Hi, My name is Julie, and I seem to have an addiction
I have been so behind on laundry that this last weekend I did 12 loads and still could not see the tile on my bathroom floor.

Who do all these clothes belong to?

When I started folding and putting things away I discovered something I was unaware of. I am one of the major culprits in the over abundance of laundry in this house.

I have a little dresser in my closet where I keep all my pajama's. I love pj's. Soft and cotton. As I was folding and putting away I discovered I had no where near enough room in that dresser for all my pj's.

I decided to clean out the drawers.

You know what I found?

Twenty four pairs of pj's. Who needs that many? I seem to have a problem. Other women love shoes. I love pj's.

Most of the pajama's were not even old. I could only part with a few items.

I like to wear a new fresh pair of pj's each night. So, with my regular clothes and my pj's (not even adding in any pool attire) that is 14 outfits a week just for me.

Now, in my defense when my boys started getting older and I had all these boy/men and their friends traipsing about my house all the time I thought I should get some nice lounging pajama's and probably not wear my normal little t-shirts.

So, you see, this whole thing started out quite innocently.

Have I also told you that I take my kids to school in my pj's. When you have cute ones you don't really have to worry about getting dressed in the morning.

My sister bought me a nice new pair for my birthday. She said she didn't want the kids to be embarrassed by their pj wearing mom.

My mom is aghast at this. She got up every morning, did her hair, put on makeup and real clothing, and then left the house.

I always think I am such a disappointment to her in this area. Of course, she always says's I am not.

My mom thinks I am wonderful even if I do have a strange addiction and refuse to put on real clothing before 9:00am.

So, if there any other pj wearing, slow to get started in the morning mom's and grandma's (or singles or just marrieds) out there please let me know.

Us pj wearing folks need to stick together.

I thought I was bad with 3-4 pair of pj's! However, I do try to wear them twice before putting them in the wash for the reason you made so clear.

Mine don't sound as cute as yours though, I would probably never wear mine out of the house.

Good luck purging!

I won't be wearing PJs when I drop my kids off, but I will rarely be showered and dressed nicely. I will exercise after I drop my son off, so there's no way I am going to get ready and then have do shower again after. I guess they will just have to get used to seeing me yucky in the AM!

I love pj days, where I may take a morning shower, but then put clean pjs on again because I'm not really going anywhere that day. not sure what I'll do when I start driving kids to school though....good question. You are too funny!

Girl, I have been known to still be in my pj's while eating my lunch! I can only wear mine once too. For some reason it just feels wrong to not wash them after I take them off!

Don't sweat the addiction. It could be so much worse! A pj addiction will not put your kids into therapy one day!! Indulge. You deserve it!

You'd probably freak at my pajama's, lol. I also do not like to get dressed before 9, and usually not before 3, or later. Whatever!
But I don't even care to wear pajamas. I just drop my drawers and sleep in my shirt! I'm just too tired at night to care.

Hi there,

I was going through my email and noticed that I had saved a comment from you on my blog so I could come by and visit...this is the first time I've made it over, but girl, I think we may be neighbors! We'll have to email and find out!

Anyway, as to the pj issue, I don't have a lot because I spend all the clothing money on the kids most of the time, but on the days that I don't get up and run, I have been known to teach school in my sleeping attire...we homeschool, so it's not as bad as it sounds! LOL.

As far as the mountains of laundry...I'm right with you there! I notice that laundry is the last item in both of our blog it should be!

I think we could be friends!

Isn't it awesome how they found a cure for the "hairupmakeupwearingheelstomop" disease our mothers suffered from.

Frankly I worked FT from home for two eyars, John still does and the kids homeschool.

"Back to school" shopping thus year consisted of lots of new pj's and yoga pants.

Our school uniform ROCKS.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE PJ'S!! I wear my PJ'S pretty often to take my kiddos to school as well. :)

I am a PJ addict. I admit it. Somedays I am in them most of the day especially if I have no were to go. Most of mine are pretty decent and if I answer the door in them I am not totally embarrassed.
