I am definitely feeling older this year. From my eyes down to my feet. If you had asked me last year, I would have said I felt like I did at 25, but this year...Remember the Fun Monday we showcased our fav shoes and some of us, toesies? Well, last night I had a "Duh" moment. Since the spring, when official flip flop season starts in my house, I've had sore heels. They were sore to the touch, really tight feeling when I stood after sitting for a spell, just plain sore ALL the time. I thought maybe I had injured them exercising or something. Or maybe my shredded ACL had something to do with it.
My massage therapist helped a lot but the relief only lasted a day. Coming from a family of hypochondriacs, I had already diagnosed my problem and was gearing up for all sorts of treatments. Being a procrastinator, I haven't acted on these impulses to fix the problem.
The weather has been cooler and about a month ago, I put away the flops and pulled out the winter shoes. Last night I realized, my heels no longer hurt. Hmmm. It's amazing what a good pair of shoes can do for your feet. I'm going to miss my flip flops. A moment of silence, please.
