Thank you for following my weekly planning series. Now that we've chosen a planner or calendar system it's time to fill it in! Here's how I fill in mine.
As parents...especially moms we have so much on our plates, that time becomes a precious commodity. There is never enough of it go around. I know that I hear myself saying, “give me a minute” about 100 times a day. And unfortunately what I really mean is “I hope you’ll forget what you wanted to tell me so that I could finish what I’m doing and move on to my next task”. I know...mom of the year right here!
Happy 4th of July!
Chore charts have been an on-going struggle in our household for quite a number of years. My husband and I grew up on completely different ends of the spectrum when it came to household chores and what the children were responsible for. I never had to do any chores...like ever! My husband did. We decided we did want our kids to have some responsibility when it came to our family and our home but I have to say that we’ve never been successful and finding a system that works.

Women lead businesses, we run households, we are raising the future of humanity. Women are daughters, we are wives, we are moms. Here are 10 facts every woman should know!

Trying to keep up with the daily influx of emails, phone calls and customer demands can be quite a cumbersome task for any employee. Now imagine you're the boss...and your office had little hands and tiny toes underfoot all the time!!!
About a year ago in one of the facebook groups I follow there was a mom asking for organizational help. As moms we usually have too many things to do in a very limited amount of time, with little hands pulling us; most of the times in different directions. I decided to help out this fellow mom because even in the midst of my chaos nothing makes me happier than planning.
This month has had me questioning my why. Why am on this life path? Why have I chosen to do the work I do? I am now a year older and with each year that passes the need to “become somebody” has gotten stronger. Don’t get me wrong…I’m in no way trying to undermine or devalue my job as a mom.
