thrift stores now I’ve graduated to outlet stores. I need to back to thrift stores only. Best way to save $. 🙂
