How Did She Do It

How did my mom do it. How did she keep our house running so smoothly when I was a kid. Seriously our house was so clean and orderly. She cooked everyday except Sunday when we would eat lunch out and then have popcorn for dinner. She had beautiful flower beds and a nice yard. Our laundry wasn't just done but folded and put away. And she still had time to shuffle us around everywhere and have fun with us. How in the heck did she do it.

I feel like I'm running all the time and nothing is really getting done. Between work, the photography business, the kidlet, the yard, the housework, the remodel, etc it's chaos. Everything is just half done. The dishes are done but the floor is a mess. Or the laundry is done but not put away. Or the yard is mowed but the flower beds look like Jurassic park. I just can't seem to keep up with it all.

Advice? Any ideas? Does anyone know how to add hours to the day?

You probably don't remember (maybe you do) being 2 and what the house looked like then. It is easier to get things done when you can leave your sweet innocent child for a few minutes. Don't be so hard on yourself. I have lots of dishes lying around too! ;0) and laundry, and dirty cloth diapers, and toys, and right now--three sick kids! Cleanliness is overrated! Well, it's not, but it's just going to have to wait for awhile at my house.
