ABC's of Motherhood


E is for "easy"


I'm convinced that I can make my own life more difficult than it needs to be.  I try to "do it all."  I make complicated meals, try to keep my house spotless, do lots of extras in my homeschooling.  I create the perfect life for myself. 

However, my family pays for it.  They have to live with a crabby wife and mom who snaps and growls her way through each day. 

Lately I've been making an effort to make my life a little more easy wherever I can.  I cook simply, I tidy the house several times a day--but I don't stress about it.  I do the basics with homeschooling, but I try to let my children learn some of the "extras" from real life. 

The result is a much more pleasant home.

What are some ways you make your life easy?
