about 6 days left before i start working on backing it. this week i've had to up my average hours from 2 a day to 4. 2 after the kids go to sleep and then 2 more spaced out during the day. today for example, the kids were playing nicely outside and i was able to sit at the picnic table and work for a good solid hour. now i'm going to put the boy down for a nap, do a little housework and then work for another hour. is my housework suffering? yes, of course it is. when isn't it? i'm not big on housework. it's that thing that i do when i don't have any other choice. like when my husband doesn't have any clean underwear or the stack of dishes by the sink is starting to stink. or i have guests coming over.
