And yes, maybe "housewife" is stereotypical or derogatory to some-- but I see nothing wrong with the term. I thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of accomplishing things for my husband and I to savor for months to come. It's an empowering feeling to know that I am providing some comfort for my husband-- and I am nothing but proud of the hard work!
Are there any activities you enjoy doing that are possibly categorized as "housewife"? (For instance, I really enjoy folding laundry. Don't ask me why!) Do you take offense at the term? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
