I am very interested in the idea that the value I provide is the value I receive. I feel like I have two jobs – work and home. At work I give it my very best. At home I have curtailed my efforts at maintaining the home. I have hired a housecleaning service and I have invited my husband and kids to participate in helping out with the housework. I feel like I can do much more, in fact I could clean and cook till midnight but I choose not to. I have elected to do less driving kids to activities. I make simpler meals. I do not pick up after the kids (as much). I could really notch things up. I could really bake more, sign kids up for activities more, and clean more. I wonder if I am ultimately selling my self short? Or am I just being smart and that is value in and of itself.
