I feel as though I am failing as a “homemaker.” Don’t get me wrong, I feel like I’m doing the best job I can with Jackson; but I feel like my house is chaos. I feel bad for Greg. He is doing a wonderful job as husband, dad and breadwinner. He works every day to provide for us and succeeds. Then the poor guy has to come home to a house with laundry piled around and dishes in the sink. I always thought I could get SO much done as a stay at home mom. Then I became one.
Now, I feed Jackson, play with him, feed him again, take him to a class and the next thing I know it is dinner and bath time. Laundry is still sitting around, littering each room as it taunts me in its unkempt piles. Now it is 10:30 on a Sunday night and I haven’t accomplished much for our poor house. However, I did have a great day with Jackson at the pool and then washed my car as he napped.
Do you stay at home moms feel like your day is feed, play, bath & repeat? Why can’t I get more organized? Greg, I’m sorry the house has suffered! I feel like I have a huge weight on my shoulders because of it, even though you haven’t once complained– thank you. I hate living in a house with stacks of clothes around… Tomorrow I am going to wipe the slate clean and start a new check list and get stuff done! I’m going to work on taking care of this laundry, unpacking Jackson’s suitcase from our trip two weeks ago, visiting (and commenting) on my friends’ blogs and writing more on this blog. I took the first step in simplifying my life by *sort of* closing my family blog and redirecting them here. There was no way two blogs were going to get updated when I could barely write for one!
SAHMs, I’d love any sort of advice you can offer me! Thanks 🙂
