CathyHave you ever met one of those women who seems to have it all together? Great mother, super cook, immaculate house, wonderful hostess, and perfectly organized, she’s the woman we all envy.

Unfortunately I’m not that woman. I strive to be but often fall short. I do excel in some areas but fall short in many others.

My best friend, however, is one of those ladies and I have learned lots from her. Other things, I have learned through trial and error, and age and experience.

This site chronicles my struggles to be a great homemaker and shares the things I have learned over the years.

I am open to suggestions, and guest posts too! And if there is anything you would like to read about that isn’t on the site, feel free to leave a comment or email me at claycath @gmail.com.

Personally, I’m a single, work at home mom from Virginia Beach, VA. I have 3 grown children, 2 who still live at home with me and I have a baby grand daughter, who I am helping to raise who also lives here. I also have 4 dogs, a dwarf rabbit, and 2 fire bellied Asian frogs. I also care for my elderly, disabled mother so as you can see, I’m quite frazzled!
