Mama Says New Shoes Are The Best Gift...

Today was New Shoe Day.

I've been experimenting with Zumba, but have since learned that you need special shoes to do it right.  My Nikes (I'm a Nike girl, back up off me in those Reeboks) catch on the carpet, and since I'm already seriously uncoordinated, this is a broken ankle just waiting to happen.  However, without shoes, my feet end up sore. 

Zumba has an online shop (of course, right) and special Zumba shoes at $75.  Of course, you can't use them for ANYTHING else, because they basically have no tread.  Nice.  Well, guess what.  At WalMart, I found Danskin dance shoes for $19.  So there you have it.  I'm ready to roll with my sparkly black treadless $19 shoes that I can't use for anything else.  We are on, bring it.

Thank you for your valuable input on the Zoe/Amanda situation, both to those who posted here and on FaceBook or via e-mail.  I feel less like a jerk now. 

And today - in my appropriate footwear - I'm the kind of person who gets some form of exercise every day.

Sigh.  I hate it when I pick something that actually requires EFFORT.  But I figure, I'm over 40...I eat too much saturated fat...I need to start taking better care of my heart.  So I will.  Sigh again.  I figure if I don't make a big deal out of this, and just DO IT, it will happen.

Your suggestions are welcome and encouraged.
