Cold weather means a lot of staying in doors. I don't have the biggest house on the block either, it can get cramped fast. When the kids have no way to run some energy off they get very cranky. From past post you may know that I did not have TV at all. Well we finally bit the bullet and bought a $10 set of rabbit ears. May I say I love you PBS, the Krat Brothers rock! Not to mention they are very educational. Also Word Girl and Word World is pretty cool too. Yes I let my kids indulge in some TV time for my own sanity. I guess I should step down from supermom and be plain mom again :) .
Homeschooling at this time of the year also means more fighting. They are bored with it and we can't use the sunshine to cheer us up to do our work outside plus we are still missing our time off that we had during Christmas break. Not to mention MY school work. I am coming near the end of the current class and that means REPORTS! One downside to online college is all of the writing. I type so many words everyday between forums, blogs, texts, and social networks that I should be much fast than I am. I am still waiting for the super power of instant typing to happen so I don't have to pay attention it will just do it from brain waves.
Anyways we are back home and trying to get back into our own routine. Just remember that even when things get stressful we always make it through it, even without super powers.
