See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Do any of you live in a household where both you and your spouse stay home? We just started this new arrangement about 6 months ago, and its been a bit of a learning curve. I'm really bossy and controlling about the way housework is done, so I prefer to just do it myself. Problem is, I get sooo lazy when he's here. His business only has him out of the house an average of 1 day a week, so I do get stuff done then, but when he's home there's virtually no schedule. Our kids aren't in school yet, so we don't even have that to schedule. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy being able to do whatever we want, whenever we want, but when we're not out of the house doing something, I feel like we're doing NOTHING. Its so hard for me to get used to, for the first few years of being a mother we were both workaholics. Seriously out of the house like 70 hours a week each, and many times at opposite times. So its like we're just learning how to be with each other 24 hours a day. I KNOW its the right choice for our family, we've been making so many awesome memories, I just can't for the life of me get used to at times doing nothing and enjoy it. Its like my mind wants to do something. How did you get used to both being home all the time???? Do you schedule your days?
