40 Days of Moving While Homeschooling {DAY 0}


Well, we all see where that went quickly. 

That happens all to often in my life.  I get these good intentions and make this fun plans and then poof. Time gets away from me.  I have been looking at some time wasters for me.  I find myself wishing I could get by on less sleep.  I just require sleep.  I don’t get by on just a few hours each night I need a solid 10+ hours.  I can get by one night on just a few hours.  I also can’t nap. If I lay down to sleep for a few hours, I just can’t get back up.  If I manage to then I have a huge headache and I am a real grump until I get the solid sleep I need.  I also waste time playing Plants vs Zombies.  Other than that I really don’t see anywhere I am wasting time.  Much time is spent cooking, cleaning, educating, driving, volunteering, working, having fun family time or time with my husband.

Enough excuses, right?

You get it.

You’re busy too.

So I really thank you for taking the time to read my posts.  It’s a little ego boost for me to know someone out there enjoys my life. I sure do!

First off we decided not to move.  It just ended up not being the right thing to do at this time in our lives.

I spent the next few days after the last moving post, unpacking and then Thanksgiving time snuck up on us.

Katey was in a cute little Thanksgiving play.  She was Rose Standish.  Miles Standish’s wife.  She did great.P2092418

My friend and I sewed all the cute little pilgrim costumes besides the boys hats.  We just had all the kids wear black and then we made the aprons, arm cuffs, yokes and girls’ hats.  I also made buckles for the shoes but they were way to big so we scrapped those.


Then we traveled for Thanksgiving.  We left town for a week.  That was crazy busy and hard to keep up with. 

When I got home, I struggled for two weeks and then I had a meltdown.  I had to take some time off work and get my family and my life back on track.  I have been doing better now.  I still have my days when I feel overwhelmed.  We are definitely having more good days then bad now.

I have also picked up a new hobby.  I am learning how to crochet.  I am very excited about this and I put an unrealistic goal to make each of my kids something.  I have one of my four kids almost done…  I still have 5 more days until Christmas …..  I can do it.

I am done for now.  I have so much more to say….  See ya tomorrow….

Ugh - moving, holidays and homeschooling. We are looking at moving in Feb or Mar maybe. I am not looking forward to it. I also have plans to take 3 college courses starting Jan AND my daughter is getting married Mar 15. Thankfully, I can get by on about 4 hrs of sleep for almost a week before crashing. I am taking today off to try to connect up to as many fellow Crew members as possible because I know it will almost be impossible come January! Cool fact- my mil loves genealogy and has traced my husband's family back to Miles Standish. (
