Spring sale

I got in yesterday’s mail my REI catalog announcing their big spring sale (20% off most full priced items). Up until now, I have bought something from this sale for at least the past 6 years. I’ve browsed the website for the past hour, and found zilch, zip, nada. Oh, the tragedy of it all.

The closest to anything I want, but don’t need are the Keen Seattle Shoes, a Mary Jane style shoe with the famous Keen front toe bumper. I tried them on about a year ago and really, really liked them. I just forked out tonight a 6-month advance on my gym membership near work and saved myself $20/month.

My life as a mini-Imelda must end. Mortgage payments will soon begin.
