Summer . . . What Summer?

Well, our summer break is almost half over, assuming we'll begin school August 6th to allow more breaks during the year. I have to say it hasn't been much of a break, but it has been good. Due to the fact that in the past two and a half years I've had two babies and started homeschooling an ADHD child (read: everything takes at least twice as long because he is distracted by dust particles floating in the air!), there has not been time to do some of the things I love most - organize and plan! I have just been surviving day-to-day, biding my time until I could get things back in order. Now is that time.

I have blogged about my "Summer To-Do List" as well as my "Curriculum Crisis", and since then just about every spare moment has been spent working on one of those two projects (with tons of playtime with the boys in the mix...I don't want to rob them of a fun summer because Mommy is a little neurotic!). It has been all-consuming to say the least. During the day I'm working to get my house in order, and each evening I am on the computer from the time I put my little men to bed until the wee hours of the morning researching and bugging people on the WTM message boards with my endless questions. I have not even run in over two weeks, which for me is an eternity.

Right now we are still in the "It gets worse before it can get better." phase but so much has been accomplished already. I am about two-thirds of the way through my spring cleaning list and I ordered all my curriculum last night - at least what of it I could afford! lol. July will be spent trying to get caught up on my boys scrapbooks and planning for next year. Oh my, I get overwhelmed just thinking about it. That will be another blog and another to-do list. Get ready WTM message board friends. I will need some serious help!

you ordered already!! good for you! I am pretty sure of what I want to use next year, but I haven't actually ordered. Your post reminds me that I need to get in gear. I've found lots to look at over the WTM boards too.

Cleaning..now there's another story, I am actually itching to conquer the chaos, I just need to find more time.
