I guess the big difference is I know it's never a good idea to read into something without clarifying. That's why I asked why she edits. I don't see how removing a post content completely reduces her post count at all. In fact, doing the constant edit and post again makes it look suspicious. That's why I asked directly. I suppose I could have asked via PM, but that totally nullifies the point of ds. I am sure others wonder about the edits too and now it's out there.

Or maybe I should blame my post on my pregnancy? I wasn't asking to be snarky. I didn't see any reason to flower up a simple question with extra fluff. I also didn't expect to get jumped for wondering.

The edits break the flow of the thread and I wasn't sure if I was missing something. I started reading this thread to see what other people do during their at home time and the . Posts really stand out.

my iPhone is a trixie little hobbit that never really says what I mean!

Re: Happy Homemakers -- February 2013

Hi, I'm Heather. I was pursuing an attempt at doing contract software work when I got pregnant with DD, so I've been a house-spouse/SAHM since June 2011. Housework is NOT my strong suit, but I'm getting better! My current goal is trying to make some time at least once a week to work on personal software projects, otherwise I feel like my brain is going to turn to mush. My DD is 10.5 months old and all over the place! She just figured out walking last week, nothing is safe!!

Daily goals:
-- Make bed, sweep high traffic areas
-- vacuum livingroom rug
-- vacuum DD's room
-- wash dishes
-- wash diapers + load of something else
-- feed sheep, clean barn
-- feed chickens, gather eggs
-- Give dog his ear medicine
-- List items on eBay and DS
-- Zumba
-- dinner
-- after dinner kitchen cleanup
-- sweep and mop kitchen
-- wash bottles, pacis and teethers
-- fold and put away laundry

Re: Happy Homemakers -- February 2013

i edit because i don't want a huge long post taking up the entire screen to be there a million times. that's why i replace it with a "." and move on to the next. so that my post doesn't take up as much of the screen.

I'm contemplating getting Thai takeout and taking the night off, too. But not before scratching off a few more todos, out of necessity!

Bah. Why did I not update here as I worked today? now to try to remember what I did...

Rinsed, washed, dried diapers.
Washed dishes and ran dishwasher.
Made Valentine's dinner for dh (fried ravioli).
Delegated a lot of stuff to dh.

I'm still taking it easy with cramps and a migraine to boot.

oh yeah, I'm also working on a writing project. I used to write a lot before ds was born. Fiction just for fun. I participated in nanowrimo every year until he was born too. Anyway, I wrote two chapters for a new project today.
