Good Morning Company Girls!
Well, as I sit here with my cup of tea, I've been giving some thought to a blog post I read yesterday at this site http://www.raisingfive.com/. This is a blog that I think was the second blog that I started reading regularly....it just happens to be Rachel Anne's sister, Katherine. She was mentioning about a helpful website that she was incorporating to help her in her life. I went to it and looked at it and it gave me a few ideas to try in mine.
You see last weekend I mentioned going and cleaning the trailer to ready it up for the people renting it.....well,.....not only was I in pain on Sunday....I was in severe, can barely use my hands and arms , sit around like a useless log kind of pain.....all week!!! I couldn't even do my beloved quilting....now people that is serious ...there are precious quilts to be made!!
I have a disability that I was born with that affects my arms, hands and back.......the doctor told me about ten years ago that my arm muscles and back muscles could be compared to an eighty year old...all worn out. That's a little disconcerting when you're in your forty's! Usually when I do housework these days.....I spread it all out, doing little bits at a time...my kids do a little,...my hubby does a ton. In looking at these teens in my house....it's like, wait a minute...these bodies are all bigger than you, all stronger than you, all have muscles that work better than yours...well, maybe not Megan, her motor skills leave a lot to be desired...although the muscles are still younger than mine! So,...after going to this website....Kathy Peel's Family Manager.com and looking at this...the 'Whose Responsible for What' form...I've decided that there will be a little family meeting in our house.....a little changing of the guard, so to speak.....there will be rebellion , no doubt about it.....the teens in my house our genuinely unmotivated unless they can benefit financially...and I can't afford to pay them.....so it should be an interesting meeting...don't ya think? I'll let you know next Friday just how it goes!
Have an excellent week! One more week til school!!!!!!!!
