if you didn't know my little feeties have circulation promlems... the doc says they are too small for proper blood flow its kind of a problem. especially at night time. normally my remedy is to rub them on others' legs and steal the heat. usually on those of my family and more recently mikelle and shelbie (sorry guys) but unfortunately i don't share rooms with them anymore and i don't have a husband. so, i came up with this lovely solution last night. now my socks don't come off and the pants make my ankles warm. works like a charm.
