There is no greater reward than being a mother, but believe me, for all those expecting moms out there, you sure do have your work cut out for you in order to earn that reward. It was only when I had my second child that I realized, being prepared for any scenario was better…
Keeping your home clean can be an exhausting task, especially if you have to squeeze it in between the chaos and work and keeping your family in line. And if your life feels like it’s nothing but cleaning and tedious chores, perhaps it’s…
The weather is getting hotter and hotter, and if you haven’t done it already, you are probably getting ready to open your pool and start the swimming season. Having a pool in your backyard is wonderful, but it requires quite some effort before you…
Yes, I really do work in my PJs. After all the basic preliminary activity, the first thing I do is post my blog, which I've usually written the night before, so I'm almost always in my PJs. I'll answer a few emails, read some news, and a few blogs.
Then I get ready for my power walk and go to the gym, so changing is a requirement. Plus, I don't think I've ever gone a day without leaving the house for some reason, so the PJs are just a morning thing until I have to go out.
But, it's great to be able to get a few things done while still wearing them. Personally, I think it's a time saver.
Yep, most days I'm in my PJs 'til noon. The only reason I shower and get dressed at that time is to run any errands prior to school letting out. Otherwise, I would probably just take a bath before bed.
Depends, I used to always. But then my son started preschool and I had to take him to school every morning before 8 am and walk him to his classroom. I am not the type to go out in my PJs, so I got fully dressed most mornings even put on makeup, some mornings I skipped the makeup but made my hair presentable. Now that its summer I'll probably have more PJ days.
Sometimes. It all depends on what I am doing that day. I do wear the same clothes for several days (as long as they aren't gross) as does my work-at-home/school-at-home family. It has saved us tons on water, electricity, gas, plus wear-and-tear on clothes--and no one stinks. :)
Usually it is noon before I am actually fully functioning and have all the kids and self dressed.
I only work in my pjs when I work late at night, or early in the morning before 6am. As soon as I get up in the morning, I shower, get dressed, do a little bit of work while getting the kids dressed and breakfast, etc. Honestly, if I stay in my pj's, I'm not as productive and I am not as motivated to work as hard and as fast as I need to, nor am I as likely to get out the door quickly for work errands or last minute meetings when necessary, so I just can't work in my pj's during the day.
Totally work in my pjs. That's one of the things I love about working at home. I even have relatives buying me "classy" pjs because they know that's what I hang out in. And I have winter PJs and summer PJs. BUT, I make a real effort when it's time to walk out the door or if I'm expecting someone to come over.
BUT, my PJs really are my working clothes, and I generally put them back on after showers or excursions and such... but a clean set :) Don't live in the same clothes day after day.
I go through phases. For awhile I'll stay in PJ's and work all day but then I also go through phases where I feel like making myself presentable so I'll actually get dressed, do my hair & makeup. It just all really depends on what I feel like doing.
