and I know a lot of working moms out there can relate to my experience.
My family lives the American way – we have no househelp so the husband and I have to divide the house chores but sometimes the chores, errands, and mommy obligations on top of my work can be a bit overwhelming. My work is fairly easy but the topics given to me are so boring that it also adds stress to my already stressful life. Just imagine days of making websites for cla supplement, fat loss programs, weight loss ebooks, muscles, muscles and more muscles. It’s getting into my nerves XD
Also, my 4-year old is asking for too much attention these days. All she wants is for me to play with her every single moment – I give in sometimes, but my work is suffering too! She wants me to sleep with her so oftentimes we would nap at noon until late in the afternoon. My heart breaks every time I tell her to just watch TV or play because I’m busy – she’s an only child so I could feel her loneliness.
Guilt is killing me.
I know that a lot of you here would say that “oh, it’s okay – family should come first.” but reality check – my work is our bread and butter so we couldn’t survive without me working. *sigh*
As a solution, I dropped all my other clients and focused on only one so I could have more time for my little girl. Tending to multiple clients defeats the purpose of being a work-at-home, right? The pay is good so I don’t need more but why does it seem 24 hours is not enough for me?
So how do you survive your day-to-day fellow WAHMs? I tried making a daily schedule but it seems easier to do on paper but extremely hard to follow.
