Hi, Im new to this website. Im a conservative, proud, stay at home mom of three girls. I love my job but lately, with dear husband gone for months on end working in the oil fields, I find it difficult organizing my home life. The girls are ages 9, 5 and 1 1/2. I just finished weaning my 11/2 year old and I feel pooped. I clean the house and do the laundry everyday, cook and bake everyday, take the dog out 3 times, let the kids take care of their family pets. I end up waking up earlier and earlier just to stay on top of everything. I wonder if I should let the house get dirty sometimes and stop feeling guilty. Its almost summer break and I fear that if I dont have a schedual in place for these kids, I will surely break down. What should I do ?
