I won’t complain, although I may get grumpy after looking at a messy house for a few days. Now that I have added part-time work to my schedule, I am noticing the house is much more cluttered and it’s not the “clean” I like it to be. I’m thinking it’s time to incorporate daily chores instead of spending 3 hours on my day off getting the house clean.
I have so much respect for the families who have two working parents or the single mom who does it all. You amaze me! The last few days, I have been thinking of those 15 hours a week I use to spend at home. Not all of it was spent cleaning but it definitely made a difference.
Going back to work has been wonderful and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I just need to find my happy “clean” place around here. I would love to know how you manage the cleaning as a working mom?
