Love Byte # 10 - The Householder

Its hard to believe its been an entire year since I quit working and am a full time housewife or homemaker as I'd like to call myself ..If I'd walk you down memory lane, you'll realize that quitting my job was probably one of the most difficult and formidable decisions I've had to make in my whole life.. I'd been working for 6 years and 4 of those were in the same organization, I mean I couldn't imagine for a while what I would do ..no matter how much I bitched about work , office politics , shrewd colleagues , I'll admit I thrived on it too .. but such is life and so when the decision had to be made it was family first ..and so it always has been for me ..

So avowedly it was quite hard but in the same breath it was quite exciting too ..the prospect of sleeping in late , doing what I wanted was suddenly more appealing that working .. In fact I had embraced the change from working to homemaker even before it began , talk about anticipation :P
And I am glad I took it as a challenge coz its been a good infact great year .. I've travelled like crazy almost the whole of the year, visited some pretty awesome places, I started blogging an absolute impossibility 6 months back , I managed to join yoga , learn a Brazilian dance form .. believe it or not I also simultaneously did and still do the cooking, the cleaning, the washing, the vacuuming, the dusting, the ironing and the whole exciting package that comes with household chores.. and most of the days I enjoy it but somedays I'm all mad and infuriated , then I wish I were a man I could get away with simply going to work and all this while I keep cussing under my breath ..but then thats some days and thats forgivable .. I am after all an erring human :P :D

Well the crux of this post is that Love has the power to make the mundane bearable and even enjoyable because Love is making lemonade out of the lemons that life gives you ..
So raise your glasses and drink all you can ..Cheers !!

  7. I loved this post - I still remember 17 years ago when I opted to come home and finish raising my son - it really was the hardest thing to do - and the best! I had a terrible adjustment and then found my rhythn. There have been days I HATE doing the house but most days? I realize how absolutely blessed I am to be able to have gotten off the 8 to 5 treadmill.


Thank you for leaving me a message ..You've just made my day ..you've just made me smile :) :)
