Yhea It's my daily routine......... Going to the market, prepare food, cooked food, prepare the kids,cleaned the house, do the laundry, sit here in my desktop. What a tiredly day for a mom like me........ but did you ever wonder for every day, doing this same routine why we survive? Do we must have a inspiration so that we can coup up in a stress like this? What do you think? How about you moms out there what gives you inspiration doing your household work without so much stress?

I am very tired of the daily routine too. I work seven days a week and there is no time for other things, even myself. I work about 15 hours a day on and offline. I only get about 4-5 hours of sleep each day too and that bothers me also sometimes. there is always laundry, cooking and cleaning to do plus do the bills and you name it. Summer is coming up and I will have grass to cut also.

Yes. It is very tough. My husband and my daughter are my inspiration to do it and I need to help with our bills. It is also an inspiration because I get to stay home now and earn online.

You are certainly right Lyn. I feel so tiredof doing the same everyday but my kids and hub keep me moving because they are dependant on me. My hubby works terribly hard to keep my family happy and I share the internal part and that is household chores to keep moving.

Ah the monotony of everyday life. Yes I have to admit that 6 days out of 7 I groan when getting out of bed only because I know exactly what awaits me. A day of dirty nappies, bottles, tantrums and housework. My inspiration to keep going is all the other stuff... the smiles and cooing from my eight week old son. The laughter and tickles, funny faces and dancing, kisses and cuddles from my almost two year old. I can be so bored, so tired, and so simply over it, until one of them smiles and everything seems just that much brighter. Another thing I find helpful is time management, and particularly the book by Allison Mitchell "Time Management for Manic Mum's" The little poems in there are so hilarious and oh so relevant!

The realization of a repetitive life tends to inspire a lot of people to go out and do something different. Something crazy and random. Visit another country, participate in an event, try extreme sports, learn new languages, etc.. You're just going through a phase of the blues. It's happened to me before. You just need to find a little something that can slightly alter your days. What are you interested in? See if you can fit some of your interests into your daily routines. Possibly exercising, yoga, reading.. ?

Inspiration? Not so much, I just know that if I don't do it, no one will. If I don't work by butt off, rent will not get paid, my kids and myself will be homeless. If I don't do the dishes, we will have nothing to eat off of. If I don't clean the house, we will all get sick, if I don't do the laundry, we will stay sick. Not so much inspiration to me as a need for my children. So I guess in a way, they really are my inspiration. Same old thing just a different day.It's kind of hard not having anything to look forward to. What about you? What is your inspirations?

Yeah you are correct. In every country home mom used to do these type of work everyday. This is life or woman. You did not tell another item that is " to please husband ..." However, you can see the man who used to do business or job for earning but have some rest and no-work time in the house while women are not getting this scope. Of course some women who has home worker to do some household work have enough time than other home mom but they are not much.

I have to admit, I don't vacuum every day or do laundry everyday.. I do though do things like get my son ready for his activities and cook and do some cleaning... I don't think though there are enough hours in a day to do everything.. So a little each day will help you not be so tired, just my oppion.. Let me remind you i do have a clean house with the help from my son helping me keep it clean and tidy, When he makes a mess I have him clean it himself being he's old enough to do so...

You are right, I sometimes also feel fed up with my daily routine. But as the weekends approach....it changes....the daily routine takes a change on Saturday and Sunday. I can understand that you being a woman need to lots and lots of house hold and domestic work without a break. Please do not think too much about it......try to enjoy your routine and be positive..........you will overcome your stress.

Now I'm just the opposite - I love routine and the last year have been upset because so many other people keep interrupting my 'routine'. I am much much more productive when I can be on a routine - but then I'm always going in 20 directions at one time routine or not :)

Well my hubby and kids are my inspiration I love do it over and over again. I have to admit that it hard to take care of them or to be a mother but all I'm thinks that why I still do it over and over again is that I love them all and I want to serve them. I learn to love what I do that is my duties as a mother. Your routine are same as mine all that is differ is I have small business to look for.

My inspiration is the fact that if someone shows up the house is clean and they commend me for having such a clean house. It's hard to keep it up with 5 children and 2 adults. It's also the satisfaction of having a clean area for my children to play in. Sometimes I do get tired of doing the same thing day in and day out. There are days where I will slack off and not get EVERYthing done but I try my best to do something each day. With it being Spring now I have to do my deep cleaning routine and get things out to the curb for the trash haul. It frees up the clutter and makes it easier to know what to keep and what to throw away. In this process I clean out one room of EVERYthing and then put back what I am keeping. It's a long process but in the end it pays off. I do this 2 times a year.

It's really tiring to be doing the same thing everyday. Being a Mom is really a tough job. I think I was able to accomplish that everyday for the love of my family. I love my husband and I like to give him the best I can everyday. I gives me pleasure to see my child growing as I like her to be, healthy, active and intelligent. The key is if you like what you do and if you love doing something, you consider it not as a work anymore, but instead a source of joy and satisfaction.

My family are what makes me want to get up and repeat the same boring chores everyday, I do it for them but for myself also because I enjoy seeing a clean tidy house. If I find things getting too mundane or boring I get the kids ready for going out and we go out for lunch or to the park anything to break things up a little not every day or I would get nothing done but a few times a week just something different enjoy spending time with them away from the house where even they can get bored

Yes I guess when doing things every day seems to be very tiring and stressful every now and then. But I guess just be happy that you are doing something rather than doing nothing at all. What would make you move to do those things? Try the very basic word "Love".... Do everything you do because you love to do it to your loved ones. I guess that would make you moved from being stressed and tired everyday. So be happy and grateful you are given the chance to be a mother of your children and a wife to you husband if your married. That would give meaning to what you're doing right?

Perhaps you are getting tired of your daily routine.becuase you feel your wory at home is repeat and simple,no less inspiration and creativity.But you should be happy when you are watching your children and husband have dinner.They are health,you are great.That's your achievement. So I think you wiil enjoy your same routine though they are general things. Hope you have good mind.

you really would get tired of something when you do it in cycles...try to think of it like Mylot,just enjoy what you do and there will be reward for doing it...try to modify you schedule so as not to make it boring for you and also include some leisure time for relaxation...

I understood that the task from the woman was heavy in a day - the day and tired to wash, cleaned the house etc., underwent all that happily.
