I am newly back to the working world and i am finding it hard to have the energy to do all at home that I am used to doing while working a full week. I am having a hard time shifting my priorities...kids still number one of course...but my maid never showe up to tidy the house while we are gone, LOL.

I've been working since my kids were babies, I am still trying to figure it out! The hardest part for me is to get my husband to understand that while I know the house needs to be picked up and the laundry done, I would like to spend my time with my family; not cleaning when I get home. We usually have a couple of days a week where we just all have at it and get it done! So, unless you have something going on were you will have guests, spend the time with the fam and do the basic pick up. When I start to worry about people coming to my house my mom always says, "If they don't like it, they don't have to look at it." and "They are coming to see you, not how clean your house is!" I feel so much better when it's all done, but sometimes you have to just let it go for a little while.
