When I decided to do a quick paced class and call it "8 page Round Up," Kevin said, "You need a hat and pair of boots." I thought new boots sounded like a fun way to "get into" the mood. A few weeks later, I saw some adorable "cowgirl style" boots while visiting my SIL in Washington. The store at the mall had them in two colors, brown and red. Both were cute, but the red ones spoke to me. Unfortunately, it seems they were saying "sorry no size 6."
No big deal. I'd find a great pair of boots somewhere. Only one little problem - I don't really shop. I used to shop - almost every day. My friend Jaime and I were shopping pros (well she was the pro and I was the beneficiary of her skills.) Now that we live thousands of miles apart - she is still the skilled mall shopper - I am more of a skilled Internet surfer.
I thought I was doomed. Here I am just a week away from my first class, I still don't have boots! Okay, so they aren't exactly a classroom necessity but... do I really need to explain the desire for a pair of red boots? ...and I am way too busy to go on a store to store search. Of course, I am a skilled Internet surfer. There are hundreds of boots for sale on the Internet.
Today I discovered Zappos.com. They are fabulous - So many shoes - and boots and they ship them really fast! ... and best of all, they had the same red boots I saw months ago - AND in size 6!
So, if you decided to join me for "8 Page Round Up" - may be I'll be wearing these:
