So I had this brilliant & witty idea for a blog post this morning while taking the FarmHands to school...and then I sneezed. Now I have no idea what my name is.
Instead I have a question for you all: What is your stance on shoes in the house? Do you wear them? Do you allow them? Do you encourage them? What about house shoes?
I refer to Husband as the Shoe Nazi. He cannot abide the kids wearing shoes in the house. Occasionally he loosens up for company, but if you're going to be here any length of time & you're under the age of 75 you'd better have bare feet.
Me, I'm not as picky about it. If your shoes aren't covered in mud or animal feces, you're good to go. I, personally, am nearly always shoeless. I don't like to wear shoes if I don't have to. In the winter I will rock a pair of house slippers because I'm prone to cold feet, but they get packed away about mid-April not to see the light of day until the first good frost in October.
I know it has a great deal to do with how we were raised. QM didn't want us wearing shoes in the house when we first moved to TN because the carpet (and house) was brand new. After a few years she gave up that battle & hasn't picked it up since.
MIL on the other hand is adamant about her shoesless policy (among other things). In part because she's a bit of a germaphobe & in part because they have cattle & no one wants to scrub manure off their carpets.
So, what's your shoe policy?
