and I’m already in bed. A bad cold virus and/or flu has been running rampant over the last month. Remarkably, I’ve stayed relatively healthy while everyone around me has been dropping like flies. Relatively healthy that is until I woke up yesterday morning with “IT”. Actually, compared to the symptoms others have been dealt, I think I’m getting off a bit easy with what I think might just be a head cold. However, my sinuses are screaming, my eyes won’t stop watering, and I can’t breathe out of my nose. It could be a lot worse based on what’s been going around, but still, I am tired and I don’t like it.
I have worn out another pair of workout sneakers and went on the hunt for another pair this week. Zappos.com is my go-to place for shoes with literally thousands of shoes in their inventory and free next day shipping and returns. I love Zappos. Anyways, I found a couple pairs of Adidas I liked. I have found Adidas fit my foot the best so I usually start there. I ordered both pairs in two sizes and they arrived the next day. I am generally a size 8.5 in shoes, sometimes going up to a 9 with certain brands or styles. With the Adidas, I’ve consistently worn an 8.5. I liked both pairs that came so my choice was going to come down to fit. I tried on the pink and gray shoes, 8.5 and couldn’t even get it on my foot, so went to the 9. I could get them on, but they weren’t terribly comfortable. I went to the blue pair, and started with the 9 this time. Those shoes were too big, and so were the 8.5s. After all said and done, I returned all 4 pairs and exchanged them for a size 8 in the blues, which fit perfectly. And I can’t remember if I’ve ever worn an 8. To a point, I get that there isn’t universal sizing with shoes and clothes across brands, but I was a surprised that the same brand differed so greatly.
The main character of a book I’m listening to right now had the following quote, “I was born at 5:14 on a Tuesday morning and because of that I always thought of myself as a morning person.” Having been born at exactly 11:00am on a Sunday and NOT being a morning person, there may be something to that theory.
I love paper, so I this will be my next local field trip…
Have a great week.
