Times Up. Time to Wife.

Welp, it is time for me to man up and start trying to be a good housewife (trying being the key word here.)So as you know, I am the queen of staying busy. And not just sorta busy…..but like every minute of every day have something jammed into it. I try to never have a dull moment. In fact, I try so hard to never have a dull moment, that when I do, I am beyond lost and confused and usually just find myself in bed ready to sleep.  But my time has changed.

I graduated school.

I am about to have a normal, 9-5, corporate job.

I no longer work nights and weekends.


Physically at least. I have become so accustomed to being busy and not having “time” for extracurricular activites because I had so many insane obligations. But now, those obligations are gone…..forever…and time is something I suddenly have a lot of.

And what am I going to do with all this spare time. Welp, it is time for me to man up and start trying to be a good housewife (trying being the key word here.)

For years now, Matt has held the title in this house with chores, housework, projects, paying bills, raising kids, all while supporting me while I work and go to school.

But now it is my time. I get to to take the kids to school everyday. I get to pick them up every Friday and be with them all weekend until it is Monday again. I get to be home while he has major house projects, so as the housewife, I will finally begin all the little DIY projects I have been dying to do. I will be better at cleaning (bahahahahahahahahah) laundry (yeah right….) and all the shit us “housewives” are suppose to be doing…..kinda.

It’s just that I am ready to be more involved. More present. Living a life that is enhancing my home, not just my education or work experience. This is also finally the time to work on something I have completely let go of in the past few years of child birthing, working and schooling…..which is focusing on myself. I have started a workout program a couple months back that I love. I began a diet journey that I am so excited to share with you guys. I have bought some skin care and am following a routine, and I even purchsedn ew makeup……I mean WHO AM I???!!! But you guys, I am learning so much and can’t wait to tell you about it!
So get ready, this ol ball in chain is strapped with ideas AND TIME, which is amazing (and scary!) I have a few great tricks up my sleeve to bring here to my page, that I hope to fill your days with reality, learning and a little bit of self love and a whole lot of laughter.

Look, I know there are a lot of mommy blogs out there, but as a wife blogger, I am ready to finally embrace my role. I am ready to show you many different ways we wives deal with this whole FOREVER thing.  And, of course my main goal is to  be as wonderful and mediocre as possible, all while showing you The Shitty Housewife ways.
