I documented my day now that I'm no longer working a 9-5. Granted this was an atypical day, but it was the only day I thought to document. But I see people do this all the time so I thought I'd try my hand at it. Hopefully, I don't bore my reader to tears. (Hi Mom!)
7:30 - Wake up with the kids (late). FF is already up and gone to his office to work. Spend some time snuggling, which is the best thing ever.
I guess now it's official. I am a full-time homesteader. My last day at my 9-5 office job was last Thursday, and I can't say that it has really sunken in yet that I'm not going back. Not that I want to. I met some really great people, and it's nice to have complete conversations with adults. But I'm enjoying my time with the kids, no matter how trying to my patience.
I see my future now as being wrapped up in family life - home, garden, animals, crafts. Not in a perfect Martha Stewart way ... more in a Tasha Tudor, fantastical way, but with a lot more foul language. Hey, I can't change EVERYTHING.
Right now I haven't made any radical decisions, but I'm keeping some options open. My writing, homeschooling and other things will keep me pretty busy. But I'm sure at some point I'll get restless. So I'm planning for a few contract things to swing my way.
Anyway, here's to the future (whatever that may be)! To you stay-at-home moms and dads - how do you keep it together? And is staying at home all you thought it would be?
I'm the wife of a Fledgling Farmer(FF) and mom to Fledgling Farmer Boy(FFB) and Fledgling Farmer Girl(FFG).
