Today I had to remove a pair of shoes from the closet and place them in the going-to-Goodwill box. They were perfectly good shoes, still functional, perhaps just not in frequent rotation anymore. They were released from service because… well, because I needed the room for my new shoes. But, now my shoe closet* is full. The shoe racks are full, at capacity, no more vacancy. I have informed T that he is to remind me of this the next time I talk about shoes. That I will seriously have to get rid of shoes if I want to bring more home. It’s a sad day. Obviously I need a bigger house.
* Yes, I have a shoe closet. I took half of the closet in the dining room and hung shoe racks on the wall. Then I ran out of room so I bought a standing shoe rack from Target (similar, but the poles are rough to give more friction) for the sneakers and and flats and non-heeled shoes. And after all that, I have run out of space. Stop judging me.
