today was a much better day. i medicated early as a message to my body “don’t start nothing won’t be nothing” and it worked. whenever i felt like i was spiraling into something i didn’t want to be in, i told myself that i was fine and everything was okay. mind over matter today.
nothing eventful happened today (or any other day) other than the shoes i ordered on december 28 finally arrived via fedex smartpost. that’s code for pony express.
i lusted after these shoes for weeks – wasn’t thrilled with the price and the heel is 3 inches – before i got the nerve to purchase them. the site was offering 20% off at the time so i said what the hey, closed my eyes and clicked the place order button. i thought i would have them within a few days but it took forever to get them. maybe i didn’t place the order and dreamt that i did. i logged into my account to view my purchase history and it showed that a recent order was made in december of 2012. okay i’m not going crazy.
so what took them so long? fedex smartpost takes 2-8 business days and is finally delivered, not by fedex but by a postal carrier. they should remove the name fedex from that delivery option. when i see fedex, i think next day or two days tops, there was nothing fedex (fast) about my order. whatever! i didn’t pay for shipping, but at least i now know not to expect them for at least two weeks after ordering. to be fair, there was a holiday thrown in there, but i bet first class mail would have been faster.
the jury is out on which pair to keep, i bought two. the navy narrow pair seen here and a brown medium pair, both size 10. the navy fits my foot better as my feet are very narrow, but the brown pair feels more comfortable for wearing all day, but there’s a half inch gap around the heel and an open space around the arch. not sure what which pair is a better fit, but i’m leaning toward the navy.
