Put a Sock On It…Goldilocks…


Jane CarrollI usually fall asleep fairly easily…except…when my feet are cold…and then…it just doesn’t happen…so…last night before I went to bed…knowing my feet were a little cool…Bertha…suggested that I put on socks…

Now…she may be my voice of wisdom…but…they are my feet…they weren’t that cold…which meant they’d probably get hot in the middle of the night…and the socks would have to be removed…yeah…I can’t sleep when my feet are too hot…either…

Yes…I know…I have Goldilocks feet…

Anyway…I went to bed…the sheets were cold…and…I couldn’t find a warm spot for my feet…I tried rubbing them together…I tried putting a pillow on them…but none of it worked and I wasn’t falling asleep…not only from the foot action…but from…Bertha… shouting…in her best Andy Griffith voice…just put some socks on

Finally…since I wasn’t getting any sleep anyway…I got up and…put on some socks…and…went right to sleep…

Of course…this morning…Bertha…said the whole thing reminded her of life…in general…and mine in particular…oftentimes there is such a simple solution to a problem…but…for whatever reason…I…waste time and resources trying everything else…before doing what I know I could have easily done in the first place…saving time and money…

Alrighty then…I’ve been busted…I would love to hear your experiences in the comments…and… while you’re there…be sure to click that little box to join the newsletter….you know you want to…

Coaching with Jane Carroll and BerthaPS…Yes…I had to take them off in the middle of the night…but at least I had been asleep until then…

    • We certainly are…I can’t believe how many hours I’ve wasted in my lifetime…talking to the people who can’t fix the problem instead of the ones who can…and trying to fix something every way but the one that would work. 😉 Glad I’m better now. 😉

  1. Sometimes we just talk about a problem but never think to ask for help. I was just writing about that this morning.

    As for warm feet, I’m with you…can’t sleep with cold feet and not crazy about wearing socks to bed. I just place a hot water bottle under the covers at the foot of the bed an hour before I crawl in. ~M

    • You are so right, Malana. It seems to be so easy to complain and so hard to actually take constructive action.

      Glad you’ve got your foot warmth figured out…I’ll have to think about that. 😉
