I feel like every few months or so I really need to take a minute and focus on this. I did NOT become a SAHM to clean my house. Or do projects around the house. I became a SAHM to be a MOM! Full time! And that's what I have to put foremost in my mind. I'm not saying I'm giving up on cleaning (I wish), but I have to balance it more. I'm fed up with so many areas of clutter around the house, but I still need to put the kids first. That's definitely my resolution for the New Year, and I'm going to create a doable plan (AGAIN) for how to get everything accomplished during any given week.
Now ignore what I just wrote because I'm off to ignore the kids so I can clean the house before we leave for DH's parents to spend Christmas. :) All right, I'm not REALLY ignoring the kids, DH is "in charge" this morning, but that's the kind of mood I'm in!
