As you may or may not know, I birthed 8 children, 5 of whom survived to have families of their own. It is a challenge to keep the household running smoothly with constant pregnancies, births, illnesses etc. I have found the following schedule very useful in keeping on top of all my chores and duties.
Monday - laundry
Tuesday - ironing and mending
Wednesday and Saturday - baking
Thursday and Saturday - thorough cleaning
Daily tidying of kitchen and parlor
Remember, as a stay-at-home mother, your responsibilities are to your husband and children. Be sure you are preparing three meals a day. Your husband needs his strength while out in the workforce providing for the family. You shouldn't be wasting your days on these social-things; Facebook, Twitter? What are those, anyway? You have enough to fill your days with other than looking at pictures of other people's children and reading articles on things like "women's rights" and "equality in the workplace". Your workplace is your home and that is where your attention should be focused.
If you are constantly shifting your attention to other things, how will you have time to make the family garments and seasonally preserve fruits, vegetables and meat? I know you say you go to the "grocery store" to get your essentials, but why waste money on that when you can do it all from home? There is no need for you to leave the house unless you are going to church. As the woman of the home, you have the responsibility of the garden, livestock and poultry. I can't believe your "city ordinance" doesn't allow you to keep chickens or cattle. How do they expect a family to survive? You can't be expected to eat "take out" or make a trip into town each day for dinner supplies!
You just remember where your loyalties lie. Going out with the "girls", shopping, sunbathing at the beach and other such frivolities are not in the best interest of your family. Keep your house clean, the laundry washed and ironed and the meals prepared for your husband. Those are the most important things you should be filling your days with.
I must sign off now. I love you, my dear, and watch over you ever day.
Great, great, great Grandmother Elizabeth
