Now that my husband is back to work after a two week vacation, I'm back to the usual housewife days.  As Olivia gets older, my chore schedule changes and right now it seems like every week, I'm re-learning how to do my job as a housewife.

This is my first 1950s dress. It's just a shabby little house dress and it's missing a button so I think I will replace the white ones with prettier blue ones and maybe I'll make a blue belt to dress up a plain frock.  It's very comfortable and made in easily washable cotton so I wear it often.

I find that a house dress is just as comfortable as pajama pants but I feel so much better and more put together. When I get dressed, I'm ready to take on the day and work instead of lounging around all day.
