Hi,

I would really like it if we could keep this on topic. It wastes time to come see a new message that has nothing to do with the topic.

Thanks! :

Thank you MF you look pretty hot yourself. I saw your blog I really liked it. I wish I could live in such a pretty area. I really liked your hammock too it is nice. If you want I can give you some of this snow that has just come down this morning so you can get a taste of missouri but only if you give me some of that tropical weather you have.:

oh MF one more thing. I absolutely love your dreads. I have always wanted dreads but recently cut my hair due to all the hair dye that I wanted to get out of my hair. It is shoulder level but I will be growing it out. Hopefully by the time I get it long again I can dread it. I am thinking abou dreading Jacobs hair when it gets surfer boy long. Just wanted you to know that. Oh and I have started wearing my ballet slippers outside more to wear them away by this summer. (trying to bring it back to topic)

I think I'm going to buy myself some ballet shoes for summer, how long do they last if you wear them everyday for at least 8 hrs? Just so you know, where I work I don't walk around alot, only during breaks.

cdmo2b, thanks
the thing about snow is (as I learned the hard way) its hard to stay barefoot! I love our tropical climate, where it's barefoot all year round :

cwat, I think ballet shoes should last a few months, depending on how much you walk and if it's on floors or pacement outside. and depending on if you replace them the second they start wearing out a bit in the soles or if you're happy to keep going with holes in them (which is for me, the aim )

Barefoot in the snow is not too bad. You get used to it. For me, rain is worse, especially when it is close to freezing and/or in the city. In urban areas the rain makes things stick to your foot and there is no grass to brush it off, then when it is cold you can't feel them so well. It's a bad combination just begging for cuts and minor injuries. That is why I want some good soft-soled shoes. Snow doesn't stick to the foot the way water does and it's actually a lot easier to stay warm. You just keep moving!

yeah, i found when i was barefoot in the snow as long as I kept walking it was fine.
I remember one day busking in Germany in the snow; it was earlyDecember in Heidelberg, and I made something like 50DM in half an hour. everyone who passed me threw in some money and told me to get some shoes

If things here get any worse I might save money and come down in five or six years. That is how long it would take heheheh for me anyway budgeting is not my thing. I know sad to admit but I will budget and hubby will want something and he gets for everyone else so I feel bad and buy it. It is a sickness. If you want warm wether instead of snow you could come this way for our summer.

TBH, I have never even seriously considered not wearing something outside when there is snow. I don't think I would dare, either, as we walk a lot... I would not be comfortable enough (well, depending on the type of snow, maybe) and I would be afraid of cps or something. I did notice,wearing the Feelmax shoes, that the trick is in not standin in one place.

Could someone, please, send me a link to the type of ballet slippers you are talking about? I am hoping these might work for the more formal occasions. (If there are any more weddings in the family, I will need something. I will never again let mil make me buy high heeled shoes. Now I have a pair of $90 shoes in the closet that were worn once for some hours.)

I dont know if you have a walmart any where around you but I know that My mother inlaw got me the ones that look crocheted at walmart. They have a soft sole of canvas with the antislip things but they work just fine.





I did try the barefoot thing in the snow but I dont know if it is cause it was my first time but I wasnt a fan I think that was it thought. I will try it again and actually walk around I just did it to go out and get the mail and i dont think I really gave it a chance. I will have to try it again.

Does anyone know of any sandals like these but with each toe seperaited? I am looking for something kind of like the 'yoga toes' but made out of rope or natural fabric. I really like the toejoe sandal from this company but would prefer something that separates each toe.
Thanks

I dont know of any other sandals that are seperated for the toes. I just wanted to post that I actually want a pair that are like the yoga toes. I actually got the yoga toes things that seperate the toes not the sandals those plastic like things that you put on. I dont recommend ever walking in them it hurts. They are really thick on the bottom. I hope you know what i am talking about it is hard to explain.

I had the most bizarre experience at the library today. Okay, I wouldn't call myself a barefooter, really, but I do think that shoes aren't so great for your feet. And I think it's particularly bad if you're feet are still really developing, like a toddler, so I try to keep her shoes off. So we were at the library today. She had socks on but no shoes. One of the security guards at the library asked us to leave because my not even two year old daughter only had socks on. And then another mother - her kid was about five - had this conversation, right in front of me, about - and this is her word - disgust it was to have a toddler walk around in socks? I'm still just dumbfounded. It never occurred to me that this would be a problem at all. Have I just wandered too far off into hippy lala land that I'm out of touch?

Sheesh. No, I think most people today are the ones out of touch. They're out of touch with nature and themselves and life...
