I Love This Husband & Wife Stuff


#21: Staying home and playing house wife September 13, 2010

My husband and I both work full-time.  I dream about staying home and being a housewife.  Sometimes I get to do it for short intervals.  Like this weekend.  My husband had a work-related meeting for about 5 hours.  It allowed me to tidy up, get some laundry and cleaning done, grocery shop, and plan out the evening meal.  It also allowed me to give my husband the gift of returning to a clean and orderly home where he could relax.  The bed was even made!

God may not give us everything we ask for, but if you look out (and in) with a grateful heart, you will see that God gives us so much.  House wife for a few hours!   If you told me 20 years ago that I would want to be a housewife I would have laughed at you!  I’m glad I have changed.  There is nothing more beautiful than keeping a peaceful home for your family.  Proverbs 31 woman I strive to be!

    I sometimes think I want to be a housewife, too.

    Friday, I worked from home because our daycare was closed. I was sure I could do it all.

    Get my work done. Entertain a nine month old. AND tidy up.

    Yeah, I failed miserably. I think I could have completed 2 out of 3 of those, but three main goals essentially assured that I would not do any of them to the best of my abilities.
