Overwhelmed By Life

I'm a little overwhelmed by my life today.

We've started school.  My 2nd grader reads well above grade level but still needs a lot of my attention with the curriculum we chose.  My kindergartener can't read yet so requires my help with almost everything.  And the pre-K 4 year old is so excited to have her own school books she can hardly stand it.  Meanwhile the (almost) 2 year old is greatly offended to be gated in his room alone while we do school.

In addition to school there's the laundry that doesn't fold itself, dishes that multiply in the sink when my back is turned, and bathrooms that grow stuff if I'm not diligent.

Oh!  And we're still re-doing our half bathroom.  Walls and floors are done.  Now Joel gets to install the new vanity, sink and toilet.  Then I get to do a little decorating.

All of that to say, Stephanie's Mommy Brain will be on hiatus for the next 2 weeks.  By then I should have us all on a working routine and find time again for blogging.

Wish me luck!!

Ps.  On a positive note, I have lost 17 pounds since June 1.  :)

Well that's an awesome positive note to end on! HURRAY and Congratulations!

See you whenever you get back to blogging. And I'll try not to say "haha" to THAT at the rate you are going!

17! Woo hoo! Good for you!

Hope everything else in life calms down before you head for the border! The home schooling stuff sounds very challenging, but I have no doubt you will get into a routine that works for you guys!

Congratulations! Also, getting healthier and working that into the routine is great. You are an awesome inspiration. :)
