Really, I am like a huge hot mess. I get jealous of people who are like Type A. I like to be organized and try but I just have the hardest time getting it together. Lately, I have been freaking out. We are super busy in the office, my house is a wreck, I have another baby on the way, and my beloved helpers are going to be leaving me soon. I started to think if I could just get a little help around the house with laundry and all, maybe I wouldn’t be so frazzled. I put an ad in the local paper. I got a number of responses and one looked okay. I also got a referral from a friend for a lady looking for a part-time job. This WHOLE process caused me a tremendous of anxiety for some reason. I think I am just done with trying to trust people to work for me and meet my expectations. I don’t know. I want my girls I have now to stay with my forever but I know they can’t!
Anyhow, so this morning… before 9am… one of the women I interviewed last week called my phone. It is SUNDAY. This day is off-limits to work-related things (well unless it will make us a crap load of money). This particular person spoke so strongly of her faith and she has the nerve to call me before 9am on Sunday. That’s was all it took. I was done.
I spent most of the day trying to get organized. I need to get this family on schedules and routines so that we can keep up with the housework and reduce stress. Here is what I came up with and I am really excited to give it a try and see if we can our stuff together! I am not sure if anyone else struggles like I do but maybe this might be helpful? Not sure. I guess I will have to see if it helps me first! 🙂
