The Homeschooling Mother's Journal

In my life this week…still giddy about hubby working! Made our eye doctor appointments now that we have wonderful insurance. More doctors appointments are to come. Three years of no insurance means we are all overdue to see our doctors.

In our homeschool this week…we were hit and miss this week as life just got in the way. We will catch up though, we always do!

I am inspired by…our wonderful warm weather. My daffodils bloomed in January! I know there are folks who are wanting to see snow, but in my "old" age, I don't really care for it any longer.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…we have a friend who is taking a counseling class at our church on Thursday evenings and now his son stays with us while his daddy is in class. This week he and my daughter enjoyed watching some old Muppet shows on DVD and playing on the Wii together.

My favorite thing this week was…getting my new Mary Kay products! It's been so long since I've had any new skin care products, and MK is my favorite! I ordered from my good friend's daughter in Ohio and the products were here in two days! Doing the happy dance!

What’s working/not working for us…trying to stick to a schedule is difficult for me. I go to bed every night with a plan in mind for the next day and the things I want to accomplish. One of these days...

Things I’m working on…still trying to get motivated to start packing up things again. I make plans, but haven't done a great job of following through. I feel like homeschooling is my first priority here along with feeding my family and keeping us all in clean underwear! After that, I like to surf the web and watch the TV way too much! One of these days...just being honest here.

I’m reading…my bible daily, and Mansfield Park with the mood strikes me.

I’m cooking…yummy goodies for my family. I post my menu every Sunday evening or Monday morning. Check it for recipes and ideas for your family.

I’m grateful for…God's providence, love and care for my family.

I’m praying for…friends who are unemployed, having marital problems, a cousin who is trying to get SS benefits and for me to get into a early bed/early rising routine. I accomplish so much more when I've had a good night's sleep and get a early start on my day. One of these days...

Thank you for visiting Second Star Academy at Chaos Cottage. Please come back again.
