A Juggling Act

The role of a woman can never be clearly defined for we take on multi-faceted responsibilities because we have the ability to multi-task unlike the male species. No, I am not a feminist.

I am proud to be part of a generation of modern women who have choices and the freedom to make those choices.

Hence we are always part of a "circus" act. Juggling the various responsibilities and still quite often, come up tops!

Preparation and team work are keys to the act of juggling.

In order for me to function in a mentally positive state during the work week, hubby and I work as a team (80% of the time). He does everything associated with the laundry and general home maintainence like ironing, mopping and vacuuming, cleaning of the three toilets and bathrooms while I take care of the household shopping, preparing 20 meals in a week, cleaning the kitchen and gardening. Thank goodness, kid (s) are not part of the equation yet!

Here are 2 meals I have prepared for next week. Beef Cassrole and Beef Bolognaise...for dinner and lunch the next day! Yippee..that makes it 4 I only have 16 more meals to make!

not all true...

you don't do 90% of those things before breakfast!

you tell me that you wash our windows everyday and that you wake up earlier than me?

you tell me that you fold the clothes? please...

if you mow the lawn everyday, we won't have grass!
