Well, we’ve had a LOT of changes here recently. Like I almost gave up on all the schooling and was a smidge away from placing the kids into one of those online public school programs. I didn’t though…but I have looked into the options of more “prepared” materials/activities and more things that involve organized events.
We’ve been saving up to be able to buy more of those materials because short of getting a “Time Turner” from Professor McGonagal, taking No Doze 24/7, or waiting at some crossroads I can’t put more time in each day. So…saving money and buying some materials or some snazzy equipment to help me make materials. I think I’m growing up and realizing I really can’t do it all on my own. I can’t diy everything, homeschooler, bake/cook (we’re in the process of getting ready for GAPS), clean, sew, finish my degree, be a mom, a wife, make my own soap/deodorant/shampoo/cleaning supplies and not be a complete mental mess.
So, I’m looking at backing down on things that won’t make a difference in the long run. I don’t have to finish my degree right now. It can wait. I don’t have to grow everything especially when the Farmer’s Market has organic veggies. I don’t have to make our deodorant as Toms makes some great stuff. Check out the Lavender apparently it moisturizes. (did you know armpits need moisturized?)
I’m starting to utilize the resources around me and, I’m really glad. There’s a saying that it’s darkest just before the sunrise. Well, I can see some rays.
