Busy day

Friday, January 11, 2013

It was a relaxing work day as it is my day of planning and strategizing for the next week. The relaxed feeling continued after work, except when it came to shoe shopping...

My bf and I are buying our Christmas presents for each other now as we needed to budget through out the holidays so we didn't go completely in debt. Well, he has also decided to start working out with me which means he needs a good pair of shoes. Shopping is tough with him. He doesn't like to try shoes on, if it doesn't look right he doesn't even want to think about it. He has large wide feet so this is tough. He would find a pair he liked and I'd tell him that they wouldn't fit right, as I do know a little about shoe...but he didnt' believe me. Well, guess what they didn't fit. I would point out shoes that I knew would be comfortable and fit well on his feet...he refused to try them on. Every pair he wanted to try on, he tried on and would get more frustrated b/c he hates shopping to begin with and I make him try things on. I finally convinced him to try one pair...he said they fit much better, but not quite right so I begged him to try on one more that I had picked out...guess what....they are are extremely comfortable and fit very well according to him. I tell you what..........................
.......

Anyway, it ended okay because he got those and then we went and bought him a 32 inch tv to be his computer monitor and a new keyboard and mouse, he is very happy now. :)

The day started and ended well....that is all I can ask for.
goodnight

    It can be so frustrating trying to help your S.O. shop, especially when it's something like shoes and when you know more about the subject... Glad it turned out good, though!

    You have to be a determined soul to shop with bf for new soles.

    My husband had long narrow feet and a couple of my male friends had long wide feet. We discovered they all found their large odd sizes through Mason Shoe Catalogue. Sorry about an advertisement and obviously large odd sizes can now be found more easily. But all 3 had no trouble ordering from a Catalogue, stress-free, requiring no in store shopping and trying on.
