Whether your favorite mode of dressing around the house is pajamas or nightgowns, I think it would be safe to say most of us are fans of lounge-wear. However, I have been musing on whether that is the most appropriate wear when we really want to get things done around the house. Be assured, I am not going to fuss about people wearing pajamas to do housework. If I did that, I would be giving myself a D in the appropriate costume for cleaning my house.
Are you wondering what brought this on? It was the news on television. I was listening to two women commentators talk about wearing pajamas -- big news--right? The anchor said she would be wearing them there if she could, and all of a sudden, I realized that I would not want to wear pajamas all the time.
Today, I had on my pj's until 2:00 PM. I did not feel like cleaning, and I needed a boost. What was my boost? Getting dressed was just the thing to get me going. I feel more in control of my household and my energy level.
I know it sounds merely psychological. But, there is nothing wrong with a psychological boost when you need it.
All I need now are some bright lights and some Christmas music; and, I am ready to go. Deck the halls with boughs of holly. FA, la, la, la, la, la, la...
P.S. Merry Christmas. I thought your kids and grandkids might enjoy these songs too. I did.
I almost forgot to tell you, I look forward to putting on my pajamas tonight after a warm shower. That is one of the ultimate comforts -- warm, soft pajamas on a cold night.
