This weekend most of New England is shivering under an Arctic Blast that has wind chills down to between thirty and fifty below zero. That's dangerously cold, even for those of us who've lived here all our lives.
It's a good day to stay in and stay warm.
Here's a blog post I really enjoyed, on 4 ways to love your husband when he's being unlovable.
People today might tend to chuckle at these housewives, but when you think about it, housewives back in the 40s, 50s, and 60s didn't usually slouch around in a pair of sweats and a t-shirt, even when they were doing heavy house-cleaning projects.
A homemaker would usually wear a "house dress" and an apron, or a pair of capris with a blouse, and often she tied her hair up with a scarf while she was cleaning, but she didn't dress in a careless or grungy manner.
How about us? Do we slap on any ol' thing as we head into the day, or do we take the time to make ourselves presentable, even if we don't wear the "uniform" of the housewife of the 1950s?
