Fridays are for fun, so why do I feel so UGH?


Ever feel like your life is not your own? You stay at home moms and housewives will know what I mean. I work from home, part time, so my own "just me" life is very, very simple. Husband's isn't, so I feel like my life is really just his. It's not his fault, it's not my fault, it's just the way it is. Like, the things about my life aren't as important, so they don't take a forefront. I'm not saying that to be self deprecating, it's absolutely true, the things that happen to me during an average day aren't as important in the grand scheme of things. I just feel so silly showing him the jewelry I've made or the embroidery I've done, then he tells me about his day at work, which is full of real life adult stuff. I'm terribly afraid that one day (perhaps in the not so far away future) we'll have to move to Houston, then I will really be alone, 4 hours away from all of my friends and family, and my life will be even simpler. And by simple I mean LAME.

I feel the need for retail therapy.

I totally second the retail therapy!

Yeah, I feel that way about writing at home, definitely, sometimes. You put it really well :)

I hear ya! I feel the same way at times except it's just the kids and I. Being a single mom who works from home it begins to feel like my life revolves and belongs to them. Not that that is such a bad thing but it gets tiring at times. But it sure feels great to be a mom, doesn't it? :)

BTW I stumbled upon your blog through entrecard drops.
