It really isn't about being lazy...

I SOOOO look forward to the day I can be a stay at home wife/mother. But not so I don't have to go to work, I actually really enjoy my job; but so I can better care for my sweet husband. I wish that I could be better now at the laundry, cooking, cleaning, AND having fun, but I am so lacking in every area. I work every day from 9am-6pm, but we leave the house at 7ish so Jamison gets to work on time, and I get dropped off at my parents so I can get a ride to work a little later. Jamison usually gets off of work a couple of hours before me, but is often caught up with paperwork to do, yardwork at our house, or other "manly" things...and by the time I'm off work he's either starving or has already made himself something quick to eat. So I very rarely cook dinner for the two of us, and usually just make up something quick or we stop and eat with the family before heading home....sad. I love spending time with my family, but I would love having dinner ready and waiting on the table for when the love of my life gets home from a hard day's work.
To top it off, I am usually pooped after work and have no desire whatsoever to do laundry, clean, or anything of the kind. I was okay when it would still be sunny outside when I got off work, but now that it's darker sooner, all my body wants to do is rest when I'm off for the night. I won't be a stay at home wife for some time though, so I have personally decided that my new years resolution is to be better at tending to the general needs of my sweetheart. I'm no super wife like most women I know, so I can't be working on scrapbooks in one room while having a roast in the oven, and a load of laundry going, and playing a game with the family... but I'll get there! Step by step I'll do the best I can in this game I call, *"Forget yourself and serve your man". We'll see how it goes! :) Help!

*He did NOT put me up to this, nor does he make it so I'm the only one doing the cleaning and such, actually it's quite the opposite. He serves me SO well, and it's time I do my part to the fullest and serve him unfailingly. Here's to feeling good about serving!!!
