My name is Katie. I am a twenty-eight year old housewife (homemaker?) and mother of five. I was born and raised in the US but live in Canada. I like to think of myself as a writer.
And now for a bit more about myself. I am well aware that I spend too much time on the computer, although I’m making strides towards changing that. I also know that I hate housework. Really hate it. If I get too focused on it, I start to feel like panicking. So I just don’t focus on it. This means that my house is often in a state of disrepair – looking as though a tornado blew through it, or as though we had just returned from vacation. These things are generally not true, although we are the parents of five children (the oldest born in 2005, the youngest born in 2012), which makes for quite a bit of mess. On one hand, I would like to get better at my “job” of keeper of the household, but just don’t know where to start. On the other hand, I would like to stay just as I am – using my free time as I want to, not to do dishes or sort laundry.
On that note, I’ll say that my husband actually said that he thrives in a sty. Yes, those were his words. So maybe cleaning up the house wouldn’t actually be the best idea? Maybe. But lately it’s started to get sort of ridiculous.
