I hate the term housewife. I hate it even more so since these beyond ridiculous shows about women acting like high school children have come out.
I am so much more than a “housewife”. I am keeper of all things. Money to lost shoes. I am plumber and IT specialist. I am mom and maid. Taxi driver and Escort. If you can think up anything a women could possibly be, yeah I am or have played that role at one point or another.
But you’re never going to find camera following me or me basking in 15 minutes of fame at any point, because the truth is a “Real Housewife”, well her life sucks, its not anything anyone would want to watch. I mean really, would you want to see me blogging in my spare time, washing laundry and cursing at my 6 year old after he just poured every bottle of everything he could find in my master bathroom down the drain?
Or maybe you want to see me trying (“Trying”) to run my online Etsy shop, and carve out something for myself and my future.
Even my marriage. Purely perfect compared to the dysfunction of what is on TV. We don’t even fight about the money we don’t have. 17 years and not one fight.
To be honest. I think the only thing TV worthy in my life would be me tripping on the treadmill. And though funny as it is, and it is funny. This too is maybe only worth 2 minutes of TV fame.
So there is it, the quick and simple of Me. A Housewife in New Jersey.
Living just another day in paradise.
ps: Is spring break over yet? can my kids go back to school!!??
