Writerly Things…6/4/17

Traci Kenworth


We went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It was an enjoyable movie. I had my reservations but I like how they wrapped everything up and I like the two new additions to the cast. This is perhaps my favorite since the first movie.

Graduation. A day that proved a long haul this year. My son struggled throughout his school years due to a learning disability and also speech problems. Sometimes, I didn’t know if this day would arrive, to be honest. But it’s here and I couldn’t be prouder.

I just wished my darn shoes fit! Every time I must do a dress-up because I’m diabetic, my feet swell and I can’t get the top of my foot to fit in the pretty sandals I pick out for the occasion. Just once, I’d like to not have to rely on beat-up, comfortable shoes and could go a bit fancy!

My feet issues aside, this is a joyous day! GamerGuy is ready to get on with his life. I tell him the road will not always be smooth, but family is what makes it worth it.

How has your weekend gone? Have a great week, take care, and God bless!

  1. I don’t have diabetes but still have shoe issues! I have NEVER been able to wear those gorgeous strappy high heels the hot girls wear. Too broad (code, too fat) feet. So don’t sweat it hon. Comfort will always win the day. Just imagine if a zombie apocalypse had broken out at graduation. Who’d have the last laugh? You, running easily in your flats? Or all the tweeny girls getting munched on? 😊

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed the movie. I had reservations, too, until I read your post. Maybe I’ll give it a shot.

    I have type 2 diabetes and I feel your pain re the shoe thing. My feet don’t swell but I have ingrown toenails and those cute shoes, especially enclosed toes, just don’t work on my feet anymore. My feet are also wide and flat, so none of the sassy ones feel right. At my age, I figure comfort’s more important than looks. And who needs to twist their ankle when a heel pops off? Just makes you easier zombie bait. 🙂

  3. Nice post! Can understand the foot issues. Since I had foot surgery I had to give or throw away most of my shoes. Can’t wear heels that are more than two inches high or my feel become crippled. I have a wedding to go to and bought pretty strappy shoes with two inch heels. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can make it through the night. Last wedding I was in pain and had blusters. Can’t wear those shoes any more and they were comfy and sensible. Sneakers don’t go with dressy dresses. Oh well! Stay upbeat and comfy! Blessings to you too. Just keep laughing! What else can you do? LOL! 😘
