How to Beat the Monday Morning Blahs

I finally got the second batch of Blue Faced Leicester Navajo plied, washed and skeined. I am thrilled with the result! Now if I could just figure out how to skein neatly. I am eager to cast this on for socks to see if really is as nice as I think it is.
I am not sure which I am more excited about, though - great handspun or new Birks! The mailperson brought these this morning only 2 1/2 weeks after I ordered them from Germany. I really NEEDED some new ones after last spring's episode between my shoes and Kai the brat.
I really have no idea what I am going to wear with the pink ones, but I thought they were just too cute not to buy. One thing is for sure - Kai will not be allowed near them.

I think my husband knows I ordered them. Either way I can already hear him heavy sigh when he gets home from work. Guys just do not get women and shoes. He has a pair of brown shoes and a pair of black shoes and a pair of runners for all the other times. Pink shoes will have him scratching his head.

No they don't understand shoes! I remember moving and my boyfriend helping me. He looked in the box and said "Are all of these shoes?" "Yes." "How many are in here exactly?" "I think 23 pairs last time I counted...and I have a couple or 5 pairs to Goodwill last week." "WHAT! How can you have 23 pairs of shoes?!"

Yeah, they don't get it.
