Things Change

A couple of weeks ago, I passed a milestone (which is much less painful than passing, say, a kidney stone). The day came and went quietly and without fanfare. It was the anniversary of the day I quit my job to stay home and be a “housewife”. I’m not really a big fan of that term, but still and all, that’s what I am.

I really don’t miss my previous high-powered career. I am truly enjoying being home and taking care of all things domestic. Last night I made a coffee cake for Kevin to take to the office today, and there’s no way I would have had the time or energy to do that a year ago. Kevin’s sock drawer is organized. My house stays clean. My sheets stay washed. The dishes get done EVERY SINGLE DAY (which is a small miracle that certainly didn’t occur while I was working). All the little things are no longer overlooked, and we’re both happier than ever because of it.

So here it is Thursday, and instead of ramping up for a big weekend in retail, I’m planning next week’s dinner menus and making my grocery list. How’s that for a life change?

    We are so lucky. I too am enjoying doing all things domestic these days. Yea, I hate doing my dishes after supper, but only b/c I have yet to have my dishwasher installed. Once we finish the kitchen and get that in, it’ll be much bettah! I love that I am able to stay on top of laundry, instead of having to do it all on Sunday. I love that my bathroom stays clean. And I love that I get to cook supper for my family every day, and make desserts from scratch!
