Becoming an early riser is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done but I can honestly say I am officially an early riser. I have been waking up at 6am every morning for around 2 1/2 months. That may not seem like its that long but believe me, I feel like I have jumped over some kind of wall that has been in my way for my whole life. I am not kidding when I say I have been dreaming of waking up before my kids ever since I had my second child 5 years ago. 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. My amazing debating skills had created a life time of being late and lazy. I was so sick of it, it made me feel so discouraged. I just always thought how do I talk my super tired ADD self into staying awake rather than my very convincing self talking me into going back to bed. I did tons of research and finally came up with an amazing fool prof system. [Read more…]

As a work at home mom it can seem like a challenge to get through the day feeling like you haven’t accomplished anything. The truth is you have probably accomplished so much and you don’t even realize it. This is not only true for work at home moms but just moms in general. The reason you feel this way is because you didn’t accomplish enough if any of your top priority items. This can be avoided if you write down a schedule and list out your tasks lists by top priority to lowest priority. I do this every morning after my bible time to see what I have going on for that day. I start with my routine everyday items and list the extras or more specific items. Then I fill in the rest of the day starting with top priority in a realistic time block. I say realistic because if you cram to much in, you are likely to do only half of that. Which lowers the chances of you getting the important stuff done. Follow these 4 steps to the perfect WAHM schedule. [Read more…]
Before implementing these 6 strategies, my life was a never ending day of chaos. Trying to homeschool, work on my blog, work on my craft business, play with the kids, clean the house, and make meal was not something I could accomplish. Doing my job as a homemaker, mom, and wife are my top priorities and the work I was doing was not reflecting that. I was taking way to much time away from my family hyper focusing in my blog or craft business. On top of that I was getting upset at my poor kids for interrupting me when I was working. That was my wake up call. I realized what I was doing and decided I needed to take action quick. These 6 strategies have brought me back to center and allowing me to focus on what is important while being able to balance the rest. [Read more…]
This is the first post in my Homemaking 101 series. I realized after a bit of research that the word homemaker is not a common word today. I was really surprised by this as it is a part of my everyday life and I feel like it is one of the most important rolls in society. We are raising the future. We are meeting our husbands (or wives) needs so they can leave and work. We make sure the home runs smooth. We make the house into a home. We are the back bone of the family!!! [Read more…]
