Being a Domestic Diva is more worked than I ever imagined.  Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying myself although I feel like I'm working non stop 24 hours a day, but I'm finding it to be very satisfying and fulfilling in a strange way.  It's nice to know that I'm nourishing my family, I'm keeping a tidy home, and I'm still able to have a little me time in addition.  I'm slowly getting the hang of this balancing act, or at least it feels that way to me.

A few weeks back, hubby approached me about having a good friend stay with us for a few months because of a current issue with his living situation.  At first I was a little hesitant but all my worries vanished when hubby told me who he was speaking of.  This guy, we'll just call him G, has been a close friend of ours for almost 10 years now.  He's the kind of guy that will take the shirt off his back if you needed it.  How could I say no?  So last week we prepared ourselves to welcome G into our home for the next 3 months.  I wasn't exactly sure how things would work out, especially with our little monkey, but so far all has been good.

Well, "good" is somewhat an understatement!  Things have been pretty terrific, actually.  Ok, so hubby and I haven't really had much time alone, but that's just one more things we'll have to learn to balance.  Besides that, I really can't complain.  To be 100% honest, I'm getting spoiled rotten with G around!  Lately, things at work have been really busy between it being tax season and me talking on additional responsibilities that I've been dying for (anything to make my day more busy, I know, I must be out of my mind!), I've been coming home absolutely exhausted and ready for a break.  I haven't really wanted to think about cooking or cleaning or anything else besides my couch, a good book and maybe even a nice glass of wine.  And can you blame me?  Well, since G has moved in, that's pretty much exactly what I've been getting.  I come home and the house is spotless, dishes are washed and put away, kitchen is stocked (yes, he's went grocery shopping for me), and he's taken on his share of cooking a couple nights a week.

To make matters even better, hubby now has 2 nights a week off instead of just 1!  So he cooks (or we go out) 2 nights a week, G cooks 2 nights a week, and I cook 3 nights a week.  I could really get used to this!  I'm going to miss G when he leaves but I will enjoy this time while it lasts!
