Full Time Housewife

The Good and Not-so-Good of being a Full Time Housewife (with no pets or children to take care of)

The Good:
- I've found myself thinking (for the first time EVER): "I'll whip up a batch of scones real quick this afternoon" --or--
"I think I'll try this new cannelloni recipe tonight"
Who am I?!

-The kitchen gets cleaned every day. The house gets vacuumed regularly. The bed gets made daily. Individual Gold Medal goes to Katie. 

NBC Announcer: "She's been training for so long for this, Herb, and you can just see how it's paid off here at the final stages of these 2012 Olympics. You know, she did great in the all-around events, but I think what really clinched it for the judges was the tight corners and pillow placement on that final bed-making event. Such precision and poise, she makes it look easy but there's years of preparation and coaching behind that. That's one of the things that makes this my favorite event, Herb...it's not only the physicality and athleticism of these medal contenders, but the total dedication to their training...it's not just a sport, it's a lifestyle. Back to you, Terry."

-Time to read. I think I've read about 10 books in the last month.

-Sleeping in. 'Nough said.

The Not-so-Good:
- CONSTANT EATING. I can put away a bag of Goldfish like it's nothing. Thankfully, I have plenty of time to work out (if I should choose to do so. And I should.)

-"Did I shower today? Hmm. I am pretty sure I showered yesterday...was it yesterday? It was probably yesterday. I'm good to go."

- So much boredom (please see above where my inner monologue was an Olympic announcer)

- Watching whatever movie that happens to come on tv. Recent titles include "Shark Tale", "You Again", "Battle:Los Angeles". You know, all my favorites.

So there you have it. I'm going to go whip up some scones real quick.
