Only dreaming

I often wonder what my day will be like if I were a stay-at-home-mom. It will be so nice to be alone at home while everyone's at work or in school. It's just a dream of course (for now) but thinking about it makes me happy.

For once, instead of always rushing and dashing about, I will do everything at a leisurely pace. I'll wake up anytime I please and start the day with a run or long walk. Then I'll head to the market to pick the freshest seafood and vegetables. Once I get home,  I will settle down with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and read the papers from cover to cover (instead of scanning the headlines like now).

I might potter around in the garden and retreat indoors when the heat gets too intense. After tidying up the house, I'll make myself a simple chicken salad and homemade lemonade for lunch. The rest of the afternoon will be spent doing the things I enjoy - reading, writing, baking or cooking.

There will be days when I meet friends for lunch, travel or make myself useful to society. All this sound so wonderful and idyllic. Will it ever happen? Quite unlikely.

Hmmm. That sounds like a TaiTai, not a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM). SAHM gotta do housework, mind the children and budget household expenses!
