Tired, but yet so much still to do tonight, housework, fold clothes, do dishes, sweep kitchen and clean the bathroom!!
Then when my son gets back with my car, I have to drive him back to his house!!
Sound domestic?
Well, by that I am referring to a post I made today in my team forum, Cutting down the booze.
Yesterday I was invited to go out with my friend, I knew she wanted to go drinking. I told her no I had other things to do.
So, today, she asked me what I "got into". I told her I went and picked up my son, and bought my neice some baby clothes and then came home and cleaned my house and stayed home and watched the Walking Dead.
She said, that "sounds domestic, lol"
Well, was that supposed to be a bad thing?
Being domestic????
Trying to help out my niece by buying her some baby clothes, helping out my son by giving him a ride while his car is torn up?
Cleaning, staying home, not drinking????
I feel really sorry for her more and more as I listen, with sober ears and see her with sober eyes.
She probably sees me as her last link to that past life, or at least one of them and that life was 18 years ago.
The fun people, the fun places, and the fun times, are way behind me.
Most of the friends we had back there are old, or dead or at home, being domestic.
I can remember being in my 20s and saying, I sure hope I am not in this bar drinking when I am in my 40s.
Once in a while to go sit and have ONE beer, to ride around the town, to chat with a few old timers who wander in.
But for me, its so much a part of my past.
I dont even mind being domestic these days.
I am shopping, for me, bought myself some new clothes, some items for the new place, upcoming move.
And some Christmas items to put back.
Trying to clean a little tonight and watch the Voice.
Hoping the weather is warmer the next few days so I can get a few good long walks in.

I might be a little domesticated, but I am still not tame!!! emoticon

    Nothing wrong with being domestic :) And I love The Walking Dead!

    Being domestic doesn't mean you are not exciting. It only means you have less in common with those people who desire different priorities. Your friend hasn't gotten to the point where life is exciting enough to see it fully sober.

    This may sound silly but I love folding the laundry. I fold my little men's shirts. I take a nanosecond to think how much I love and appreciate them. Same for the hubby and me. Yes, I actually think of the ways I love me. (not the touch myself self love)

    Isn't it nice to have a clear head so you can be "domestic"? Being domestic makes me calm, I get things done and it reduces stress, better than any booze!

    Being domestic is not so bad, I am the domestic type and I find that it keeps me grounded.

    I'm home watching The Voice right now, too. My favorites this year (so far) are Tessanne Chin and Preston Pohl, but there's a lot of incredible talent. Do you have a favorite? emoticon

    (also very happy being domestic today!)
