For the past year, I’ve not been well. Many days, running the house was accomplished from my bedroom, including managing the cooking and cleaning. Something I realized during my time on bedrest and the 6 weeks we spent in NICU after I gave birth to Mercy, is that cooking and cleaning systems are a must.
My homemaking runs on systems. They are what keep from me from going insane on a daily basis. You see, without systems, a mama spends precious time and energy making menial decisions all day long. For instance, what do I make for lunch? I could try to figure out a different lunch every single day OR I could have a system in place that makes lunch a no-brainer like my Soup, Salad, Sandwich Method (more on that in a moment!).
