Burnt Out

Good Advice

Heard while the children were playing:

Boo, wearing a black cape:  “Hey, you don’t pinch Dracula!”

Me:  “Yeah, you don’t tug on Superman’s cape, either.”

Kids: “Huh?”

Me: “You don’t spit into the wind.  You don’t pull the mask off the ol’ Lone Ranger and apparently you don’t pinch Dracula.”

Kids: “Ohhhh-kay”

Methinks a little remedial Jim Croce is in order.

Burnt Out

I’ll admit it, I’m burnt out.  This homeschooling gig has finally gotten to me and for the first time since we started,  we are taking the whole summer off and I’m looking forward to it.

I’m so tired.  I’m going through the motions.  There are so many other things I need to be doing – admittedly, none are as important – and they nag at me daily.

I’m an introvert and I need time alone every single day for my mental health.  I’m not getting it and I can feel the affects.

And sometimes this blog feels like a burden, like it is something I have to be doing.  Just one more thing on the never-ending list.  I don’t want it to be like that.

I will trudge along with the schooling until we get to the point where we can stop for the summer.  A couple of more weeks.  I can manage that.

Then I will focus on my list, take care of those things that have languished over the last several months. Get some rest, take care of me for awhile.  See if my blogging mojo comes back.  I bet it does.
