Still Learning


So I spent the last week sitting here listening to inspiring speakers, and yes, I learned a lot.  Some of the things I learned, however, had nothing to do with educating my children.  I learned that:

  • My housework can be finished in incredibly short windows of time when I have the proper motivation.
  • When I am listening for hours, I get all my laundry folded promptly, something that doesn’t usually happen around here.
  • I am able to accomplish a great deal more in one day than I had previously thought.
  • When I know that I have to plan ahead for meals, they get fixed on time.
  • I am much more organized when time is limited.
  • If I know that I have a date with the computer and that live sessions will not wait on me, we ARE able to start school earlier.

I know.  Nothing really earthshaking, but it seems that maybe some of this information might be useful in the future doesn’t it?

We’ll see…

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    How scary is that, huh? I’ve noticed that with time, and with money. If I only have $12 to spend at the market, I do amazing things, practically work miracles. When I have $112, it’s not enough. I don’t like it. I want to value my time and money the same, no matter how much of it I have to spend. Maybe, that’s not what you were saying. I guess it’s what your post made me think about, that I’m a loser.

    @BooksForMe – That’s exactly how I felt.  So frustrating how many days I seem to get absolutely NOTHING done all day long, but then when I have only an odd hour here and there, I manage to accomplish more than usual.  I have always wondered how someone could homeschool and work away from home–I guess now I know.  But I have to say that I wouldn’t want this hectic schedule on a regular basis–I was wiped out today and took a long nap.  Also, I think relationships with kids and husband would seriously suffer.
