I bet in reality you’re just a mediocre housewife.
Maybe you have kids, or maybe you’re childless staying at home (like me). You probably feel guilty about that.
Someone, at some point, has made you feel like you don’t always do enough, even though most days you are exhausted and go to bed with so many things left to do. You stay busy and what you do is important to your home and to you.
We all fall short of someone else’s arbitrary measure of skill or success. As long as we do exactly what we want and what is best for us, we’ve done it perfectly.
Not everyone is Pinterest-perfect. Who has time for that sh*t, anyway??I’m a mediocre housewife. I am a childless stay-at-home-wife, but I have a job.
In my time of being a married woman and becoming a homemaker, I’ve come to love my job. My job is to make our house a home, to develop myself in whatever areas I see fit to explore, and to take care of our family to the best of my ability.
Sometimes my ability is better than other times. Sometimes I’m just downright mediocre.
But you know what? That’s okay, and I know I’m not alone.
Being a housewife doesn’t make you lazy, or unimportant, or old-fashioned. You don’t have to be religious to enjoy being a homemaker. And running a childless home doesn’t make my day any less important than anyone else’s day. This setup works for us.
If your setup works for you, defend it vehemently.
At Mediocre Housewife I promise to (irreverently, at times) always inspire and motivate you to honor that in every way.
My name is Shanna (it rhymes with iguana). I’m married to a mediocre homeowner and we have a dog and two cats. We live in South Carolina where we both work from home and dream about our next trip to the Outer Banks. It’s magical there.
