I Do This Thing

I noticed something in a picture taken at dinner the other night.

I am doing that weird thing with my feet.

When I'm sitting somewhere I rarely put my feet flat on the floor. I tried it just now and YEP it felt really foreign. A few months ago when I spent a lot of time in the recliner nursing Emmy, I had noticed that I always turn my feet so that mostly just the outside edges are touching the floor. I can't quite pin down why I do it. There are two major possibilities in my mind.

1. Feet flat on the floor means I am totally relaxed and at ease. I'm just not naturally relaxed and at ease. Usually a tad of uptightness going on. I'm sure that makes NO sense to you...but it makes sense to me.

2. Mostly when I was younger I could not walk with flat feet on a wet or slightly wet floor. It felt SO gross and dirty to me. Waterparks, getting out of the shower, rec pools, etc...I would kind of walk with the smallest area of my feet touching the floor as possible. This was usually the outside edges. I am wondering if this is the remnants of that.

Do you have any quirks like this? And on a scale of 1 to crazy how nutso am I?

You're not weird at all. I can't sit or sometimes even stand when I'm barefoot without curling under my toes. Josh thinks I'm a little strange for that, but to me it's comfortable.

Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog :) I check in on you guys a lot, but i'm bad at commenting....

I don't think you're weird...if i said you were, that would mean i'm weird too!! I do the sideways foot thing, but usually only with ONE foot. Sitting or standing! I was pigeon-toed as a toddler, so i wonder if that has something to do with mine?! I've also notieced i do strange things with my fingers.

Hopefully i'll get to see you guys in a couple weeks...even if its just for a quick jeni's run! :)

You're not weird, I rub my feet back and forth in my sheets at night to fall asleep...every night. It is something I have done for as long as I can remember.

Ha ha ha! Now I'm going to be self-conscious about doing that because I KNOW I do! I'm excited to see you guys in ten days!

I cannot stand to have bare feet. I wear socks 90% of the time. If it were socially acceptable i would wear socks with sandals. Gotta love those quirks!!
