Cold Feet

I know it's not really cold here, compared to every where else, but I'm really cold!
My feet are freezing! Yesterday I spent the afternoon at my friend Katie's house and at the base where she lives, they don't have heat!! My feet were freezing the whole time, and still freezing after I came back to our heated home after dinner.
When I was trying to fall asleep, I couldn't because my feet were so cold. I tried doubling up on socks, I tried warming my feet on David's legs (he's like a furnace!), I tried taking the socks off and rubbing my feet as fast as I could to produce friction...nothing worked. I thought I would never fall asleep because I was so distracted by how freezing my feet were.

But then I remembered this super gift that Santa brought... a heating pad! I fell asleep with my feet warming up under the heating pad (it shuts off automatically after an hour). It must have done the trick, because when I woke up, I was nice and warm...and on top of all the covers!

..and you're looking forward to wearing your winter coats? you should be here. It is 11 degrees below zero! with a wind chill of -34. how could I walk across the parking lot with a heating pad on my feet? this weather warrants buying winter boots a size larger to accomodate the multiple pairs of socks. Enjoy your cold weather, which is actually 70 degrees warmer than Chicagoland. love Mom

So it's -26 here, just saw your mom's comment. I need a full body heating pad! But they don't make them my size... Darn!!!! LOL :o)

Maybe you can bring some of that warm air over here.
