How to Find Happiness in Homemaking
Fascinating Womanhood by Helen Andelin

  1. Accept Drudgery. It's true that there are good parts to a job and there are bad parts to a job. I know that for myself, I will need to learn to accept the bad parts along with the good parts. Just like in marriage.
  2. Don't Become Crowded for Time. I can name a few things that eat up my time. Being online on my computer is my number 1 time eater. I wouldn't call it wasting, but it does eat up time that I could be spending cleaning or outside playing with my kids. Take a moment and think about what is eating your time. Is it a club that you are a part of? What about phone calls, Facebook, or even the TV or sewing?
  3. Go the Second Mile. Going the second mile, or beyond the call of duty, lifts the burden from work and makes it easy and enjoyable. Women who give just enough to get by never enjoy homemaking.
What can you do to make your time being a homemaker better?

Taking it easy today. I can't do too much around the house or outside of the house. If I do, then my sciatic nerve starts to really hurt and then I'm down for most of the day if not a couple of days. So it really limits me on housecleaning. I have to get use to seeing toys and dirty clothes on the floor. My abilities are limited to what and how much I can do in one day. I'm learning how to get things done. I enlist the help of my 7 year old a lot more. Plus, I'm trying to get all the baby things out and put away before it's time to get ready for homecoming, birthdays, and the holidays! I'm learning though. There is a small window of opportunity for me in the mornings after Ryan has been dropped off at school. So I get as much done during this time as possible. Being pregnant, this is when my energy level is the highest.

I'd love to hear how you got through your days when you were pregnant!
