What do you do all day?

I get asked that a lot as a stay at home mom of 4 with only one at home during the day.
Some people asked nicely, just purely curious and others ask in that "you should get a job" kind of voice.

I am a little out of sorts this year- having only one home for the first time in 5 years.

And my babysitting has drastically cut down.

I go to some prayer groups and bring the little guy to a library program and I try to fellowship with women from my church.

I try to keep up with the cleaning- I can't believe how much laundry I have lately. Then today, it dawned on me- in the summer I kept up with the wash, because it was so much less. I would wash a pair of shorts, a shirt and some underwear for a kid. Now it is socks, pants, a shirt, an undershirt and possibly a sweater. It adds up!

I am cooking, but need to re-vamp the recipe situation.

I recently read an article about a junior high school student who started her own online vegan bakery. So cool!

But, what struck me was she is in a college prep school, takes really hard classes and had a ton of extra-curricular things to do and then had her own lucrative business. Yes, I am busy, but why not?

I need to do that. I need to develop some kind of at home business. Which brought me back to my etsy idea. So, today, I am vowing to have my etsy store up and running within the next 2 weeks for all of you to see. I have a lot of ideas of what I would like to make- finding the time to do so has been the issue.

Keep checking back!
