Like Kelli, I've been questioning my role as Woman and Wife lately. I want desperately to be a good Wife to my husband, but have no idea how to go about doing so. Am I supposed to be a June Cleaver type with the vacuum and the pearls? Have everything sparkling, and a gourmet meal on the table promptly at 5? Is that normal or completely insane? Is Martha Stewart really happy?
Not to mention, how do I find the balance between Wife and Woman? What about my dreams as Writer? How can I fit all of these personas into one 24 hour day? Is 5 a.m. the answer to it all?
I called Kelli after I read her blog and we made a pact. We're going to encourage each other to pull off this 5 a.m. plan. The problem is, we both like sleeping in WAY too much. And on rainy mornings like today, it's so much more fulfilling to roll over and snuggle my body up against my warm, softly snoring husband, to feel my little dog cuddle up against my chest and sigh that deep sigh which can only come from a creature who is perfectly content.
Aren't those the moments most worth it?
