What? You don't enjoy cleaning?
This is a question I get asked a lot, by a lot of people. I also get the very snarky, "Must be nice." Well, ya know what, it is nice!
Had you told me 5 or 6 years ago that I would be a stay at home wife with no babies, or perhaps, as the case is, a baby on the way, I probably would have laughed and then been instantly insulted. After all, I had a college degree and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
Just over three years ago I married my handsome B and I quit my super exciting job working in communications for a mid-sized petrochemical company (note the sarcasm) in preparation of a move to the big city of Shreveport, La (again, sarcasm). Leaving Houston was not ideal but it made for a great way for dear husband and I to become completely debt free.
I was the only 24 year old I knew that had all of my student loans paid off. Nice.
And I always dress like her.
However, I digress big time!, it lasted about a month before I got really sulky and bored. I mean, you can only clean a 2-bedroom apartment so much. So, I became a nanny to the cutest little boy in west Houston until it came time for us to move and for me to work 6 days a week for a boss who had no clue what she was doing.
Fast forward to two years of working and writing later and here I am. Going on nearly nine months of being a stay at home wife. Yes, "working from home", but honestly, who am I kidding. I am a stay at home wife.
And damn proud of it.
So, I have decided to occasionally give you a little confession from a SAHW, dear readers, so that you can fully understand what it is that I really do all day.
Some days I don't get out of my pajamas.
And then my sweet husband calls and I look like this....
I hurry to change, get cute, and then put my PJs back on after he sees me looking cute.
