I 'm a 30 year old mom of two kids and married to a wonderful man.Living in a different country is hard for me,made merealize what i was missing from the smell of the bbq on the street to the shouts and laughter of the kids and teenagers playing tag in the moonlit night. The sweet noise of my mum calling or be it shouting my name.
As a housewife one of your many duties is keeping up with the household chores. I know a lot of people think that being a stay at home mom is easy peezy, not! Don't get me wrong, I am very thankful that my husband has given me the luxury of not having to work and earn money. I do my part in our marriage and its to keep everything together. Lately I have been lagging behind on my house work. Cleaning up over and over again, dusting, laundry,vacuuming,tidying up,washing dishes the cycle just repeats over and over again. The inside of our house needs more decoration, little knick-knacks here and there. I need entertainment centers for the family room and the playroom, more picture frames, shelves,stair runners and window treatments. That is going to be my project for this year, to try and make our house more homey and lived in. Its a good thing I'll be seeing my mom soon so she can give me great tips on how to decorate my house without breaking the bank.
Do you know the good thing about having a laptop is that you can stay online surfing the net or just checking your e-mail anywhere around the house? Laptops nowadays are no longer considered a want but a need, most specially to students that do a lot of research and term papers. My laptop was a gift from hubby last 2008. It's only been lately that I have been using my laptop on a daily basis for the purpose of watching the newest show I am crazy about. With my frequent use I have been noticing that my computer has been running slow of late. I worry if its a virus or if I have used up almost all of the laptop memory. I really hope its not a virus coz if it is I can't afford to have this fixed. Having someone look at your computer or laptop is downright expensive that sometimes it comes to a point its better to buy a new one instead having your old one fix. If that happens I have my eye set on getting those handy Ipad. I really shouldn't get it or even ask my hubby to buy it for me as a gift coz I am not techno savvy and I really have no use for it. I will just have to make sure that my anti-virus is working hard and is keeping those darn viruses at bay.
I am Ms. Practicality, well most of the time. Before buying things I usually think if I need it or I just want it. You see wanting and needing are to different things. Want is something that you really desire and fills almost your every thought or dreams but you don't have any practical use for it. Need on the other hand is something you have to get for the reason that is it useful to you and you use it frequently. I am like that, I do want a lot of things but I try to decide all the time if I want or need it. Lets take for example the newest gift I got for Mother's day from my husband. I have been looking at ipods online and in the stores for the longest time. It is really just a want for my case since I really don't have any use for it. That did not stop me from hounding hubby if he would get it for me as a Mother's day gift. He did not looked convinced when I told him why I wanted it but he knew how long I have been dying to own one so I could listen to music while I clean the house and exercising. By the looks of it I was not getting it but the day before Mother's day he presented me with my very own Ipod Nano. I was so happy but I felt guilty right after. Guilty because I know how much it cost and It is not a need for me but just a want. Oh well, I don't splurge on any other stuff anyways. The two most expensive things I have are my laptop and Ipod. Next time I will try to be more and more practical and only ask hubby to get me gifts that I could really use and need around the house. Aside from what I got I still consider myself Ms. Practicality. How about you?
