There are a number of things that I need to do around the house and in the yard. The question is, do I skip working out to get them done? At this point in time, I am not willing to do that. For those of you new to this site.... I just recently had a baby and giving up a workout to do house and yard work is just not an option! Don't get me wrong I try to keep up on the little stuff like vacuuming, dusting, wiping counters etc.... but what I need is a whole day to really get down and dirty.
Before I had my baby I used think that being a stay at home mom was a piece of cake. I thought how hard could it be? I now know that being a stay at home mom is not easy and have the utmost respect for all you moms out there that are fortunate enough to be a stay at home moms. I myself will not be a stay at home mom. I am however lucky enough to have the summer off, so for now I will consider myself a stay at home mom until I have to go back to work. Here are thirteen things around the house and yard that I desperately need to do or at least call someone to help me with. I thought I would never need someone to help me either... boy am I learning allot about being a mother and all the little details that need to be taken care of that used to seem easy but now are difficult to do with a new baby!

2. Wash windows and window ledges.
