I loved my old theme, but I thought it was time for a fresh update. This one fits me better I think. A good hour of my life was spent looking at different themes yesterday trying to find the right one. That’s what you do when you’re unemployed. . . I mean, a housewife. You have time to look at blog themes, go to a bookstore just to read gossip magazines, spend hours in Bed Bath and Beyond just to buy potpourri refills, make up menus and grocery lists for the upcoming week, and cook extravagant meals. (I’m not saying I actually DO all of these things). Last week as I was filling out paper work at the doctor’s office, Kevin quickly corrected me when I wrote “unemployed” under occupation. He said, “you should say housewife.” So a housewife is what I’ve become. Being a housewife has made me want to clean, it’s made me want to get out of my pj’s before noon, have dinner cooking by 5, go shopping, all those lovely things that housewives do. Don’t get me wrong, I’m also looking for a job in the meantime but I’m finding most businesses are in no way looking to hire right now. I don’t blame them, I guess. So for now, I will stick with my job as a housewife. I could really get used to it.
Milo has been keeping me company during the days so I don’t feel too lonely. He’s been a great little companion. He won’t let me out of his sight for a second. If I’m in the office, he’s asleep at my feet. If I’m in the bathroom, he’s right outside the door. And as usual, if I’m in the kitchen. . . he’s right there waiting for me to give him just a tiny taste of whatever it is I’m making. It usually results in a huge let down, but every once in a while he gets to lick the tuna can. He’s actually really smart when he wants to be. . . despite what Kevin has said before. He sleeps in a cage at night because we are selfish and like to have the bed to ourselves, and if he isn’t locked up he always finds a way to get up and snuggle right in between us. So we have trained him with treats to get into his cage all by himself. I think he’s a lot like me in that he really loves having a routine. He knows when bedtime is and will start to get anxious if we stay up later than usual. I hope we will be able to train our kids to go to bed as easily as he does.
And yes, I do talk to him like a baby. He is my baby for now.
