Look Ma, No Shoes!

Growing up in my parents' house (and living there after college) meant accepting certain rules. Some of the rules were easy to understand. I liked most of them. But the rule about taking your shoes off when entering always seemed stupid.

Until I moved out and started vacuuming my own apartment where I'd been trudging in and out with shoes on for a week. Guess what! New rule: no shoes in the house. Friends, feel welcome to bring slippers or extra socks--I'm not very good at turning on my heat. I have extra blankets. But you're not wearing shoes in my apartment.

I love being able to set my own rules.

And I really hate that my parents were right about something else.
