Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu my dear Mamas
I hope you are all having an enjoyable weekend. I’ve intended to write this post for some time and asked on Instagram if you would be interested in reading it, to which several of you replied “Yes!”. And like one sister pointed out, the struggle of finding time to enjoy our time is an issue Mamas in general face so much needed!
Before I start, let me explain the reasons as to why I personally made some changes and why the weekend wasn’t working for me. See, I’d trained myself to see as the weekend as a break up of two things. The first day was the ‘I’m not lifting a finger at all’ and the second was ‘Oh my gosh, its time to get my house back in order’ day. Which meant I’d be deep cleaning all day, spending little time with my family: stressing myself out before the new week had even started. And then homeschool planning after all the cleaning and cooking wasn’t exactly what I looked forward to either, especially if I just realised that I didn’t have the supplies I need!
So, I made some changes. which have helped me regain that balance I was craving, Alhamdulillah, and I hope they help you too.
