Ms. J needed new shoes. Badly. Problem? Hard to fit feet.
Off to the mall we go. Mission? Two pairs of black shoes. One to wear ONLY to church (since she scuffs up shoes so badly they get horrible looking fairly quickly) and another to wear when she wants to wear skirts and such to school, which is quite often.
Ugh. We looked EVERYWHERE. Not her size. One foot fit fine, heel slipped out the other. argh. Argh. ARGH!!
Resorted to Payless for a pair of church shoes. Sorry, Payless, but due to previous experience, I doubt very much the sole will stay attached at the toe much past the first couple of wears.
Then to the far end of the mall for a last shot at Boscov's. At this point, we were in a huge rush, so quickly asked a sales lady where the shoes were. Off we go. Three (3) pairs of children's shoes. Sigh. On the way out, the same sales lady is passes us. "Did you find what you needed?" she asked. "Nope. Very few children's shoes there." "Try upstairs, they might have a few pairs in the children's department."
JACKPOT!!! A whole tableful on CLEARANCE! Yippeee!
Don't you just love the lining? Love, love love. (As I'm typing this, I'm watching "Eloise at the Plaza," once of my favorite, favorite, favorite children's books and the movie is fabulous. Julie Andrews as the nanny? Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.")
So, shoes in tow (toe?) we triumphantly leave the shop, share teriyaki chicken in the food court, then home.
