Notes from a Bored Housewife

I quit!....Yes I quit my F***** up job....that was the only way of remaining sane!

And yes am back to being a boring housewife again...!

Life as a housewife sounds busy...all the cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping that one needs to do (ahem...i have a maid for most of these though!).....so the biggest question everybody seems to ask me is..."So how is life being a housewife?".....

Well...Hubby dear has put it well..."Its the best job that u can do right now".....and now that I evaluate it...it has every element of a job u see....

1) I spend so much time with the laptop chatting with friends that am afraid I might have an affair with it soon
2) I have lunch "meetings" with Oprah--oprah show couldnt have better timing:-)
3) My "assignments" include making special dinner requests for hubby and planning for parties...(p.s:- we'r having a predated Bday party for hubby dear tomorrow)
4) The absence of my "reportee"(the maid:-)....is the biggest "stress" factor in my job as a housewife....
5) Hubby leaving office at 6:00 pm sharp is one of the major sources of "excitment" in my job as a housewife
6) I am soon gonna develop an expertise on programs aired on Discovery channels...I know the timing of practically every serial on the channels...have found a new best friend at work...the TV!

No wonder many housewives get addicted to their jobs...its a job noone wants to quit.....!!!....

Well for now am trying to catch in all the 'work experience" in my job as a housewife...till I get into the corporate rut again...as they say ..."a good work experience never goes waste":-)

I keep myself busy with my hobbies and pass time. No complaints unless we start comparing with working women.

looks like the "notes from a bored housewise" are more interesting and "relaxing" than the slogging working ladies...

P.S.: any chances of the bored housewife getting back to slogging work???

pdkhvsorry, that previous message was me.. you HAVE to help.. husband thinks i will bug him to death if i dont get 12 hours of work each day.. and even the temptation of a wife with a better skin, sweeter disposition, and more time to learn cooking.. hasnt cut any ice.. :-((

Don't be a bore housewife, besides your usual chores, do something. Pick up a hobby or how about some social work? Add values too :D

[b]PS:[/b] no disrespect intended, but the word housewife bothers me always :| shud it rather not be Anand's wife & a [b]HOMEMAKER[/b]?

The history of perfume oils dates back to ancient Egypt when these fine scented oils were presented to royalty as

gifts. In modern times, however, when the word "perfume" is said, most people think of department store fragrances,

which consist mainly of the concentrated oil and alcohol solution. Nevertheless, as more and more people are finding

out about them, perfume oils are experiencing great popularity. Here are some interesting facts about perfume oils:

just the opposite ; never worked though i am very well qualified ; wud love to work as i am getting really frustrated being a housewife and doing all the work which is quite thankless.

very nice that u enjoy so much being a housewife:) As for me, I quit my high pay jobs and move over to US to be with my hubby. And have been a housewife for abt a year, initially I felt relaxed and nice staying at home but after sometime I kind of missed the busy and vibrant corporate life:( I am still thinking what to do going forward, thinking how to make it more interesting ...
