I can’t speak for all women, but for many of us, there’s something special about putting on a pair of high heels. Strapping on your favorite pair of heels has a way of making you feel particularly good. No, I know what it is! It’s a cool feeling of sexiness. That’s it. Heels instantaneously put a little more pep in my step and more of a feminine swag to my walk. Lol!
Today I found myself doing my laundry in heels. Say what? Yep!
Due to my passion for running, I am suffering from a foot condition (plantar fasciitis). To speed up recovery, my doctor told me to stop walking bare feet on the hard wood floors, stop wearing , flip-flops –my summer favorite, and to wear a shoe or sneaker at home that provides more support.
Last month, I started wearing an alternative shoe/sandal, but they don’t work; I’m still experiencing foot discomfort. I switched to sneakers, which helps; however, my running sneakers are grungy. In our home, shoes that are worn outside are not worn in the house. I can compromise and wear my sneakers on the main floor of the house, but I refuse to wear those nasty shoes upstairs in the bedrooms and the master bath.
They’re sandals so my foot can breathe. They have a little heel and they are extremely comfortable.
I slid on my sandals this morning and didn’t think much of it. Mom commented twice, “Hmm… you look nice!” “Hmm… You look really nice today!” Laughing to myself I thought, “What’s the big deal?!” Even hubby was taking second and third glances with eyebrows up.
When I saw a reflection of myself from the basement glass door carrying a laundry basket full of sheets and towels, I started cracking up. Not bad old girl! I thought, “When was the last time I laughed this hard or got this much attention from the family while doing laundry.”
Doing laundry is such a long and drawn out chore, but strutting through the house in my comfy heels is making the chore more enjoyable. I’ve decided to start a new trend at home—laundering in heels! At the top of my to-do list: Buy comfy sexy heels to do next week’s laundry. Lol!
