Today is a holiday, so I decided to keep it as a day off. I should have known better! Here's how my day has looked so far:
Up at 5 am, drop off family member at 5 35 am - Of course my daughter isn't going back to sleep!
Breakfast by 6 am, then the chores start.
Load dishwasher with dishes hiding in various places around my house
Thank goodness for the dishwasher!!
Research and writ blog post about back to school shopping
Pack stuff to go for a walk, drive to location of walk to meet other moms
Walk around town while pushing super light stroller filled by 30lb toddler
Stop at grocery store on ride home
Post busines advertisements on several FB groups and pages
Join liking ladder and open wall pages to gain likes
Gain 5 likes on my page in exchange for the 45 I had to like, according to rules.
Decide liking ladders may not be worth it and look for alternative, or pages who inforce rules more
Add an app to the page for give aways
Post information for items I'm crafting
Play a game
Clean up the game
Fold laundry and put it back in the basket with hopes that it will put itself away
I really do wish laundry could put itself away!!
Write another blog post about all the things I've done on my day off
Realize it's not even 2 30 pm :(
Fold second load of laundry
Clean up cat food from the floor
Clean up water from the floor
Other necessary actions when caring for a child (help wash hands, get juice, retrieve lost toys, step on and move toys found on the floor, clean up spilled juice and replace with more...)
Still left to do today:
PUT LAUNDRY AWAY (yeah, that's probably not gonna happen...)
Approach companies about products to review
Approach companies about products to give away
Clean/bath the child
Share my successes!
I'm almost glad that tomorrow is a normal work day!! I know many moms who do this and more in a day, and to them I say good job! Work At Home Moms and Stay At Home Moms are among the hardest working people I know.
