Home Manager, not Maid

*snort* the Lady is suggesting i be a little more...forceful on the 'help' issue with my family.  I love that now that i recognize Her, and hear Her whispers, she is really wanting me to take care of ME too, and cleaning up after everyone is not allowing me to have much focus on my own interests.  She is gently reminding me i am the Home Manager, not the maid or a servant at their beck and call and i need to be more vocal about my role.

The cooking and basic cleaning/wiping down isn't the issue.  Its the physical labor of raking the livingroom a couple times a day to even be in a place where i CAN sweep/vaccum/dust the livingroom.  Its the loading/unloading of the dishwasher in the kitchen...the kids are perfectly capable, and of course the putting away of their own laundry.  She wants me freed up so i can do MY job of basic sanitation, budgeting, and Devotion.
