Sorry for lack of posts. Honestly, I feel like a blogger failure. Oh well.
So I’ve been thrown for a bit of a loop and I got a bad mark as a housewife – I failed to truly listen to one of M’s goals. He has a goal of earning a set amount of money together – I’d need to earn about 1/3 of it. I had forgotten that was one of his goals. I heard the words but didn’t listen. Bad Aella. He mentioned it again the other day and I feel I finally listened. Clearly this housewife thing isn’t going as well for him as I thought. So I’m starting to slowly look for work again. It’s just a tad depressing. I’ve been processing it in my head the last few days. I need a structured job – as much as I want to work decluttering people’s homes, I can’t seem to go out and find clients. So back to looking for government work and how much it would cost to go back to school (a lot).
In other news, I’m preparing for a “low tech” August. The goal is to not use my computer until 6pm everyday in August. I find that I get more done with the computer off. As I wander around my house bored I enivitably clean little bits and pieces. I’m not quite sure if I want it to be a low-tech month or a House Pride month. I want to do a House Pride month for sure at some point. A lot of the blogs I read about vintage housewives wasn’t just they cleaned a lot but they took pride in how their home looked. I kind of want to do that. I’ve even made a list of tasks to try working through in my low-tech month. Also low-tech really just means no computer. I can still play on the 3ds and on my phone. I’d lose so quickly if I couldn’t have any technology. We’ll see how things go.
Do you have pride in your house? Would you be interested in such a challenge?
