    I’m just now getting into yoga, and I signed up for a free month of online classes from My Yoga Works. It has tons of videos, and different skill levels. I really like it so far!

    I’m in the same boat, ladies! However, I’ve been on steroids off and on for 4 years for my autoimmune diseases, and continously for almost a year and a half. It sucks!

    Using finger paints to make a hand and foot print of my kiddos on a blank sheet of paper is definitely a fave.

    Hello ladies, I’m a newbie here. I have several autoimmune diseases myself. I do not have a blog yet, however many friends have suggested I start one, because of my “hilarious and sarcastic” recounts of my hectic life, with multiple chronic illnesses and multiple children(4 total), hahaha, on my FB page. I guess people get a good laugh out of my daily struggles, and I’m glad. That’s what I aim for, life is too short and hard to be serious all the time. Anyway, it’s nice to “meet” you ladies. I will be following some of your blogs, and maybe, since I recently quit my 60+hour a week job to become a SAHM, I’ll have time to finally start one myself. Look forward to talking to the other autoimmune disease warrior moms!

  • in reply to: Cleaning time #32869

    I’m feeling the same as you ladies. I just recently became a stay at home mom, before I was working 60+hours a week, with 4 kids, 17 (my stepson), 10yo son, 5yo daughter, and 2yo son. They also have alot of extracurriculars, and we were on the go 24/7 so I felt like I was never home to get any cleaning done. Now that I’m home all the time, I try to get alot of cleaning and household chores done, but with my 5yo and 2yo here all day, and me just recently being home all day, they’re on my heels 24/7. I don’t mind it that much, but I can’t get anything done. My husband works 6 12-14 hour days a week, so when he does get home he’s exhausted, and they would rather ask or have me do everything for them anyway haha. Plus, I’ve got several autoimmune diseases, and other chronic illnesses, so I’m wore 110% out by the time they go to bed, if I’m not way before then. Some days I just don’t even bother though, and we just play, cuddle, watch movies, etc. It seriously stresses me out to have the house a wreck, but I can clean for hours and they’ll have it looking like a bomb went off in 10 mins anyway. So I’ve been trying to have more of a why stress about what you can’t change attitude, and realize the house won’t always be a wreck. They’ll be grown before you know it, and you’ll have plenty of time to clean, when you aren’t playing games, dolls, cars, building blanket forts,wiping little faces and butts, and you’ll probably miss the time you had to do all that AND have a messy house.

  • in reply to: How to deal with teenage behavior? #32867

    Same, my teenager, 17 years old, is my stepson. Although, my husband and I have been together 10 years, and his mother barely has anything to do with him, he doesn’t really see me as a parent. I’ve never claimed to be his mom, even though I love him like one of my own, but he has no respect for me. Also, I’m a little stricter than his father and grandmother, my mother in law who recently passed away, who mostly raised him while his dad worked out of town 6 days a week, and his mom wasn’t really in the picture, when he was younger. I’m a fun mom, my kids get to participate in a lot of extracurriculars, and fun family time, much more than I could have dreamed of when I was their age, but still there are rules and expectations of their behavior. Nothing crazy or dramatic,and I fully believe in letting kids enjoy their childhood, but with rules and boundaries. He knows none😕

  • in reply to: How to deal with teenage behavior? #34812

    I hear ya sister, I have a 2 yo son, who is the most wild of my 4, a 5yo drama queen daughter, and a 10yo son on top of the aforementioned 17yo stepson🤦

    Hi Eliazar, I’m not sure I understand what you mean.

  • in reply to: What do you do for “me time”? #32866

    If I get the chance, with 4 kids, age 17,10,5, and 2, and just recently becoming a stay at home mom, with a husband that works 6 12-14 hour days, and mutliple chronic illnesses, so multiple doctors appointments, plus multiple extracurriculars my kids are involved in, I work on my side business. I make crafts, lamps, decor items, etc from empty liquor and wine bottles from my previous workplace. Also, I coupon. So really I’m technically working ALL the time, but with this many kids, our amount of bills, and my medical costs, I enjoy finding any and every way to save and make money for our family, so we don’t have to scrimp, scrape, and barely get by every week😊
