Domestic Goddess

My mom has been out of town playing with her bestest friend since forever and so I have been playing mommy to the fam. I have loved pretending to be a domestic goddess, trying out new recipes and cooking more than I have in I dont know how long. My favorite website is Recipezaar.com cause you type in ingredients and it will pull up recipes. So I have been able to use freezer stuff and pantry stuff to make all kinds of fun things.

It sucked to come back to work today. I could have stayed home and continued "playing" forever. Once again, I am faced with the reality that I was born in the wrong era. Damn all you women's libbers that made it almost impossible to be a stay at home mom. (Nevermind that my own choices didn't help my chances for that anyway...) Cause I like cooking and keeping house (even if Reed makes keeping it clean almost impossible.) I like baking cookies and perfecting my less than perfect culinary skills. I like my bra.... or at least what it does for me. Damn women's libbers.... Although I do appreciate some of what they accomplished, a lot of it did nothing for us and its sad to see their work go down the tubes as girls have cycled back to only being valued for their waif-like, unfeminine bodies and silicone breasts. But thats another blog for another day.

OH TO BE A HOUSEWIFE....

I love recipezaar. I use it every day. Don't worry, I know someday you will get to be a housewife and then you will have moments when you wish you could go to work so you can have a break. However, I love your moms method of taking a break. We should make sure we do that when we get older. Girls weekend.

Oh the grass is always greener. I agree that woman's lib. for the most part is the downfall of society. I think that kids need to be raised by their mothers and that the world would be a healthier place if moms were home cooking. I don't think it is as impossible though as most women think it is. My husband makes next to nothing but we sacrifice and work hard for me to stay at home. I do what I can to help make ends meet but we work hard for me to stay home. The same things mothers did before- make food from scratch, not go out to eat, plant a garden... women did that because they had to but we stopped somewhere along the way because it seemed easier not to. But convinece requires 2 incomes for the most part. Yet aren't you glad some days that you can provide for your family? Think of what it would be like if you had to take in mending and ironing and washing and borders (or strange men) like single moms of old did. I am glad to know that if something happened to my husband I would be able to make the same pay as men with my qualifications. Ok ramblings of Tiffany- just thought I would share my 2 cents

I think the whole idea of a boarding house is kinda cool. Of couse safety would always be a concern. But I guess I have watched Little Women too many times.
