I really wanna be a housewife
Since I’ve moved in with my parents (and lost my job) I’ve been “paying rent” by basically being the housekeeper and nanny, and I LOVE it!
I wake up at five to cook breakfast for everyone and get them all off to work and school, I make their lunches too!
I do the dishes and laundry, sweep and vacuum, tidy and clean all day, I cook supper and get my younger brother and sister off to bed, I go to sleep exhausted and thinking about the food I’m gonna cook tomorrow and the chores I have to do!
I go grocery shopping by bus (cause I don’t have a car), and go to the market, I budget and schedule everyone’s work and school things, and I really love doing it!
I love when my arms hurt cause I’ve been scrubbing the bathroom, or my back aches from mopping the kitchen, and I WANT to be a stay at home wife, caring for my house and home and my family.
But with the way the world works nowadays, that’s unlikely. I still love what I’m studying, and look forward to getting my degree and getting a job in the career I chose.
but if I had 100% control over my choice, no money issues or anything, I would want to stay home. I know this is kinda dumb to be sad about, but it’s the job I want and know I’m probably not gonna get.
