STAYING HOME AFTER ALL THE KIDS ARE OFF TO SCHOOL

Being a stay at home mom and never having a job since my kids have been born has kept me busy. I am a do-er. I enjoy a clean house, nice yard and organization. Whether it’s on a 40 acre ranch with kids running rampant or 1/2 an acre with only my kids (so far). I still find plenty to do! It’s a little different now because my schedule has changed. My kids are off to school on the bus and I have the day to get done whatever I please until they arrive again on the bus. While moms everywhere are dying for this day to come, the day all of their kids are in school and they can decide if they will go back to work or not. If not, they will decide what they want to do all day. They will do whatever they want! There are pros and cons to staying home after the kids are all in school.

Pros

Working out at home in peace. So you don’t have to pay that gym membership anymore.

You can eat whatever you want without the guilt of your kids asking for it and you don’t want to share.

Finally, time to read that book.

Shopping alone.

Lunch dates with the other half.

Going through their toys and tossing them. No one here to notice!

I love seeing my kids when they get home! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! I don’t care if they got a referral or were terrible. I missed them! Which could be a con too I guess…

Basically there is time to do whatever you want in a day.

The house stays much cleaner!

Cons

It does get lonely. (I’m sure this will go away with time)

They think you’ve been home doing nothing all day…Actually, everyone thinks that.

Because of that (stated above), they tend to have attitudes about you doing nothing all day and them having to go to school….

The things that need to be done IN the house seem to never end….EVER!

I talk to myself a lot. I ask myself questions and I answer them. I guess this could be a pro and a con. Nobody to talk back to me. And I’m always right. Or I’m a crazy person….

I enjoy my time alone. The freedom to choose what I will be doing without any interruptions but it does come with some flaws in the plan. That’s ok. Nothing in this world is perfect. I just go into every day embracing every moment. The good, the bad, the never ending.

Happy Friday My Friends
