The good part that comes from my additional duties is that it is obvious that I need to help my wife around the house more. As a part of taking care of my family, I put my career at the top of my priorities. Although my work will be a high priority I have seen that I need to focus on more balance between my career and my family.
The bad part is that there are going to be changes around the house. I am a firm believer that we have children to spoil them, but it is our responsibility as parents to teach our children responsibility and accountability. Both my boys try hard in school but can do a better job of picking up after themselves around the house. The only other bad part is that our home is going to have to be more organized because the way it is now is killing me. You have heard the saying that opposites attract, that is my wife and I. I am very deliberate and organized and my wife works under chaotic organization. She knows where everything is but no-one else can find anything.
Since my wife’s surgery I have been fixing her enough food over the weekend for her to warm up lunch for her and the boys while I am working. I purchased Rubbermaid’s Food Storage Containers to portion her food for the week. These Food Storage Containers keep the food fresh and they appear to be spill proof.
The lids on the Rubbermaid Food Storage Container have a rubber seal around the top and the lids latch down around all four sides. I do not have to fight getting the tops to seal as I have had problems with on many of the Tupperware Food Storage Containers I have used in the past. I have been washing the Rubbermaid Food Storage Containers in the dish washer and the heat during the drying cycle has not disturbed the seal. The Rubbermaid Food Storage Containers come out of the dishwasher as good as new.
Life can be crazy and chaotic, especially when something in life changes your daily routine that you have become accustom to. This may sound crazy but the Rubbermaid Food Storage Containers have made my week just a little easier by helping me organize my weekly food preparation during the busy work week.
