The last week in September I was going to blog about our family goals. That was going to be the last in my unintended homeschooling theme of the month. However, my husband lost a close friend that week, which was hard on me as well, to see him so sad. And to know his family is grieving. Ever since, I just haven’t felt like writing. I tried to motivate myself, but just wasn’t feeling it. I’ve also realized we are too busy! I haven’t had the energy, but have been running around all week regardless! I canceled Fox Tracks, the nature program I was so excited about my kids joining! We went to one day and it’s a really good program, but after a crazy busy week last week, I realized it’s too much for us to be out all day Monday, Tuesday, and most Wednesdays. By Thursday we were all exhausted and the house desperately needed cleaning! I wanted to be home (most) Thursday’s (some I work and can barely drag myself and tired cranky kids there!) so we could do projects together, not clean! We are all really missing cooking together, doing science projects, playing board games, all that fun stuff! So, Monday’s are back to cleaning day and I’m so relieved. That’s always been a good day to have it since I don’t clean on weekends and the house so needs it by then! I tidy up constantly, but that’s the day I pick a couple big tasks like the kitchen or bathrooms to deep clean. Anyway, I’ll get back to writing again soon. Right now I just feel like curling up and going to sleep till next Spring!
