Searching For Creativity


Posted on: May 16, 2008

Check out this blog post.  It goes along with something I’ve been wanting to talk about on here.  This book!

It has a list that made me feel a little better about where on earth all my time goes: The Family Manager’s duties.


Building Supervisor

Auto Maintenance Supervisor

Baby-sitter/Day-care Worker




Coach/Team Builder


Dean of Education

Entertainment Chairman

Fashion Coordinator

Filing Clerk

Fitness Trainer


Gift Coordinator

Health-Care Practitioner

Historian and Curator

Hotel Manager

Interior Designer



Manager of Food Services

Purchasing Agent




Short-order Clerk

Obviously you aren’t all these things all the time, but this is a pretty hefty list all the same!

Wow, what a list! When I was in high school and college, I wanted to have like ten different careers and be an expert on everything when I grew up (e.g., historian, journalist, librarian, nutritionist, seamstress, accountant, research assistant, textbook writer, documentary film maker, public administrator, and maybe a computer programmer if I had some extra time). Then it finally dawned on me: I don’t want to spend the rest of my life chasing master’s degrees and typing resumes; I should be a wife and mom! There’s no job with more variety than that.

Happy belated Mother’s Day to ya. :o)
