Hello again, everybody. I was just wondering if there is anyone who has been a SAHM or housewife for a long time (or even a short time i guess) that might chat with me. I'm the baby of the bunch here, because i'm only 18 and have been married 2 years. I am super traditional (cooking, cleaning, ironing, etc.) which mostly comes from wanting to be the exact opposite of my family growing up (my mother was a bum, and my dad did everything), but it's started getting me down a little. I am literally becoming obsessed with perfection. I know that nobody can be martha stewart (besides martha stewart, of course), but for some reason I just can't give it up.

I thought of an example: my husband works odd hours, and because we dont have my stepson full time I sleep when he's at work, and get up when he gets home so that i can cook him dinner (dinner at 2am sometimes) and spend time with him then. That means that i dont get up until well after noon most days, and that's when i start my day. It never used to bother me, because i know that i do it for a reason, but now it's driving me nuts. something just keeps echoing in my head "that's not normal nicole! you should be waking up at 5am and going to be at 10 like a normal housewife" i'm telling you, it's like i watched to many "leave it to beaver" re-runs or something.
