I am a full time 'operator of the world,' more specifically my family's world. We own a company that my husband operates from our home office (separate from the house,) and I run our large property, family, guest house, and many, many events we host in our home. We moved into this large property 6 months ago and I am still getting a handle on how to manage it all. I have cleaners every week, and a landscaper, but it's still kind of like operating a bed and breakfast with the amount of activity every day, and entertaining. (For instance we have had big events the last 3 weekends, with one Easter event for 60 people, soccer party for 40, and 15 year old birthday party with 20.) Where do I put the big things like, 'cook meals,' 'laundry,' clean house?' These are things I have to do every day in some capacity to keep things moving, but then also all the other moving parts of kids, company, and other parts of life. I have always struggled with realistically planning enough time in the day to get all of those things done, and do next actions, which need doing too, but at the expense of dinner, which 2 teenage boys and a hard working husband need every day. I'm not June Cleaver, but I do take pride in my work as our homemaker and want to run things like a business would so we have time and energy to hang out with the boys, play a game of pool in the evenings, and have friends over at the drop of the hat with food and drinks ready to go. I'd appreciate any help with knowing do I put 'cook dinner' on my calendar each day with a time, along with other household jobs? When things go awry, and we end up ordering pizza it makes me feel bad, so I've hesitated doing it. Thanks for any advise in the wild world of homemaking.
