This morning, my palms were itching, so MWG said "That means you are going to get some money." I made him go check the lottery numbers, but alas - we did not win. But guess what? You know the conference I had to go to for grad school? Well, I applied for a grad school travel award and when I got home, I had an acceptance letter that said I was going to get $300! Woo-hoo! That does not even cover my airfare, but at least it helps. So my itchy palms were right.
Not too long ago, I blogged about boots that I want. Just for fun, I went to zappos.com to see if they had any deals. And they had THE EXACT PAIR that I identified as my favorites on sale for half-price! (The ones with the butterfly.) They were the ONLY pair that were on sale for half-price, so I took it as a sign and bought them. (I justified it with the idea that I will carry my old Coach purses for one more season instead of getting a new one like I really really want to do.) They arrived today. I ordered a 9.5 because that is what I wear. They fit but fit exactly.... so I'm wondering if I should exchange them for a 10? I haven't worn a pair of boots since the lime green ones I had in 7th grade, so I don't remember if they stretch? Any advice? So far, MWG says I should exchange them, because it is always better for shoes to be a little big - I could always wear big socks. (And since I've already had ONE bunion surgery, I'm inclined to agree with him.) I guess I should go down to Allen's and try on a 10.
Still procrastinating, but since a paper is due tomorrow night by midnight, I must get started.
