Blech

Oh holy, holy, holy crap. 2 1/2 weeks till school, people. 19 DAYS. NINETEEN DAYS to prepare mind-tingling educational stuff with which to make their minds expand.

It's gonna take a lot more coffee and wine to make this happen...

Slurp, slurp. Speaking of coffee, I am indulging myself in a big mug of luke warm joe as I write. Nothing quite as mediocre as coffee that doesn't burn my tongue.

Heh. Know what I just did? I poured my coffee into a pot and cooked it on the stove. That? Is desperation.

Needless to say, I am searching for a new microwave because this situation will not be healthy for any of my children. Mama needs her caffeine!

My goal today is to stay away from my shiny computer box and get several more weeks of school lessons written out and planned so that we can start the year off with half the stress. One can hope, right?

Oh, man. Reason number 573 I could never homeschool. I'm at the end of my summer rope with the only light a the end of the tunnel being school starting (nice use of mixed metaphor anyone?). I can't imagine taking this level of stress and trying to create intelligent works that will mold my children's future.

Well, that probably didn't help. No pressure.

But see? I have it all. I just need to lay it out. And it's not any more work than the homework from public school. I SWEAR to GOD.

The call of the shiny computer box is hard to resist! Good luck! =>

your not helping lady. it is these posts that scare me to homeschool ;)

Meh. It's not meant to scare anyone. Every change is a big deal. And I don't HAVE to plan out their lessons, but I have a high needs child that does better with detailed plans, so I have to work around his needs. Again, I find that I do less school work with the kids on homeschooling than I ever did with the homework they brought home.

You know, people used to make coffee on the stove. In fact, my parents still do from time to time. When they're making the "good" stuff, as they say. So you're not being desperate, you're honoring tradition. Looking for the half full side of this. :)

Thanks Cara. You made me feel a little cooler than I did this morning...
