THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE DAY:
What does the Retro housewife day look like? Well, we get up, get our
kids off to school, pack our hubbies a sandwich and wish them a safe
drive. Then our day is OPEN? Some of us watch Oprah or the Soaps, some
have a regular routine, for housewives with children our lives revolve
around them and their activities, some paint do charity work...or maybe
we run a home based business.
Some Retros have money, and for them running the house is comparable to
running a small company, managing the staff, scheduling the projects,
projecting an image of perfection to the outside world.
The best Retros understand that their purpose is to make life worth
living for themselves and their families. That, no matter their income
level or social status, they are the center of their families universe
and the one who has the difficult task of making the most out of
whatever resources are available to them.
In keeping a house, the job is to make it a home. In raising children,
it is to turn out well balanced emotionally stable human beings that
have the confidence and personal convictions they will need to make
their way productively and happily in life. In being a wife, our job is
one of support, confidante, companion, lover and best friend.
No small order, but in the end, we are the ones that make the difference
in the lives of the other members of our families. Whoever coined the
term "little woman" had not the slightest idea of what he spoke, for it
is truly "the hand that rocks the cradle" that is an accurate depiction
of our role.
We get many emails from housewives who identify with our general
opinions on things, and stories about their lives and daily activities.
In this section, we are highlighting the things we found in common
amongst the hundreds of letters we get.
