I am taking the week off.
It is the school kids spring break and I am gonna give my kids the week off too.
I have been feeling so burnt out and like I am floundering without direction. Especially when it comes to my kids' education. I need to regroup.
There are so many things here that require my attention and I feel like none of them are getting what they deserve. It is overwhelming and oppressive to my spirit.
This week I am going to go over a number of schooling options and plan out the rest of their year and get a good grip on next year. I am going to order the things I need for school that I keep putting off buying. I am going to catch up on marking.
In my home, I am going to wash my windows so that I can have a clear view of the world. I think that is the number one chore I can do to give me a better outlook and a clear vision. I also want to get a good start on spring cleaning and to continue purging.
For my children, I want to spend a week without nagging. I want them to go outside and have the sunlight warm their lovely faces. I want to have fun with them. I will take each of them for a little one on one time with mommy and hopefully get in a fieldtrip or two.
I am firstly going to continue to pray on these things and get back in the habit of devotional time, time to refresh the spirit and gird myself for the day ahead.
Maybe I will even spend some time doing things I love, like scrapbooking, writing and reading. Maybe.
