I have not wear socks for about two days now. I think my feet are getting use on being cold now and I have not really touch our thermostat since October. Why don't I wear socks, you ask? Well, since fall and colder temperature came, I started to wear two pairs of socks to keep myself warm. Furthermore, I set my thermostat on 55° F to save on electric bill. And we all know that human sweats and that was what happen to my feet. It happens mostly at night when I have layers of blankets over them. In addition when I take a shower after drying them with a towel I put my socks right away to warm me up. Not very healthy in my part, I know. Over the weekend my feet started to itch and had a little smell. I know right away I had to do something, I rinse them, dry it with a towel and blow dry it. I did not put socks until I have to get out of the house. Until now I only wear socks when going outside and I put some foot powder inside the socks.

The last time I had an athlete foot was when I working in the restaurant. It happened in the winter months too. I bought a brand new work boots with padding inside. Little that I know my feet can't breathe and only get air out when I get home from work. It was pretty bad that the bottom of my feet started having holes in them and very itchy. Thank goodness for foot powder, I also had to buy a new pair of work boots with no padding. I hardly wear the padded boots anymore and I still have it collecting dust in my closet, and saving it for rainy days just in case I can't afford to buy footwear with our economy nowadays. Oh yeah, if you are interested about foot care, please check the foot care directory.

Moreover, why some people have flat feet? I thought it was only an urban legend until I met one. A lot that I know.

I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
