JUST a House Wife?!!

Today I decided I want to give you a look into my everyday life. Someone the other day scoffed a little when I said I was a stay at home Mom. "Oh, so your just a house wife." was there response. JUST A HOUSE WIFE?!? I was sitting at the Dr and didn't really feel like defending the rest of us "House Wives" at that moment. I have been thinking about it and it kind of got me angry but then it made me feel bad for the girl. She obviously does not have the opportunity that I do to get to stay at home and take care of my Family. So maybe she was jealous? Or did she really think being a "House Wife" is a pitiful thing? Either way, I documented my whole day today so YOU can see what type of things this "House Wife" does during the day, you know, aside from eating my Bon Bons and watching Soap Operas. GAG!

6:05 am: Troop knocks on my door wanting to cuddle in my bed.
6:20 am: Beach Body work out for 45 mins. Today was Cardio, lower body and abs
7:15 am: Start making breakfast so my boys start the day off good! Today was Blueberry muffins with strawberries and bananas. That means I had to bake the muffins AND cut the fruit! WOW!
7:45 am: While the muffins were baking I mixed up 5 DOZEN chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies.
8:00 am: Eat breakfast with my boys
8:30 am: Clean up breakfast/dishes and continue baking the rest of the cookies.
9:00 am: Get showered and ready for the day. Captain Hunk was nice enough to get Troop ready for me today! :)
9:40 am: Get Troop in the car and head to pick up my Visiting Teaching Companion. I won't go into detail about how we got extremely lost on our way to the first house!
10:15 am -12:20 pm: Visit sisters in my ward.
12:30 pm: Come home to feed Troop lunch.
1:00 pm: Load Troop back in the car and head to Target to pick out Thomas the Train stickers for Troop's dinner chart and chicken broth. And GO ME for ONLY buying what I needed! :)
2:00 pm Start preparing dinner. Chopping carrots, celery, onions and chicken, only to find out Captain Hunk has a meeting and won't be home until 7:30ish so he was heading home for an early dinner then heading back to work.
2:45 pm: Put my prepared ingredients back in the fridge for tomorrow and figure out something quick I can prepare for Captain Hunk.
3:30 pm: Try to get Troop to lay down on the couch with me because he was in SERIOUS need of a nap. Plan failed!
3:45 pm: Wake Captain Hunk up from his quick snooze and then fold my last load of laundry that I didn't get to yesterday.
4:30 pm: Troop thinks we should make "Jello shapes." I only have one box of Jello. So Off we go to the Commissary for another box of Jello, and oh ya, the cottage cheese that I had forgotten for our pot pies. Good thing we aren't having them until tomorrow.
5:00 pm: boil some water to make our Gelatin. Get it all mixed up and put in the fridge. Troop keeps running to the kitchen every 5 minutes to see if it is Jello yet!
5:15 pm: Feed the dog...I forgot to mention I did that this morning too.
5:25 pm: Sit down to Blog.
There you have it folks! Keep in mind I still need to make dinner for Troop and myself. I think it's a chicken nugget and carrots kind of night!
Don't get me wrong, I definitely have days where I get together with my favorite girls and we just chat the day away while the kids play, but going nonstop with chores, chasing Troop, grocery shopping errand running and so on is the norm. And THIS "House Wife" wouldn't change it for the world!

  1. Im so greatful for the oppertunity to be JUST a HOUSEWIFE!! I got to see my sons first steps, snugle him just cause, watch the progress of each tooth, play with him until I cant keep up anymore, listen to his exciting stories, teach him new words, and just watch his eyes light up from pure love and joy knowing mommy is here to stay and play the day away with him!!! Having an eternal family is a blessing not a punishment!!! If we were payed on what we did every day there wouldnt be enough money in the world to employ us for very long;) Your a wonderful mom and wife and I know you wouldnt want it any other way!!
