    I Love What I Do!

    I was doing some weeding out of my EP groups this morning because I decided that I did not want to have all of these groups with no stories in them, then, I ran across this one. I hesitated and decided that I would write a story in this one, I felt it worthy. I don’t remember...

    Finally At Peace

    Having read some very interesting claims from

    feminist bloggers and web-news articles I felt compelled to cite evidence that there are feminists who enjoy being housewives. Knowing that the English language is a moving, fluid thing, I feel the static definition of “housewife” is long overdue for refreshing. I base my...

    I love being a housewife. To me, there's nothing better than being able to create your own schedule, doing what you want when you want every day, and not having someone be over your shoulder telling you what to do. And I enjoy cooking, cleaning, yardwork and decorating, so for me...
