For the past few months, I have been looking for ways to motivate myself as a stay at home mom. In many ways I feel that I am pulled in many other directions. I took some time out last week end to see the movie Julie & Julia. I think that it has encouraged me to look at life as more of a challenge. In some ways I have felt like I might be lacking in some domestic skills, so what better to motivate yourself, than to try something new.

So here it …



The mission:

The quest to becoming the ultimate domestic diva. The challenges include: learning to cook health meals that 3 picky kids will eat, basic sewing, decorating, and organizations skills, and entertainment coordinator. This is a big task, but I am up for the challenge…
The obstacle…
Time: with 4 busy schedules, softball, dance football games. How to organize myself enough to find balance and inner peace, without permanently damaging everyone in the process.
Budget: Darn you Dave Ramsy… we have a love/ hate relationship.


The unwilling participants…

Mason age 2.7
likes to play out side and tormit dogs.
learning to potty train. Thinks that McDonald's is "his friends house"

McKenzie age:8
loves art, cheerleading and softball. Hates cleaning her room.


Morgan age:15
Busy school and social calander.



Darling Hubby age: old enough
Trying to find his own balance between work and family.
Loves all sports.

Wish me luck!
-Cheers,
Amy

This is a great post!!!

It is so fun to try and learn how to do things you have always wanted to learn how to do. I used to pick one thing and take a month to really learn that skill. Some months/things only take a few days to learn while others took longer. And too, some of the new skills I really just enjoyed doing! ;)

Your blog is just precious!

Love and God's Blessings,
Cat

Best of Luck to you Amy! I have been struggling with this same thing as well. Maybe I need to get refocused. You seem to have a plan! I look forward to seeing what you come up with to motivate you! =)

xo, Jennifer
