Life Has Been Kickin’ My Ass

Okay, so I guess it is time to pull my head out of my ass. This summer I have accomplished a lot of nothing. Well that is not completely true. I have read 32 books. I have managed to get behind in housework, laundry and self-maintenance. I don’t care what anyone says the crazy little hairs that seem to make and appearance after your 4oth birthday suck. What the hell! I shall now die with a pair of tweezers in my hand.

I have a ton of things to be really pissed off about. However, because I am trying to get over it and move on with my life I will only list my top 5.

1. I am not very good at not having extra money. Momma needs a spa day!

2. The kids need to go back to school and stop destroying my house. I AM NOT THE MAID!!!!

3. I should be in New You’re at Blogher 2012. Why am I not there? Please see number 1.

4. My laptop needs a new hard drive. It is going to cost $175.00 to repair it. Again, please see number 1.

5. Although I love cooking – if I hear , “mom I am hungry” one more time I am going to blow! I can’t buy food fast enough. I am now avoiding my local super market. It is embracing when the check out clerk asks you everyday, “what are you making tonight”.

Today, I crawled out of the hole that I been hiding in. I cleaned the house, did 6 loads of laundry and wrote this blog post. These task my not have been earth-shaking but hey….. give a girl a break. It is a start.

The Man And The Glass

“The Man” is my husband for better or worst. HE is very supportive and is my biggest cheerleader. There are times when makes me melt with the way he supports me and tells me, ” you go babe”. He thinks I can do anything which is a lot to live up to. He even listens to my crazy southern home remedies, such as: yesterday he had a sliver of glass in his finger and he couldn’t see it and he could only feel it if he hit his finger on something. I told him to wrap is finger in bacon fat and tape few hours. He looked at me like I was smoking crack, but he did it. I tried to explain that the fat and the salt in the bacon would pull the sliver of glass out of his finger. This is how I explained it to him, “My grandmother used this method to remove splinters and it worked every time. Take a very small piece of bacon fat and a band aid or piece of tape. Place the bacon fat on top of the splinter and cover with a band aid or tape. In the morning the splinter will have risen to the top and can be removed. (If the splinter is completely embedded under the skin you will need to put a small prick in the skin above the splinter with a clean needle before covering with the bacon fat.) Wash the area well once you’ve removed the splinter. This remedy never failed to remove even the toughest of splinters.

Guess what it worked about 3 hours later a very thin sliver of glass fail out of his finger.

Victory once more.

Buddha

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~Buddha

5 Time Saving Tips for Mompreneurs

Did you know that a new word has been added to the dictionary? The word is mompreneur, what is a mompreneur? Well according to http://www.wisegeek.com, “A mompreneur is a newly coined term for women who establish businesses at home or while transitioning from the workplace while also acting as the full time parent of their children. The mompreneur movement is one steadily growing in the US as mothers try to find ways to make money, express their creativity or business acumen, and also to parent their children. Precise figures are difficult to find regarding exactly how many mompreneurs make up the current business world, but there are some statistics regarding the growth of home-based businesses”.

Let’s face the fact as working mothers we all have too much on our plates and here the big secret we can’t get rid of any of the really important stuff. You know what I’m talking about… the kids, the husband, the dos, the job, the laundry, the housework, the homework, the clients, the deadlines, the bills, and LIFE. How many of you have read the books that tell to put yourself first? I have. The problem the books I have read they tell you to find your SELF WORTH and put yourself first. OK….. What about your children, husband and what about your job? I close the cover thinking, “what world do you live in?” Speaking of which, I just finished one of those books and in complete frustration and another $24.99 investment I have decided to write my own 5 top tips for the Entrepreneur Mom.

What make me an Entrepreneur Mom? I work full time for a full time non-profit organization, I owner Cooking in the Burbs and ShaunaEpting.com  and I am the mother of 2 very busy children. I do not have a maid, a nanny nor do my children attend childcare. After working in childcare for over 10 years I cannot bring myself to subject my children to herding of children for money. I am sorry if that statement offends anyone. So with that said I choose to further task my schedule by being a full-time working mother/homemaker, I think that is a contradiction in terms. Here are my top tips.
1. Prioritize, you may think you know what the means of this word is, but I really feel the need to provide a definition here: arrange according to priority. The kids must be picked up from school at a certain time, so you better be there. Unless you want CPS knocking on your door.Pick the meetings and the networking functions that will be most beneficial to your business to attend, do not try to go to everything you receive an invitation to because you will just burn yourself out.

2. Use a good calendar system- I love electronic calendars that sync with my outlook and blackberry. I enter everything in my outlook and then sync it daily, this is the first thing I do before I go to bed at night. Why, at night? Because I may have added something to my calendar during the day that I need to do the next day. I don’t know about you, but in my house with getting the kids up and out for school, the dog out and settled for the day and husband going on his way that last thing I have time to do at 6:30 am is sync my calendar. This leads to my bonus tip – Learn how to use your operating system. I use Outlook. I love Outlook and the task function has saved my life.
3. Do not touch a piece of paper more than necessary. Throw it away, log it in your outlook, file it in your filing system, or get rid of it. Paper is clutter and clutter makes you feel unorganized. When your fell unorganized you act unorganized. So short and sweet—- GET RID OF THE TRASH!!!
4. Keep a purse size notebook with you at all times. At night I bring it to bed with me and place on the night stand in case I get an idea or I forget to put something on my to-do list for the next days.
5. Ask for help when you need it. Ok I know what you’re thinking I am not going to get it so why ask? I still say ….. still ask. If you keep asking maybe you will get someone to step up and help you. If not you know what to add to you priority list as soon as money permits. Hire someone to HELP YOU!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The kids have been out of school for two weeks. With that said I am now counting down to the mos t wonderful time of the year. Today in target I saw the signs that indeed it is coming. THE FIRST DAY of school. In my would this is in fact the most wonder time of the year.

The first day of the school means that, the house will stay clean for more then 15 minutes. The first day of school mean that the house will be quite for more the 5 minutes. I will not hear the yelling, “mom make him stop!”

Don’t get me wrong I love my children. They make me laugh, cry and I am their biggest cheerleaders and believe me I pay a lot of money to be their cheerleader, football and cheer-leading is not cheap. But with all that is holy…. they need to go back to school.
