The other day Joey came home, looked at me, and said,"Did you go somewhere today?"
No... I just decided that after showering instead of putting on comfy yoga pants I would put on real pants. I figured if I was going to put real clothes on maybe I should also use the blow dryer? Hey let's get crazy and get that makeup out.
Then I started thinking it was odd that he thought I went somewhere just because I was dressed like a real live functioning adult. At that same moment I realized that I DO have a tendency to shower, throw my hair up, and reach for the comfiest clothes I can find. I'd like to use the excuse that I'm pregnant but it would be a bad one. Since becoming an at home mom again caring about my appearance has declined...drastically. I figure no one sees me so there's no reason to "get ready".
Once upon a time I got up every morning and "got ready". Hair! Makeup! Office clothes! The whole shebang! I worked for a real estate agent and before that a title company. I couldn't show up in my stretchy pants and hoody... Well, I could but I would probably be sent home to change.
The truth is even though I don't HAVE to get ready I SHOULD. I definitely feel better and happier when I look nice. Now I'm not saying I'm going to be photo ready everyday because that's just crazy talk BUT I am going to make more of an effort to get out of those lounge pants and into real pants more often.
