I have this need to get my house in order. Transitioning to being a SAHM has not been as easy as I thought it would.

See, I quit my job. We had decided long ago that as long as Jake’s job could support us, I’d stay home with the kid. I loved the concept and I couldn’t wait. Now that it is a reality, I fee guilty. I have a grand total of one friend who stays home. And she has three kids. And has been married for six years. She is a Mom. With a capital M. I feel like a kid playing house.

So I want to get my house in order. Get on top of everything and do my damnedest to keep it that way.

We’ll see how it goes.
