Things came to a head yesterday.
Homeschool - With everything, DH and I decided to stop, guilt free, and evaluate exactly where we are going with it. A break for us since we have been homeschooling for almost 3 years straight with funky breaks and stressful times. We all need a stress free break. In looking at what we have accomplished, we are not behind at all. So, I ordered some summer fun things - like math games, nature journals, drawing pencils, Boogle, etc. Dad set out a plan for them and HE will follow through with them, not me. I get a time to enjoy them as my children, not my pupils for a while.
Home - I went to wash clothes and the tub was full of water. Sigh. Hopefully DH got it fixed last night - I have not been in there to check this morning.
Son#2 - Is moving in with his girlfriend - Double Sigh. AND I just found out that they lost their apartment for next year due to a clerical error (apartment person told me that), so at this point, they do not have a place to live. They may be dorming it. Which would be great for them NOT living together. As much as I want to stress about this, I just don't have it in me.
Business: I am gearing up for fall. At this point, I will be 3 large shows - possibly 4, so business may be booming by this time next year - or not. We are giving it 3 full years. We will see.
I am still a little frozen - meaning, I am having a difficult time getting much done. Yeah, I know I need to pull up my boot straps and I will. I need to give myself a little time to decompress from the past 2 years.
Plus, it is cloudy and dark and perfect for curling up with a book on the easy chair and be drowsy. I will get my energy back - I just a few nights of really good sleep...
So, the next 3 months are for deciding
1. Will I homeschool? If not, where will they go?
2. Business - what direction to take it? How will it look with homeschool?
3. If I decide to continue to homeschool - what curriculum, what extra curriculars? balance with business?
These are difficult questions as the 2 don't mix really, but need to. I am as curious as you are about what will happen, but I am going to let it go for this next month. No more talk about homeschool for at least 30 days! Focus is home and business. Period!
