I was on here under a different screen name, and recently changed it. I thought maybe I'd share my story, and update with progress more regularly now. Here goes!
I've been struggling immensley with house and home since the end of March 2011. I have mental health issues that I have had difficulty with. Along with that, DH has never been a good housekeeper(he'd always been a bachelor before the kids and I came along). By the end of July 2011 I was able to get everything back in order, but it did not last. About a month ago, I became a SAHM.
I decided that I would like to attend college for a Bachelor's Degree. Classes start on August 25th(if it is decided that I can go, even part time), and my kids begin school on August 27th. My goal is to have the house clean, organized, and more home like by August 24th at the very latest(we will be celebrating DS4 5th birthday that weekend). It gives me a total of 5 1/2 weeks.
I am creating a plan of action. I've received many suggestions, and could always use more. :)
