I've got nothing folks. No, that is not so. I've got lots and lots that I want to share but I am so stinking tired tonight my brain just will not focus and allow me to put coherent thoughts together on this electronic paper I call a blog. I want to blog about the flexibility of homeschooling, time management, classroom management, homeschooling with wide age groups, other curriculum I love, what has not worked so well for us and boy does the list go on. I went and helped my Mama with a catering job today and well, I think I will be washing dishes in my sleep. So, basically what I am doing right now is brainstorming and just seeing where my fuzzy brain takes me.
I get very little time away from my kiddos and on those rare occasions when I do, like today, it is a mixed bag. I do not particularly feel the need to get away that much. I do sometimes yearn for adult conversation and peace and quiet. I feel awful saying that...like I am somehow cheating on my kiddos. I mean how could I possibly not want to be around them every single moment for the rest of my life? Honestly, time is flying by and I do not want to miss a second of them growing up. Homeschooling allows me to be there and experience it all. I love that about homeschooling. I love the ups and downs of raising kids 24/7. But, sometimes I get weary and need to let Jamie take over for a few hours. Does that make me a bad mama? Somehow, I feel like it does. I know deep down we all need a break sometimes. I struggle with this my friends. I struggle greatly with this. Once a week, I get and hour and a half away when I grocery shop. That is my "me time"...at the Wally World.
I am really needing some guidance here fellow stay at home mamas. How do you feel about "me time"? How do you handle your need for some quiet time?
Guys, I am tired and tend to get a little mushy when I am tired. I really am looking forward to hearing from you on this "me time" issue. Now, I am going to relax for five minutes and see if I can get my sweet hubbie to rub my aching feet.
Much love tonight my blogosphere buddies,
