Priorities

I’ve been reflecting on the public nature of blogging, and wondering whether it’s healthy to spill the ups and downs of my daily life live-to-air, so to speak; or, even more importantly, the lives of four children who have no say in the process. Ethics. Not sure. What do fellow bloggers think about this?
I’ve also figured out that my perpetually cranky mood relates to having too much to do, and not being able to do it to satisfaction; cursed perfectionism. Kevin sent me out for a solo walk yesterday afternoon, and while I was gone he organized the kids to fold laundry. That’s the pic above. I’m beginning to grasp that my future sanity is going to hinge on designating household responsibility, farming out some tasks, scaling back expectations, doing some ruthless prioritizing. Get a slow-cooker? Hire someone to clean weekly? Seriously. I need to entertain some alternatives. Suggestions welcome.

  1. Hello. I highly recommend the slow cooker. I use it often and it makes my life a lot easier. I don’t use it much in the summer but several times a week in the winter. I love it!

    I also just got a cleaner. She comes every other Friday for 3 hours and she cleans my main floor and my second floor. I still have to clean the basement and attic. I also still have to do a little cleaning during the off week. So far, I am glad that I have made this decision.

    I have been toying with the idea of a blog for awhile now and your post has made me re-think a little. I will be curious to see what your fellow mom bloggers say.

    Don’t know when I will see you next….Have a good week.

  3. Thanks for the link, Katie. I found her site very inspiring.
    And, Tricia, I keep thinking about this subject, and plan to make some small tweaks to the blog–but not give it up altogether. Thanks for the suggestions, too. And I’ll see you next Saturday for first aid, right?
