Mom Help!

Oh, do I LOVE this topic as, I'm sure, do other homeschool moms. We need a lot of help, right? Ok, maybe some more than others. There are those who make it look so easy! Can I have a piece of their pie, please?

So, what gets me through the day? What keeps me from going insane? Let's see....
1. The thought of a good book at the end of the day. I like to curl up in a quiet spot (even if that means shutting myself in my room) and reading until I drift off to sleep.
2. Knowing that SOON I can put my pajamas back on and curl up with hubby on the couch to watch a little tv.
3. My new found friend - blogging. I love to see what other moms are doing and I'm learning a lot!

4. A nice hot bubble bath - which I haven't had for quite a while and may be the reason my family has been complaining that I'm having hissy fits lately. Well, if they'd just pick up their clothes and rinse their dishes so the food doesn't dry on them, I might not have hissy fits! ....Excuse me for a moment, there's playdough in the 3 year old's hair and the dog has a sock that does NOT belong to him.....

Obviously, I don't get these things nearly as much as I However, I do have a date with my husband coming up very soon. Maybe that will provide a little down time.
I can't wait to see what other moms do for their down time!


  1. Great post - I agree with you!!!

    Your blog is so cute, thanks for sharing!

  2. Your blog is so cute. I love the cherries :) Oh, what I wouldn't do for a Cherry Limeade - of course there isnt' a Sonic for thousands of miles......

    If you like the movie Pride and Prejudice, then you HAVE to see Wives and Daughters. It was a book by Elizabeth Gaskell that wasn't finished. They finished it in the movie though and it's perfect :)

  3. Hi Dana :) What a fun post! Thanks for sharing. I'm a book lover, too, and it is a joy to settle into a good one at the end of the evening. I've not had a bubble bath in a while either... hmmm... maybe there is something to your theory about that - lol! Have a lovely evening. Blessings, Q

    PS - Like the others, I think your blog design is so cheerful. Love that bright red!

  4. My puppy dog always jumps on the girls' beds and steals stuffed animals!!

    Great post, I love the cherry theme! MMm, cherry pie sounds
    good. . .

  5. Even my boys recognize that Mom is retreating when the pajamas and comfy clothes come on. Those cuddling times are essential.

  6. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting. I'm glad I could be an encouragement, just trying to encourage myself really. :-)

  7. Oops, forgot to put my url so you'd know who JM was...

  8. great ways to get some help! I love getting into my pajamas at the end of the day too! :)
    Prayers and Blessings,
    Miss Amanda

  9. I can see the dog with the sock on....our dog often gets dressed whether he likes it or not. ;) Have a great date night!!!
