Being a SAHM or SAHD has its own set of challenges.
For instance, do I really give enough of a crap to shower and put on deodorant today? That reminds me, I need to do both.
Do I use my time effectively? Or do I sit and play games and read blogs when I should be doing --- (cleaning, cooking, working at home type task)?
Well, I think I can answer that one pretty easily.
It is hard for me to find that balance. Some days I get a ton of work done, while some days it is as if I need a mental break and just veg out reading random crap on the internet. At least that is the excuse I tell myself.
I try to imagine what my grandmother's generation would have accomplished on a daily basis, and my guess would be, a helluva lot more than I do.
Have you found that balance? Sometimes I feel like the odd woman out for struggling to get it all done. Or heck, getting even part of it done. I know my work ethic isn't quite what it should be. I know I need to grow up. To tone my temper down. To think before I speak.
Who would have thought that being a mom doesn't mean you will automatically become mature? Hmph.
