Ok, so I’ve decided what the changes to this blog will look like 🙂
First of all, there’s the obvious look of the site that’s changed.
Secondly, I’ve decided that this blog is just too cluttered with various ares of my life – mother, woman, wife, maid, childcare provider, etc. So I’ve chosen to dedicate this site to my job as a WAHM (Work At Home MOM), as it was originally intended.
WAHM In A Jam is where I’ll update you on all the cuteness, chaos and crafts surrounding me as a mother. This will become more of a cutesy site where I can share the joys and challenges of motherhood.
A Domestic Duchess is WAM’s sister site, where my life as a wife will unfold. This is the stuff you’re familiar with, but better 🙂 Feel free to Follow me on this wild and wonderful journey 😀
That’s right, I’ve changed the look of my blog, and I kinda like it. It’s not as stream-lined as my last one, and I probably won’t keep it as long, but it’s cute and playful, so for now, this is me 🙂 Feel free to let me know if you like it or not. I used to have one that I loved, but WordPress doesn’t have it available anymore.
On top of the obvious change, I’m going to be minimizing the categories, and probably changing them altogether. Could be an interesting time 😀
The kitchen is probably my least favorite room in the house. Most women cook and bake, and they enjoy those things – not I. I’m blessed to have a wonderful husband who loves to do both of those things, and he does them well. I’m working on my confidence in the kitchen, but it’s a slow process 🙂 Because of my lack of enthusiasm in the kitchen, I don’t take pride in the room. Today, I’m going to do what I can to make my kitchen at least a room I don’t dread walking into 🙂
DECLUTTER: The kitchen and dining room table are the family dumping grounds, so today the “stuff” will disappear 😀
CLEAN: I’ll start with an initial wipe over the entire kitchen so that all surfaces are clean. This includes sink and floor.
That’s my task list for today. I’m feeling a bit under the weather (suspecting a head cold) due to the rapid fluctuation in temperatures throughout the day. So I have less energy than I usually do.
There`s a new urgency in my efforts to become the me I want to be. Today`s ADHD diagnosis is the fire under my but that made me jump up and want to do something. So today marks the beginning of Project: Me. This will encompass weight, organization, cooking, parenting and housework. Stick around, this could be interesting… 🙂
- STEP 1: Declutter
- STEP 2: Clean
- STEP 3: begin a workout routine
- STEP 4: Set a morning Clean Routine
- STEP 5: Organize EVERYTHING
I got back from my first appointment with my psychiatrist. Turns out I exhibit all the classic signs of ADHD. If you’re keeping track, that’s 3 for 3 family members that I’ve pre-diagnosed before a psychiatrist did 🙂 Thank you Dr. Russel Barkley! Since my biological history is rather vague, this is most likely a result of my Shaken Baby Syndrome, which also caused my legal blindness. Fun times 😦 It sucks, but I`m choosing to stay positive through this process. My entire life, I`ve felt like a failure, and you`ve seen it in my many attempts in my domestic duties and other projects that I start and don`t complete. Now, there`s a reason. I`m not lazy or useless – I have a disorder that`s manageable. Yes, I do plan to try the medication, because I have people depending on me to be organized and scheduled and on the ball. It`ll definitely be interesting to see how this unfolds 🙂
Welcome to another WW. Today is a stay at 162lbs. This actually surprised me, as I’ve been chowin’ down on junk food this week. I want to enjoy the summer with my kiddos though, so 162 isn’t gonna cut it for me 🙂
