I'm in my third full week of being a newly stay-at-hom-mom and I have found that all the things of my "Things I'm Going to Do When I Come Home" list are not getting done! So my title speaks correctly. Here in the real world, or realitiy, cooking, driving to early morning seminary, cleaning the house, doing errands, paying bills, enertaining kids, etc. are taking the place of all the wonderful things I have planned! I have only scrapbooked twice during the last three weeks. I just knew I would be scrapping every day! I can't give up hope. I'm still in the "adjusting" stage and haven't yet created a set daily schedule. For almost 9 years, Huntsville City Schools set my daily schedule for me. It was very easy to follow and I was held accountable. Now I'm on my own! I'm accountable to myself and that's scary! I would love some help from all you stay-at-home moms. How do you make your schedule? How do you discipline yourself to stay on schedule? Do you have set days you do laundry? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
I'm a brand new stay-at-home mom after almost nine years of teaching elementary physical education. I am married to a fantastic husband of fifteen years who loves me for who I am and is very supportive in all that I do, especially scrapbooking! We have a an almost 16 year old son who loves sports and is your typcial teenager in every fashion, shape and form. Our 13 year old daughter is the musician in the family and cannot wait to be a teenager! Our family wouldn't be complete without our weiner dog and standard poodle, Benny & Carhartt. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful family and am extremely happy where I am in my life.
