Stay At Home/Mompreneur Vent

I am taking a little breather and just wanted to type a bit to have a little vent. By no means am I angry.....just wanna scream really loud "AAAAAHHHHHHHH"!!!!!! 

As many of you know I run an online herbal business selling things from herbs by the ounce, tinctures, loose teas, incense, even teach a few classes and give readings. I LOVE my biz, its my passion for sure but the "behind the scenes" look on this I truly find humorous and do not think people truly appreciate nor realize what fully consists in my everyday balance of work/life. 

Yes I am a full "old fashioned type" house wife I guess you can say. I cook, do the dishes, do laundry, vacuum, make the bed, feed the dog/cat, and tend to my energetic 19 month old daughter that is in the "No mom i don't want a nap" stage. Of course there is also the weekly "maintenance's" of the house, dusting, cleaning the bathrooms, washing the floors, vacuuming the stairs, changing the sheets, paying the bills, etc......while the hubs does his thing and goes to work. (lucky bastard!)  Lol

So on top of all this I am a true born Capricorn so ALWAYS thinking of more ways to offer more on my site as well as "please the fans"  on Youtube and what used to be Stickam.com. I also have a new found love of sewing ever since receiving a sewing machine for Xmas from my parents. (SO AWESOME!)
OH and have been making sure to get my exercise in at least 4 times a week so that I can lose the 20lbs that was gained and seemed to not go away very easy for a while after Kahlan was born.

Sounds all totally great right?!?! Well yes at times I cant complain and say its not. It gives me the pleasure of raising our little girl and not having to pay the ridiculous amounts for daycare. BUT hardly EVER getting to leave the house except for the few times a month I go to the grocery store is a little toturous.... (Hubs takes my car most of the time since it gets WAY better gas mileage than his truck does so its the financially smart thing to do)..... So needless to say I get a little cabin fever and the times .

 There just never seems to be enough time in the day... and the days I attempt to are the days every tom, dick and hairy decides that they wanna call me and "catch up" or ask for help and/or ask a million questions.

Why not do it all after the hubs gets home? Why dont I stay up extra late?! Well..... fact is and to be honest.... the hubs gets home and we have family time, catch up and vent about our days, I cook and we eat dinner, give Baby bath, take our showers, clean up dinner, get baby in bed and then I wanna EFFIN relax, get a little R&R time and even catch up on a few emails since its the only other time I get to besides in the early morning. Then usually after a little bit get to bed hopefully before midnight so I can get up at 6am and do it all over again ;)

Like I said above I AM NOT NOT NOT complaining by anymeans.... just simply wanted to vent and share a little about my life and let a few of out there that wonder...how does she do it?! Does she ever go crazy? Oh your life is So perfect!! ... LOL UH NO I dont know anyones life that is perfect and needless to say there is a lot more but truly no sense in to getting even more in depth.... 

I guess as a real purpose I just truly hopes this helps shed a little light out there to the other SAHM's (Stay at Home Moms) that you are NOT alone and you totally ROCK for everything you do and even though it may seem to go unnoticed by others THIS CHICK gets you!!! And that this world would truly not survive without strong women like us!!!

Much Love !!! <3
