Motivated

I found this chore planner on my friends blog and i am hoping to become a "motivated mom" LOL I always feel like something needs done chore-wise and i cant keep on top of things and it becomes overwhelming and then nothing gets done. This chore planner gives me certain things to do each day so i can just do those things and not be overwhelmed by everything else! Plus i just love ticking things of a list! So for just $2 i am now a motivated mum ha ha ha. I'll keep you updated!

Im returning to work 4 weeks tomorrow and im dreading it. Its only one day a week for November and December, then 2 days a week from January. No big deal. I really dont want to though! Im a bit of a control freak i think, i dont want anyone else looking after Caleb! Between my mum and my husband we should have it covered but Caleb and i are in a groove, we know what to do and when, it'll be really hard leaving him for a whole day with someone other than my DH, even though its just my mum. I like things done my way, she likes things done hers! The funding for my job finishes in March so maybe i'll just take another break then if its not working out.

I am sure that leaving Caleb will be a wrench for you. Hopefully, you can work something out. Wishing you all the best.

Hahaha! I think I need to become a motivated mum as well. My chores never seem to get done. One week rolls into the next and my free time is slowly disappearing and the chores keep piling up.

You're not the only one who should be a motivated mum, but can someone please motivate my DH too? Please? I give up when it gets to the point of tidying up after him all the time! He's messier than the kids!

Well, at least 1 day a week isn't so bad - at least you won't be back full time. It took me ages to settle in at work again and I think some of the problems I'm having at work now are still related to being off last year :(
But, as I said at least you'll only be doing 1 day a week, at least to start with. It'll make Caleb appreciate you even more! LOL

Caleb will have a great time and it will do you both good to have a little break. Absence makes the heart grow stronger and all that lark. The meet up was with peeps from the internet - you could come too!! Scotland's not that far lol!! xx

I have the best intentions week to week to keep house. Accomplishments are another thing entirely. Good luck!
