This is harder than I thought

OK, so making this goal was probably not a good idea coming off of the holidays and a vacation. So, in essence, I have not done anything differently than I have all along. But, I do have a lengthy list of things I would like to do, and intend to accomplish. I do not feel like I have failed, because my family is fed, the house is relatively clean, I am working full time still, until I can release the guilt of letting others down, and I am training for a marathon. So tomorrow, the housekeeper is coming and I have my long run. The marathon is in one week from Sunday, so I need to focus on getting a time less than four hours. My goal for tomorrow is to put up the Valentine's Day curtains and put the Quicken money manager on my computer, because having a balanced budget is a homemakers job. I will report tomorrow night (as long as work isn't too busy).

This is IT!!!!

Starting today (and I am on vacation, so it doesn't really count today, but I have done the part with trying to keep a happy home), I am a homemaker. BY CHOICE. I have quit my full time nursing job to become a homemaker to a home that holds one supportive, handsome husband, and four darling children. I am doing this to improve the quality of my home, bring unity to my family, and get the guilt out of me! So, when I get back home, I will start this journey, so tomorrow I have ten hours to think about how I am going to accomplish this. So get ready for pictures of before and after shots of the projects that I have and after I finish them. Wish me luck. And wish my family luck. They will probably need it.
