Ode to Jammies

I am soooo in my happy place right now.

Oh, my home sucks. It's cold as well...shit outside (12 degrees this morning). I hate my job. But I'm soooo in my happy place. Right now. Right this very minute.

"How can that be?", you ask. I'm wearing new flannel jammies. And they are comfy, light yet warm. And not terribly unattractive (compared to others I've had).

I went to Penny's tonite. As much as I shouldn't I needed a couple of things and they are having a sale. I usually cannot buy "jammies". Normally they are mens large lounging pants. Even then they aren't long enough. But I noticed flannel jammies were 50% off. So I figure what the hell. No one's gonna see them anyway. If they look like capris So What.

I just got home and put them on. Oh. My. Goodness. The pants are actually "normal" length. Yes - they fall below the ankle. They are roomy and soooo very soft. Drawstring waiste - an NO hole/opening in the front. They're GIRL jammies!! WooHoo!!!

Now - I'm not thrilled with the fact they are covered in clouds - but hey, like I said. It's not like they'll be seen all that often.

So I'm gonna curl up in my chair, read a few blogs, have a cup of tension tamer tea and just flat out relax. In my new flannel jammies.

I'm a simple girl - really.

That would be why you're blogging, right?

Whoo hoo! I am laughing!

Hey, it could be worse than clouds. When I was pregnant with my first son I used to ask people, "Why is it that just because I'm pregnant the maternity industry thinks suddenly I want to dress with prints of cute ducks and bunnies all over my clothes? I'm HAVING a baby, I did NOT turn into one!" GRRR.

Glad the jammies are nice and long and are girl jammies. A good omen for this winter???

Ooooo! Flannel jammies are the best by far! My one shopping goal right now is to find a floor length (yeah, I have the same ain't-long-enough issues) flannel nightie. Red plaid.

Aren't flannel Jammies supposed to be plaid?
