I have almost always had a no shoe home. At least from the time I had my own home. I used to be quite the crazy about clean floors and well, I still am in many ways. My floors have to be mopped after my parents come over because they don't remove their shoes.
Because of this we have a LOT of shoes by our doors. A lot of shoes. They are always messy and I have a heck of a time getting the big kid to put her shoes away. Little l can be a bit obsessive about putting her shoes where they go, so it is not too bad with her. As for me, I have been on a bit of a shoe buying spree. After finding most of my shoes were too wide after losing weight and discovering that I like to wear nice things again I have more shoes now than I have had in quite some time.
This week I decided I had had enough. I couldn't take the mess any longer.
