Everyday Dress

It amazes me how often I am questioned about the way I dress. "Where did you go today"? is often the question that I get. "I'm sorry, what exactly do you mean"? Which I guess on my part could really be deemed as a deceptive response because why else would they be asking other than the fact that they think that I don't have a "real" job and I could not possibly have anywhere to go that would warrant looking halfway decent. On the other hand, in my heart I really don't want to believe that people think that homeschooling and deciding to raise children full time is not a real job.

There was a time when I didn't get dressed like I had somewhere to go. I might just throw on some jeans and a t-shirt or sweat pants in the winter time. I might just throw my hair in a ponytail or whatever I deemed was comfortable, but the truth is that I feel better when I get dressed as if I have something to do and I am WAY more productive. It also doesn't hurt that I'm not embarrassed to answer the door when the UPS truck comes. :-)


  1. I'm trying to make some changes in this area. After so many years of dressing for outside work, I just got sloppy when I came home. I feel better about myself, my job as a mom and my day when I put more effort into dressing for the day.

  2. I'm with you Yolanda. I try to dress nicely every day...I perceive that the children show more respect for me when I do. Like Ann said, I feel better about myself and I get much more accomplished.
