Are you married to your housekeeping opposite? Do you get frustrated doing more than your “fair share’? Would you like to stress less and enjoy your family more?

Then you need to read The Busy Couple’s Guide to Sharing the Work and the Joy, by Kathy Peel.

What I liked about this book is the easy to read format. It’s a book you don’t need to read all at one time and there are even worksheets to help you out. What I loved most was the advice for men from Bill Peel. It’s always nice to hear the from the other side. When you read it make sure to have a highlighter. There is some great advice inside. The book includes topics such as, managing your time, home, meals and relationships. Also included are how to manage your finances and yourself. The author covers all aspects of your life. It seemed a little overwhelming when I first looked at the book, but once I started to read it, I found it very easy to follow.

In my home my husband is not working, so when I’m working all day and come home and still have to do the housework, it drives me up a wall. So I’m really looking forward to putting this advice to the test.

If you’re struggling with your home and what’s going on around you or even if you just want new ideas, pick up the latest copy of The Busy Couples Guide to Sharing the Work and the Joy.

I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
