Tricky Schedule Edition


1. I managed tricky scheduling on Tuesday and gracefully was able to get 2 different children to 2 different sides of town at the same time, in a thunderstorm with a dinner of pasta salad ready to eat when we all finally made it home.

2. I finally got rid of some school materials that I was never going to use. I know this because I've had them for probably about 10 years and guess what? Never used.

3. I have decided not to attend the local homeschool conference this year. I really really want to go. I don't have my school money together yet, don't want to be tempted. I have another complicated driving situation on Friday afternoon that would be even more complicated if I tried to get out to Chantilly for any amount of time on Friday. Not to mention the very busy weekend ahead for us. I need to let it go. The sky won't fall if I'm not there. Staying home serves my family better this year.

Great list, and good job holding back and trusting your feelings. Great job on purging old materials too and all the carpooling and dinner...you are super mom!

Thanks for the inspiration!!

Yes, sometimes less is more; I keep trying to tell myself this too.
