Now, I have realized that I will be wearing the title "house wife" myself - for a year. But the big difference between myself and the real rich house wives, is that I am not married to a rich husband and we are not close to as wealthy or glamorous as those exposed on television. But I must say my days do look a little bit a like theirs.. LOL.
I work out at the gym, almost every day, and I have stared to golf. I eat lunch with my friends - almost every day! And I shop everything from make up, clothes, shoes, house decoration, I run to the hairdresser, and I do manicure and pedicure every other week. I am on line where ever I go, with iphone and soon an ipad. I do dinner out with girlfriends and we do what the reality wives do on televisions too - gossip!
But then there is a different side of a house wife too. Maybe more for me than the reality show house wives with lots of money. I do clean my house by myself, I do all grocery shopping, I cook dinners, I do laundry, I spend 3 hours in the car every day picking up and dropping of kids at school and activities every day. I volunteer, I help out at school and daycare. I plan dinner parties, I plan vacations, I deal with banks, insurance people, the gardner and the pool people. I spend hours trying to fix printers and non-functioning high-tech stuff.. I deal with every single problem that arrises. - NOT that glamorous! Rather tiering to tell the truth.
When this year has passed and I will be putting my House Wife title away, I am planning to translate it and add it onto my CV as the greatest Event planner and the most fabulous ultimate organizer.
I have this year become constantly creative and when a problem occurs it will always be solved no matter what, and if required also communicated in a different language (thank you google translator). I know how to handle small children who are acting up and still keep a perfectly normal conversation with an adult. Within a very short time frame I can be prepared for any event at any time. I can see the broad perspective on things and I am also the most perfect organizer - by the minute. My line of work also requires constant muli-tasking knowledge. I am a very flexible person since my every day schedule some how always change. I am also used to long work hours - usually between 0630 - midnight.
Through my everyday interaction with people from the friend level to the higher end, I have become very knowledgeable in the field of human behavior and I read people easily. Being able to interact with different people I have also become quite the diplomate and with my extensive network of friends from all over the world I can easily access information that would be hard to come by if you are not a native... .....WOW! All this, every day and always looking fabulous! *smiling*
