Do you ever feel like you spend your entire day either cleaning up one mess or making another one?  Wow, life gets messy!

About The Blog
Because domessticated.com has its roots as a food blog (some of you may remember I started out as Ucreate Foods?), I'll continue to make the kitchen the focus of my features.  But I personally enjoy making other messes, as well.  So I'll occasionally be sharing some of those with you, too.  And since domessticated.com has always been primarily a feature blog, I'm hoping you'll share some of your messes with me at domessticated@hotmail.com.  I can't wait to see and share them! 

About Me
I was supposed to be a career woman.  I studied and worked my entire life, totally driven & focused, to obtain a degree that would help me be successful in a career I knew would be fulfilling for me.  Be a housewife?  Have kids?  No, thanks.  I had more important fish to fry.  Then, just three months into the the successful career I'd spent my entire life making one sacrifice after another to obtain, my husband and I found out that we were expecting.  Twins. 

Fast forward four years later.  I spend my days doing laundry, washing dishes, transporting piles of toys from there to here, wiping various body parts, carting kids to and from activities, refereeing temper tantrums, reading books with forty pages or less...and yes, occasionally giving myself a crafty time-out. 

I thought I'd go back to work after the babies were born.  Then I figured I'd go back after they were weaned.  Perhaps after they were mobile day care would make sense?  I actually briefly went back to work last year and thought I might suffocate being away from them.  One day I do hope to be able to go back to work.  Maybe after the kids are in school.  But for right now, despite the messes, there's no place I'd rather be.  Yeah.  I've become "domesticated".  And I'm so okay with that.  In fact, I wouldn't have it any other way.  I realize now that this is the career I was meant to have.  This is what's fulfilling for me.  This is what I want for my life.  And theirs.
