Sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself...

Y'know, I've really tried hard not to be that SAHM who wears sweats and never does anything with her hair. Even if it was just the simple act of wearing "real" clothes instead of my lounge/pajama stuff all day it was a little something I could do for myself that made me feel productive and put together. Well, I've fallen off the wagon...big time.

Ker-splat!

Mornings at my house, like everyone else's out there, are a circus. I'm feeling really accomplished if I have on matching socks and have brushed my teeth, after I've gotten the boys ready to go. Pitiful, I know.


I need to get back in the habit of throwing out a fresh outfit for myself along with the boys' stuff every night.....

**Several days later**

Okay, I've tried to make an effort. I even managed to eke out a moment or three to run a hot iron over my clothes. A nice blue button down shirt and some new slacks that I'd gotten with some birthday money.

I was quite delighted that I'd been afforded such a luxury as ironed slacks (not worn out jeans, mind you) right up until I was asked in Wal-Mart if I worked there.

*SIGH*

I tried, people, I really did.

You are cracking me up!

I have found I get more done when I get up and get dressed and do something with my face,then when I don't. But when I had children your kids ages I didn't so much. I had my hands full and just getting through the day with all those kids was enough!
Enjoy those precious little pumpkins~♥

Really it could have been worse, my dear! I'm sure! But I have a feeling I would be doing the same thing if I was home with Jonathan all day...heck, I really don't get dressed up for work either! :-)

OUCH! I guess next time you should just wear your sweats to WalMart... but it could be worse, like if someone at the gas station thought you worked there...

It'll get better. I think. At least you didn't go to Wal-Mart in pj pants and slippers as that seems to be the trend.

Hey Girl, an ironed pair of pants earns major points in my world!! ;o)

Thanks so much for your precious comments--and the one today really touched me--so appreciate knowing that others think on and learn and struggle and get back up in the same areas I do~

Blessings!

oh my gosh. i had to laugh. i've had my grandson at home with me off and on for a few weeks and i can totally relate. the embarrassing thing is when someone running for office rings your doorbell in the middle of the day and it looks like you just rolled out of bed. nice, huh?
