Getting a good night’s rest: It’s something really basic but it’s often overlooked. If I don’t get enough sleep then I’m dragging the next day.
Taking breaks often: Flying solo means that I burn out really quickly. I have to force myself to take breaks during the day and during our school year to regroup and refocus
Asking for help when I need it: I’m a true control freak so this has been most difficult for me
Grace, lots of grace: No one person can do it all. It’s taken me a long time to get to a place where that’s okay for me. Sometmes, like tonight, the dishes just don’t get done.
My homeschool doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s.
There’s a little bit of my story. How to you manage the craziness of your life?
