Suburban Housewife Edition

My vibrating Timex watch woke me up at my common 6 am time. To walk my child to the transport, and strive for a run, I slipped on my Champion running jeans, a Nike long sleeve shirt bought at TJ Max in 2013 and a couple of running shoes from Shoe Carnival. After a fast shower, I slipped on my mother goes to work low maintenance uniform. some olive green Gap Bermuda shorts, a crimped long sleeve catch down, a weaved Lucky sash and Havaianas flip lemon. With my dark bonded leather Forever 21 satchel over my shoulder, the unified with the zipper that doesn't work, I went to my day occupation: accounting. Later that night, back home after a taxing day of accommodating records, doing child escort obligation and cooking a Mexican chowder.

90 Pound Suburban Housewife

90 Pound Suburban Housewife (Driving in Her SUV) was the song that became the anthem of fossil fuel conscious environmentalists in 2006. Written by Rozanne Gates and Suzanne Sheridan of Westport, Connecticut, 90 Pound Suburban Housewife offered social comment on the trend of American housewives driving large SUVs in the midst of environmental concerns and raising oil prices.

Interest in the song was spurred when it was played on the National Public Radio show Car Talk in January 2006. The song garnered attention from local press and national media such as The Today Show, CNN, Associated Press coverage and radio play on stations throughout the United States.

Gates, an actor's agent for 25 years, was the advocate of acting notables such as Edward Norton, Bronson Pinchot, Christopher Noth, and Joe Mantegna. Gates' community involvement includes executive positions at the Lynne Thigpen - Bobo Lewis Foundation, dedicated to helping young actors in the memory of actors Lynne Thigpen and Bobo Lewis and First Night Westport-Weston.

Housewife is a term used to describe a married woman whose main occupation is running or operating the family's home—caring for and educating her children, cooking and storing food, buying goods the family needs in day to day life, cleaning or maintaining parts of the home, making clothes for the family, etc.—and who does not generally maintain employment outside the home. Merriam Webster describes a housewife as a married woman who is in charge of her household. Homemaker is a mainly American gender-neutral term for a housewife or also a stay-at-home dad.

The term may sometimes be used in a derogatory sense, as part of a contrast with a career woman.
The term has also been used since the 18th century to refer to a small sewing kit, and is still used to describe a personal sewing kit used by soldiers and others, usually written and pronounced "hussif" in Britain.
SAHM is an abbreviation that refers to a "stay at home mom".

Hermit Thrush

Their breeding habitat is coniferous or mixed woods across Canada, Alaska, and the northeastern and western United States. They make a cup nest on the ground or relatively low in a tree. Hermit Thrushes migrate to wintering grounds in the southern United States and south to Central America but some remain in northern coastal US states and southern Ontario.

Although they usually only breed in forests, Hermit Thrushes will sometimes winter in parks and wooded suburban neighbourhoods. They are very rare vagrants to western Europe. It has also occurred as a vagrant in northeast Asia.

They forage on the forest floor, also in trees or shrubs, mainly eating insects and berries.
