WFMW: How A Homekeeper Notebook Works

by The Queen Mommy

wfmwbannerKRISTEN Last week, I posted about having A Homekeeper Notebook, and then due to the wonders of technology, lost the post. It has been reposted… This week, I can write about the way a home notebook is set up and practically used.

You know the things that are important to your life. You are aware of the things you need to stay on top of and keep track of, and when and how you actually lose track of those things. This is why A Homekeeper Notebook (whether you work full time or not) can really be a valuable tool. If you are a wife & mom – you ARE a homekeeper regardless of the actual work you may do.

Do You Know About IGAD?

by The Queen Mommy

Making your home sing Mondays It’s a disease that affects thousands – even millions – and someone you know suffers from it. It affects people of all ages and walks of life. Men, women, and children are affected, and it can range from moderate to severe in its intensity. It’s called

I’ve Got All Day

disease… It’s the mindset that procrastinators deal with on a regular basis. Or rather, DON’T deal with… It gets people off-track, off-kilter, and off-their-rocker. I know I struggle with it. Do you?

Thought Full Thursday: Settling In… Gearing Up…

by The Queen Mommy

Since I began my Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) journey over a year ago, actually BECOMING Keeper at Home has been quite challenging for me.

First, I had to undergo a personal transformation that allowed me to understand more fully the value, the responsibility, the role that “Keeper at Home” entails. Having worked after the births of both of my girls, I was just a “working mommy” and learned to find satisfaction in what was necessary for us at the time.

Making Your Home Sing Monday: Juggling Act

by The Queen Mommy

I can SOOOO relate to this post at Moms The Word today!

I won’t admit how many times I’ve discovered a load of laundry in my washer – 2 or even 3 days after it’s been washed. UGH! It’s easy to forget that I started the load – my washer & dryer are in our dungeon basement, and I only go there to DO laundry. I need to find a way to post a reminder somewhere around my house so I can avoid that yukky sour smell!!! Read the rest of this entry »


Friday Faves: My Home Keeper Notebook

by The Queen Mommy

So are you an expert Notebooker? Are you new to the idea? Are you still trying to figure out why anybody would take the time to put a “Home Keeper Notebook” together? Just like any other organizational system, a Home Notebook is great for some and useless for others (although I tend to lean more for the “great” for just about anybody).

If you are spontaneous (like me) and like to keep things fresh, putting together your own Home Notebook can be fun (or challenging) and creative. And with the TONS of forms & templates available online already, if you don’t have time to create your own, a little research can set you up nicely!

Wow Wow Wednesday! Baking Bread

by The Queen Mommy

Here is a scrumptious banana bread recipe that I have to share with you. I only made half the recipe (2 loaves), and I will play with the ingredients a bit to reduce both the fat and the sugar, and when I create something successfully, I’ll post that version, too.

This sounds like a terrific Friendship Bread starter, so I’ve got a batch “brewing” and found some yummy recipes to play with at allrecipes.com, too. I’ll make the bread with my first batch, and then move into muffins, cakes, etc. Read the rest of this entry »
