My biggest challenge is keeping the house clean. I just can't seem to get it together.

My biggest challenge is time. There never seems to be enough time in the day to get everything done. If days were 10 hours longer maybe I'd have a fighting chance.

I can be reached at the URL attached to my name. THANKS!!!

As a mom of eight, two of them being stepdaughters, my challenge is having enough of me to go around (and getting enough sleep because there's not).

My biggest challenge is dinner time. I work an hour away and DH works 12 hr overnights, so getting a quick healthy dinner on the table isn't always easy.

My biggest challenge - to keep the dust down in a house w/ a long haired dog, wood floors, and living in one of the world's wind-surfing capitals...wind wind wind. Ugh! :)

Tracy said...

Hmmm.... keeping up with the house AND getting to do what I like at the same time.

My biggest challenge is getting the clutter out and learning not to bring more in!

Bunny Trails said...

My biggest challenge is maintaining any sense of balance. Between homeschool, newsletter editing, other commitments, blogging, scrapping, and keeping the home, there's always something out of whack! And we have an upcoming move. :D

Katy said...

i would love these books! how awesome! My biggest challenge is trying to get the rest of my family to do their part...if everyone does a little...it makes my job not quite so big...ya know? Like, putting their own clothes in the hamper or putting the toilet paper on the holder!

Lesha said...

My biggest challenge is managing the house. Parenting and work keeps me very busy. :o

My biggest obstacle is keeping myself from doing "things" when my hubby is home and finding time to still answer the Lord's call to me.

beckster said...

My biggest challenge is procrastination and motivation. Some days it is easy to look at the list of stuff to do and breeze through it, other times I just want to ignore the list!
Great giveaway - thank you!

Karen said...

I don't know if I can think of just one major challenge. I guess I would have to say, "time management." Like, if I weren't spending my time blogging, I might get something done.

welcome back!

Shelly said...

My biggest challenge is accepting that I do not have time to get it all done

Mari said...

Where do I start?! I think my biggest challenge is keeping upbeat when I feel like screaming! Parenthood is so frustrating, yet very rewarding!!

My biggest challenge is finding balance between working full time, raising 3 kids, keeping house, and keeping hubby habby.

CanCan said...

I'd say finding time to sleep. My baby has been waking up REALLY early, and my older child has difficulty GOING to sleep at night!

~Tami said...

Laundry! So many times we are rushing to get a load in the night before those clothes are needed!

Audra Marie said...

These would be so good to read right about n ow. My biggest struggle is having the kids put their things away where they belong.

My biggest challenge is keeping on top of the laundry, the cleaning and the cooking, making sure everyone is tended to (physically and emotionally) and not feeling like a failure at the end of the day because I didn't get it all done.

Mark & Abbie's Blog (mostly Abbie's) said...

My biggest challenge has got to be juggling time management with my four children who are five and under. I want to do it all with them AND maintain my home...not happening so far...but I keep trying!

Thank you for the giveaway, it's great! I would love to win. nw_wife(at)hotmail(dot)com

Biggest challenge- cleaning showers!

Suzie G. said...

My biggest challenge is getting everyone to do their part. Mostly my fiance who feels like he deserves a gold medal when he gets the baby to calm down. Honey... I do that 10 times a day while you're at work. I try to get most of the housework done since I'm home all day, but I have a hard time not feeling guilty for getting everything done. I know if I don't do it though, nobody will and the mess will remain. I need to find balance.

Audrey said...

My biggest challenge is to always have clean towels for showering. Towels seem to get lost in my kids' rooms.

Ginny said...

My biggest challenge is that my husband doesn't get a steady paycheck. It is hard to budget & get everything the kids need when we never know when his paycheck will come.

As a single mom, sometimes you find yourself having to be in two places at one time! There's a lot of scheduling gymnastics involved when this happens!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jinxy & Me said...

My biggest challenge is definitely finding enough time in the day to do everything I need/want to. Thanks for the giveaway!

Megret said...

I'd LOVE to read these! I love her books.

My greatest challenge is actually getting AHEAD every day. I can barely put things back like they started....getting new things done rarely happens! It can be overwhelming. (But I wouldn't trade my "job" for the world!)

Thanks!
