Yesterday I had to take my Honda, Bruce Wayne, to get new shoes. Sexy black ones. The gentleman who helped me was pretty nice, and I really liked that he didn't lecture me about not getting my tires rotated. But that's probably because I tried my best to look contrite and said in my most serious voice, "Yes I will get them rotated every 5,000 miles I promise."
He believed me.
I probably should really try and do that, actually.
Anyway, I really didn't feel like hanging out in the waiting area, so I decided to be active and walk downtown. I did not plan very well.

Bad boys bad boys, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do when they COME FO YOU!
I thought the Vapor Gallery was a cute little tea room, but apparently (from my extensive 15 second google search) it's either an art gallery or a hookah lounge. My bad.
I turned around after 25 minutes because MY. FEET. HURT.
I could feel the blister on my right foot.
My purse was feeling heavy.
And did I mention my feet hurt?
It was the longest walk OF MY LIFE.
And that's really pathetic because I just mapquested the distance I walked and it wasn't even two miles total. Apparently I'm a huge wimp.

When I got back, Bruce Wayne was ready, and her shoes looked great! And they drive like a dream. Plus it was a lot more affordable than I expected. So, win-win.
Then later at home I decided to do my laundry before it got out of control. I don't remember the last time I could do all my laundry in just one load. Go me! And as I was walking back into the house look at what my bare feet almost stepped on.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a potato bug. Now, ok, I know that everything God created is beautiful and amazing in its own way, but I cannot see the beauty in a potato bug. WHY! Why are they here?? What do they do?? They are so gross.
I was feeling so lucky that I hadn't seen one of these guys in the 9 months I've been back, but apparently potato bug/Jerusalem cricket season is back in full swing.
If you read all of this it's probably only because you were really bored.
