This theme was touched upon in another thread and I wanted to discuss it further.

Okay, since I was the one that was a bit harsh about this issue.... When I first read your post, I was thinking that maybe I was just being too quick to respond.

I'm always finding something I want to do. I'm always thinking of new things I want to do.


My dh asked about the new set of paint colors just Friday night. I already had 2 sets of paint colors here for 2 other rooms.


I found some scrapbooking items on clearance, I have big plans for those.


I wrote down 3 new recipes off of Foodnetwork tv shows from last week's viewing. Just need to put ingredients on next week's grocery list and get the items on my menu to fix.


I finished a book and started a new one.


With the start of school comes the start of cleaning out closets, drawers and re-organizing.


Then there was Army Wives last night and Ali as The Bachelorette tonight ha

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think there are very many SAH's, even without kids, who just sit around all day and watch tv or twiddle their thumbs.

-actual portrayal of the avg American housewife.-


ITA w/your Peg Bundy (*shudder* that show was ever on tv) example.


I feel I'm the average American houswife as you said it.

I find too much brain-using work! That is why I so enjoy the lighter things.


Sah doens't fulfill everyone that is for sure. It fulfills me beyond belief. Woh didn't do anything. It was just a job.
