Stay At Home Mom, Work Abroad Dad

This blog has taken me a really long time to write. I can honestly say that I have spent more time thinking about it and working on it than I have in any other writing assignment I have ever had. The reason for this is that I had some really inspiring women give me their stories. I want to do their stories justice and I want to convey how awesome they are and I started over about 10 times on this blog because I wanted to make sure I was doing just that.

I grew up with a father that was and still is in the oilfield. He was gone all the time. His schedule for as long as I could remember was 8 and 4. That’s 8 days and nights away from home and 4 days home. In theory it doesn’t sound that bad, but 2 of the four days were spent traveling either to or from work.

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 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.
