Work At Home, Work At Store, Work At Home

I've come to realize that my house may never get cleaned. I don't see how people with full-time jobs can clean their house and work. Of course, I've never been able to work even part-time and keep my house cleaned. I think it has to do with being just a little overwhelmed. I tried to break it down and just do one thing each day, but that didn't quite work either. Well, instead of beating myself up over it, I think what I'll try to go back to what has worked for me before. Flylady says the best way to get a grip on your home is to start with your kitchen sink and the rest will fall in place. Tonight before I go to bed, I will try to get my dishes washed and put away and get my sink cleaned.

Yesterday I posted 3 articles for PayPerPost, 1 for Smorty and wrote an article for Associated Content. So far today I've posted 2 articles. One for Smorty and one for PayPerPost and if I don't get a case of writer's block, I'm going to try to write an article for ehow. I'm up to 75 cents, but like I said before, I haven't even tried to market views for my articles yet. You can sign up for any of these by clicking on the button on my sidebar.

This afternoon I have to work at the store. I'm really not looking forward to working until 9, but I'm not complaining. It's a job and we definitely need some money coming in. Our gas got turned off yesterday. That was a bill I totally forgot about, but the good news is that we only need about $50 and will be able to get it turned back on. The other good news is that God doesn't give you more than you can bear and I actually lived without gas for over a year not knowing when I would be able to have it turned on. It's just a little inconvenient, but nothing we can't bear for a couple of days.

That just reminded me how fun washing dishes will be tonight...ugh. That gives me another idea though. Maybe I'll write an article on how to survive without a water heater! And when my gas does get turned back on I will definitely thank God for reminding me to be thankful for the things I have started to take for granted.

If you've left me a comment, I'll be picking at site Sunday for the featured blog of the week. If you haven't left a comment, leave one if you'd like to have your blog considered. Well, I'm off to write some more!

Hi Annette,

I got your comment on my blog, and thought I would visit yours and reply while I'm here. Nice blog, by the way!

I'm not doing PayPerPost any more, I got tired of the ever-changing rules and lack of decent ops. The only paid blogging I do now is for PayU2Blog. My other work is all freelance web writing. It's kind of catch as catch can, and sometimes the money is better than others. But I love it! I've also done some work for eHow.

Oh Annette, living without hot water would be the ultimate in sacrifice for me. I would do without heat in my house before i could live without hot water.......I had a cold bath once.......NEVER again, I will just stink first. haha

I don't know anything about the paying portion of blogger, it is all greek to me.
