I have a friend, Ashlei, who has, for years, accused me of being domestic. She, and my husband, who both have this wild idea that I am domestic, inspired the name of my blog. I have found myself to be forever in denial of how others see me.
Ahslei enjoys teasing me, as she shares with colleagues and fellow writers, that I keep a rotating menu with coordinated shopping lists that are laid out in the same way as the groceries are shelved in the market. You do this. Right? I don’t consider this particularly domestic as much as essential to saneness. If I don’t do this, we eat out. Too much. And, this is how I get into this current state. And, this how my kitchen binder gets into this condition:
And, this is why I am doing this. I currently keep a seven week rotation of menus and shopping lists with make ahead plans to make dinners during the week easier. This makes perfect sense to me. This is part domestic and part, well, obsessive behavior.
