Working Shoe?

Does this really look like a "work" shoe to anyone? This pump is listed online at Nordstrom under their "Working Shoe" category. Even when I was say 30, I wouldn't have been able to wear this shoe all day, much less now at 43. Oh well, I will find something a bit more sensible. I can't believe I just said that, but truth be told my feet are bad from too many back flips off of cheerleading pyramids while barefooted. I know, young and stupid.
Those who know me may be asking why I would be looking for a comfortable work shoe when my feet have only really known my sequined and beaded flip flops for the last few years. That is because I am going back to work.
Despite the economic down turn the pharmaceutical industry continues to have problems and plenty of money to fix them. So off I go on a consulting job out in California. Actually, hubby and I are rotating every two weeks back and forth until June. I am excited but also nervous about leaving my little one. When I am gone she will be with her Daddy and she will have the best time. Don and I will swap roles and he will get to be house Dad while I am out working. It will be an adjustment for all of us but I think a really good change. I will continue to blog and share some of my experiences while I am away. So wish me luck.

I certainly DO wish you luck! I actually like the shoe..lol It is wonderful that hubby gets to switch rolls and spoil the little one. What ever works out for you both is a blessing. Enjoy your quiet time and miss the little one. (oh, yes, and that sweet man of yours)
Blessings this week of travel. Be safe,
Sharon

I know this will be just great. You'lll work hard, get your feet wet, and experience new things. And remembe, it's not forever. Anything is do-able when you have an end date! As for the shoe, it gorgeous, but way too high for us old gals!! I can't even wear sneakers these days- someday I'll get the darn foot fixed. In the meantime, off to the hospital to get my PPD read- ugh.
