Publisher's Summary

In The Beer's Folded and the Laundry's Cold: Mostly True Adventures in Housewifery, Paige Kellerman follows up her hilarious debut - At Least My Belly Hides My Cankles - with the natural next step-taking on budgeting, babies, and trying to keep the day drinking down to a minimum while staying at home.
At the core, it's a story of a woman who worked in an office and didn't, instead working on trying to make money stretch like a two dollar pair of panty hose, upping her fashion game to include occasionally wearing pants, and using dull childproof scissors to cut out coupons and wads of gum from her kid's hair.
Listeners will learn how to:


Cry about student loans
Accept the futility of cleaning while children are awake
Make their spouse feel awkward, using only conversation
Dance in the grocery store

This hilarious follow-up is not a "how-to" on being the perfect parent, but rather a tale of one woman running the house like a boss-that is, when she's not scraping failed Pinterest-inspired experiments out of the crockpot, filling the bird feeder and waiting for rogue squirrels, or inhaling the smell of a laundry sheet like a Snuggle-scented sedative. Housewifery just met its match.

I can see my wife in almost every page

Married for 15 years now and OMG can I see my wife in almost every page. From the internet friends, knowing a guy who knows a guy, the struggles of being a stay at home mom, a professional, a mom, a wife, etc. the author really grasps and conveys the feelings of housewifery. Loved the 7 Mondays. Get it. Listen to it. Laugh like crazy. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Amusing Listen!

I so enjoyed this tongue in cheek listen. I found the musing of the main character to be realistic in the aspect that its hard to remember what day it is when being a stay at home mom. The author was new to me, while I've listened to the narrator previously. I think the author did a great job with the humor in this book. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I requested a review copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.
