The chapter covering Facet No. 3 is a short one entitled “Some are Almosters”.
What is an almoster?
Well Ms. Hoole describes an almoster as:
those who…”just don’t quite make it…Their intentions are good, and they almost make it. They spend lots of time and energy, but they don’t quite reach their goals, they don’t quite get the job done. Their houses are never quite clean, their ironing is never quite caught up, they are never quite ready, or quite on time. “
It does to me.
So often I feel like I’m a day late and a dollar short.
Fortunately Ms. Hoole says that there is hope for girls like us. She says that we are already “putting forth the time and energy” and all that we need is “some direction” to become “ideal homemakers”.
Here’s my direction for the week—finish off a tall list that I set aside for spring break and try out something that I’ve always considered something of a dirty word—-a schedule.
(As long as I’m giving up multi-tasking for awhile I may as well give scheduling a go.)
Any of you out there have any great schedules that work?
Or is there something else that gives you direction?
