Flip Flop Failure!

Let me start by saying that I LOVE flip flops.  I seriously wear them almost every day in the summer.  They keep my feet cool.  They are easy to take off (because shoes really just aren't my thing for long periods of time).  And they are easy to slide back on when I need them. 

I used to always struggle with flip flops breaking.  The middle piece would pull out and I wouldn't be able to wear them.  Then I found a great tip online that you can use a bread tab to hold them in.  Now I never travel anywhere without a couple of those in my purse. 

But...bread tabs can't fix everything!  I had a little mishap while pushing Owen's wheelchair and the huge cart at Costco.  I kind of ran over my own foot with the cart.  And managed to slice my flip flop horizontally.  

I managed to finish shopping and checkout, but of course I didn't bring an extra pair of shoes into Spokane.  So after loading the car up with groceries and kids, we went to Wal-Mart.  While getting out of the car there, my last bread tab broke.  On the shoe that wasn't broken.  

So now I'm pushing two carts at Wal-Mart with all the kids, trying to get to the shoe section (all the way in the back of course!) and trying to keep my shoes on my feet.  I must have looked like a sight!  

I've never been so happy to buy a new pair of flip flops in all my life!  That was a crazy few moments!  But Praise the Lord, I made it!  If it weren't for that whole, "No shoes..." rule, I totally would have just run in barefoot.  (Smile). 

Ever have a complete flip flop failure in public?
