we have a new member of the family. his name is goldie. yes, he's a betta and not a goldfish, and yes it's a he not a she.
nana and sadie went to petco today and got him, and sadie is over the moon thrilled with her new pet!
here are the two friends together tonight. she kind of enjoys tapping his bowl and watching him swim around frantically, and she thought he needed a graham cracker for a snack this afternoon, but he seems to a resilient fish, so i'm sure were fine ;)
and in other news, i had a mortifying shoe experience today. i had finished tanning (yes i know it's bad for my skin but i'm leaving for florida in 4 weeks and refuse to be pale), and was putting my clothes and shoes on when my shoe broke. it was a pair of wedges with just one strap across the toes. i tried and tried to stick the strap back into the sole of the shoe, but it was NOT working, so i had to walk out of the tanning place with ONE SHOE ON! how embarrassing, but not only that, i had other errands to run, so i had to walk across traffic to the nearest shoe store with one wedge on and the other foot bare. besides the fact that i was so embarrassed about walking around with only one shoe, the pavement was burning the sole of my foot. and i was talking to myself saying "this is so mortifying. my feet are burning." and turned around to see a girl walking behind me. so not only was i the crazy lady with one shoe, but i was the one shoe-d crazy lady who talks to herself!!
thankfully, i found a pair of metallic madden girl adorable sandals on clearance for $15.99, so it turned out to be a happy ending!
