    I used to be organized. I had that system where I know where everything is...hubby may not...but I kept up with my stuff; took care of it.
    Now, everything is everywhere. I think having kids done that...LOL! My son throws everything on the floor. He can drag out more stuff and toys than 10 people. I just wear whatever around the house...I'm lucky if I get my contacts in and my hair pulled out of my face. I does make me feel better if I have on a little makeup. :roll: I don't always wear it at home, though.
    I can work better with my dishes done and my beds made, but it takes a while to get a path made to the sink and bed...(ok, it isn't that bad). I rarely get time to sit down and sew, and if I do get a minute, I don't care if the bed is made or the dishes are done anymore. I might get my house cleaned when my son starts Kindergarten. :roll: :roll: :roll:

    I don't get much company. I don't know the last time I had a visitor through the day. It was probably the gas man a couple weeks ago! My Mom doesn't even visit unless it's on the weekend anymore. I think she came over in February to help cut out the box tops. Before that, it had been a LONG time. (She hasn't been feeling well). I don't scare them away or anything (not that I'm aware of)! LOL! I just don't have girlfriends that I get together with at home...

    BUT, if those were "RULES"...I'd make sure to intentionally mess up the bed and maybe even jump on it...and I'd eat a lot to dirty up the dishes in case they were clean...
    Who said "Stepford Wives"? ...LOL! I follow rules, just not controlling ones...something like that! Hehehehe. (I guess I see where the kids get the orneriness from...hehehe)

    Now days it takes too much time to keep everything organized and back in those days of organization, I did not have time to quilt. Now that I have retired, I think I have earned the privilidge to stay in my PJ any day I choose and quilt till I drop. Besides, we should look at things this way. If we are in PJs, no make-up, etc. that means the car is in the garage and we are saving a lot of $$$$$$ for gasoline expense and we're not at the fabric shop spending more $$$$$. I know my hubby appreciates that.

    This is hilarious! Reminds me of the old movies like Leave It to Beaver when the mom was always dressed in a dress and looked so proper. Glad those days are gone! I prefer COMFORT!! LOL!!

    Thanks for sharing! That was Great!

    Yes!! With a pearl necklace and high heels! I would kill myself dressed like that! LOL! I'd probably trip up my heel in the iron cord or something! LOL!

    Yes, and think of all the money we're saving on make-up, too! LOL!

    Just got me thinking, I don't remember my mom dressed like that!! LOL! I could only imagine my feet killing me and getting threads all tied up in my necklace! I have to check my clothing for strings and thread as I leave the house as it is! Oh, the memories!

    It's 3:09 pm. I am sitting here at my computer in my pj's, hair uncombed, face unwashed. Am I sick? No. Do I work nights? No. I've been hand quilting since this morning and am just now taking a break to check emails, etc. Do I feel guilty? NOT AT ALL!!!! Let me know if I need to work up some shame.

    I almost fell off my chair laughing and my DH spit his coffee across the table :lol: He knows that would never happen with me...as a matter of fact, when I started to learn how to quilt...I forgot how to clean the house, cook, dress myself...and the list goes on.... :D :D

    In our house . . . DH has a motto (you've heard it) "A place for everything and everything in it's place." I have a motto: "Everything is someplace!"

    I read DH the article. He said it was "sick" and feels sorry for women that had to live with those expectations.

    No shame in staying up all night to work on a quilt project and no shame in a less than neatnick house, but let me tell you what just happened to me while I was trying to find info about Sue Haussman's PBS show on Saturday. Talk about SHAME -- There is a satelite t.v. repairman in the house working on my husband's t.v. so I'm staying out of the way by trying to find a product which was on her show last Saturday. Several web sites are available and there was one which asked if anyone had seen her show on Saturday. When I went into that site there was info about needing to download the latest and greatest version of a program, so I just want to cancel and get to another site. First of all the cancel option would not work, so I was trying everything I know to exit the site. Finally I did get to exit and up popped the most gosh awful porn and it would not let me exit. The repairman is in and out of the back door which is near the computer, I am looking for anything I can find to throw over the screen. Finally just before he walked in I got this stuff off the screen. When he enters the back door he has a big smile and says, "Good Morning". I am falling apart thinking that just seconds ago that big smile and greeting might have been a big gasp. Can you imagine???? Here is Papa and Nana, retired, and there is porn on the computer screen. No one would ever believe that Nana was trying to find anything concerning quilting.

    I had one of those sites pop up on me while doing a search. UGH!
    I'm sure the repair man got a big kick out of it if he actually saw it!

    hmm I guess I'm in trouble... my favourite way to sew is in my flannel pj bottoms and tank top... hair pulled up in a hair band. and forget the makeup.. lipstick doesn't stick well when your mouth is stuffed with chocolate and a glass of red wine :P
