Several years ago, I had a love. A true, deep, profound love. A love for a pair of black hightop Sketchers. I looooooved those shoes. I wore them into the ground. When it was time to replace them, I discovered a painful problem - Sketchers stopped making that particular style. i couldn't find them anywhere.

There were many tears shed over this realization. There was much pain involved.

Today, Mom and I managed to make our way out of the house via the bus. We went to the mall, and wandered around from there. In one of the department stores, I glanced at the Sketchers' stand, and, lo and behold, there they were! Brown, not black, and with a slight change in style, but still, they were there!!!

My love has returned once more. And all was right with the world.

Well, ish. Schools are closed tomorrow again (wusses!!!), so the paycheck suckage continues. But I'll be in Everett this day week, and if I'm lucky I'll be shopping with Erin this time tomorrow. I won't have a ton of money with which to shop, but I'll have enough to get a couple of little things. 'Twill be good overall, methinks.

And I have my Sketchers again. Huzzah, I say!

I have a pair of Corcoran II jump boots that I got about 10 years ago in the Army, that I finally had to retire, because I could see daylight through them.

Fortunately they're a lot easier to find than black hightop Sketchers, on the other hand, most places civilians can get them tend to gouge you on the price - when I was still in the Army, they were $30-40 cheaper on base than through the civilian wannabe catalogs.

Still, they're the best boots I've ever owned, so I may have to just bite the bullet, and just go ahead and buy a new pair. If you ever want a good pair of combat boots, I'd recommend those, hands down.
