Housework, The Never Ending Battle

My least favorite aspect of being a mom and wife is HOUSEWORK. Yuck! I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the quote, ‘cleaning house while you still have children is like shoveling the drive while it’s still snowing’ but that is exactly how it is!

If I clean while the kids are at school, it’s much easier to get it done, but as soon as the walk in the door, it looks like an explosion of backpacks, shoes and homework. If I clean while they are here, it’s even more pointless. As soon as I have one spot clean, they swarm to it like angry bees. Needless to say my house is never clean for very long.
Luckily my kids are getting old enough to help out. My daughter has dish washing duty (loading the dishwasher). Is it wrong that I assigned her one of my least favorite things to do? My 5 year old clears the table and wipes it down after dinner and they all help out picking up their toys.

The Week in Geek: My Kindle Dilemma

Every time I bring up the subject of wanting a Kindle, someone inevitably mentions, “There’s an app for that.” They’re right, of course. It’s a small download, minimal fuss to get it set up the way I want it on my Android phone, and I could be off and reading.

Therein lies the problem.

The Morning Of A Stay At Home Mom

I’m a stay-at-home mom. When I tell people that, I get a lot of “What do you do all day?” I really wish I could say that I do nothing, that I sit around and watch soaps and internet shop all day long.

In all honesty, at the end of the day when I look back, I haven’t gotten anything noticeable done. I’m sure my husband wonders what I do all day, too. So I decided to write down every single thing I did for one day. Just to give you a glimpse of what I do. Here is a typical Tuesday morning.

And You Thought Coffee Was Bad.

I was looking over the front page of Yahoo the other day and noticed a story that really got me thinking. After all these years of thinking coffee is not for me, I might have to change that.

I will drink coffee only if it has loads of sugar and cream. I also really like mocha frappacinos from either Starbucks or Hastingssince they give me the energy I need in the morning. That was the reason I drink those, but after doing a little research coffee actually has some really good benefits.
