My husband got a really awesome new job a few months ago. We have no kids and I was working part time in an office that was really dramatic- so we talked and he said why don’t I just quit? He makes more than enough money to support us- and I like to cook, paint, and garden so I thought I might try out the housewife life.
I love it. I’m actually busier than ever. I do lots of cooking, painting, I do projects around the house- and I am involved in a ton of charity work around the community.
My friends and family have been treating me differently ever since I took on this new lifestyle. I get scoffed at whenever I say I’m busy.. my friends have cracked jokes about me using my husbands card at the bar- My parents have even hinted that I’m a FREELOADER.
How do I show people that being a housewife is perfectly fine? Oh- and that not having a job doesn’t mean I’m just a lazy bum?
