I can't believe how long it has been since I wrote a post for this blog. I have noticed that I have gained followers during my hiatus and I think that is awesome. I love that people think I have interesting things to say.
Our little blended family here in Oklahoma has really become my joy. I can't believe how much I enjoy taking care of the house and the kids. The ticket system works so well. If you need something to help your children start doing chores and giving rewards you should head over to Executive Homemaker to download and print it out. If you have publisher you can download it and customize it to meet your needs. We are using it with preschool kids through teenagers so BELIEVE me it works. Follow through is important and I am not always the best with that but I am really trying hard, and the kids are giving me some slack.
I am letting go of my perfectionism one little chore at a time. One of the keys to the system is not expecting them to be perfect. They are working hard and that is all that really matters. I am so proud of all of them.
Chris is traveling so much. He had an unplanned trip to New York this week, and next week he will be going back and probably to visit some other plants so he will be traveling all week. I am glad I have a family to be with while he is gone. I miss him so and I know he misses us. It is difficult, but I think it would more difficult for both of us if I wasn't here. He would be worried about me being alone and I would be sad that I was alone all the time.
One last thing...I even got a new follower on my other blog! I am excited about that. I need to post over there it has been awhile. I need inspiration.
New post tomorrow...it is our anniversary...another year gone by!
