To childless homemakers

I already wrote one post about childless homemakers, but I'll write one more here.

Women at all ages and times can absolutely be homemakers. With wise money management, it can be done.

Grocery shopping, meal planning, meal making, budgeting, bill paying, cleaning and taking care of animals if any all take some time and effort to do.

It takes the pressure off the breadwinner husband for the housewife to do these things and enables him to focus on his work.

Deal with one car, live in a smaller dwelling and sell stuff if you have to! Living simply is worth it.

Sorry this article is off a forum as I can't seem to find it off cnn.com:

The comments are insulting as usual...

Homemaking books

I'd love to read a few homemaking books I've read about on the web:

-"Queen of the Home" by Jennifer McBride
-"Passionate Housewives Desperate for God" by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald
-"Happy Housewives" by Darla Shine
-"A matter of good housekeeping" by Lydia Sherman

Any suggestions?

Why do we continue to stigmatize SAHMs?

This is a nice article, written by a SAHM.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

May you spend this weekend in the company of loved ones, my fellow Canadians!

A little rant

I just need to vent a little. I keep things positive for this blog but today I am feeling uneasy...

Whenever I leave our apartment, I get bombarded with questions as to why I am not "working". Doctors, dentists, etc. all bug me. It is frustrating to live in such a feminist culture.

Why would I work when I don't need to? I am not taking a job that someone really needs that way. As far as I know, I live in a free country and am not required to work.

Perhaps I am not defending myself enough or well enough and that's why I keep getting these questions.

I love being my husband's helpmeet and I wouldn't have it any other way! Even if that means I am just a little 50's housewife that waits for her husband to come home to(I was told this recently)!

Feminism and homemaking are not compatible

http://freenortherner.com/2012/09/27/911/

Do you agree with this? I know there is a movement of feminist housewives out there who would disagree, but I think the author has a point as feminism has been violenty anti-housewife from its beginning.

50's housewives

I admire 50's housewives because they worked so hard in taking care of their families! One of the criticism I have occurred as a housewife is that that era is gone now and everyone needs to work. I disagree. Many things are cheaper now than back in the 50's and in some way it is easer to stay home despite the rampant feminism.

So please ignore these comments and enjoy your homemaking! :)
