Free the Feet

Leave a comment

As I was standing in the shower I found myself looking down at my feet. I could see they were smiling. They, like me hate this time of year so to be out and showering in the warm water was a treat. For this time of year they are covered with socks and shoes and boots and blankets and slippers. They rarely see the light of day.

As I see the Spring training videos of temps in the 80’s and sunny in Florida my feet struggle to escape the confines of socks and shoes. It won’t be long now till we are wandering around in bare feet again. The way I like it. Sometimes we get dressed up and put some flip-flops on. Like when the sand is too hot. But otherwise I’m so looking forward to this barefoot season.

Thankfully today is the last long day of the work week. The next few should be normal. Then again there is no normal when you work holidays and weekends and nights. The only normal is abnormal. But I adapt well.

Looks like I didn’t miss out on the seasons snow pictures completely. I got a chance this Wednesday to grab a few frames. But first I have a Tuesday to power through. Looks like were going to cut sleep short a bit this week.

Actually sleep has been one of my successes this year. I’m staying in bed for 6 hours each night. That’s another hour or two a night I’m getting some good rest. I feel better mentally, my attitude more positive.


Random Thoughts of the Day

I’m so sick of the chaos this country of mine is in.

I wish my better half was feeling better.

I can’t stop thinking about our family expanding.

Time to crank up the grill this weekend.
