“An ideal homemaker is devoted
to the great career in which she is engaged.
She is a professional in her field by being a homemaker
and letting her devotion and sense of duty,
rather than her moods, dominate her.”
—Daryl V. Hoole
Ms. Hoole goes on to state that there are 3 types of homemaker. #1. The “Don’t Cares“, #2. The “Almosters“, and #3. The “Ideal Homemakers“.
As I’ve previously noted, I am, of course, an “Almoster“. In fact, I’m the ideal example of an “Almoster“.
But my ship hasn’t sunk….according to Ms. Hoole: “There is a lot of hope for the Almosters…Most of them are putting forth the time and energy. All they need is some direction to their activities and they can be…ideal homemakers.”
So in the spirit of sense and duty I will now retire to the basement to straighten the playroom even though my mood is dictating a long message involving nachos and a date with the couch and my t.v.
