Forced Joy While Doing Housework?

Forced Joy While Doing Housework? September 26, 2018

Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife is sharing an email she supposedly received from a reader. The lady surely did not doing much by the Gospel According to Lori, she got educated, took on educational debt, worked…. and then had a baby and decided to stay home. All of which are clearly her perogative. Go wild, do what you feel is right. But then she discovers the way to beat post partum depression and the housework doldrums is to feel that ordered forced joy while doing housework?

We’ve covered this before. Housework must be done, but why elevate it to the most sacred ot things? Recently I wrote about my distaste for the housewife mommy bloggers who promote this view for profit and to puff themselves up. Why all the pretense? Why is it that these women feel the need to promote their own personal views on the rest of us willy-nilly? Is this an outgrowth of the everyone gets a trophy mode of navigating life?
