Days Spent As A Housewife

I love being his wife. I love my home provided for me by my husband. I am proud of our accomplishments. Even at the end of the day I still love my life.

Not much cooking, cleaning or sewing anymore

I spend every day by myself…Well, not really…

When I get up in the morning, I drink coffee and have a Danish to eat while I watch the news.

Next, I check my email accounts and my calendar to find out what is going on there to remain organized.

Then, I check my Facebook to see what everyone is up to and I pray for those who are requesting prayer or have other concerns….

If on the news something stirs my spirit I light candles and pray for the person or the concern…which reminds me I should be watching the death of Michael Jackson trial on CNN HLN…I really have a lot of concerns regarding this case because:

I did think Michael Jackson was a child molester until I heard exactly what his concerns were in his own voice while under the influence of narcotics. He spoke of nothing immoral. I apologized to his spirit for judging him. I was wrong.

I was completely floored by the hurt Michael Jackson felt about his childhood, but I can’t help but think that there is a component no one brings up and that is Jehovah’s Witnesses. It is an isolationist sect, additionally, when “Thriller” was done I remember that the sect rejected him. For releasing innovative, creative, unique work at such an early age - the group that was his support system excommunicated him. Would that create some “hurt” for a soul like Michael Jackson? I have to say yes.

When it comes to Michael Jackson, there is just so much sadness and misery…for him… and then there are those who simply hate him because he is not some degenerate so they don’t trust him. This is what really made him a “freak”. Michael Jackson lived the best life he knew how to.

Anyway, I love gadgets and enjoy watching the History Channel and other cable shows…Loved The American Horror Story last night!! Awesome!!

Anyway, my husband leaves for work and I make myself something to eat, work out, but nothing too strenuous…

Tomorrow, I am supposed to go to a meeting to set up volunteer work and I am anxious about it. I dread going. So much busy work, accomplishing nothing. Waste time, waste time, be busily busy until the angel of mercy visits …I haven’t told hubby about the latest volunteer work because he always worries about my being out and about. Too much going on with gun control, snowy weather, slick roads...not to mention garden variety crimes. Oh, life on Earth! It's a "pistol"!!

So, I am going back to the trial transcripts right now…while President Obama readies himself for his second term...wonder if he feels like a "lame duck" yet?

My life revolves around the news and other current events. My children are grown and married with children of their own. I never hear from them, which means all is well.

My husband needs very little support, we enjoy watching DVDs together, our bills are minimal therefore our conversation is minimal.

Over the years we have discussed everything to death. I know all his thoughts and he knows mine. We are two sides to the same coin. Our life together is quiet, calm and drama free. We are a comfort to each other. At the end of the day, we have the same memories, we feel the same about various topics. He still tickles me when he gets animated about different political issues because I see him in my mind as the young man he used to be. That young spirited man who stole my heart so long, long ago is still there living, vibrant and taking my breath away.

I love being his wife. I love my home provided for me by my husband. I am proud of our accomplishments. Even at the end of the day I still love my life.
