This post has been formulating in my head for a long time now. Not sure of the exact reason that it has not been typed. Maybe time? Maybe embarrassment? Maybe pointless?
Many of you knew me growing up. I did not have a brother but I had a dad. He taught us how to throw a ball, kill a bug, move heavy furniture, fix things around a house, etc. I didn't really date or crush to hard on boys. I never was too into make up or full day shopping.
Then after high school, I lived on my "own" for nearly 10 years. I paid bills, changed flat tires, did all my grocery shopping, traveled alone, got the rent in ontime and all the things that come along with INDEPEDENCY!
But then I met Shawn and all the above stayed pretty much the same as we dated.
Then we got married.
I started to cry more, get my feelings hurt, hated when he stays late at work and never calls, wishing I had Shantel's closet to raid, preferred TV like What Not To Wear to CSI.... ( I still love to watch sports though ), and honestly have a favorite appliance, it is the dishwasher!
It was then that I thought I was turning into a 'girly girl' but that faded quickly
I have finaly landed on what I think the "problem" was. I have just never felt more like a girl until I married a man. This still holds true for me nearly 3 years later.
And now that I am in the girliest stage of my life (pregnancy), feeling girly is becoming more and more true. And then after being pregnant, I will be a mother. One doesn't use the word mother usually in the same sentence with tomboy. Usually?
Anyways, so now that I have realized it and want to share my news, here are my confessions to prove it!
There is one last confession I must make that is a little embarrassing. As I gradually have changed from a tomboy to a pregnant soon to be mom, I have really evolved into someone who wants the house to be clean(er). So a few months ago, I did something weird. I made a list of things I will do each day of the week. And because I am a teacher, the chore first letter matches the first letter of the day of the week. Here they are...get ready to laugh if you still wish I was the old tomboy. And get ready to say "told you so" to all the longtime girly girl, pregos, mothers reading this!
Sunday or Saturday - Civic (soft /c/ says /s/) and Sweep
Monday - Mop (and I need to add Memory Lain to that so I will blog once a week)
Tuesday - Toilets...and I do the sink in bathrooms too
Wednesday - Wipe (dust) and Water the plants
Thursday - Throw out (trash/recycle) or Throw Away (mail/junk/clutter)
Friday - Fans (dust) and Fish Tank (add more water)
Everyday (or every other ish) requires LAUNDRY and DISHES. None of the days of the week begin with L or D and one should defintely NOT wait this long between these chores. A sink is not big enough and laundry will take forever....believe me, I know.
Ok, confession time is over. Do you feel like a priest?
