On Being a "Keeper At Home"
I have a saying that I love to quote to my friends:
"You can't be a "keeper at home" if you are not at home to keep it."
I don't know about anyone else out there, but those days when you're popping in & out all day for errands, do nothing to help my housekeeping skills. I need to semi-schedule at least, breaking my jobs into brackets during the day. If I can accomplish something in a space of time then I feel I've done something concrete with my day. I love to alternate between jobs & time with the children. When I am in & out all day the house is a mess.
If I am home most of the time, the house has a greater sense of order & then I feel free to enjoy a special family day out.
Does anyone have any tips to share?
