My Day as a Work at Home Mom
10:45 a.m. - As I continue on my journey to make a decent amount of money from home so that I may help out with the household bills, I have struggles every day. It always seems I cannot keep my house clean enough, pay enough attention to my children or to my husband or get all of my work done, for that matter! Today, I am behind on my forum posting so I need to get on the ball there. I have a giant mountain of dishes in my sink, and dirty laundry everywhere! I have been making an effort to do something fun with the kids every day, like take a walk or bake cookies. I haven't quite decided what we will do today. I'm really leaning forward to peanut butter cookies. We haven't done that in some time. Right now, my uncle is on his way to come visit, then we are going to pick my daughter up from school. Then it will be lunch time! I guess I'll try to get some more work done later!
1:15 p.m. - Ok, so I thought I would try something new with the kids to get them a bit more interested in picking up their messes. (If that is even possible.) I made a "list" of things for them to do; but since they cannot read, I drew pictures of them doing their chores and then explained what they were to do. Of course, they are acting like it's the end of the world. I guess I'll have to help them do it later, but I need to squeeze in some work now; if I expect to get it done today.
3:38 p.m. - I am finally done with my forum posting for the week. I made about $12 for the entire week, but it really didn't take me very long. Every little bit helps I suppose. All of my dishes are done, the baby is asleep and the rest of the house is a mess. The other two kids never did pick up the things I asked them to. *sigh*
6:45 p.m. - Ah, the day is coming to a close. The kids finally cleaned up the stuff I asked them to, I got dinner started, and the kitchen cleaned up. I am so glad the weekend is almost here! I will still have a chance to work in the morning as my husband will be working until lunch time. I had an issue today with the Work At Home forum that I go to. I didn't realize I'm not supposed to post links to my site other than in my signature so a post got deleted. OOPS. Oh well, I guess you live and learn. I suppose if I make this website a good one then I won't have to worry about generating traffic. That should take care of itself, I hope from word of mouth etc. I'm one of those terribly impatient people; one of my downfalls. Alright, I'm going to go fix dinner and get the kids in bed.
