You call it pathetic, I call it brilliant!

It's been three days since my boys went off track, and we have yet to find ourselves dressed in anything other than our pajamas.  Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration.  I did have to go to school on Monday and Tuesday night, so I threw some clothes on for a few hours.  But other than that- it's been 'pajama day' everyday around here.

See?  I took this picture at 1:30 p.m. today.  

The first day off track Ian said, "I don't have to go to school today so I'm not getting dressed."  I like the way that boy thinks.  

I'm not sure if it is laziness or rebellion that we are all feeling or if it's because inside our house looks like this....

and outside it looks like this....  I know.  I threw up a little in my mouth when I saw it too.

But whatever the reason, we have decided that unless there's something worthy of leaving the house- and it better be darn important- (picking Nicole up from school doesn't even cut it,  I stay in my jammies for that too)- the pajamas will stay on.

I'm thinking that I could work my pj's into some type of Halloween costume- and the boys?  Their jammies fit perfectly under theirs. 

In fact, I'm thinking that school isn't even a good enough reason to get dressed.  I'm wearing pajamas to school tonight too!  That way I can just come home and crawl right into bed.  It will save lots of time and energy.   And the best part of this whole thing?  No laundry! 

This is the best idea Ian's ever had! 


  1. I call it brilliant too! You are always so put together, so it makes me feel better about myself that sometimes you of all people like to live in your pj's too! And here we go again with another winter...doesn't it seem like we were JUST talking about how much we hated the snow the first time it snowed last year? Brrrr.

  2. It is brilliant! Especially because you have the cutest pajamas of anyone I know! Way to go, Ian!

    And, one more thing--I love your couch.

  3. Cute jama photo of your legs. I'm so jealous you're off track.

  4. Oh Becky you're so cute! I swear the more kids I have the more places I go in PJs. Well sweats anyway. Today I went to Costco in them. I at least put on my running shoes instead of flip-flops, hoping to fool people into thinking I had been to the gym! I still haven't had a shower yet today . . . okay too much information.
