Wow, life has been crazy unorganized, stressful, surprising, painful, and yet it still a good life. :D Here is why.
Well, my husband is on his fourth week of no work. He is a contract worker so if there is no work, he doesn't go into the office. Yep, every day we are all PRAYING that work just comes flooding in to the office. It's actually there waiting for signatures to be released. This is typically a slow time of the year for the company but we didn't know in advance and found out when it was too late. We would love your prayers!
It's been painful because I've been waking up with headaches almost every morning and pain in my feet when I walk. It's only for a bit after I wake up but it's like the joints are hurting. I wonder if I'm missing some sort of nutrient that I need in my body? I don't know.
I'm still working on the decluttering process in my house but it's a slower process this time because we are pretty busy. I wish I just had hours to do it really fast like last time but I don't. I just want a simple, simple, simple house and the TIME to make it that way. I don't need a lot. I'm not into figurines and collecting stuff. However, when you have 8 other people in the house saying they want this and that, it's harder to rid of it. Ivy likes to have her 5 backpacks and 7 purses.
Homeschooling has been going well! Ivy has really struggled in the past but she is picking it up quick now. I really have finally accepted the fact that my kids are staying home with me. You have no idea (well, Christine does) of my ups and downs with wanting to homeschool. I remember my first try back in 2005. It was the worst 5 minutes of my life. Later on I tried again. I would homeschool one year and then put them in school the next year. I've finally gotten used to the idea and truly love having them at home, EVEN THOUGH I have two boys right behind me arguing as I'm writing this.
Good news! I've lost 10lbs in two weeks! Whoo hoo! I'm really loving the Paleo Diet.
