The flylady way

Of all the things I wish I could accomplish, the thing that tops my priority list would have to be total home organization. I have about a million things that I want to despatetly want to accomplish throughout the day, and yet I feel like I am constantly trying to play catch up. I know that if I could just really get into a routine (after all, with 4 kids I really should have one) and stick to it so that I have more time. That is my overall goal, more time. Time to play with the kids, catch up on babybooks and scrapbooking, maybe read a book, to a fun craft with the kids. But I am always doing some menial task that takes me away from what I really want to be doing.

I know that there are people out there that says that the cleaning can wait, my kids are only little for so long. And that's fine, if you want to live in CHAOS... persoanlly I do not. But breaking the habit, and learning how to FLY can be hard. Especially with the 3 little ones wanting nothing more then attention from Mommy. I keep telling myself that it is going to get easier, and then things will fall into place but that point seems so far off.

I would love to hear how real moms balance everything...

I try to learn something new everyday, try to embrace a new habit, but old habits die hard and it takes work... lots of work.

Mommy Blogging

I am just so amazed at the wealth of knowledge I can discover just by reading "mommy bogs". It is so nice to be able to google just about anything you have a question about, and know that someone out there in cyberworld can answer for you in seconds! It is so comforting to know that we are not alone her in mommy world. And while real world advise is always nice, sometimes you don't want to just lay all your problems or issues out there for everyone to know about.

One of my absolute favorites is www.moneysavingmom.com, the name of the page pretty much sums up what it is all about but I cannot recommend it enough. I tell every mom I meet about it!
