Last Minute Errands Yield Stress

Last night at 10PM on a last minute run to find a pair of brown 36"round smooth dress shoe laces, I went to 4 different locations, to no avail. How could all these locations carry only black dress shoe laces and sports laces? Is it too much to ask for them to carry brown? Why is it that when you need something the most at the vest last minute, you often don't find what you want? Doesn't it seem like the world is working against you in the worst way? I came home stressed and annoyed that I hadn't tried to do this errand earlier. I knew that I needed them for days, heck even weeks. But I put it off until the last minute and this is what I got.

Even now as I write this post from Bellevue, WA I still do not have the shoe laces that I need. Instead, I'm writing this post because I'm now 3 hours behind and am hell bent on making sure I get a post on my blog. Haha. I'm ridiculous.

Anyway, I'm going to try to find some shoe laces around here somewhere. I need to find where the shops are nearby. And if worse comes to worse, maybe I'll just get colored laces.

You might be asking yourself, why am I in Washington, and why do I need shoe laces? Well, I'm interviewing here tomorrow morning and then I'm back on a flight home. I need the shoe laces because they broke the last time I wore them, and I need to wear brown shoes with the attire I selected, navy blue pants, white button up, blue tie, brown belt.

I have an alternative. Black shoes. But I hate the way they look with the blue pants. I brought a black belt too, just in case.

I had wanted to pack a light as possible. But here I am with 3 pairs of shoes on hand. One on my feet and two in my carry-on luggage. I originally wanted to work out at the gym, but that would have required a 4th pair of shoes, and I wasn't about to go that far. The weight will have to be piled on for now. I have 2 belts in case I can't find the brown shoe laces. And I have a pair of brown and black socks for the same reason. I hate overpacking.

In my haste, I forgot to pack my daily medication and vitamins. I also forgot to bring a jacket for this cooler weather. I only have a fleece, but I would hate to have to wear it with my business casual outfit to the interview tomorrow. I'm hoping for lots of sun, but it's not a good start with clouds and fog right now. I suppose we'll see.

On the bright side, I have an opportunity that I hope turns up positive. Wish me luck. Thanks. (490)
