Growing up I got into the habit of taking of my shoes whenever I went inside. My parents are neat freaks and we never wore shoes in the house. Somewhere in our marriage J has picked up the same habit. However we are kind of lazy, so we never put our shoes away in the closet. That is too much work! So we line them in the hall right near our front door. We usually each have a couple of pairs out at a time, the ones we wear most.
Toady is one of those dogs that will sleep on anything that smells like us. I’ve found him curled up in our blankets, lying on our sweatshirts, in a hamper of dirty clothes, and even once he was sleeping on top of J’s empty backpack. He loves to be near us in that way. But his favorite place is on top of our shoes. I literally mean ON TOP of them. It never looks comfortable but it is his spot. One evening I even caught him with his nose INSIDE of J’s hiking boot. Seriously? What a weird animal. So I choose to take a picture of shoes instead of feet today in honor of Toady’s love to smell our stinky feet.
On a side note in case anyone was wondering…I did test today (10dpo) and of course it was a BFN. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit heartbroken. Don’t know if I will bother to test again unless I am late. I probably should have waited in the first place but I am an impatient person.
