A Few Thoughts

To blog or not to blog...that is the question...

Ha...it should really be..I have to wait for the hot water in the shower being that three large family members have already had showers.....and two of them take a really long time.

I should probably be folding laundry...never ending...but I already made sack lunches, so I figure I am good...for a few minutes....and the mctwins are still sleeping!

Everyday I am in constant amazement at the awesome wonderful women that surround me...that blog..that cook..that take care of their families...dress beautifully....look gorgeous..have babies....make dinners for their neighbors...are soccer coaches, run or bike 60 miles....I am tired just typing that...but you do it all!  And your homes are organized too!!!

How do you do it?!

So as you ponder that....let me tell you what I am pondering.....

Should I homeschool...yes....really...that is what I am thinking.

My sister is on board with me...that is important....

My husband, not so much...that is very important!

I am also pondering where we should live...and should I give up my dream of owning my little piece of farm pie for the sake of my kids getting a little more room to stretch their burgeoning wings and not having their mother all up in their business....all the time.  Though I think as a mother...that is my business.

I ponder how and when my milk will finally dry up...because my milk ducts are killing me! And will I survive this end of a chapter to my life saga.....my babies quit me...on their own...they didn't ask....just quit!  First mctwin #1..in Hawaii...I thought maybe it was too hectic....

Then mctwin #2...she picked up strep...and decided it was too painful to eat...she didn't even think what it would do to her poor mama!!! (and daddy....no touch, please!)  I can totally relate to the bawling cow when her farmer is late or her calf has run away from home! The agony.  .....and no...cabbage leaves didn't even work....

a week later...we are still goin strong....er ...rather...rock hard...I wouldn't weigh in with my sister....the milk jugs weight ten pounds each!

I wonder if you really see all the dust on my floorboards when you come over...or if you care...

I care...I just have time to get to them....and my kids did them...but they think that every other foot is fine.  It might have to be.

I think about how long until my mackdaddy can retire, so he can stay home with me all the time.  I miss having him all up in my business.

Oh, wait thanks for the reminder, I have like..... 20 more years......

Just a few thoughts that ramble through my mind.  I would like to hear your comments.  really..I would....well some of them...

love yer guts,
Painfully Engorged Deep Thinker

Oh man, I feel for you! Not that there is anything I can do about hard boobies but let me know if you think of something! also, I just got in touch with a friend of mine from high school, she has been homeschooling her kids for the past 3 years or so and she loves so many things about it, it was awesome to talk to her, if you would like to talk with her too let me know, she is super cool and would love to share how she makes it work, the way she described it it sounds wonderful!!
Good Luck!!!

I go back and forth about homeschooling all the time. Mostly because I just don't want to have to worry about the influences my kids will find on the playground and I won't have to worry if the teacher is going to inappropriately touch my kids. I worry about that stuff ALL the time, but I also worry that I wouldn't make that great of a teacher. I do know how to do educational field trips though...
BTW you're not the only one who wonders how all the other moms do it. I often wonder how you do it. love ya xoxo

You are an AWESOME momma! Some of us look at you and wonder how YOU do all you do! {{{HUGS}}}

As for homeschooling, you know who to e-mail, right? ;-) We've been at it for 11 years, and I love it. It's just one of those paradigm-breakers that make you look at education a little differently. A homeschooling momma can't and shouldn't do it like they do in public school. They're simply two different beasts, though each is good at what they do!

I'm here for ya, should you need me! ;-)

Yeah Renee, we all wish we could be the mom you are. But for reals, I found that a baby is just as good as a dog for cleaning up food that drops. At least Leah seemed to think so when Stone dropped half of his lunch on the floor. She was pretty excited about that.
