{ Sunday...does it really matter as a mom? }

You know I was thinking earlier and actually stated it out loud to my family.  There really is no weekend for me, every day is the same day.

They kind of looked at me weird because they weren't understanding what I was saying, and so I explained that as a mom, as a homemaker, I don't get weekends off work.  What I do on a Monday, a Thursday, a what I do on a Saturday and Sunday.  There really is no difference.

Boy am I glad I actually love what I do, or I would be in serious trouble.

Not going to lie though, there are days that I feel like I really could have used an actual weekend of doing absolutely nothing, and having the time dragging on.


I'll have to show you what I was up to today.  I'm sitting here in bed getting ready to go to sleep and knowing it's Monday tomorrow and wondering what exactly I did for fun or to relax today.  I was busy from morning to night.

My day started with yard work.  We are now done mowing all 3 acres and it looks amazing :)  There's something very rewarding about looking back after all that mowing and seeing beautiful, green cut grass.

While Curt finished off the back yard, I started work on the front, more specifically the flower beds right in front of the house.  They have been giving us headaches since we moved in.  Last year, I pulled everything out, and planted wildflowers, the flowers came in but so did all the weeds and annoying spiky prickly things.

I didn't quite get as much done as I wanted because I started getting taunted by a wasp and decided it's best that I be the one to back off.  I don't think I would win that fight.  Also found one of their nests, so tomorrow I'm spraying it.

I did all my laundry, including kitchen towels, bath rowels, linens and the kid's baskets as well.  Everything is washed....not everything is put away, but you know how that goes right?

Made some quick and easy frozen pizza for lunch.

It's been pretty cloudy and dark all day, we are expecting storms tonight, so I had all my scentsy burners and candles on.

While waiting for the laundry to dry, and folding two loads, I sat and worked on the blog book.  I actually just finished 2009, so happy about that.

Marley always takes naps on the couch, and right up against me, or with his head on my lap.  He is just the sweetest big boy. 

Once all housework was done and the laundry folded, I got dinner done.  I made a simple cheese stuffed meatloaf.  There are quite a few meatloaf recipes on the food blog, if any of you are interested in looking or trying for yourself.

And that my friends was pretty much my Sunday.  It just zipped right by, was filled with busy homemaking things with a cup of coffee thrown in mid afternoon, and some puppy snuggles too.

By the way, I am almost 100% back to normal, the medication has been a total life saver.  Once again I followed God's guidance.  I had been feeling unwell for over a week and finally, before I called to make the appointment, I was standing in the kitchen trying to do dishes and feeling extremely frustrated with the lightheaded and congestion feeling.

I stopped and prayed out loud to God, asking Him to please guide me and let me know, just give me a push as to whether this is something that will go away on it's own, or if I need to go see a doctor.

Within 10 minutes, I was feeling led to make the appointment and go in.  Oh goodness, if only I would follow His lead more often instead of fighting it.

But yeah, I'm feeling much better, already finished my Sudafed and am now just on the Amoxicillin and Allegra.  I have to take the antibiotics until they're finished, and as for the Allegra, the doctor suggested taking one every day during allergy season, so I think I'll continue with that for now because it really is helping.

Well friends, I hope you all had a good weekend, if you did anything fun or exciting, I would love to hear it.

I'm going to call it a night and try to get some sleep.  I'll be back early morning with my Happy Homemaker Monday. :)


  1. Love this post. Always love to read a post about your day..I wish I can say I love being a homemaker as much as you do. You have been a great source of inspiration for me. I am learning to be thankful each day and to enjoy what I do at home.Thank you.

  2. This for me is the hardest thing about being a housewife. I have finally come to the conclusion that only I can free up time for myself. Sometimes, I just have to let things be and do something else. With a toddler, and entire day off is impossible, but before he was born, I was keeping up really good with just an older child in school, and taking a whole day off was easy -- but it had to be a school day! So with that in mind, I leave the dishes, the laundry, the whatever, and spend the afternoon sewing or doing nothing at all! An hour or two here and there really helps. Someday, I can manage a whole day again!
