I need to clean! My mom is coming! How do we balance it all?

I get this question fairly often ~ how do I balance it all? Three kids, the house, and the blog. Plus some of you probably don’t know but I also have two very part time jobs I do from home!

I had a BeachBum ask me this yesterday and then she went on to add ~ Are you SuperMom?

NO I am not!

I have a confession to make and I am embaressed to tell you, but it is that my house is a MESS!

That is how I balance it all ~ by ignoring the piles that continues to grow daily.

My mom is coming to visit at the end of next week so you know what that means. She’ll be looking around with a critical eye. But part of me is glad for this eye because it gives me a reason to get my butt moving and get organized!

Here is what I have going on…

Laundry…I’m actually pretty good about this. I keep it up. Now once it’s clean it may not get folded or put in drawers for a week…or two…

Dishes…I try to keep up…but it just does not happen until there are no more spoons left in the drawer.

Toys…most of the time I don’t even try to keep up…

Clothes…summer shorts & sandals need to come out to a permanent space and winter items stored away

Boxes…I have “stuff” that I put in boxes when I want to get it out of the way but don’t really have a place for it. I’m starting to have too many boxes…


HELP! Motivate me! Get me organized! I don’t want to start a schedule but maybe I need to?

Are you SuperMom? How do you balance it all?
