Just A Housewife

(note from author: read to the end!)

I could be a pediatrician
Caring for children’s aches and diseases.
But, I can’t because I’m just a housewife.

I could be a secretary
Keeping files and other paperwork in order.
But, I can’t because I’m just a housewife.

I could be a laundress
Making sure people’s clothing is kept clean.
But, I can’t because I’m just a housewife.

I could be a dietician
Preparing meals both pleasing and nutritious.
But, I can’t because I’m just a housewife.

I could be a taxi driver
Taking important people to important places.
But, I can’t because I’m just a housewife.

I could have a fabulous career
Earning enough money to make me wealthy.
But, I can’t because I’m just a housewife.

But, I do have a fabulous career
That gives me wealth beyond measure
Just because I am a housewife!

Coupons

A few months ago, I signed up for coupons to be able to print only the ones I want at home. I had trouble getting it to work. I don't know if it was my old computer or what, but this morning I tried it again and it worked like a charm!
I receive email notices showing me which ones are available. Most of them I am not interested in, but now and then there are some I can use. Hope this is helpful.
Here is the site, if you are interested. Actually, it is the site, whether you are interested or not. :)

Where have all the needles gone?

During years of sewing I constantly lost needles. Does that sound familiar? I decided to make a new pin cushion. Since my old tomato pin cushion was looking ratty, I decided to use the stuffing for my new one. When I started pouring the contents from one to the other, needles kept coming out also. I ended up with more than fifty needles of all shapes and sizes! Save a trip to the store. Make a new pin cushion instead!
