A moment of silence...  
...for my sixteen year-old character shoes. The heel broke last night during one of the hundred times we did the butt-slapping number.

They were like old friends. But the arches had fallen, the straps mended more times than i can count, and they've been resoled twice. It was time. They've had a good life, after all.

My new ones shipped yesterday, and should be here in time for next week's rehearsal. But I'm all cranky about having to have new ones. I'll have to break them in. *nose wrinkle*

Update: 10 lbs total loss, Daniel fast going well, every muscle in my body is screaming and I'm deliriously happy. :D

RIP character shoes.

Good for you on the 10lbs loss!

every muscle in my body is screaming

That sounds like me after I run, and I've been running 5 days a week for several months now! I think my body doesn't like it, but my mind is happy I'm losing weight. :)

I love the new layout. ♥

Awww poor shoes! That sucks! I get connected like that to my shoes too - but then, I don't have a ton of shoes so when that favourite pair of dark red Doc Martens gave up the ghost I CRIED!!

Congrats on the losing poundage. Good luck for more! And yay for being deliriously happy - your dedication amazes and astounds me. ;)

Farewell, old shoe friends! I'm glad they served you well. You've earned a new pr of character shoes after 16 yrs, I think. *g* Surely they (and you) have had many glorious moments on stage / in rehearsal / at home.

Ten lbs?!?!? You go, girl. You're an inspiration, for real.

Poor shoes. They had a good run. :(

Congratulations on the weight loss! That's fantastic. ^_^

Congrats on the weight loss! :D

Those shoes do look a little sad. Replacement is probably your only option.
