Dust off those pie plates and start those ovens. The housewife is back!!!
Y'all I refuse to watch the news these days. It's just downright depressing with all the talk of a struggling economy, political cat fights, the housing crisis, and the crushing anxiety of unemployment. I don't intend to stick my head in the sand but I need a break. I'm trying to concentrate on good things and take care of my family. Lately I've been watching retro shows on TV Land, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and Leave It to Beaver. It's been truly a nice change from all those disgusting reality shows. And to tell you the truth, watching these old programs encourages me to be a better housewife. And I must not be the only one because I found a very interesting article this afternoon.
The article stated that a large percentage of women are going back to the basics. They have been quitting their jobs and going back to the traditional housewife status. More and more housewives are appearing as the financial crisis is spreading across the globe. Many have decided to trade corporate life for housewife. They are raising children as they are reaching for their cookbooks. And that's not all, craft supplies, cooking essentials, gardening, and sewing machine sales are increasing by the minute. I guess the old-fashioned frugal lifestyle is becoming more of the mindset of American women.
