Where does my inspiration come from for keeping my household together?  Several places... but when I really feel like I'm losing control I turn to Flylady.  Her methods and baby steps truly work... If I get way behind... and believe me I do... I start her baby steps again.  After a few last minute (necessary) trips at the beginning of the year I fell off the Flylady wagon so I've decided to begin the baby steps again this coming Monday.  I'm excited to start again because I was seeing such a difference before.  I'll definitely be blogging about that to keep me motivated.

While I'm on the subject of inspiration I have to give a big Thank You out to my husband.  He truly inspires me and motivates me to be the best homemaker I can be, if only for the fact that it is his dream as well.  As odd as it is to speak of ex's when you're already happily married, I bring it up only to prove a point... A guy I was dating pretty seriously, way back when, once told me that he would never be okay with his wife staying at home while he worked and brought in the income... I believe his exact words were "I'm not gonna work my butt off while you're home sitting and knitting".  I of course was appalled... because although at that time I couldn't have imagined what being a homemaker/stay at home mom really entailed, I did know enough to know that it was much more than "sitting and knitting".  So when I met my husband (or I should say "reconnected" but that's another post), it was a breath of fresh air to find out the kind of woman he wanted to marry was one who wanted to stay at home with the children and make their house a beautiful home and cook delicious meals.

I am so blessed to know this man and even more blessed to be married to him.  Oh and as frosting on the cake... One day all I did was crochet a baby blanket (I don't know how to knit)... and my husband thought it was the most magical thing ever! ;)

I love flying! Especially the flinging part of flying. I wasn't ever really taught how to be a home maker. Now that I'm a SAHM I find it challenging to keep up with the housework but she really helps put everything together!
