How do they do it?

One of my biggest struggles since getting married is maintaining the household. I can't figure out how moms do it. I have no responsibilities in the home except keeping it together, and can't seem to get it right. But there are other women out there with all of the same responsibilities PLUS many children and a job and a social life. I can't figure out how they keep their house together.

I've gotten some good advice from some ladies in my life, and feel like once we're into our new apartment we can safely start developing a routine.

Erin sent me a link to a blog this week, where the woman made a resolution to use her Slow Cooker every day for a year. It's pretty cool. I've already made a recipe from her list, and have intentions to make another on Sunday, plus another on Monday! And guess what!! Her recipes are Gluten Free! It's like the perfect storm!! Check Stephanie out at: crockpot365.blogspot.com

In exploring her website, I found she has another website called Totally Together for tips and tricks on "how to streamline your household routines so you can have a (somewhat) tidy and tranquil home in just minutes a day." YES PLEASE. She's got links to A Beginner's Guide to a Clean and Organized Home, Meal Planning, The Daily 7 for a Highly Successful Household, and much more! I think anybody could find something helpful on her site! Check it out!!

She also has a book, but I'm having trouble finding it online. Could be useful!! If anybody can find it to buy, let me know!

Excuse me, do you know where the Ladies' Room is?
