So who remembers Home EC aka Home Economics Class?
I hope the answer is Yes because it is a lost gem that taught me so much looking back on it.
I think I should reword my question...
Were you one of those last kids who had to take Home EC way back when?
I was one of those last kids who had to take Home EC class in Middle School. The past few months I've been finishing up becoming legally Mrs. Chalfin, cleaning house, and basically trying to get my shit together. I've made some choices and done a few things which made me think of that class years ago...and I'm grateful for the wisdom it bestowed. I subconsciously am still doing a lot of the lessons my teacher tried to pass down all those many years ago.
I still swear I'm not turning into a Stepford Wife...I swear it...just a nightly housewife w/ a 8:30-5pm job struggling like everyone else.
Eventually in my life I'm pretty sure I would have gotten the hang of well life and figured out what a checkbook was...I do have wonderful parents who loved to teach me new things...but the little push into the adult world was definitely something I'm happy I got to experience!!
So what the fuck am I talking about if you didn't have Home EC?
