I think I need a holiday

This morning when I was about to leave for work I almost had a heart attack. I couldn't find my favorite Bally shoes. The past week the roads in our area are being resurfaced and that means strangers are free to walk up and down the street. We live in a private and guarded area so we never close our gates, one because we don't have those electric remote control gates and two, it rains almost everyday nowadays so I hate to get myself wet while opening the gates, which I will if we keep them closed.

Imagine me not finding my shoes. I shrieked and asked frantically to my husband if someone had entered into our compound and took my shoes from the shoe closet. Hubby was as scared as me, but more for fear of our house being trespassed more than anything else obviously. I frantically ran to the store room. Looked in the Bally boxes, no black heels in sight. I was already hyperventilating. Ran to the patio and raided the shoe closet there. Opened my gardener's storage/closet. Didn't find them there too. I was already close to tears and ready to call in sick. I ran back to the store inside the house and looked in EVERY box. And there they were, my Bally heels. Tucked safely in a Nine West box. What was I thinking keeping shoes astray from their rightful box?

Why did I react this way today? Could it be because dear Ruby wrote a tragic post of missing shoe collection and that I totally feel her pain? After the bad days at the office I wasn't prepared for more in my private life.

I keep forgetting things nowadays. I need a holiday. Or maybe a shrink.

Le sigh. I am so glad you found your Bally shoes. And, I am so sorry it took me so long to find this post. You didn't show up in my google reader until today.

I am so sorry work has been so hard. I have a shrink but I have no shoes. I am still in shock about is and cannot really belive it. Ugg!

I am so happy to see you blogging.
Much love,
Ruby

I'm so glad you found your shoes! I would have freaked out too. I hope you can get a vacation soon - or at the very least, a stress-relieving shopping trip!

Ruby: No worries, my dear. That's blogosphere punishment to me for taking up space and not being a regular contributor, LOL! I'm relieved I found those shoes or else I would refer myself to a psychiatrist - FOR REAL.

I am very, very sorry about your shoes. I hope those who had the bad intentions in this game develop Bunyion feet. Karma.

I hope I have more to write, thank you for the encouragement. Love you lots.

ACs Cath & Lar (err wish I knew which one of the amazing two wrote heheee), you wouldn't believe how relieved and thankful I was when I found them. Angels were singing with me :D. We're now planning on going for a short local getaway in December up north, and I had heaps of fun shopping over the weekend, though I didn't find any nice shoes...

H: Oooh... I just had a blogosphere accident there replying to your post...

I agree it's silly, and to think that I was much calmer when I was in an accident 4 years ago, but shoes, they're a different story altogether, honey!

I sort of know how you feel, I have those frantic moments often before I leave for work and I realize I'm missing something like my mits or I can find the coat I want to wear. I hate that especially when I try to be as organized as can be the night before. This always leads to an bad or average day.
I'm glad you found your shoes, and stay safe xx
