Homeschooling Mother's Journal

In my life this week…this week has flown by quickly. Having Monday as a holiday for hubby has thrown my whole week off.

In our homeschool this week…I think daughter has the winter blues. It's been harder this week to get her motivated to do her schooling. I think we need to shake things up a bit. I need to think on this.

I am inspired by…our warm weather. Spring is just around the corner.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…on Sunday, we went to my MIL's to visit and leave Robyn for an overnight visit. MIL prepared fresh croissants and strawberry preserves with cream. Oh my, was it good! We had a little tea party. It was a sweet time of fellowship. On Monday, hubby had an eye exam appointment and we started our day off early with that, breakfast at the Cracker Barrel and a nice countryside drive. We ended our drive with a sundae from DQ. We are fast, cheap and easy!

My favorite thing this week was…spending the day driving through the countryside with my better half.

What’s working/not working for us…I got to bed early last night. I do that on occasion, when I am just wiped out. But I was awake at 1:30 and didn't go back to bed until 4:30. Insomnia. I's got it! LOL

Things I’m working on…climbing Mount Laundry, forever doing dishes, forever cooking, forever putting off grocery shopping...

I’m reading…nothing new.

I’m cooking…check out my Monday posts to read my weekly menus.

I’m grateful for…a loving heavenly father, a hard working and intelligent hubby and a sweet almost teenage daughter. Also, some unemployed friends recently got work. So happy for them.

I’m praying for…some energy to do the things I need to do and for my insomnia to let up.

Thank you for stopping by Second Star Academy at Chaos Cottage. I always enjoy your visits. Come by and visit again. And today is my birthday! I will have a super duper day with the family and dinner out tonight. Yes!!!

Your day out with your hubby sounds marvelous. I love it when my hubby & I get off by ourselves. It doesn't happen often, but how I enjoy it when it does. It reminds me of when we first got married & I was his entire world, you know, not having to share him with anyone. But, I'm thankful for our children & would not trade them for anything. So we'll just take the brief moments we get. Have a great weekend.
