I then sneak off to the laundrmat and put them all in the industrial sized dryer pay $6 and read a magazine for 30mins. I then fold it straight out of the dryer. I get it all done, have some me time and it takes a bit of the stress out of my week.
    Hope you find what works for you!
    Oh my gawd...pure genius!! Laundromat here I come...really, I am going to do that.

    Love the laundromat idea, I have contemplated doing this in the past but you have just given me permission - Thank you.

    For communication - If you have something that you need to talk to your partner about/ whinge about, don't just dump it on your partner as soon as they walk in the door - no one wants to face that when they walk in the door. It is much nicer to decompress and then make time to talk when you are both more receptive.

    At the end of the day, you have to acknowledge that there are not enough hours in the day for all the 'stuff', for your family life, your friends life, your work life, your online life, your susie homemaker life so learn the things that matter (hint:relationships and time with the people that matter need to be pretty high on this list) and learn to say no, out-source where you can, and for the rest of it, just do what works for you and not what you think other people think you should be doing.

    i loved all that was written thank you

    Casio yes i feel somehow wrong as a person admitting i am an introvert and like alot of quiet time at home. I dont like alot of time geting exhausted on outings and socialisinga nd all the stuff others call ' having a life'.
    maybe if i had nothering else in my life but for many women all areas they try to do i think is just way too much for good health and happiness.

    lose weight be fit work be a good mum and partner socialise tidy clean declutter etc etc etc shop cook wash sort solve
