I could not sleep for sh– last night. I literally went to bed at 1 and woke up at 130 frantic that I overslept for my morning job that starts at 645. My daughter went through the same thing. She was in my bed, her bed, the chair, everywhere. Needless to say after leaving my job at 830 and running to the store and an hour and a half of school work for her, we crashed. We did not eat lunch, did not pass GO, we fell asleep face down at 11 a.m. and did not stir until 2 pm. We ate a bacon gouda at Starbucks at 2 pm and she did her online class for an hour on the laptop while I ran errands.
I am so thankful for my T-Mobile hotspot on days like this. It was also awesome because I did some business calls and online stuff for the therapy job I do for 30 minutes while in grocery store parking lot. My laptop and my car look like we are on the go, literally. They both need thorough cleaning, and even though I am a neat freak and love for things to be in their place, I am not a clean freak by any means. My toilet is not spotless. My dishes are in the dishwasher and recyclables and trash are always on point. But I do not get out the Windex and Clorox on a regular basis-sue me.
So basically I am all over the place with this post today and I guess it is partly because I am still super groggy and want nothing more than to climb into the bed and stay there. But, if I do that, guess what will happen again? A repeat of today. I cannot have that happen because we are at 98 percent for the year for all of the Language Arts courses and Art, but we are behind on Math because my kid does not like it. We are also behind on Science and History because we love it! We wanted to save those for last because we love the books and the topics. So, we have to catch up on everything because when you take an online public school curriculum, you have to do it at their pace. They want all of the subjects covered 5 days a week. I get it, but we are almost completely finished in some of them, but not at a high enough percent at the other end. Then we have to study for the big standardized tests. I like structure, but part of the reason I home school is to have control over learning. I think that this is the last year for online public school and on to another type of curriculum…
Anyway, I have to put on my big girl undies and get back to non-holiday scheduling. I will have to set my brain to be a morning person and actually love it. We will have to realize that my daughter will have to go to bed at 8 p.m. again and we can’t drag family activities on as we did for a lot of December. I am doing a good thing by doing social media earlier today and this blog post. The next thing that I will do is do my devotional earlier than 1145 at night. I am super proud of myself for sticking to everything I wanted to do except for the exercise part. Every single time I do Just Dance with my daughter and start to get hot, I start coughing and have to stop. So, I will be glad when that cough drama is over because I got a arm phone sleeve so that I could exercise and keep up with it since my Fitbit is defunct.
I hope that all of you are accomplishing would you would like too. My hopes for all of you is that you continue the momentum and do not falter after a few weeks. After repeating a pattern for a couple of weeks, actions become habits. So keep up the awesome work!! You can do it. And, I can do it! We got this! Yayyyy us!!!
