So, here I am. A stay-at-home mom. And it’s the end of Day 2. And…I’m bored. And slightly unmotivated, which is an oxymoron or ironic or something.

That’s not to say that I’ve accomplished all the things I put on my “when I’m staying home” list. Or even cleaned the kitchen floor or put away the laundry.

Actually, the biggest thing I’ve managed to do is unpack our 47 bags from vacation and balanced the checkbook {scary}. (And wash a bunch of laundry and cook two whole meals. If you’re counting. And yeah, I kind of am.)

I know it will take time. That I’ll get into a groove and settle into a schedule and find my way. And all that. I know.

But what I don’t know is how MUCH time it will take. Or just HOW to get from here to there.

For those of you who stay home, will you tell me how you organize yourself? Your schedule, your to-do list, your priorities? What gives your day purpose and structure and value? And how do you keep yourself from blowing hours online or taking a nap when your kids take naps?

How do you do it?
