Erik and I both work and work hard! Both of our jobs require extensive traveling. So we are constantly on the GO! If our house is clean and organized it is because it has been a week since we have been home. For the most part, my monkey destroys the house. His favorite activity is standing at the top of the staircase in front of the safety gate and chucking all of his toys over the gate and down the stairs. Crap everywhere.
Yes, I will admit, our jobs are pretty darn cool. But they can still be very stressful like every other profession. When people hear that Erik models they tend to be envious but let me tell you there is a whole lot more to modeling then standing there and looking pretty. Erik constantly watches what he eats. We go out to dinner and I always order a steak and pototo. Erik orders salad and chicken. The food runner always gives me Erik's meal first... yes my husband has to eat like a woman! Not to mention he is on a strict work out regimen. He has to deal with rejection on an every day basis. Can you imagine going to castings where you are up against 20 other highly attractive people? And when you don't get booked they don't give you an explanation. You just have to wonder, "Why didn't they pick me?" I couldn't do it. When Erik lived in NYC and modeled full-time with FORD I would get pissed. In my mind, he should get every job. And when he didn't I would wonder why. He was used to it but it bugged me every time. Not to mention he has a "real job" too and he is taking a full load of classes. His life is insane...far from "perfect."
We all know the saying, "The grass is always greener on the other side." I am convinced it is true. We all struggle in our own lives. Some people are just better at hiding it than others.
