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.

More Mac and Cheese, please!

  • I hear you Lorri. These upper grades are a very different kind of tiring. I think the on the go running after activities is what taps me out, and we make it a point to not over schedule. Hang in there, I’ll be praying that God fills you up with just what you need each day.
