I looked around in disgust at the careless way the people in this household left their shoes everywhere. No matter how many times I tell them to please. put. them. away., it seems like my demands fall on deaf ears. It's like I'm their slave and they are happy to let me pick up after them. In resignation, I began scooping up the pairs to remove them to their respective closets, but suddenly stopped, mid-scoop.
Three of the five pairs of shoes in the living room were mine.
Another pair of my sandals was by the back door.
I guess there is something to the saying, "more is caught than taught," and in this case, my family has caught my penchant for leaving shoes around - despite what I've taught them!
Today's Small Thing is to gather up the shoes that may be loafing around the house and put them where they belong. If you don't have any loitering sets of soles - give yourself a pat on the back and take today's points for being so neat. This is an easy one and makes you feel great seeing shoe-free entries, steps and living rooms all at one time!
POINTS: 50 for gathering the sole mates and putting them in their places
