Topsey-Turvey Life

The past few months have been such a struggle for me. We have had a lot going on here. We are in the process of fixing up our old house to put it on the market. This has taken all of Brad's extra time. I miss him! He's my best friend and we have had no alone time together at all. I miss talking with him. So we finally planned for the girls to stay at his mom's house tonight. Guess what...I'm sick! We're still going to hang out together, however I'm so disappointed that I won't be feeling my best.

Our homeschool has been another source of disappointment for me. This has been our worst-ever year. I have really lacked self-discipline this year! We/I have had so many interruptions...so much stress... do to moving, holidays,starting my own business, and lately... sicknesses. I've been having moments where I wonder what the heck I think I'm doing. Really doubting myself and my ability to continue on this journey. Yet...no one, including the kids, want the alternative (public school). I keep telling myself that we will get back on track...keep persevering. We will continue on... with the prayer that things will get better.

I'm going to go back to my MOTH and Flylady ways for the discipline that I need to get things done. they gave me the tools before to set up routines...changing my life for the better. I know that I can do this...I just have to come up with workable plan...and stick to it!
