Okay… I’m one of those terrible people who typically wears one pair of shoes at a time.  Okay… more like 3… everyday shoes, gym shoes/sneakers, and barn boots.  I’m no shoe addict.  Anyway, I have a pair of LL Bean Walking shoes (they look something like this… but are last year or the year before’s model.)  I’ve been wearing them for quite a while.  I always double knot the laces.

Never had a problem with them coming untied.

Nathaniel doesn’t mess with them.

Lately, they come untied at least twice if not 4 or 5 times a day.  Last night they came untied at my break and lunch.  I have put different insoles in them- but changing insoles has never made a difference before.

I just smile and re-tie them.  I kid around that John’s messing with me.  Don’t know that I believe it.  I’d hope that if he was going to mess with me he’d pick a different way.  But it sounds good and I like to think that he’s still with me and watching over me.  Of course, he’d probably be so bored if he followed me around everywhere that he would resort to messing with shoelaces…

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
