    Yeah, company regs. I prefer black and now it's mandatory. I found a website that actually had a decent selection for my size. Not great prices, but at least I can get them for under $150. This is after hunting for said page and said boots for 3 years. Seriously. I've needed a pair of steel toes since my TXDOT pair got destroyed 3 years ago. And now it appears.
    ETA: NEVERMIND.... I must've checked this site before. I dug through 4 pages of "small" boot sizes, and, after weeding out all the ones that didn't meet criteria (most of 'em failed because of size), I was left with 2 options.

    You've met my 3-month old?

    And a gripe: One of my clownfish found an opening at the back of the aquarium and I found him fossilized on the carpet. Poor guy. His girlfriend is swimming around like she's looking for him...

    Your 3-month old and I have a lot in common. Although, I've mastered "not pooping my pants" . . . .

    And my gripe . . . I know I'm not the bookkeeper, but that doesn't mean that all accounting mistakes are mine. I've just spent the evening going over my numbers and no, the mistakes aren't mine. But I really appreciate the suggestion that I take more time for myself . . . . I'll see where I can fit that in.

    Ditto. I think driving in general. Merging in front of you doing 20 miles an hour slower and then looking surprised when you're there. Yes, I know... my Red Saturn Vue is SOOOOOOO hard to see. :-/

    GoTD: Actually more of a daily gripe. My pregnant niece who eats crap daily and is already overweight. Every single gd day she is posting something on facebook about how she is eating this junk food or that. For example, Monday, she was wanting cheesecake so had to go to the grocery and get some, Tuesday, it was "oh how I love thee skyline", yesterday she had BK and God knows what today will bring. I wanted to put on her page, "Gestational diabetes much?" And see what she says. My husband told me not to do that and let her learn the hard way, like he did. Just wish I could beat some gd sense into her. There I feel better now.
