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 should....er....want. 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!
