This is not a complaint just airing my thoughts. What do you do as a stay at home mom, when you really want to be involved at school with the parent club and in the classroom, at church not only in your calling but help others as well, exercise, craft, help throw celebrations, take care of your kids...I am exhausted and I haven't even done anything yet. In fact my next goal is to clean my house so it will be ready in the morning for a baby shower. None of the jobs I take on are overwhelming, and if I were an organized individual it would not be an issue. I am a procrastinator, and a little on the lazy side too. This is NOT humility speaking it is fact. Will anyone who comes to my house please give me a "True Dat!" (Tara that was for you!) My house is not clean, infact it is rarely picked up with the exception of the 10 minutes before Jeremy gets home until I am left alone with the children again the next morning.
Again I am starting to get stuck in the rut that I hear my self repeating the phrase "If I can just get through this week." On my list of commitments, there is not one thing I want to scratch off or feel I need to scratch off. I am very fortunate to have friends who are willing to swap sitting with me so I can be available for my kids at school (I love my friends!) I am grateful for a husband that would prefer the house be clean, the laundry done and dinner on the table when he walks in the door, but roles up his sleeves, takes a deep breath and gets to work...some more. I have help, I am not doing this alone. But man I am exhausted. I am absolutely positive this has nothing to do with staying up until 2:00am having a great time chatting it up with some friends!
