Just keep moving, kids-


Evelyn and Lib both let me know that they loved 'Sit Down'. I think it's only natural that I follow THAT with 'The Only Way is Up.' Still working on my unending project, I worked on Holiday Gift exchange things last night, and worked on a UFO yesterday.

It's tax free weekend in Texas-which means back-to-school clothing is exempt from sales tax, and the malls are jammed. So I went shopping on-line. I bought shoes. Specifically, I bought MBT shoes. My little brother told me about them months ago-he said they were designed to get rid of his 'fat-ass'. Um, ok. I happened on them when I was checking out Naturalizer's sale earlier this week. I looked at them, looked at the promo clip, and waffled. I've been wearing Birks now for two years-I snap them up every time I find them on sale. But my feet hurt-I am on them all day. I looked at the MBT video. I asked Dean about his MBTs-do they work, does he wear them? "Um, they make me tired, so they must work."

I put the MBTs in my basket. I took them out. I got up to walk around the house. My metatarsals hurt when I went into the kitchen. I put them back in. And pressed 'Buy.'

I too am a long time Birk wearer. However, I've recently learned their negative heel causes problems for some folks. For alldayonyourfeet comfort, try Dansco Professional Clogs.- pricy, but well worth it. I know several Chefs, doctors, and nurses that all swear by them. I wear mine when ever I have lots of walking. I've even bought the dress shoe verson to wear with dresses.--ScullyKnits

Ok, I will keep an eye out for Danskos. I don't know how the construction differs between models, but Sierra Trading Post usually has them.

Grace, I bought a pair of black Sports. We'll see.
