Be careful what you take on!

Being at home means you are percieved as "not working".  This can get you into trouble if you also see yourself as just being an at home mom.  We all know very well that just being a mom means you are working your tail off and if you are at home you are also expected to cook, clean, run errands etc.  This can keep you on your toes and busy!  Now if you throw in an at home business you have doubled your trouble.  Now you must do all of the above plus fit in time to work.  Let others know you are at home and it gets even better.  You will soon be the room parent, the scout leader, the person everyone turns to when they need help and the soccer mom. 
At some point you will have to learn how to say "no". 
This isn't hard.  No one wants to be seen as selfish or unwilling to help out at school or anywhere else.  It is something you will have to learn to do though or you won't get anything done in any area. 
Personally, I have yet to learn how to say "no".. Let me know how you do it!
