Round Two

I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. A friend of the family told me about this blog and I checked it out. I was entertained and a bit embarrassed. I don't want to be "one of those people." Yuck. I've always thought that blogging was a strange phenomenon anyway... who would ever want to read all of the things that go through my head? So I abandoned the blog, and spent the summer hanging out with Mr. Domestic while he was out of school and playing outside with the Little Girl.

School has started, it's getting cold outside, and I seem to have a little more time on my hands. I've found that I am in need of a hobby. A cheap hobby. I'm going to give this thing another shot. I like the idea of having a place to put my thoughts and track my progress in becoming a "domestic" wife and mother (not to be confused with "domesticated").

The word domestic may ruffle some feathers. At first, it sounds old fashioned and maybe even a bit chauvinist. But thanks to Dictionary.com, the real meaning of the word is a perfect description of how I view my role as a wife and mother.



1.of or pertaining to the home, the household, household affairs, or the family: domestic pleasures.
2.devoted to home life or household affairs.
5.indigenous to or produced or made within one's own country;not foreign; native: domestic goods.

That I can do.
