Like many of you, I have my mom goals and working woman goals. I struggle for years figuring out if I want to leave my kids in the hands of a daycare worker or do I want to raise them up to they reach their school ages before I decided to adventure out back into the market place. So, I finally figured out what I wanted to do and that is working from home.
Today I want to do another snippet of my everyday life and share with you what my day looks like. I don’t live on a strict schedule instead I have a list some days or a general idea of what I need to accomplish that day and try my best to do them. If I don’t complete them, it’s not a big deal. I will write it on my new list I do every night and place it on top of my new list for the next day.
