My Current Home Making Agenda

I’ve realized that I’m not only writing this blog to entertain myself and a few readers.  I’m also writing it because there are no pages on the internet that have a reasonable way to transition from career-woman to home maker.  Sure, lots of women, and a few men, do it when they have kids.  What happens when you get laid off, fired, or just can’t find work?  How are you supposed to magically become a great stay at homer?  Homer.  Mmmm…. doughnuts.

I digress.

I think it would be helpful to tell you where I am at now, with my home making skills.  In the past month that I’ve been here, I’ve gone from doing pretty much nothing, to the following.

  • I make Sean’s lunch and coffee for him to go to work.  At the least, I have his lunch packed the night before and I have the coffee pot set up so he can just turn it on and pour when ready.
  • I have dinner ready for him when he gets home.  He does physical labor and is starving when he walks in the door.  After I coax him to stop walking around dropping metal shavings and paint all over I get him into the shower, I set the coffee table up for him to plop himself down and get his grub on.
  • I set up the couch for him to take a nap as soon as he’s done eating.  I bring out his pillow from the bedroom and set his favorite monkey blanket over the back of the couch so he can just pull it down.
  • I do the dishes at least twice a week.  They need to be done every day.  I hate doing dishes.
  • I do the laundry.  Not so good at getting it folded and put away.
  • I sweep the floor at least twice a week.  Between a hard working man and cat hair, it’s totally necessary.

That’s all I can think of for now.  In all seriousness… this is the extent of what I do.  I don’t make the bed, mop the floor, or any of those other things normal people do.  This is it.

    So the next obvious tasks are to do the dishes every day and fold and take care of all of the laundry each day? I think Holly’s book idea is great too. Can’t wait to hear more from my favorite blogger.

    As a dutiful house husband I offer the following advice:

    1) Swiffer Sweeper Vac. It allows you to sweep/clean more often only faster because…well…sweeping vacuum.

    2) Swiffer Wet Jet. Mopping is so 1999. Plus you’ll love the smell of the floors.
