Call Me Ms. Productive Today!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Well, I didn't end up remembering to call my mom today, but I sure got a lot of other things done. This morning I vacuumed and shampooed the carpets in my daughters' rooms and their hallway, filed my state income taxes (already did federal), did several loads of laundry including folding and putting away, scrubbed/cleaned my shower and toilet, and even had time to watch a movie this afternoon once the work was done. That list doesn't even include some of my usual stuff like meal prep, working out, transporting kids, homeschooling and general tidying.

It was funny because as I was going about my work at home today my son asked me, "Mom, is your work at home harder or your work at the office?"
I answered, "My work at the office is harder for me because I don't love it. I love being home and keeping my home, so to me it's much easier work."
I went on to explain to him it's important when you chose a career path, to do work you love, so you'll find enjoyment in it even when you have to do stuff you don't necessarily prefer (like me scrubbing the shower). It really solidified my decision to come home in August just thinking about that. Thank God for answering my hearts cry!

P.S. Another answer to prayer: my cold is pretty much gone. Praise God!!

    I am so happy for you Paula. I agree with all that you've shared here today. God does answer prayer and what blessings we reap when we remember to share our lives with God. I am blessed to LOVE my job. It is a big help to me both physically and emotionally. I would be miserable in a job that I don't enjoy. I have enough stress at home, I don't need stress at work too. Love ya
