Hole-e shoes

I will admit that guilt is a big part of who I am...I'm working on it. Ok ok so I'm not a big shoe person. I have like 4 pairs of shoes and to be honest, I usually wear just 2 pairs. I'm all about comfort not style. Well, that and I don't really know how to walk in heels. Almost 2 years ago I had a really bad accident that involved stairs, my toys from work and twisted ankles. It was really bad! When I got up from the floor I walked to my car, I noticed I was not able to hyper extend my ankles(I was walking like a penguin). When I finally got in my car I felt such a relief and as I started to drive I felt like I was going to pass out because I had to extend my ankles to push the pedals. I had to make a stop at a local gas station and I called my family to come and pick me up because I was not able to drive anymore. My older brother is an athletic trainer at Fullerton community college and he was able to assess my injury and encouraged me to go to the emergency to get checked. It turned out I had really bad sprained ankles. It was difficult to put on tennis shoes and my work shoes did not fit so I had to buy new shoes that would fit and support my super swollen feet. The shoes I got were the best fit and I truly love the shoes. However, they were pretty pricey. For the past several months I have been on a very strict budget because I'm trying to move to Guatemala. It turns out that my wonderful shoes now have holes on each side and I decided to invest a little bit of money and buy some shoes for work. I got these cute sketchers and I wore them for 2 days and I returned them. I felt so guilty spending money on shoes knowing that there are so many people without shoes. That was sometime in September. It's December and the holes in my shoes were become more noticeable. I recently invested a little bit of money to get antennas for our television and my dad decided he wanted to get cable instead. I went back to get my money back from the electronic store and decided to get new shoes. I will be honest, they are still in the box.
