Cold Feet

November 13th, 2012 at 06:02 pm

**I suppose I was incorrect. I mentioned that the boys could live in an igloo and I could sleep in an igloo. (I am mostly a cold weather whimp - but prefer to sleep in the cold - all bundled up of course).

This is mostly correct, except dh seems to be developing a "cold feet" problem with age. He has always had bad circulation to his hands - I suppose the same for his feet.

Last year he was really whimping out at night though we have *never* turned on the heat at night. I put a knit blanket at the foot of his side of the bed, because he kept complaining that his feet were cold. Wala - problem solved!

This year he got out the blanket, but it doesn't seem to be helping. So I got out a heating pad for tonight. He thinks he just needs to warm his feet before bed, and the blanket will keep them warm all night. In the interim, he may go wool sock shopping - something like that.

It's tough getting older!

---------------------------------------------------

In other news, today was lining up to be the *worst* possible day for jury duty (for many many reasons).

I was regretting saying it would be no big deal. HA!!

Somehow we dodged that bullet. I figured there was no way in heck dh would be called in tomorrow because it is a perfect day for it. What do you know - he got called. How did we get THAT lucky!?!

I have a web-based seminar from home tomorrow - and it's one that I don't need the full 8 hours credit for. (If I miss some time picking up kids and such). Granted, we also have a parent-teacher conference tomorrow which dh might have to miss. I guess there was something jury duty had to muck up!

Will see how it pans out...

{Oh - one thing we forgot was the kids get out of school at 1:00 all week. HA!}.

    I've had a problem for years with my feet and hands getting cold, while the rest of my body is just fine. It can be very frustrating.

    What luck with the jury duty timing. Smile

    My dad had knit slippers often seen at craft sales for 'sleep socks.' They were great because they were easily kicked off after an hour when they felt too hot.

    Well, last night he put on regular socks and that did the trick. Rolleyes It seems to me that would be the first thing you would do if your feet were cold (didn't realize he hadn't tried that yet). HA!

    Rolleyes , indeed. Thick wool socks help even more!

    I am thinking Christmas present from the kids!
