What am I going to do differently in this season?
- I’m going to ask my husband for help in specific ways. He is actually very helpful when I ask I just don’t think to ask.
- I’m going to start back up my kids’ chores. We’ve had a very eventful last 5 months and chores were almost thrown to the wayside but no more!
- I’m going to continue using Wal-Mart Grocery Pick-Up. It’s saves my behind on a regular basis, doesn’t cost extra, and my kids don’t have to get out of the van. Let me repeat that last part again. Because I homeschool and have younger children who can’t be left home alone I have to take all my kids with me when I get groceries. With Wal-Mart Grocery Pick-Up they never even unbuckle. I mean I would pay for that but they don't even make me.
- The last thing I’m going to do is take some money I’ve set aside and pay my neighbor (who professionally cleans houses) to come help me get caught up in deep cleaning a few areas of my home before the holidays. We’ve been blessed enough to have a little bit of money set aside to do this and I’ve decided not to feel guilty about legitimately needing the help! Especially when it can be a benefit to another family in my neighborhood right before Christmas.
Learn these lessons now and don’t be like me where it takes getting rather sick before you’re willing to slow down! And remember, being the manager of your home doesn’t mean you physically do everything yourself. Managers train and delegate!!! What are you going to do different?
