There are days I look forward to cleaning!

Ah, some me time! I'm not hanging out in my garden, sprucing up, checking out what's growing and planting more seeds which seems to have become my norm. I'm not taking a trip to the mall, which used to be my norm. Nope! I was cleaning up my house. Can you believe cleaning has become "me time"? I'm lovin' it!



My husband took the kids to a graduation…

Balance Work and Home to Avoid Excess

It is fantastic to balance obligations at home and work by avoiding concentrating on either area to excess. Excess is commonly defined as an amount that is more than necessary, permitted, or desirable. It is not ideal to live in excess. Balancing our obligations to home and to work is a balancing act. When I think of it I always think of a seesaw with the things I need to do for home on one side and the things I need to do for work on the other side. A reality is that many women work at home…

Do I Have What it Takes to Be a Stay at Home Mom?

For a multitude of reasons, my husband and I have decided it might be best if I become a stay-at-home mom.
And for a multitude of reasons, I am excited, nervous, and eager about the possibility of beginning this very new, very important chapter of my life.
I’m kind of panicking, to be honest. I mean, I want very badly to be THE BEST SAHM the world has ever known. Yes, I know it’s an impossibility, and that putting that kind of pressure on myself is ridiculous. But…

A SteamVac is a Great Investment if you Have Young Children or Pets

Kids are a parents pride and joy; however, they tend to be good at making messes around the house.  I remember when my oldest son was a baby, he was constantly getting into things that he wasn’t supposed to get into the moment you turned your back for a few seconds or he was off making messes in the house…

Being a Parent & Working from Home, Is there a balance?

Have you ever thought of the challenges one might face if they work from home and manage a busy household? For scheduling purposes they would usually  take the easy route and work when their kids and spouse are not at home. Easy peasy right?

What about holiday weeks, school breaks(summer, winter, spring), and sick days? How do you juggle being a great asset to your company or keep good merits…

A Good Attitude Makes Work and Home Problems Seem Better

Even though it is hard, it is fantastic to have work and home obligations.  Women who work have professional obligations that must be met on a regular basis. At the same time, any woman with a family has obligations to her family that must be met on a daily basis. For some people, attempting to balance these obligations is overwhelming.  For me, the solution to these competing obligations is getting dressed before I get out of bed.…

Love Home - It Makes Work Worth Doing

It is fantastic to have a good home life because it makes going to work worth doing. For many people the biggest joy they have in life is the ability to come home at the end of a long day and get hugs and kisses from family members. It makes all the stresses of the day seem worthwhile when you have a loving home to return to each day.

The movie The Wiz had a great song about home. One of my favorite lines from the song is, "When I think of home I think of a place where there…

Green on the Cheap

When I made the decision, really made the decision, to adopt a greener lifestyle, I had people say to me “I’d love to go green but I can’t afford it.”  Have you ever said that?  Thought that?  If so, I will refrain from telling you what I said in return.

The point is that if you think about it,…

Wimpy

I'm out of Cherry Coke. In fact, I'm out of any kind of pop besides my husband's Mountain Dew super blue beverage that I refuse to drink. Normally, being out of Cherry Coke wouldn't be a huge deal. Target is just a quick trip down the road. The thing about being out of Cherry Coke today is that it's 14 degrees outside.



I've been a stay (and work)-at-home mom now for almost a year and a half. Up to that point I had your average 9 to 5 type job which meant getting up early every day…

I know.  I’m having a baby in less than 1 week and need/should stop but I just can’t.  I’ve never been this uncomfortable during a pregnancy so since sitting and laying hurt, I’m standing.  A LOT.  And finding things to do around our home!  I planned to leave all of the Valentine’s Day decor up until after the baby arrived but on…

Homemade Donut Holes or Donuts

I bought several cans of biscuits on my last trip to the grocery store and my kids kept asking me what I planned on making with them since I normally don’t buy a ton of biscuits.  I told them that I was going to make them surprise using the biscuits.  Today my son asked me to make the surprise recipe.  I told…
