What a Homeschool Mama Needs : A Reminder to BREATHE

Just Breathe

Sometimes I hold my breath. Maybe it’s my reaction to stress that I’ve built up over the years so I could keep moving and not think about it. Maybe it’s holding on to life so hard that my soul’s knuckles are bare and my body doesn’t breathe out of respect. When I’m not breathing, though… […]

Sunday night I stayed up late trying to sync my iPhone. If you know how disobedient iTunes can be, and how long it takes you to back up purchases on your iPhone when you haven’t done it, (like, For.Ever.)… you’ll imagine the kind of time I had to kill while everyone else was asleep. I […]

I’ve been tired enough to take a nap today since 2PM. The only reason why I didn’t is because I had too much to get done. This week has been much the same… Monday we crammed homeschool in a condensed pile of assignments and tried to dig out of last weekend’s laundry pile. Tuesday we […]
