God Doesn't Want Me To Have New Boots

I have been kinda down this week. I'm not sure if it's all the impending holiday fuss, hormones, the fact that I don't have little people to share Christmas with, or the fact that I need a vacation from my life. Whatever it is I've been bummed.
Last night I was flipping through my Glamour (yes I read Glamour) magazine and noticed all the cute winter boots throughout the magazine. I love me some boots! I could wear them every day. What I really want are a pair of Uggs, but since I can't really justify spending $200 on boots right now I don't have any. I told all this to Spiderman, and he said "Hey, didn't we get a DSW gift card for Christmas from Spidermom last year?" Sure enough, we did and still had it. I checked the balance and found out it was a $50 gift card. Yea boots! I checked the DSW website to plot which pairs I wanted to try on. (I'm a very efficient shopper) All day today I was excited. I kept telling people about my great boot luck and even sang a happy boot song accompanied by a happy boot dance.
Then, when it was time to leave work, I walk outside.
Into this:Son of a Bitch.
I really wanted those boots.
But not enough to die for them as the roads are awful.
I guess I'll try again tomorrow.

Ok, you got me curious as to what these famous boots look like. You must post a picture after you get them. What a blessing to find the gift card to help out.
The snow picture looks like a Christmas card.

You let a DSW card sit untouched for nearly a year?? You've got skillz!

What does DSW stand for anyway? Yeah, brave the blizzard for no one, save Celine Dion. Hope yoru foot contects with a boot. (say that and make it rhyme to make it sound as corny as I meant it)

Funny how your mom mentioned Celine Dion...I am going to Indy Sunday to see her in concert...Hopefully it won't be snowed out....
