The REAL Housewives

I am an ardent viewer of "The Real Housewives of Orange County,  New York and New Jersey". I watch because I find all the Housewives so relatable (that was a joke). Actually, I think they are all full of baloney yet I continue to watch--to roll my eyes and revel in their drama. I admit that I need to take a personal moral inventory of myself.

These are the things I know to be true about this real Housewife:

She ( and her daughter) washes her own windows
She hangs (and her daughter) her own Christmas lights (a 20 minute job that took 2 hours to complete)

She rearranges her own furniture

She loves a Cracker Barrel breakfast

She sets a very pretty and simple table for Christmas (vinyl tablecloth included)

She decorates a scrawny Christmas tree that would make Charlie Brown blush with pride

She prefers donut-tower birthday cakes

She makes lovely craft items to sell (pendant necklaces made from scrabble letter tiles and glass tiles)

She peddles her goods at local craft shows (okay, one craft show, her first craft show--she plans to do more)

She adores and values her husband

She is a dedicated mother who loves her family fiercely

She is a real housewife of Summitville, Indiana (a suburb of Fowlerton)

Loved this post! And Fowlerton should be honored to have such a distinguished suburb as Summitville!
I'm also a real housewife but one desperately in need of "people". I want people. LOL
