The Stressed Mom was created to help teach and train other moms, younger moms, how to structure their lives for less stress. How to plan their days, and their meals. How to clean their house faster. I also want them to feel confident in their role as mom, wife, woman. My goal is to help them structure their lives so that they can reach their goals.
So who IS the Stressed Mom? As the mother of 4, and Nana to 8, soon-to-be 9, grandchildren, I have learned quite a bit about stressful motherhood. Through the years I’ve homeschooled, ran my own full-time businesses, raised 3 grandchildren for several years, and worked for corporate America.
I have learned that everyday life can be very stressful. I have also learned some systems, patterns and tips to make life run a little smoother, most days anyway.
As I was coming to the end of raising my children (does it ever REALLY end?), I have had a few stressful years, a mental breakdown in 2010, (you can read that story here), a marriage of 31 years ending abruptly and with no warning. I had to learn very quickly how to provide for myself and live on my own for the first time in my life.
After my divorce, I was blessed to “run in to” someone I had dated in high school (on Facebook, lol!) After meeting up again, and getting to know one another again, we got married and have been married for almost 4 years. My husband has been a true blessing to me and has helped me to heal, not only from my divorce, but also from leftover issues from my breakdown.
He has been a great addition to my family, my kids and grandkids love him! And he came with a teenage daughter, an adult son, and another granddaughter!
