My first day as a homemaker was fairly mellow. I actually accomplished nearly everything on my To-Do list for the day which I was pretty impressed with. I’m still finding a lot of difficulty with getting into a grove. My husband has bronchitis and attempted to go to work, however, had to admit defeat and come home. His goal should be trying not to move because moving = breathing and breathing too hard may = losing a lung. Either way, the bonus for me is that he is here and is the perfect excuse for a distraction to my transition.
The second day was a national Holiday. Independence Day! Which means everyone is home!
And I develop a nagging cough that is not going away. AWESOMENESS.
Sadly, my son was very disappointed that both of his parents were too sick to really want to do anything other than lie in a comatose state watching Netflix. Not to mention, mom is finally home and now she’s sick. Lame.
We did manage to go out on a little mini adventure, and start a game of monopoly that I’m pretty positive I’m going to lose this evening. (Hey, Go Big or Go Home).
We did get a little treat last night after deciding we would not be traveling anywhere for fireworks. Our neighbors apparently didn’t want to travel either and decided to put on their own light show. WOOT!
Speaking of which, this brings me to my latest topic. A friend on Facebook recommended that I start drinking Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (with the mother, which my first thought was honestly “what does my mother have to do with this?) with a dash of cayenne pepper.
It took me awhile to truly wrap my brain around what she was suggesting.
Then of course, I did some MAJOR Google stalking of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar as well as Cayenne Pepper.
As suggested by my friend, I put 2 tablespoons of Raw ACV (with the mother, which thanks to Google I know now what is) in 8 ounces of water and dashed some Cayenne pepper on top. Stirred it a bit and drank it.

I end this blog with the following funny:
At the end of Tuesday I was talking to my hubs about my fears and worries of being a homemaker. Here is our conversation:
Hubs: “Are you saying you want me to give you a job description?”
Hubs: “Would you like monthly performance appraisals as well?”
Me: “Does it make me a bad person if I say yes?”
Hubs: “No. Psychologically unstable and extremely concerning, yes. Bad person, no.”
