    Just want a friend

    I'm married to a good man. That alone is hard to find. I have no life but the confines of my own home. I do not socialize at bars I don't drink. I don't have friends that share my love for crafting, or any home making stuff at all. I was hoping to find other wives to swap recipes...

    Fat and Bored!

    Being a housewife is by far the most boring job I have ever had. I wish, wish wish I could find a part time job. I have probably gained 60 pounds this year. No joke.
