"1950's Housewife

1.Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal (especially his favorite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.

2.Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.

3.a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.

4.Clear away clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives.

5.Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper, etc and then run a dustcloth over the tables.

6.Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will give you immense personal satisfaction.

7.Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and if neccesary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. Minimise all noise.

8.At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet.

9.Be happy to see him.

10.Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.

11.Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first-remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours.

12.Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late, or goes out to dinner, or other place of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.

13.Your goal: try to make your home a place of peace, order and tranquility where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.

14.Don't greet him with complaints and problems.

15.Don't complain if he's late home for dinner or even if he stays out all night.Consider this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day.

16.Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.

17.Arrange his pillows and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.

18.Don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgement or integrity. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always excerise his will with fairness and truthfulness. you have no right to question him.

19.A good wife always knows her place.

I'm not sure blogger has the bullets options but u can make everything less of a clutter by pressing the "enter" button on ur keyboard between elements in a list...the spacing gives a kind of clarity sort of...keep me posted on how it goes...

to comment abau ur blog post...i feel the 1950's housewife in a time like ours is too surreal to be possible...even village girls now are wising up and stuff...

This is a complete crap.I mean how can a man be complete master of house and women cannot have the right to question him?
I have been doing survey onCheating Spouse Catcher from 2 years and found that not only girls but also boys cheat on girls...

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, it looks more of a slave than a good wife to me.

I believe you can easily itemize if you paragraph before posting and look at your layout, setting and posting very well. If you practice with these, you will be a pro.
