Striving to be the best 1950's housewife that I can be is definitely not for girls, you have to be a woman to make sure your house is up to 50's standards.
My schedule so far this morning has been:
5:45- Woke Up
6:00-7:00- Made and ate breakfast, Washed breakfast dishes, Took out the garbage
7:00-9:00- Fed animals, Scooped kitty litter, thoroughly cleaned 2 out of 3 bathrooms (including scrubbing toilets, sinks and showers) Vacuumed upstairs and "broomed" staircase to ensure that all pet hair was removed (yes, I was on my hands and knees with sweat beading upon my brow, using a rubber brush combing through the carpet), Started laundry, Stripped bed to wash sheets and pillowcases.
9:00- 11:00- Continue laundry, Dusting, Clean dog area outside, Sweep and Mop all tile flooring (kitchen, bathrooms, dinning room, entry, garage entry and fireplace, vacuum downstairs.
.... My morning has pretty much looked like this over the past few weeks since I decided I was going to take on a more 1950's housewife routine. I must say, It's nice being busy and always knowing that everyday you're house is going to be ready for any unexpected company, solicitors or surprises.
As soon as I wake up I put on my FitBit. I believe every woman should have one of these. It's not 1950's for sure but it's so inconspicuous that no one will know that! Since I have a two story house I probably burn more calories running up and down the stairs but on an average day, just going around the house doing 1950's good ol' housewife duties I'm burning about 2000-2300 calories and that's no including that I try to squeeze in 15-30 minutes a day of moderate exercise. I'm also climbing about 12-16 flights of stairs a day because of the fact that I go up and down my stairs so much. With these numbers, I don't know any woman that would want an office job!
Time to continues onto my duties. I hear the dryer chiming which means it's time to start some ironing!
