When I see a post like yours I think that poor parent is trying to do too much and not taking care of themselves.

It's far too easy to think we should be doing this and that and so on but before we know it, we feel overwhelmed. We are only human. We have to be careful not to do too much or put too much on ourselves or the kids.

Take some time for yourself and organize in such a way this year that you don't over do. This is your children's education, that's true but it is also YOUR life. Do it in a way that you can enjoy or risk losing yourself and your joy. That wouldn't be good for you or your family.

I too have had those fun health problems (I had a baby back in April and you can imagine the emotional rollercoaster) the best thing to do on those days or moments is find some mindless task and just put everything else behind you. I know it sounds lame but when the hormone flow was really bad for me I got really addicted to Stack em up Solitaire on Webkinz


Thank you for your post! I started crochet and that is just the mindless stuff I needed! I also do need to get out more, and DH and I are working on it!

WOW. CAN I RELATE TO THIS. i am toiling over sending my four to school this year, and all of your reasons are mine too. I do not know how these HS moms balance the act, groceries, Dr. visits, exercise, oil changes, errands, seeing my mom, being involved in church....how does the balance work?
My kids are 12,10, 7 and 6- homeschooling since the beginning and still STRUGGLING.

Sheila....I will pray for you if you and you pray for me! Smile
Thank you for sharing about your frustration too. It is nice to know I am not the only one who feels this way.
