oops, i missed last month’s update. oh well.
while there are many things in my life i wish could be better, i have to say that i’m really quite happy with the way the path of my life turns out. i like my chosen profession, i like my small circle of friends and one fact that stands out to me about my life that i like… is the fact that i’m not a housewife.
don’t get me wrong, i don’t think being a housewife or a homemaker is something one shouldn’t be proud about. it’s just that i think i would have made a terrible housewife. i can’t cook, i hate and rarely do house chores, and i’m awful at tending to people. i imagine that if i ever have kids, they would grow up learning how to tend to me, rather than the other way round.
when i think about it, being a housewife does have its perks. you get to set your own schedule and best of all, you probably get to decorate the house the way you want it. now that i like the sound of, and i wish the day would come sooner when i could truly own a home i call my own. my house. mine.
maybe then, i’ll learn how to cook in my kitchen, have a special room for laundry, scrub the bath tub frequently so that i get to soak in a clean tub…
hmm, i still don’t think i will be a housewife, but i will probably end up doing most of the chores a housewife does one day. until then… i get away from not doing chores by working overtime more. to earn more to own that dream house someday… so that i can do my own chores. oh the irony!
