Don’t get any funny ideas- that doesn’t mean that I know longer want a husband, it just means I want a wife like me. I want someone else to worry about all these things once in a while so I can just be me.
Every day my head is swimming with all the things I have to do and all the things I want to do. As with most cases, the things I want to do come last. I get up every day and there is wash to be done. I have to keep track of groceries so I have things to cook and pack for lunch. A quick stop at the grocery is never quick. By the time I finish that and stop for gas and get home-it is late. Then when I put the groceries away I have to clean the fridge a bit and organize the pantry it gets later. Cook dinner and clean up and start thinking of the next day. By now, I just want to sit down.
This is why I don’t get in my bead room as often as I like or write as often as I like. I am a very organized person-that is not the issue. I have many interests and things I like to do-oh okay-that COULD be part of the issue. I find life exciting and I want it all!!!
If someone else took on my wife brain for a day though, the things I could CREATE!!!
With summer here I am going to try and see if I can create full days with no duties so that I can spend time doing what I like to do.
Surely some time management and scheduling is needed. I have actually come up with a few tricks that work for me. But that is another post.
In the meantime, I need to get to work!
Disclaimer: I love my husband and I love being his wife. All my wifely duties are mainly self-imposed (being an over achiever is not fun). Being a wife is a full time job and I could easily be a stay at home wife and I would NEVER be bored. Meanwhile, if you know a wife I could hire for a few days let me know.

Your turn: If you could have a wife, what would she do?
