All in the Day and the Life of a "Domestic Engineer"

Yep... That's me. Sounds pretty good huh! I came up with my new title when I was continually filling out paper work at the Doctor's Office and Hospital! I got tired of putting "nothing" or "mother" or "housewife" or "house-rat" (yeah I used that once) or "retired" or "wife" or "Grandma " ...and the list could go on as life went on.. As I look back on my life at all the titles I've had, most of them have been great! Especially the "Mom" and "Grandma" one. I'm so grateful I was able to be a stay home Mom and enjoy every crazy moment of my kids life's.. In this day and age Mom's aren't staying home with their little ones for various reasons. Well, now that all my kids are raised and I'm a grandma, I still use the excuse that I'm a mom and grandma for staying home...LOL.. Actually some may think I'm lazy and wonder what on earth I could possibly do every day to stay busy. Today I decided to take a few pictures of what my day entailed . It's really no different day to day just a different project, list, visit, or a new "honey do list"!.... Yes, I do things for my honey since he's the one that works. I've decided that each day is too short and passes by way too quickly! I once heard this little thought..... When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift.. Thrown away! Life is not a race. We need to take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over. "Life may not always be the party we hoped for....but while we are here we might as well dance!". My life seems to have a way of accelerating as I get older. My days are too short, and my list of to do's and promises gets longer and longer. I'm learning to enjoy each day and if the list is left undone at the end of the day it's OK............ Because I have enjoyed the day!

Lookie Lookie who is a little blogger now. I love the lists upon lists of things to do. That is one thing I remember as a kid, Mom never stood still she would just go and go, trying to make everyone happy and make them feel loved. Somethings never change. :)
