Juggling. Balancing. Wearing many hats. If you are a woman, you know that none of these words exactly describe the myriad of things we do to fill all our roles. Multi-tasking, whether it is in at the moment or out of vogue, is essential.
I am a wife and mom that manages our home, homeschools our children and dabbles a little on the working-for-money side of things. Most days, the three areas are so mixed up that it’s hard to see where one ends and the other begins. That is why I chose a new term for this series: blending.
You see, when I put a banana, some greens, yogurt and ice cubes into my blender, a delicious concoction results. When I give it to one of my children, they can’t tell where the banana is or that kale is hidden among the sweet goodness. They only taste a delicious smoothie.
You might blend up different things in your personal blender, but HOME is the main ingredient. Of course, we must fit in the other essentials. Yet, they all blend together to make your family’s puree a one-of-a-kind treat.
I know that I still haven’t finished this series. I’ll get to it….maybe even during this 31 Days. Why 31 Days? Because, that is what the Nester decided. I’ve devoured the posts of over a thousand bloggers for the last few years. This year, I decided to be part of the action. Or to throw one more thing into my blender.
I’ll try to update this post with the most recent installments as I go along. What you just read was Day 1. See you back here tomorrow!
