I Need a Wife!

Marcos' Sister Elizabeth arrived last week from Brazil, and our home has been revolutionized! Having the kitchen clean, a great friend to talk with, the baby entertained and happy as a button, the dishes washed, and our bed made (!) has been the most incredible gift, and I'm pretty sure that I need a wife. Marcos is great too and I wouldn't choose anyone else but him, but if your home is anything like mine, husbands tend to do helpful things when they are asked three times, and wives see a need and address it without you even noticing. I think women's brains are just made differently.


Amazing Elizabeth will be staying in North Carolina to explore and try out her life here, and as the weeks roll out, she will be finding an apartment and hopefully, a really great job. I know that sleeping in the tight space in Marcos' office between his desk and the couch probably isn't her idea of a happy long-term solution, but I wish we could keep her...

I can offer her a room of her own, 'cause it sounds like I could use a wife too! :)

I love Brazililian women. I just feel a little bad that Christian married a lazy one.

I watched a few episodes of that show, Big Love, because I was way too curious of how they would portray polygamist life.
That part of it, the women covering for each other and helping each other out, seemed nice.
The rest of it, not so nice. But I could totally do with having a 2nd mom around the house, along as she wasn't competing with wife status.
