Not Cut Out For This

I could *not* be a stay at home wife. I've cleaned all that could be cleaned, all the laundry is done (mostly, it's in the drier), and Mark is making dinner tonight (waffles :D). I guess if I had kids to take care of. At least I'd be getting snacks, cleaning up messes, changing diapers, something besides taking care of myself.

Even if I had a hobby, like scrapbooking. I do have a wedding scrapbook, and a christmas scrapbook to do (eventually), *but* I have NO pictures. They're all digital. I potentially could go to Wal-Mart or Target (tar-zhay') to print them out.
I would, if Mark hadn't taken my car to work. His jeep is out of gas, and I'm scared to drive it. Honestly! Like, I feel so small in it. Besides, I'd go nuts with all the trash in it. I confess, I have cleaned it out several times *sheepish smile* but it's cold outside right now.
Another thing, I have only 4 dollars to my name, thanks to a little oops in paying loans and bills. But that's ok because I'm starting my job Monday.

I thought about making cookies, the peanut butter ones with Hershey's kisses on them, but I have nothing to store them in. I have a ton of round canisters (like three people gave me different sets), but those kinds of cookies require a big rectangular thingy, or else, the kisses smash against the cookies. Ask me, go ahead, ask me how I know this.

I even (please, help me!) thought about playing Mark's GameCube. *shudders* I'd do it if he had some games I'd play. He's only got a few boy games, like a WWII soldier game, a Star Wars game, Super Mario Smash Brothers' game, and a few other sporty ones (soccer, basketball).
I even conquered the bathroom. Let me tell you something, that was a feat in itself! I think it's been cleaned maybe, possibly once since Mark moved in. I used a ton of bleach *muahahahaha* that'll get rid of anything trying to grow anywhere. I also found out something. Toilet bowl cleaner, the kind that get rids of lime scale in toilets, also worked on the tub. Like, all that soap scum all over the tub, gone! I even emptied the trash. But, unfortunately, I didn't make it to the floor. It's such a small floor, that I debated for a long time whether or not using a Swiffer mop pad was necessary. I didn't have anything else to mop, so I let it go, for now. But don't worry, I'll tackle it one of these days.

Pizza Hut just came out with a "new" crust/pizza. Pizza Mia. In Trinidad, that was the kind of crust we ordered from Pizza Hut. Remember, Hannah, and my family??

Anyways, sorry for the rabbit trail. I've been watching the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader training camp on TV. You'd think they'd be all about superficial things, like hair, make-up, weight, stuff like that. And, they are, but they also make them be graceful off the field. Like, they brought in the professionals to teach them social graces, like which side the sweet tea spoon goes on. I don't even know that. They made them set the tables, the ones with four forks, three spoons, two plates, and three cups, and stuff like that. I just thought I'd share.

I took down the Christmas tree today. I discovered we have more than 24 ornaments. I didn't think we had that many. Our little tree was really bare. After I got it taken apart, I spent a good 15 minutes trying to figure out how to fit in the box. The biggest piece seemed to long, until I put it on the bottom, that is. See, I can be smart when necessary.

So, the curtains Mark and I hung, the other day, are too long. They sit right in front of our baseboard heaters. We didn't hold them up, or even thing about it. So, I had this great idea to hang them up higher. Think it solved the problem? Nope. They're still too long, and they can't really go up any higher, else they'll be sitting on the ceiling. So next time we go visit my parents, I'm going to be using their sewing machine. If they'll let me, that is. :)

So yeah, I'm not cut out to be a stay at home person. At least, not at this time in my life. Ask me after we get our little family growing a bit, I might have changed my mind :)

  1. Hahaha! Now you know how hard it is be stay-at-home-wifey. B-O-R-I-N-G! Nothing good's ever on TV during the day. But yes, it IS a whole lot more interesting with kids, 'cause then you're running around, trying to get everything done during naps, then trying to entertain someone with an attention span of maybe three SECONDS, feeding (I sprayed poor Stephen in the eye today, poor guy), cleaning, etc. Fun stuff. And then the husband/Daddy comes home, plops on the couch, kicks off his boots in the middle of the Living Room (after you spend all day trying to straighten up that VERY room!), throws his socks at the dog (who promptly runs off and hides them), and bellows, "Where's my dinner, woman?!" *sigh* A never-ending battle of wits. LOL

    Yep, I remember that kind of pizza crust. Remember the Pizza Hut in Grenada--it was a nice sit-down restaurant with booths and everything. Not like the ugly take out places here. What I really miss is Rick's Cafe--his pizza sauce was kinda sweet and tangy. I haven't had anything like it since.

  3. After Josh and I got married I basically said the same thing as you in regards to staying home. I think I would have become a terribly lazy unmotivated person! Now, however, I would LOVE to be able to stay home. Soon, very soon....
