How do I keep it all straight??
How do I keep from going completely NUTS??!!!
I don’t really know.. Some may even say, its too late. She is already nuts!
Gonna just let some of it flow out today since I don’t really have a specific post in mind. Several in pondering mode yet, but none ready to put up. I need to spend time, which I haven’t had again lately. Something about 5 kids home, one getting married and moving into their own home. Another living at home and working full time and then some. And another dealing with his recent surgery and figuring out that the bills will need to get paid. Oh- and having a rabbit surprise us with a litter of babies that didn’t make it past 2 days, adding 30 chicks to the menagerie, and canning/freezing produce that of course finally comes ready NOW!!
Yes, he will be paying his own medical bills. It was an accident he did snowboarding. He is old enough to figure out how to pay his own bills- a VERY important lesson in my book. I did make the phone call with him, to put this on a doable payment plan. He is not happy about this, since it cuts into his car fund, but it needs to get paid!
5 of the kids are preparing to go back to school. Which opens another topic for a blog post. I have been pondering the idea of keeping at least the youngest 3 home this year. Still pondering and kind of “checking” with them about what they think. So far, they have been wavering between home and school. I have been looking into something called “Classical Conversations”. It looks very interesting actually, but I am not sure. If you have any thoughts about it, good or bad, please make a comment, I would appreciate your thoughts.
I have some homeschooling posts in mind. I would like to share with you some things I have learned over the 15 or so years I did spend homeschooling. If you have any topics you would like me to touch on, again, please make a comment. I will do my best to write a post about that topic and what I learned from it.
Now that they are preparing to go back to school, they are wanting to go back to school shopping. (Never mind that we have an abundance of stuff left from last year and have perfectly good backpacks and lunch boxes!!) I am NOT interested in back to school anything! I feel like summer somehow got shorted!! Yes, it has been a beautiful summer but we have not gone to the beach, spent time at the parks I have been wanting to go to, or gone on picnics at all!! I will, however, post some pics from a park we did get to last week that was absolutely awesome!
I also have some marriage posts I want to do sometime. Advice from the Worst Wife Ever I was going to call it!! hehe… Just some thoughts from some things I have been reading, learning and trying hard to quit doing in my own marriage!! Again still in the pondering mode there…
And, lastly, entertaining some thoughts about actually paying for a domain name site. It offers more freedom and well, there are perks to setting that up. Just not sure I am ready for that- Not sure that my posts are interesting enough. I guess its something I need to really pray about..
Please feel free to comment on any of the thoughts I have posted today. Especially if they are encouraging!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog!!
