I know…I know…I know….
Even as I write this I am sitting on the couch, late at night in my pajamas after just showering for the first time today.
It’s been a long day…running errands, doing homework, and changing diapers. Sorting laundry, fixing dinner, and paying bills. Attending meetings, making calls, and driving the carpool. Doing dishes, cleaning toilets, and mopping floors. And today wasn’t even a busy day.
As I sit here tired and worn out in my Winnie the Pooh thermals (that I am way to old to be wearing) and my nerd glasses with wet hair I wouldn’t say that I am a cover girl for the “Ideal Homemaker”. But tomorrow is another day.
My life seems to ebb and flow. At times everything seems easy…at other times everything seems so hard. And that includes even getting dressed in the morning. I’m not ashamed to say that…I think a lot of you out there can relate (and will spend an entire day in pajamas)…but I want to be awesome…with a wholesome attitude and a pleasing appearance. And so, I’ll try again tomorrow….
This week we are doing a pencil skirt sew along. Now, I doubt I’ll be wearing one of those bad boys tomorrow but I am planning on making one. Its something I can do tomorrow that can’t be undone. And then…maybe just maybe…I will wear it this week. Because even though I’m “just a mom” I’m also a woman. And it wouldn’t hurt to dress like one every once in awhile. In fact, I think it would do me a whole lot of good.
I hope you all might consider sewing along with us…who knows, a little selfish sewing could do you some good as well. (Even if you are sewing along in your pajamas like I will be :). )
Take Care of Yourselves.
