I had a stay-at-home mom for most of my childhood and adolescence. I don’t have any memories of our house being messy or the sink being full of dishes. I don’t really recall my mom doing laundry, yet my laundry was always washed and returned to my room after school each day. As a result, I waltzed into marriage with no clue what I was doing. I didn’t really know how to cook and I had no idea how to manage a household: cleaning, laundry, maintenance, tips and tricks, nothing. Now I will say that I was always a neat and tidy kid and teenager. I enjoyed keeping my room clean and I regularly rearranged the furniture in my room completely by myself…which could explain some of my current back issues. lol! But as far as logistics, methods, and skills, particularly in the kitchen–I had nothing.
