Anyone else wonder how your parents did it?

When I go through my day to day life and try to keep the house clean, the kids happy, the laundry washed and food on the table... not to mention trying to keep the bills paid on time I often feel I am coming up SO short.  I have more bad days then good it seems and I find myself asking how did my mom do it?

When my mom was my age she seemed to have things so much more together than I do. I respect her more now than I EVER did then.  I just didn't appreciate what she did for us, and trust me it was a lot and mostly on her own.  She worked full time all of my life and still had the time to have dinner on the table and to scrub that house down every Saturday morning.  We had special treats as often as possible and she was ALWAYS there to help with school projects.  (She is still around to help with projects that come up, just for the record..lol) 

I am a SAHM and I can't seem to get ANYTHING done in a day.  HOW DID SHE DO IT???? 
Why can't I seem to get my act together? Every day I feel more and more called to home school the little Waffles yet every day I find I come up short in that area also.  Baby Waffle of course isn't much of a concern yet and Little Waffle is doing ok but I feel like we could be doing more.  I hope since I am basically done with classes and only have (yeah I said only have) my thesis left to do maybe starting in January I can be more organized.  That is my goal anyway.  
 I am currently reading a book about Managing your home which is all about scheduling.  As much as I like to think I am a unscheduled kind of a girl, I think to make my life as it currently is 'work' I am going to have to get with a program. 

Here's hoping!  Peace out!!!!!
