I am following a lot of moms online. Bloggers. Vloggers. A lot. Near my age, or slightly further. And with each post I read, I realize how different we are from each other. And how different I am. So I decided to write about this. In a way, it will make you know me better.
You know how all the moms work out, wake up way earlier than the rest of the house, cook and do the laundry, and clean the house, and that’s all they do. Come night they go to bed early and go on date nights with their husbands and family events/friends stuff on a regular basis.
Well, that’s not my cup of tea.
Of course, I do the laundry and the cleaning, just not daily. I cook daily, that’s enough.
But our favorite relaxing evening is playing WoW. Yes, we play games, my husband and I. Casual gamers. We also watch tv-series and movies, but this happens mostly when we eat.
I do try to work out, but I tend to be extra zealous and after a week or two, I end up with God knows what pain and can’t move for a while. I try to take it slow now.
I also work in the evenings.
We also find it our responsibility to take care of our child so, because we have the possibility to work from home, we didn’t leave D with his grandparents until recently (he’s 2 years old). We only left him twice, for about 3-4 hours, and that only in the last 3 months.
You know all those “parties” where everyone sits at the table, eats, maybe some music in the background, small talking groups form, and maybe at some point, men and women separate to talk about gender specific stuff. Myea, those.
Not my cup of tea.
We participate in some of those family meetings around the year, and it’s more than enough.
I would very much prefer a WoW party or a gaming party or I don’t know, just something else. Something fun.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not judging all the people who like all those things. They are free to like and enjoy their own things.
I am just telling you it’s just not my cup of tea.
People are different and it’s amazing that we are, and we manage to get along.
It would be great if people would just accept all these differences in us.
