A solidier returns from Iraq to see his sister graduate high school. It just hits ya, right there.
It's Memorial Day Weekend. And I think of all the solidiers who are away from their families and loved ones at the start of the summer. I think of all the soldiers who will never return to their families and loved ones, who will never enjoy another summer.

We should all be able to agree that the minimum wage isn't enough money to support a family. It just isn't. I'm not sure it's enough money to support one single person.
AEN used to tell me I shouldn't shop at WalMart; I disagreed. Almost every retailer treats their employees without consideration. If I stopped shopping at WalMart - what would happen to their bottom line? I won't lie though, I felt guilty picking up my Gatorade, stockings and Tide. I knew that the employees who were ringing up my random purchases didn't have a chance at the good benefits I enjoyed.

It was glorious to be around so many friends -- great friends who have seen you grow up and are still waiting for the day when you decide to actually be a grown up.
I also had a very interesting experience in Orlando. I walked around Lake Eola in a beautiful formal gown, that my dear friend had the genious to pick out... I walked around Lake Eola in the moonlight. And I have not stopped giggling.
Hence, the flats.

So, today - when I realized I had to buy new shoes for a series of upcoming events, I was overjoyed. Until I started looking...
Let me tell you, save for Anthro, there are no flat sandals to be had. I think I'm going to scope out Main & Taylor tomorrow, if I can escape for a while. This might require a trip to Kicks.
Why, you might ask, am I looking for flats? This, from a girl who prizes her 3"+ heels? Tee hee hee.

Well, we decided we needed a vacation. Neither of us have been on a real vacation in years. She, as a hardworking student, and me, as a poor N4P gal, had missed the opportunity for vacation. We both realized we desperately needed some beach time.
Of course, between the weddings and Miss California's upcoming move, the summer is rather booked up. So, we've decided to make a Labor Day - Last Days of Summer - visit to the 'Bama shore.

So, this morning - I grabbed The State, the AJC and the NYT off the rack at the local Publix and promised myself that I would read them front to back. That didn't quite happen. But here goes...
