SAHM vs Working From Home {Politically Correct @ Swim Class?!}

So, yesterday at swim class I was talking to another mother about how cute her little girl is and how adorable Kallen
{cause remember its an all dad and baby swim class :)}
Making great conversation, giggling and taking photos of our babies
she asked me a question I wasn't ready for:

"Do you work outside the home?"
Imagine me, deer headlight... thinking, racking my brain... what kind of job does she think I do inside the home, my husbands finances, Real Estate, on line specialist?
Totally confused...
my answer.. "Um, I work on weekends at a gallery"
the other mom "Oh, so your able to stay at home during the week?"
me "yep! A weekday SAHM"
the other mom "I just have friends who prefer to say they work at home raising children rather then say they are a stay at home mom."

Which lead me to think a lot last night about jobs...

{this is MY blog and MY opinion, so don't get too pissy with me if you don't agree!}

I'm lucky enough to be able to stay at home with my little guy during the week and get away with working 3 weekends a month.. But I DON'T think its my JOB to stay at home!
Its my choice!
When I'm at home {or just with my little guy in general} I LOVE it!
and in NO way shape or form would I CHOOSE anything else :)
A job pays bills and puts food on the table...

So moms em I WAY off on this one?
are you a Stay at Home Mom or do you work from home?

Adult Truths....

I think these are GREAT! I have darkened the ones I LOVE! 1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. 2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. 3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. 4. There is great need for a sarcasm font. 5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? 6. Was learning cursive really necessary? 7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood. 8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died. 9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired. 10. Bad decisions make good stories. 11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day. 12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again. 13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to. 14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call. 15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well. 16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay. 17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option. 18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger. 19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said? 20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters! 21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever. 22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is. 23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time. 24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Controversial Billboards...

yummy frosty BEER!!

Have you had a shellac manicure?

I have heard a lot of my friends talk about a

Shellac Manicure.. even my MOM!

They claim to last 14 days!!

I can only keep a Manicure for about 72

Friends say they last anywhere from 10 days to a MONTH!!

My nails are SO soft they seem to start to chip

as soon as the pain is dry... :(

So yesterday, I also jumped on the band waggon!
