BD and I do a great job of running an efficient home. With less than two weeks since our move, we’re still adjusting, but we have already set the wheels in motion for a successful partnership. The morning belongs to BD. He walks the dog, takes the Minnie to school and is our late guy at the office. My only job in the morning is to get out the door and on the train by 7am. Now this sounds like I have the pie gig, until the evening shift hits. I dash out of the office at 5pm sharp, pick up the Minnie at the aftercare, run to the grocery store for any necessary food items, get him settled in, walk the dog and get the Minnie cranking on homework before I cook dinner for the family. BD arrives and we sit to dinner – FAMILY FIRST - before he checks homework and we simmer down for the night. It sounds pretty smooth, but it can get hectic. With our routine in place we’re bringin’ home the bacon, frying it up in a pan and still feeling like we’re both the man.
I congratulate my single-parent friends. It is an exhausting undertaking to work outside the home and maintain a healthy home life. What ideas do you have for keeping a busy household functioning as a loving family?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
