“So much work ahead!”, muttered Reema as she made several trips to the house carrying armful of groceries from the SUV every time. Five years back Reema, her husband, and her two adorable children lived in a rented two bedroom apartment. That year they sold their car and bought a new SUV. Soon, carpooling for children’s soccer and swimming classes brought new friends. Weekend get-togethers started. When their apartment became too small to accommodate all their guests, they bought a single family home. Parties increased, expenses increased and vacations decreased. Reema became busy with shopping groceries, hosting parties, and maintaining the huge house. Though she enjoyed spending time with friends, she craved for some free time which she rarely got these days. “Life was much simpler back then”, she sighed as she recollected her blissful afternoons relaxing on the couch a few years ago.
