The Holy Grail of Shoes

As normal, my weekend will be chaotic

Tomorrow starts with volleyball at 10:00 following with Alex’s fashion show at 2:00.  She is a model in an American Girl Fashion Show being held as a fund-raiser for the children’s museum.  Unfortunately the museum and the fashion show are about 40 minutes away from our house.  And since she informed me after practice last week that she was all sweaty we have to squeeze a bath in there somewhere.  And add in picking up Grandmas.  Yep…chaos.

The boys are loving every minute of it.  They love their baby sister but for them attending this fashion show would be a fate worse than death.  We aren’t mean enough parents – we’re allowing them to stay home.  Since they have worked their tails off at track it’s probably good for them to have a day to recover.

Anyway I digress…

I went out for my lunch to find Alex a pair of white sandals.  It’s the only part of the outfit the children’s museum doesn’t provide.  And with Easter only a couple of weeks white sandals should be in abundance, right?

Wrong!

I guess the “in” color this year is silver. 

Granted I only had the chance to look at one store but it’s one of those stores you would guess would have them.  My outlook at finding them tonight looks bleak, especially with club track this evening that I really can’t miss.  With the “second job” taking a momentary downswing I was hoping for a night to relax.  I have a copy of Catching Fire on the bookshelf begging me to read it – no better night than tonight to start.

Well, as they say…no rest for the wicked.
