I loved the launch of this new week on Sunday. I feel like I am getting more settled in to a groove with my reading. I struggle making time for the sit which is just a lack of planning on my part. I can’t seem to sit in the early morning hours as my little ones have a radar for ‘mom is up and ready for the day’. I laugh as I write that I sit in my closet on the floor behind the door every morning to get my reading done. It took a few mornings but they found my spot, however the closet is carpeted so they come in and lay down while I read. Evenings haven’t worked as well for the sit due to my falling asleep if I save it for the end of the day. Midday in between preschool pickup and homeschooling is the only window it seems but it’s a tight squeeze.
Sigh, all the mothers out there getting this done, how are you doing it? Adding even one more thing into my world is crazy but with all the readings, postings, readings, sits, readings, etc I am struggling in my normal day to day. For example my 4 year old needed to have 5 apples (3 red, 2 green and one yellow) as well as $3 for the school pumpkin patch. I bought 3 pumpkins and sent in $5 for apples! That’s only the start of it. Having a single item of laundry that HAD to be washed and ready for the morning…I sorted all the darks, whites, colors and delicates. I started the necessary load of laundry and even stayed up to swap it to the dryer and fold only to discover the most important item never made it into the wash! (I had set it carefully to side so as to not forget it) I have made 3 trips to the grocers/market in 5 days and bought the same items on each trip so we have triplicates of items.
I have my DMP done though and my chore/service card so that counts right?!
