The current state of this blog reminds me of an ongoing predicament I have around this time of year, a little something I call Winter Feet. Winter Feet are those that go from early morning thermal socks (because it’s cold), to black dress socks (because, black boots), to gym socks (because you can’t exercise barefoot, I don’t think. Can you?), back to thermal socks (because, cold). And since WF aren’t regularly viewed by people other than one’s (unfortunate) spouse and oneself, they get neglected. And by neglected I mean this.
Anyway, the thing about Winter Feet is that, if you pull off your socks and really look at them, they make you feel like something has gone deeply wrong with your self-care. And while that might be true, it could just mean that you’re working on other things, things that seem more important (although I submit that something needs to change if, when tugging on tights, your heels and/or toenails end up ripping them. In that case, intervention time).
But about this blog. I realized the other day that this blog is like WF. It’s getting neglected in favor of other things because, right now, those things seem more important. However, like my poor WF, I can’t just keep ignoring it or I’m going to have to deal with ingrown toenails. Or, you know, something.
So while I will be holidaying my little heart out in the next couple of months, and eating, and writing tons of other things, and sitting too close to the fire, I’m also going to try to keep up around here. Consider this post as me trimming my toenails so things don’t get gross.
