Hello Blog World,
It has absolutely been an extremely long time! I am so apologetic for being away so long. It appears that I have more readers than I know ~ since writing has always been cathartic for me and my hubbster bought me this awesome laptop, I plan on putting it to good use. I am sure that you are thinking, I’ve heard you say that before. Yes, but this time, I have my own computer device to complete this task.
Today I want to talk about being the “mommy manager.” My husband recently began working after a 3 year hiatus and now I have become the “mommy manager.” That is to say that I have the task of managing the household including all the chores (loading and unloading the dishwasher, trash, laundry, meal planning), chauffeuring the children (to and from school, school activities and church activities) and managing the children (activities, homework, hygiene, being a referee, health appointment) and let’s not forget the other duties as assigned. The purpose of this particular blog is to remind us as mothers not to forget about ourselves. Right now my husband is cooking while I am locked away in my room. That’s right I said locked. Why you may ask – because it is better for my sanity. I am the captain of this ship or rather The Queen of this Empire and I must be whole in order to maintain order. So don’t feel bad to kick back and relax a little – go ahead and pamper yourself a little: schedule that massage, waxing, pedicure or facial; paint your nails. We must all learn to take a little time to care for us. That’s the true secret to a happy household!
