When I enter a house (or my office) I usually remove my shoes. The same goes for my own place. I just like not wearing shoes. It’s a thing.

At least where my house is concerned, something has got to change. This morning I had to wash the kitchen floor three times to get rid of the dirt that my bare feet track in there. The section around the stove, fridge and prep area was particularly nasty and required me to get on my hands and knees and scrub hard for half an hour.

So there’s a new rule in my household: no going barefoot in the kitchen. I am not dealing with that kind of a mess again. To make it easier to hold to the new rule I bought myself a pair of knockoff Crocs{.broken_link}. These are now the designated kitchen clogs and they’re required to stay in that room. Considering how much time I spend on my feet in there this purchase is probably way overdue. Anyway, we’ll see how long it is before I start ignoring my new rule. The next time I start grumbling about the condition of the floor in there you’re all allowed to direct me to this post and say, “You told yourself so.”
