I was recently given the opportunity to try out Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Cozy Cushions from Influenster. I was really excited when I opened my box to see them because who doesn’t like being more comfortable on their feet? The package states that the inserts are designed for added comfort, support and warmth and can be used in boots or shoes. They fit shoe sizes 6-10, which seems like it’s an adequate range of sizes to include. You have to cut the insert down based on your shoe size, but, as you can see, the lines for cutting each size are clearly marked on the bottom to ensure you get a comfortable fit. They’re also labeled for left and right so there’s no confusion about which one goes in which shoe.
I tried them out in my shoes and like the overall feel, but they aren’t the best if your shoes fit snug already. This depends on brands and such as well. My only pair of shoes right now are Pumas that I bought a few years ago. They don’t have insoles in them and fit snug, so the insole added a bit of bulk and pressed my foot up against the top of the shoe. As an insole they are really nice and have a lot of padding, but I’ll be waiting until I get a different pair of shoes to use them on a regular basis.
If you are friends with me on Facebook, you know that the front end of my truck got smashed in yesterday. I went to the farm where Randy works to get something out of his vehicle I needed. I parked behind his truck sideways, so I was in the barn driveway. He asks what I’m doing there, we say hey and they shut the door and go back to work. I open the rear driver door to adjust Trent’s carseat and I’m standing there and all of a sudden my truck starts moving backward while I’m next to it. I immediately jumped to the side and landed on the ground so I didn’t get run over(Ended up getting a pretty nasty scrape on my leg). I look and see that a huge feed truck backed right into the front of my Tahoe. I was shocked because HOW DO YOU NOT SEE MY HUGE VEHICLE THERE? He was shocked that he hit me and went to get Randy while I checked the kids. Randy walked outside and gave me a huge hug because I was crying. I cry very easily when I get upset, frustrated, etc.
It took a few minutes for me to calm down and then Randy’s parlor manager called one of the owner’s sons to come out. He came to find out exactly what happened and how. I’m so glad that I wasn’t hurt and didn’t end up getting pulled under the truck or anything. They’re paying for it to be fixed obviously and I am probably going tomorrow to get a quote on the damages. I’m estimating anywhere from 2-3k when all is said and done.
We’re currently living in our new house and loving it. We love all the space and the kids are enjoying it too. We like being in the country and I look out the windows all the time just because I can and don’t feel like I’m living in a box. The house was also taken off the market, which was a relief since it getting sold was not something we wanted to deal with. I’ve slowly been making it home. I painted the living room “Athenian Green” from some pinkish color and did the trim in brown. The carpets all need to come out downstairs because I don’t like them and WHO PUTS CARPET IN THE KITCHEN AND BATHROOM?
We got 2 new members added to our family in the middle of October when Randy, his mom and I drove to meet Angela and Bill to meet our 2 puppies, Chip and Sierra. They are so fun and playful and have definitely become members of the family. They have such unique personalities and I love watching them grow up and learn new things. They are very good tempered and even play with the ferrets, although I think Jasper and Dory like to instigate and try to get the dogs yelled at. They’re a little evil sometimes.
I’ve started hanging my Christmas lights (stop judging me I’m excited) and realized I’m like…. a million strands short of what I need to decorate. I need 2 or 3 more for the house, more garland and lights for the tree as well. We’re putting it in front of the large window in the kitchen. I bet I’ll be spending a good portion of the days after putting it up yelling at the dogs, kids or ferrets to stop touching or crawling under it. The ferrets will probably start climbing in it. We won’t know until a few weeks after Thanksgiving since I am ALL about real trees and we’re going to be cutting our own down like we did last year. It’s a lot more fun this year since Gracie understands more and is actually getting excited for it.
Maybe I’ll blog more often…. or not. I guess we’ll see.
