Mondays are usually a day where we are home all day. We get TONS of school done on those days.
That is super important right now as we’ve used most of our vacation time for the year. That is the wonderful privilege of home schooling. Sometimes our priorities are not multiplication tables or biology experiments. So we rearranged our schedule because the lesson that people are more important than school a priority.
I mentioned last week how we have a new normal. Well in the old normal I was a pretty organized person. The kids had assigned chores, did laundry on certain days & regularly cooked & helped with dishes.
We still get
all almost all that done now but it is not organized. I am okay with that. That is one more lesson that God has taught me as we go through cancer with my mom. He doesn’t care if my floors are mopped(they aren’t) but he does care if I’ve taken the time to call or stop by.
Needless to say that my extra time is not devoted to my favorite hobby. I usually sleep, snuggle with kids or do laundry(never done). I haven’t touched my scrapbooking since October when I went on a weekend getaway with friends. BUT I did get my stuff out of the closet this weekend.
Now if I can just sneak away for a few minutes to journal or work on a layout. So thankful I had time for the first step to getting some time to indulge in my hobby.
