Well, I've got the kids off to school. I always say, "Well, now I need to get to work". I say this everyday when I get home from taking the kids to school and you know what I do? I almost always get on here. That's not working!!
In case you haven't figured it out yet, I HATE housework. When asked if I work or if I'm a housewife, DH always replies, "No, she's stay at home mom." It's completely different from being a housewife. I wish I was a better one. I wish my house always shined and glistened but... instead there is usually a lot dust and clutter. This is always a goal of mine. To get myself together and get busy with my housework. I need a schedule.
I get a newsletter about once a month called, "Tea With Dee". This last one she was talking about this very subject. She said she read somewhere that we should think of housework as a way of loving our family not as work. I'm trying to think this way but I guess I'm just lazy. I try to think of it as bringing peace to my home and family and I do good for a day or two sometimes even a week but once the family is home for more than a couple of hours together... well, it's usually a disaster area! DD's bedroom is horrible right now and I think that's why I'm not getting started because I know that I need to go there right away and I need to straighten up the kitchen first. I can't seem to work anywhere until the kitchen is straight. I wish I could keep it under control then maybe the rest would get done but I wouldn't count on it.
I can't believe that I'm saying this on here. I sound terrible but... Okay, I guess I better go get busy loving my family!! ;)
