Clearly, a week of posts about all things sleep related would not be complete without a tribute to pajamas. I think jammies are wonderful and wear them a lot. Anyone who knows me well knows that I prefer to cook in pajamas. This may raise some eyebrows, but if you've ever tried on a chef's outfit (and I have) they are basically pajamas with a nicer top (and a funny hat, but whatever). The point is they are loose and comfortable. Another reason I like to wear jammies when I cook is that I hate when my clothes smell like cooking. So I change into pajamas while I cook
I also like to wear jammies when I clean. I'm not sure why, but I suspect it's just because they are so comfortable! I can zip around the house and get so much done when I am in my comfy jammas!
Of course, there are drawbacks to wearing jammies during non-pajama times. It can be embarrassing if you get caught. I try to have myself fixed up with hair and makeup so that I have a more "studied" pajama look if folks should drop by, but it doesn't always work.
I got caught in jammies the other day. I had a lot of running around to do in town, and so I got up early to get everything done, but I was tired when the alarm clock went off and still tired when I got home. So I decided I would take a nap. It worked out well because my husband was coming off a back shift so he was sleeping too. I popped into my jammies and snuggled into bed, ready for a nice refreshing nap, when I heard it. The doorbell. The cable guy had stopped by to confirm an appointment and do some preliminary work. Even though I still had freshly coiffed hair and was wearing makeup, there was no explaining why I was wearing my blue puppy dog pajamas at 1:30 in the afternoon. Sigh.
Oh well, such is the price we pay for comfort! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and that you get to enjoy sleep-ins and lots and lots of time in your jammies! Next week I will have an update on the Great Green Spring Cleaning Challenge, and lots of other fun stuff!
