My mom and I were talking a while back about our efforts to economize. She said that dad wanted her to stop sending birthday checks to everyone but she wanted to continue with that tradition. I must say that with 5 children, 4 spouses and 14 grandchildren - those are a lot of checks to send out every year. But I am always so happy to see that check tucked inside my birthday card - even at my advanced age!
I also had a credit at DSW and with my new job requiring me to be on my feet, like my old job did, I knew that some new Merrels were in order. The ones I have now are about 7 years old and scuffed up. I wear them around the house but they are not suitable for wearing to work, so I have a new pair of these, too.
