  • When I was a SAHM I would play with the kids, play online, babysit, worked with Melaleuca, went to the park, went grocery shopping, etc.

    Now I work out of the home at a healthcare company and I love it! Plus I still get the time to play with the kids and such also! :)

    I LOVE being a provider.

  • I do pretty much everything! I get up early to go workout and then I come home to make breakfast, get the kids dressed, get myself ready, clean up the kitchen from breakfast, start a load of laundry, get lunch and supper ideas and food prep ready. Then we usually have a playdate, dr. appt, grocery shopping, ect. We have are part of the library summer readying program so we read a lot. We then have lunch and quite/nap time and then we go outside to play. Another load of laundry plus picking up toys and then we make dinner and eat. Then we go to evening swim lessons and baths when we get home. Then some more reading time and bed. It's much busier than this during the school year though because we have soccer, dance, gymnastics and school as well!

  • I had a huge vegetable garden and fruit trees and after harvesting the fruits and vegetables I canned and froze them. I prepared meals from scratch. I cleaned house and raised the boys, took them to the library, read to them and played. Taught them letters and counting.

  • We do yard work, swim in the pool, clean house, laundry,housework,help walk our dogs, it's all a team effort. On days when it's raining, we watch movies, they play in their bedrooms, color, draw, help make lunches, dinner, etc. When they are back in school I will be taking some online classes, and having some ME time. Hubby is gone 4-6 weeks at a time working, so when he's home it's for a couple weeks, so we take our boys rock crawling in our jeep, out on our jet ski's, or just hang out at home and get jobs done... We stay busy but also have plenty of down time.
