Totally get ya girl! This is me as well! I have 3 kiddos: 22 yrs. 10 and 8. They do suck alot out of you but in the end, it is all worth it! BUT that also means that there is not enough time to do everything I need to do for myself!

I do find that I'm getting up about an hour earlier than everyone else and that is when I take my walk, workout on the Wii or something. It is SO important to take alittle YOU time so you don't burn out!

Where do you school from? We are in North Carolina and thankfully the weather isn't too bad so we go out as a family and take nature walks and try and do some of our school work out in the yard while I work in the garden or something. Today we are actually hitting some of the local hiking trails because we have a science/zoology scavenger hunt! :)

I am so blessed! I pray for many blessings for each of you as you journey through your life.

"Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." -- Nehemiah 8:10b

emoticon It IS draining,particularly if your DS ,as in my case, knows what to do and is always complaining anyways. We started a chart with him when he was 4 about behaviors and chores. He is now 8. He has attained all the behaviors thoroughly but respect~which to me is THE MOST important! So, this week ,after talking to him constantly about how he is disrespecting God{we are born-again Christians and honor our Lord with teaching from the Bible} as well as us and anyone else in authority, and explaining how much FASTER it is when you obey,get the work DONE so there is TIME LEFT OVER for other FUN THINGS AS WELL~HE GOT IT !!!!!
He has finally got it ! Now, this is THIS WEEK and EACH WEEK is different! We EXPECT he WILL BEHAVE .
So, hang in there! emoticon We KNOW this IS WORTH IT ! emoticon IT IS THE emoticon AND you 'll be GLAD YOU DID !!!

Yes, very busy! And very draining! But totally worth it! Find those moments of rest in between being drained for some refueling. :)

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Col. 3:23

I wasn't very active when I first joined this board, but I'm trying to regain momentum in my healthy efforts. Boy, homeschooling sucks a lot out of Momma! My theme for this year is finding and maintaining simplicity and balance. I have a lot of weight to lose....shooting for 50-60 lbs. by my birthday, mid-June. I've already lost 5 lbs. in the past 6 weeks. Slow, steady, lasting life changes are what I'm going for. Today, I plan to list all my gimmicky fad diet books on Ebay. I have 3 daughters, ages 10, 7, and 5, whom I am home schooling. We love it, but it's busy!
