Why am I not Domestic?

I think there is something missing in my Mommy software. Lately, a large portion of my mommy friends have been sharing about how their gardens are growing, how they are canning vegetable, making jam, knitting, crafting with their children, blah blah blah. I don’t have anything against you gals, but I have none of these capabilities!
I have been trying to grow flowers. In my defense, this summer has stunk for this endeavor. Luckily, I did not put a lot of money into this failed hobby, or I would be pretty mad. My vision for gardening this year was to add another fruit bush and turn the rest of it into a sandbox for the kiddos. Unfortunately, that did not go over well with the Hubby (who is not around to take care of the garden I might add). Yeah, the garden looks like a tiny jungle. Luckily, it is mostly hidden so I don’t have to look at it.
Crafting. All my friends seem to be able to do this one. Nope. Not me. I can think of cool designs. I can design websites. I can do interior decorating. I can come up with party ideas. I cannot scrapbook. I cannot knit or sew. I tried learning. It was bad. I get craft kits for our art projects because I really stink at it. On the upside, I can sing. I can do that rather well. I can also draw.
I like a clean house, and for the most part, I have a clean house. I hate laundry and dishes. I really wish that there was a little cleaning fairy that did those for me. That would be terrific.
Sometimes, it bugs me though that I lack some of these capabilities. I am great at playing with Bendaroos, Legos, and blocks, but I wish I was a little more crafty or had a green thumb instead of brown. Oh well. At least I can sing. That counts for something. I think. Maybe I should do that more often. Or not.

    I will always be here to make you feel better about this… b/c whatever capabilities you have in this arena i have fewer 🙂
