Avoiding the housewife life


I'm actually proud I didn't jump into college after highschool. I'm actually afraid I'll one day just be a housewife. Currently I'm a part-time at home babysitter. I adore the two little girls as much as my man. They think he's Mickey Mouse probably because of his hair line. I'm happy with my job but wish it was more scheduled. 

I spend most of my time alone at home and drive myself insane! With my psych issues it's difficult even visiting my cousin or grocery shopping without all my medication. Did I mention I don't drive? 
Living the lonely life

My man fixed the loving room walls making enough space for when I babysit or hula hoop. Chalkboard wall, coloring table, and use our spare room as our living space. I can't explain how much I appreciate him for helping me. What's in the future though? When I have children my goal isn't to be a housewife. I'm going to succeed with my performing arts. I realized keeping one active goal at a time is the best way to go about success. 

My goal right now is to practice driving enough to take my road test and get my drivers license.

What's your goal?

  1. Hahaha oh yep. I have, oh, let's say 7 college degrees and a license to practice law. Guess which of them I use? NONE! Currently retired from the law practice (at a young age) and a housewife. But I will tell you, it can be a job of sorts. I cook, clean and manage Military Husband's life. Who knows...maybe I will work again someday. But after 13 years of divorce law, I was spent.

    1. I give you housewife's credit! You should be proud to have accomplished all you have and have a husband who serves for our country.

  3. I'm a housewife, but it's okay. It's where I'm needed the most so I don't feel lost or anything.

      naw I think i'll pass on the maid work. Ive done enough for that for the past 12 yrs that a job out of it is ridiculous

    Good idea... Don't become a housewife. Set some goals and achieve them. TICK! Next!

    That's the spirit.

    2. Hi Harlynn

  8. Nice to know your culture there Harlyn! I heard so much about this in movies that going to college in the US is not a big deal. here in the Philippines, regardless of your gender, everyone is expected to go to college, get a good education and career. Most of thr families here have their working moms and dads (making them rich) hahaha.

    I had my goals this year laid out at my latest post. :)

    Excited to see more of your arts and dancing!

    1. Dancing and arts will save me from college education, and my psych issues. Wonder what you were in college for?

  9. College education? Ha, ha! BS in Sociology, no job for that and I barely made it through anyway! Certified as an EMT-B and never got to use that either. What a waste of my Folks (RIP) money!

    1. You should use the education to your advantage! Make them look down proud. I'm sorry you lost your close ones...that's gotta be hard.

  10. I worked full-time with my daughter in daycare, became a SAHM when she started school, and now work part-time from home in a field I love and definitely didn't go to college for. It's the best of both worlds and gives me the balance in being able to tend to my daughter when she's home but I have enough to do when she's at school to keep me busy and earning money.

    1. That's pretty much my long run goal! Be able to spend time with my family and perform occasionally for some good cash flow.
