Playing Housewife!

 Housewife (Net Picture)

Housewife (Net Picture)

On Monday i went back home and i found my house in a mess, when i say a mess i really mean that or may be it’s not a word enough to explain what was happening. Anyway i had to send my housemaid packing.

This gave me an opportunity to stay at home and play ‘housewife’, i took leave to take care of my family. Trust me i now understand ‘desperate housewives’ is real.

I had to wake up early than usual to prepare for my kids that are running to school.

Once everyone has gone, i had to clean up, clean the house, wash clothes, wash utensils, and anything dirty around.

By the time am through with that, its time to fix lunch, pick kids from school.

After lunch, it’s time to iron, ironing on a hot sunny day has never been fun… well to me, it has never.

It’s around 10pm and i have to prepare dinner, ‘I have to cook some food, make juice, evening tea… a lot of work to be done!’ i said to my self. However am tired, and yet after dinner i will have more to wash… i took a breath.

I came to notice some things.

By the time you retire from your daily activities around the house, your too tired.

As soon everyone leaves the house you start thinking about their coming back.

You will take care of everyone apart from yourself.

I need to reduce my expectations from my next maid, being home all day is as hectic as running around office.

This story was told to me by a friend.
Hope she is not alone.
(..doesn’t enjoy being a housewife).
