A Real Wife Clone

I did this weird thing a couple weeks ago…tell me if you’ve heard of it.

It’s called: “Cleaned the house.”  It was crazy.  I did it, by myself, unprovoked…it took me hours….and when I was done I had this weird sensation come over me.  Pride perhaps?  Satisfaction maybe?  ::shrug::  I dunno but It was the wildest thing.  I plead temporary insanity because I then called and cancelled our cleaning service.  Not sure how wise a move that was….but she only came every 3rd week anyway…I can handle it without her….right? *crickets*

But then last week…I did it again.  I wonder what’ll happen this week? next week?  How long will this mania last?  I’m sure John thinks that I’ve been switched out with a “real” wife clone that looks just like his old one, but acts all crazy doing wifely things like cleaning and cooking.

Oh yeah…the cooking.  I’ve been doing that a little too.  And that’s John’s job!  I’ve always been a weekend cook.  No, that’s a lie.  I’m a sometimes on the weekends when I bloody well feel like it cook.  But I’ve been on a cooking kick these days…and I’m always on the recipe websites and blogs collecting ideas when I should be working…I think I need some cookbooks. (Ideas anyone?)

i googled brie van de kamp pics and got this! ha!

I am on again off again with my relationship with the kitchen.  While I’m on again I figure I should capitalize and learn some new recipes to have in my holster.  John blew me away with a thought, he said “when we have kids you’re going to have to cook every night” and although I wanted to beat him up for throwing that at me, I realized it’s true. Dammit it’s true!  He’ll be at school or the hospital for the next…. I dunno…. 9 freaking years…and Baby H and Baby H 2 (yes I’m already planning for both of them) can’t starve, can they?  They’re gunna be bringing their hungry butts to me for help.  *GULP* Jeez.  Maybe I can be like that crazy Brit lady and breastfeed them ’til they’re 13 or something so I won’t have to cook. kidding!…sorta.

Now I’m kinda hoping my “real” wife mania lasts forever.  I don’t think I’ll ever be a domestic diva, but at least my children wont starve or be lost under piles of rubble in our home!  YAY!!

Are you a domestic diva? Or a faux domestic like I’m turning into? Do you have any good cookbooks to recommend? Any organizing or housekeeping tips for me?

[...] I had a dose of temporary insanity in the past, I generally am not a fan of cleaning.  As for cooking, I do it rarely, and only [...]

Oh Quiana beat me to it. I love the Test Kitchen and always buy their magazines. I also have the Joy of Cooking and Webber's BBQ book (I don't remember the official name). Between the 3 of them, I have enough old standbys to get me through most weeks. Then I try (not always) to do a big meal on the weekend to last to Tues. Here's my favorite trick: Weds are "eat what you want" night. The kids always want cereal, so they're happy to eat and I'm happy not to cook!

Good for you! I highly recommend Cooks Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen on PBS and online. Their cookbooks are great too. This one I use the most:

I'm a wanna be domestic diva. I used to be so much better before we had our son. Now, I'm ready to call a cleaning service and a cook! Mama is tired!

I love to cook and clean! I must admit that I do not cook every night. I run out of things to cook sometimes. I usually clean once a week. Cleaning any more than that is wasteful because the kids love to be messy. I remember I went kind of crazy before I knew I was pregnant. I had meals cooked ahead of time for the week and was cleaning everyday!
