Desperate Housewives: The Hobo Edition

My husband and I were sitting around the other day discussing Christmas.
He asked me what I wanted so I rattled off a list of my 2014 holiday must have’s.
When I finished it was quiet for a bit, then he asked.
“So uhhhhhh basically you want wine, sweat pants and slippers?” 
“Yup!” I replied happily.
He laughed.
I laughed.


Then I got to thinking how unglamorous that is.
How unglamorous I am.

Case in point…

When I’m home all day I sometimes don’t brush my teeth until noon.
There, I said it.
If you show up unannounced, I’m probably not dressed and its a safe bet I’m wearing a pair of Hanes Mens socks with the heel part pulled up to my ankle to make them kinda-sorta fit.
And right now my deodorant is missing so I smell like Old Spice.
I save my put togetherness for date night and random get-togethers where I see people.
And thats about it.
See my profile photo up there in the upper right hand corner?
Ummmm yeah thats like four years old. 
There is a reason why I haven’t updated it.
So while reality TV appeases the masses with shows about desperate housewives who look fab, but are crazy.
I’m going to start a new show: Desperate Housewives, The Hobo Edition.
We look crazy, but we kinda have it together.
And we may or may not feed our toddlers canned corn for lunch.
 Just canned corn and nothing else.
 “Yummmy! Corn again!”
So yeah, I look like a suburban homeless person most of the time.
And I want someone to enable me and buy me sweat pants, wine and slippers for Christmas.
And I have no shame in that.

    Gurl – you are speaking my language. My husband would keel over if I flitted around the house in heels – ain’t gonna happen. Yoga pants (neuvogue sweat pants) and oversized chinos shirt are my go-to unless I have to go out in public, I mean, even I have my standards. (wink wink)
