I often think of those moms who accomplish so much during the weekend – shopping excursions, redecorating, yard projects, arts and crafts fun, laundry, etc. – and wonder…
Seriously? Where do they find the time? The energy? The motivation? All of the above? After struggling through 5 working days my weekends are usually filled with sleep, stuffing the necessary clothing in the washing machine, more sleep and attempting to keep the front room clean in case someone decides to pay a surprise visit.
I know I’m not alone…Right???
These thoughts came to me as I sit in my house at 10 PM reflecting on all the things I should have done and now that I’ve gotten my kids tucked in for the night – well, all except my youngest son who thinks I didn’t see him sneak back in the family room and is now zonked out behind the couch – I face the dilemma of staying up for another 2 hours to complete the necessary tasks or calling it a night and starting my weekly cycle all over again.
I think the bed is going to win, but next weekend will be different….I promise 🙂

Do what you can when you can. When I use to work I made sure I divided responsibility to the hubs who did half of everything.
