Because I love to take a very hot shower before crawling into bed at night, I only shower in the morning on the days I wash my hair. Monday morning was such a day. I don’t know if it’s because this is a holiday–Martin Luther King Jr. Day–or because it’s cold and dark in the mornings, but Terry and I slept late on this particular day. It was after 7 when I finally got out of bed and into the shower.
Usually, after washing my hair on a winter morning, I dress in my knit warmups. Long sleeves, warm fabric. I also put on socks for extra warmth. This is my around-home outfit until I’m ready to dress for the day away from home, should it be one of those days. Today, for some reason, I put my pajamas back on when I got out of the shower.
I sat on the bed, reading my texts, emails, and Facebook, towel on my head, for about 15 minutes. When I finally got up to blow dry my hair, I realized that I had my pajamas on. Yep, it took all that time to realize I had made a mistake and had been sitting there, in my pajamas. I must have been on auto-pilot and thought I was going TO bed rather than starting my day. When I related this to Terry, he said I subconsciously wanted to go back to bed. The pajamas are quite warm and cozy, so maybe I just wanted to stay in them a little longer.
