Just when I get back to blogging it is a bad week. Sorry guys!
I think I was so sick and then worked very hard to get ready for the show that I let down, so I have been kind of anxious and low this week. Very "in my head" thinking and contemplative about the normal crap - business, homeschool, money, kids, husband, life.
Business is mainly about marketing. Boring stuff unless you are into it.
Homeschool - Oh, I am struggling so badly with this. I am burnt out. At the beginning of the week, I had 1 full week of school to grade and then plan the next 6 weeks (and whole summer) while working 16 hours a day and having a show for 2 days!
Monday morning - I did not want to get out of bed. I did though, but literally just sat there. I finally got around to cleaning up our bathroom and bedroom and starting laundry. I told the kids we were not doing school that day.
Tuesday - It was worse! Everything was Mt. Everest. I cried. I got my office organized, worked on some orders, cooked dinner. No homeschool.
Wednesday (today) - Got up, dreading, but better. I sat down for coffee and said you know - there is no reason we have to finish all the books this year. It was a tough year and the fact that we ARE getting done with history, made it through 2 writing books each and on the 3rd, made it through 1 word study book and on the 2nd, made it through 80% of the math books and 1 semester of logic. We limped through science, but they are getting it through a class next year. You know what? When history is done, I am closing the year.
Saxon is an intense math and 2 years of Algebra includes 1 year of Geometry, so if we do it in 3 years, it is not a problem. That made me feel SO MUCH BETTER! I had no idea how heavily that was weighing on me!
So, I go to get in the truck to run to the store for fabric on an order. Truck doesn't start - typical. I am pretty sure it is the battery. DH will replace it tonight - and I will go to the store either tonight late or tomorrow early. I am putting off homeschool this week so I can take my time in planning the rest of the 2017/2018 school year.
WOW - really, that was bothering me so much!
