Been slacking lately. Letting life take over I guess. When I decided to start this blog I had great enthusiasm and high hopes for it, but it has been hard to post daily like I intended in the beginning and have found that having a blog is a lot harder than I thought.Life has just kind of taken over with the homeschooling, soccer starting, and since I’m working at home now trying to manage my time has become a challenge.
Keep trying to remind myself not to get too stressed out and let all theses things wear me out. But last week or two I have let it get to me and just wanted to crawl under a rock and hide for awhile.
Of course I couldn’t fit there so the couch became my haven while my three year old MJ hopped on and off in-between playing, watching TV and torturing her sissy with millions of questions.
Homeschooling can still be done from the couch when you have to. After a day of that though you find that it is much easier to get stuff done in a much orderly manner off the couch. My living room turned into a sea of little people and everything else in the toy box.
Today is the start of a better week. It’s not that time of the month anymore so my brain is back to functioning and my lower half is not screaming at me anymore.
Now I just have to work on time management and prepare for soccer starting which will mean two evening practices and long Saturdays.
I also decided to join a homeschool group this year and that will be on Fridays from 1-3:30. I’m hoping to give JEM more opportunities to make friends and work on group projects.
The homeschool group we are joining is called the Harbor and was started by a lady who attends and helps out at the YMCA homeschool gym and swim program the kids go to and I help with. She started it like 3 or 4 years ago and I just never tried to fit it into our schedule.
With soccer two evenings a week, having gym and swim on Wednesdays and now the Harbor on Fridays, makes the week filled with activities, and I’m worried I will get off track or fall over from it all.
If I manage my time right I think it will work. Plus I just need to remember that missing one here and there will not be the end of the world. I tend to think if we sign up for something that I have to make it to everything and that idea has kept us from doing things that would be great for JEM and MJ.
Lets pray for a busy, organized, and fun week of adventures.
