Hi my name is Megan I am a wife and mother with a serious dislike for laundry and love for Disney. My title comes from a conversation I had with my husband about housework one day as I vented about the things that had to get done, cleaning the kids room, folding laundry and washing the dishes (yes I mean really washing I do not own a dishwasher) he looked at me and said “You are a reluctant housewife, great mother but reluctant housewife”. This sums me up perfectly! I would love to do nothing but take care of my girls all day but alas that is not an option.
My daughters are 3 and 5, they are a handful. My oldest daughter was born with a Critical Congenital Heart Defect, Truncus Arteriosus. This is how I came into the housewife role, after she was born there really was not an option to go back to work as she had (and still has) a weakened immune system. My younger daughter is the perfect princess and girly girl example: when she turned 3 she had no desire to use the potty (even though she was very ready) so one day she approached me asking if she could do ballet I told her she could do ballet but only if she was potty trained. To my surprise once she heard that she was trained; she had no accidents!
I am also a recovering Christian, now let me clarify by recovering I am recovering from some bad religion but not God. I was “saved” when I was 18 years old and since then my life has not been the same. I left my parents house at 19 and was married, at this time my husband and I did not attend church and must say it was the best time of our spiritual walk, as time and the years went on we started attending church. Now we didn’t just go to the random church down the street first we started with Oneness Pentecostal, then we realized they were wayyy off on their teaching so we switched over to the main stream Pentecostal. After about 5 months we realized that Arminianism was not right so we then started attending at Calvinist church. I became immersed into this theology but it was short lived after 8 months at the Calvinist church we crashed and burned. It has been 4 years since we left and now I am picking up the pieces of my faith and trying to put them back together.
Thanks for reading please feel free to reach out to me I would love to hear from you!
Okay I did not feel right deleting this whole about me section even though the majority of what it say is no longer true! So in December 2014 while I was in Disney (yes my favorite place in the world) I got a call from my husband that he was leaving me and wanted a divorce. To say I was shocked is a major understatement I was devastated! So now this blog is focusing on my healing and growing as a single mom and loving this new life that I have been thrust into!
Oh yeah as for Christianity, I guess I am more on the line of walking away rather than healing.
I hope you enjoy!
