But I’m Not a Housewife!

Domestic Bliss, Eventually

Archive for Turning Over a New Leaf

Day One

I’m staging an intervention for myself. I’ve just turned 30 and I’m still so domestically challenged that I often just give up. I’m one of those leave it for weeks until the in-laws are coming types of people.

And I don’t want to be like this anymore.

Who isn’t happier when she has a clean, fresh home?

My husband and I don’t own a home yet and we don’t yet have children. We plan to change both of those things within the next 5 years. I’m lucky to have a husband who enjoys cooking – when I’m trying my darnedest to learn to enjoy it. I want to give back to my family.

And one more thing: I am the child of a compulsive hoarder. You may have seen the episodes about this phenomenon on Oprah. It’s just as bad as it looks. Thus, I have my work cut out for me!

I want to learn to keep my house clean, fresh, inviting, and cozy.

I’m 30 years old and I vow to change my domestic ways.

It is obvious to me that if I can do this anyone can!

So join me on my journey. Offer me encouragement. Ask me to post photos of my house so that I am accountable. Learn from my mistakes and share your best tips with me.

As I turn over a new leaf, I vow to make journey more fun than chore – if that is even possible!
