I have been struggling lately as a SAHM, Housewife, Peace Keeper and Household Manager. I think we all go through this and if you don't please share your secrets...even if you do...share your secrets also.
I have learned some things from Joanne and Toben from their blog "Our Crazy Marriage" even though we don't struggle with illness like Toben has. I have learned that I need to make my home a Peaceful Haven for my family. What does Peaceful mean for my household in particular...laundry done and put up, ironing done, meals cooked, house clean, dog fed and watered, kids not arguing with each other and other things I can't think of right now.
How am I doing at making my home PEACEFUL?
NOT GOOD...Not Good at ALL. I've been off work for a year on the 1st and I haven't accomplished hardly anything that I want too. The house is a wreck, laundry needs to be done, did I say the house is a wreck, I'm overspending, the kids are always bickering, projects are not done. I put off the things that take a long time or aren't fun for me and that's not fair. DH works hard and he can't let things fall behind or there goes our income....so why should my job be any different.
So what am I going to do about it?
Not Sure! I'm hoping I can get on more of a cleaning schedule and workout schedule, get down to no more than 2 Walmart trips therefore helping to curtail the spending, help the kids no what healthy disagreements are like and do better with the discipline. Any suggests from you all would be helpful.
