When I last discussed some of my oddness with you all, there was something that everyone could relate to. I’m searching for someone that has the following problem. I said to Jenn last night I cannot be the only person with this problem.
When we got married I did not have cold feet. I did hyperventilate while walking down the stairs to the ceremony, but that was because I didn’t want it to end. I had spent months planning this wedding and I had no idea what to do with all that extra time when it was over. I definitely suffered from PWD (post-wedding depression).
But…that is the only time I didn’t want cold feet. I HATE having my feet warm. I hate it.
I hate wearing socks and it takes extremely cold temperatures before I wear them around the house.
I can’t sleep with socks on my feet.
Jenn always says she can tell when I am really sick because I’m in bed with my socks on.
I wear Crocs. They come with handy air-holes to keep the breeze alive and well between my toes.
I would like someone to invent the opposite of the Snuggie. A blanket with feet holes cut out.
Or even better…the opposite of a heating pad for me to put at the bottom of the bed where my feet are.
Yesterday I had several problems that highlighted my no warm feet problems.
We went to Costco and Jenn needed new socks. While browsing through the sock choices I saw these super thick woolen monstrosities that would have required a shoe three sizes bigger than your normal size and my feet had a panic attack. They couldn’t breathe. They felt suffocated. The idea of someone forcing them upon my tootsies was just….I can’t think of a word bad enough. It was bad enough that I removed my Crocs for a moment and put my feet on the cool concrete (ick) just to be able to survive the crisis.
Last night I threw a minor conniption fit because there were no cold feet spots. It was all warm. All warm and touching my feet. It was icky. Part of the problem was that we had house guests and I turned the heat on, because well, it isn’t polite to make your guests freeze their buns off just because you don’t like the heat. We did open both bedroom windows all the way, but our heater is powerful and that did not solve my hot feet problem.
The lack of cold feet spots sent my legs into a frenzy where they kick and flap around until the covers have been removed from my feet. This is not something that Jenn can sleep through.
I can’t begin to think of having the sheets tucked into the bottom of the bed. *Shudder* I’m going to have nightmares tonight even thinking of that.
Oh, and don’t get me started on crooked socks. If the toe seam isn’t lined up, the whole world hears about it.
