My husband is gone long hours for his new job, plus it is tax season. This means that all household/child related tasks fall onto me. I am also working 4 days a week most weeks, sometimes even 5. Although, my hours are not long and my job is not hard, I do spend all that time on my feet and by the time I get home my feet ache! Add this to trying to cut the grocery budget, deep clean each room of my house and just save money in general, it is overwhelming.
I am a homebody and I have always known that I am not cut out to work a full time job and raise a family. I have a great respect for those woman who do this. I rarely have a day anymore to just stay home and I miss it. I am looking forward to spring break and being able to have a few days to stay at home.
I have slowly been working on filling my freezer with crock pot meals that I can just dump in a turn on. I think this will help me alot to not have to worry about food costs and what is for dinner.
I have also slowly been deep cleaning each room and then making sure to maintain it so that it is not such a daunting task to get done the next time. Hopefully this will help also.
OK I feel better now getting that off my chest. I'll be back with a couple project posts soon :)
