The Good Wife. Can I Have One for Christmas?

What do I really, REALLY want for the holiday? If I can't afford a personal assistant like the celebs have, what else is there?

The holiday season is upon us: December is in sight.  At this early stage, requests to find out “What do you want for Christmas?” are a pain. People want an answer NOW and gifts for me aren’t on my mind yet.

That said, I can honestly say that if Christmas is a time of magic, I know what I want.

I want a wife.

I’ll bet you thought a NotMom might use a magical wish to get a child. Some might. At this point, I want a wife.

Depending on the household:

--A wife keeps things tidy (a “clean” house is a relative term), organized and eating enough food to stay alive, if not totally healthy.  

--A wife pays the bills, schedules events, stocks the medicine cabinet and oversees the purchase of groceries, gifts and maintenance services.  

--A wife may get you going in the spiritual practice or regular exercise you said you wanted but never took action on.  

--A wife gives hugs when you need them.

A good wife is the best personal assistant ever, and I want one.
