Being the best you is important, it is also equally important to go easy on yourself. I want to apologize a few of my recent posts. I all but said you need to be perfect in your daily life to be a good homemaker. A lot of you homemakers work really hard. You just need someone to tell you its ok to take it easy.

The problem was I am an excellent debater I can talk my self out of anything. So every night I would go to bed with the best intentions of waking up early. When morning came I would come up with every possible reason I needed to stay in bed and get just a little bit more sleep. This was a nightmare that recurred nearly every morning for 5 years.
