It is amazing to me how busy I can be since I am not working. Between my daughter's soccer schedule and both kids social schedule, it seems I never get caught up on housework. I think since I am not working that my house is in worse shape than it was when I was working.
Part of the problem is that since I am not working, everyone has the mentality that "Mom, has time to do it", so I get less help. And since I am trying to live off less money, I am taking the time to clip coupons, look for deals, etc..., which all takes time. Actually it takes more time than most people realize. Now, grocery shopping takes significantly longer as does running errands when I am always searching for the best deal.
I look back now and wonder how I had time to work.
