I'm going to be updating this today routinely.
7:15 a.m.: I got dressed and got Stratton dressed and felt a little bit of relief when I didn't have to match shoes and socks for Stratton or myself. The tile and the carpet in our house was fine like it usually is. The concrete in our basement was a little cold but not bad.
7:35 a.m.: Took Stratton to the car and had to carry: him wrapped in a blanked, his Mickey, Minnie, and my back pack full of all my computer stuff. Once I got out on the front steps I could tell it was going to be a little painful on the concrete. My feet are really sensitive in the mornings for some reason so walking on the cold concrete was painful.

7:45 a.m.: Got Stratton out of the car for the baby sitters house. Concrete still hurt to walk on especially trying to get Stratton out of the car and carried into the house. The carpet rugs in the baby sitters garage were a big help on the cold concrete. Mrs Lisa the baby sitter asked why I didn't have shoes on and I got to tell her about One Day Without Shoes! Stratton is going without shoes today too but his feet are cold so he's wearing socks.

9:08 a.m.: I really need to go to the bathroom but I can't bring myself to go and stand on that nasty floor. I guess it's just a reminder that the children without shoes don't have the luxury of choosing if they want to walk where it's clean or not. Looks like I be making a trip down there soon enough today.
9:46 a.m.: Still needed to go to the bathroom but just cant do it. Got a few stares from coworkers since I didn't have any shoes on. My pants were really loud on the floor because they're long without shoes on. I think it's time to make the trek to the bathroom. Wish me luck.
9:50 a.m.: Time to go to the bathroom. The gold stair protects were cold and there are a few nails that stick up. I found that those are a little painful. I tried my best to avoid them on the way down.

9:53 a.m.: Headed back up stairs while trying to avoid the gold stair protectors again.
I did it I made it back up to my office without any nails sticking in my feet.
9:54 a.m.: Feet are back under the heating pad trying to warm back up.

5:38 p.m.: Drove to the park. This isn't uncommon for me to drive barefoot. I feel like I have better control of the petals and I like being barefoot anyway.
