Domesticated housewife

I don't pride myself on being a very good housewife. Don't get me wrong I try very hard but I'm not exactly what some may call "traditional". Well Thursday's I get off work early and this is what I was up to today...

First I made our bed. This rarely happens...

Then a little surprise for the hubby when we get in bed ;)

Then I started baking a cake do while it baked I did a little crafting...

Next I washed the of my least favorite things to do.

Cake got done and I frosted it. Then decorated it...let's just say that I grossly overestimated how many baby chocolate chips I would need...

Now that all of that is done I guess I'll go for my run.

And that my friends is how I practiced being a good Mormon house wife today ;)

Life is a Journey....lately I haven't been finding much joy in my journey. I've been so busy that I hardly slow down to enjoy all of the things that I'm doing to fill my schedule. I feel like I rush from one activity or task to the next with little time in between to actually think about or enjoy what I'm doing. After I got home from my wonderful trip to Wyoming...(Post about my trip to come) I somewhat felt let down. Depressed to be back to the daily grind of my life. A large part of that sadness comes from being homesick and from dearly missing my family. But I think that another part of it came from missing the simplicity of family life in Wyoming.
Starting today I am going to simplify. Cut back of the daily and weekly activities that keep me busy but that take me away from happiness. I need happiness and when I'm not happy I'm afraid that Scott isn't happy. So here's to simplifying and therefore finding more peace and happiness!

 “If you want happiness for an hour – take a nap. If you want happiness for a day – go fishing. If you want happiness for a month – get married. If you want happiness for a year – inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime – help someone else.” – Chinese Proverb
