How did they do it??

Do you ever wonder how our mothers did it all? My mom had three daughters, we had at least one dog at all times, my parents owned their own business and us girls were always going somewhere. We had dinners as a family at the dining room table, went to church on Sundays, our clothes were washed,ironed and often put away for us (or at least put on the stairs for us to take up to our rooms). Each holiday our house was decked out with decorations ..be it halloween, Easter or Christmas...

In comparssion my dining room table holds a pile of clothes instead of home cooked meals. I can tell you the last time we ate at that table because it's only  happened once! It is rare for us to decorate for Christmas let alone any other season. We rarely make it to church. Iron? What the heck is an iron?

The difference must be the dogs....I have four dogs and a cat..yeah lets blame it on them!

Ahhhh the good ole days!

I often wonder how my mom did it as well. I don't have dogs so I blame facebook and the blog. Those are the things that keep me from being the domestic master that I could be.

I have no idea how Mom did it. Well, how Grandma did it. Mom went to work every day. Hey...I don't even know how I did it. It just happened!

I don't know but being a new mommy, I realize how unrealistic it is to expect myself to do it all. I do the best I can and let the rest be. Thankfully I have a husband who is very supportive. :-D
