exercise and sickness

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

I have realized that I need to exercise.  Even the thought of exercise starts an allergic reaction, one where I run and hide in the bedroom with a bag of Oreos and a day long marathon of The Housewives of Wherever,  then I marvel at the fact that these women who do NOTHING all day but sit and kibitz like a group of broody hens, manages to stay so stinkin’ thin……

which brings me back to the part where I realize I need to exercise…….

Anyone else see a pattern of denial here?

In our homeschool this week…

We had a week off.  Totally unplanned.  Completely blamed on sickness.  I finally gave in on Friday and took the boy to the Dr.  Now, with drugs on board, he is better, nearly healed by Sunday….  Few more days on the Antibiotics and we can say we are healthy again.  But he is back to school today!

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Don’t be too hard on yourself. God gave these children to YOU to raise.  He knew they needed you as their mom.  Don’t feel like a failure if you aren’t as crafty as Jane, or as organized as Suzy.  Your child will not die if they don’t do 7,000 crafts by the time they are 6, and laundry piles are NORMAL!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

Big kids went on a Retreat this weekend.  They had fun.  I can tell. I just haven’t had the full data download yet from them.

Little’s and Hubby and I went for a hike on Saturday at a 29 acre place some friends are looking at buying.  We walked through the gully where the creek is.  Pretty stinkin’ cool.

My favorite thing this week was…

Not having to get up at 5:30 am on Friday morning.  It is the only day I don’t have to be the shuttle service, for the college and career bound. This was followed closely by an actual sleep in Saturday.  I haven’t had one of those in forever!

What’s working/not working for us…

I know I just said up there not to worry about being as organized as Suzy, but I need to be a bit more organized.  Like in the weekly sense….  I think I need to print out some charts and have them on the wall to keep me on track.  Otherwise we are easily distracted and go off into tangent land….. cand anyone say:  SQUIRREL?!?!??!

I’m grateful for…

A husband who knows what to say when I am stressed.  A husband who is a leader of my home, physically, and spiritually.  I am most thankful for the journey that has brought us to a place of unity, and left us stronger than we were before.
