Staying Home

I am a stay at home mom. My kids are both in school and I still stay home. On numerous occasions I have heard things like how bored I will get, it won’t be long before I get a job to get out of the house, I will start spending all our money out of boredom. There is something the good people of Magnolia don’t know. That’s ME! No one in Anza would have said those things to me because they know I will always find something to do. Back there we had a ranch too so how could I ever get bored.

Now I have time to do anything and everything I could possibly want. Which started with working out. I don’t go pay a gym to work out either. Working out from home is easy and fun. I can do it on my time and don’t have to share anything with other people. My space and my time. I am proud to say this is the first time I haven’t stopped working out after 2 or 3 weeks of starting. It has been 10 weeks and I am still going strong. With the exception of taking a few days off last week from being extremely sick.(in which case I was soo bored) I am still sick but not sick enough to skip my workout.

The look you get when you tell people you’re a stay at home mom and then they ask the age of your kids is disturbing. I don’t look at you like that when you tell me how much money you spent just because you think you can. But really, all your cards are maxed out, your bills are late and you still have your latte in hand from Starbucks. That’s your business and this is mine!

I never thought of what I would want to do after both of my kids were in school. They are 5 years apart and it seemed like that day would never come. When it finally did, I knew for sure I didn’t want to spend it at some job I wasn’t in love with. I am in love with this job. They drive me crazy and my house is a work in progress but I wouldn’t change this job for the world! I get to be at all of their stuff for school. We have time together everyday to do whatever we please. This is where I belong.

When I hear your shitty comments and I know you are a stay at home mom too, I know you aren’t happy being one. I am! With my kids, without my kids. Husband half the time. It’s the life we live and we love it! Without doing the things we do, we wouldn’t have much of a life we love.

Live the life you love!

Happy Wednesday My Friends

  1. People say this to me all the time! Even though I’m in school people always tell me they don’t understand how I can just stay home. Believe me I stay busy.
