Don't get West Nile

Today my mom called and warned me to be very careful because West Nile virus was becoming very prevalent in TX. (Actually we've had quite a few cases this year already).

I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to be careful. It's not like I can tell the mosquitos "hey, before you were just annoying, but now you might kill me, so how about you stay away for a few months."

I suppose bug spray is an option, but that never works. Really, I should be more scared of the tiny little fire ants that rome the garden. Little shits.

Either way, it's now made the weekend list.

1. Sleep In
2. Tend Garden
3. Don't get West Nile

So much to do, so little time.

And that's why you shouldn't be responsible

A few days ago I headed over to and picked out a few new pairs of heels to try out, including these:

cute, right?

Anyway. Since I had just gone though this whole "pick out 5 pairs of running shoes and try them all on for a few days until I find one I like" adventure, I decided that I wasn't going to place my zappos order until I got the money back from the 4 pair of shoes I had just sent back to (also free shipping both ways BTW).

So I waited, and since I'm so bad about getting to the post office, I finally just got the box out yesterday afternoon. You could argue that I still haven't gotten my money back, but since my going to the post office was the long pole in that return, I considered it close enough.

I placed my order on zappos this morning.

But much to my dismay those cute shoes were no longer on sale. Instead they went from $64 back up to $79!

$15. That almost made me reconsider. Almost. But not really.

And that's why you shouldn't try to be responsible. Cause it'll just cost you an extra 15 bucks.
