I am relaxing this morning / early afternoon and it is SO nice :)
I woke up with no big pressure. I don't work till 3:30pm. The house is not a mess, the kids are up and eating while watching cartoons with DH. I stayed in bed for a bit reading magazines. I bought Archeology and The Economist yesterday so I enjoyed some of each for a while. The I sat and watched Indy play trains and now I am on the computer.
What amazes me is that since moving into this much larger house there is less housework. I think it is because the stuff all has room to be put away and the amount of dirt made and tracked in by each person is spread over a greater space. Basically Moms living in a smaller space have a lot more work to do. My daily chores are now dishes, laundry, wiping counters and tables and small pick ups. Sweeping has become a twice a week thing (except the kitchen), and major cleaning is weekly. It is so nice. Anyway I am off to do some more reading, see you all through out the week with all the busy things ahead of us :)
