I kind of suck at my job

I kind of suck at my job.  Not totally suck, just kind of suck.  The kids are fed and clothed and clean and happy (and so is Chris) but I kind of do the bare minimum most times to keep it that way.  I'm not going to lie, they are fed but rarely is it a hot, completely homemade yummy meal.  They are clothed but it's often out of a basket of clean clothes that have yet to be put away.  Considering I don't have to leave my house to work you'd think I could totally keep up on it all and it'd be all together, right?  I'd think so.  But it just doesn't seem to be that way and I'm not sure why.  Maybe I need to try harder or work harder.  Actually, as good as Chris is, he kinda called me out on it.  That was my wake up call.  So, I'm going to start cooking .  My poor family.  I'm also going to hang up and put away clean clothes everyday.  Everyday, do you hear me?  I swear it.  I keep a clean and picked up house so thankfully that's not something I need to change.  I think the whole cooking and hanging up clothes everyday thing is enough to throw me for a loop.  What's funny is that I think most people think that's what stay-at-home moms DO as their job.  It's part of it.  I'd like to say I just focus my time more on what really matters while I'm home raising my kids.  BLOGGING.

What's for dinner at your house?
If you click on the picture he'll dance for you!


  1. I am totally with you on this one. Our situations are different (obviously), but I need to start cooking more. It's just hard because when I cook, it's just for me. If you do it, I'll do it. I'm gonna get out the crock pot...first step. I'll figure out what to put in it later.

  2. I was doing laundry and cleaning the house the other day when Cherry got home from work, so I put the vacuum aside and made her dinner while she Facebooked. Then when she was full, she went to the bedroom for a nap (I may have satisfied her carnal desires before hand, I don't recall, it's all a blur now-a-days), while I cleaned up the dishes and sat alone in the kitchen drinking wine straight from the bottle. It may not be exactly the same thing, but us house bitches gotta stick togetha, sistah!

    The kids are clothed and not starving. You're doing just fine!

  3. Oh, my gosh! I NEVER cook. NEVER! A friend of a friend commented that she never cooks and she feels bad for her poor husband. Mine just sat quietly and smiled, but I knew what he was thinking. He's just too polite to tell the man he feels his pain (in front of me, at least).

    I'm going to start trying too. Tomorrow. Really! Any suggestions? It needs to be easy & it has to taste good or I'll give up and have him pick up dinner on the way home, like usual.

  4. I think they're old enough to start learning how to put away their own clothes, yes? Even if you have to bribe them?


  5. well shit...i am super glad greg doesnt read your blog...i choose naps, shopping, lunching, going to the park...anything over putting clothes away & cooking!
