The Joys of Unemployment

Over the past few weeks, Steve has been trying to find a job. However, I am reaping the benefits of jobless Beaver.

-I can text him last minute when I need help at work, and he can come running to my aid. He's gotten hours of work done for me so I don't have to stay late at school.
-He brought me a diet coke at school today, ate lunch with me, and then played kickball with my students for recess.
-He can get dinner started in the crockpot so that when I come home for work the apartment is smelling delicious.
-He vacuumed the whole apartment AND cleaned my bathtub on Saturday.
-He packs my lunches.
-He pretty much makes dinner every night.

I can't decide which is better, a stay-at-home husband or a husband with a job.

Love you Beaver, just wanted to brag about you<3

Disclaimer: Steve has a part-time tutoring job and is looking for something more full time at the moment.


  1. i had a stay at home husband for a while, too! and he was tutoring part time. that's funny. he would bring me lunch at work and get everything done during the day. it was the best couple months as far as productivity in the home.

  2. I so hear you. When Adam was studying for the boards he would distract himself by cleaning the apartment and cooking. Needless to say I was really really sad when he started work. And I also feel like I got kind of a rotten deal: a husband who works 70 hour weeks and has to PAY for it?! That's not right.
