homeschooling is NOT glamorous
We're having a bad day. Last year when I was dropping off Jason at school I would feel all kinds of horrible guilt for having to drop him off after a bad morning. None of us are morning people, so getting ready in the morning is difficult. Cameron currently has a cold, so she is not sleeping well, is grumpy, whiney and altogether miserable. She needs a lot of attention, but also we have to maintain a level of discipline in the house, so that makes for a rough morning. Jason isn't sleeping well because he has to share a room with Cameron. Last night we let him sleep out on the couch (again) and he had a horrible time trying to fall asleep... I think he was still awake well after 10pm. I had crazy pregnancy dreams all night, my usual hip pain and difficulty staying asleep. I'm trying to be positive about our morning though, because at least we have the luxury of putting everything aside, praying about our situation, taking a recess, and starting over. So that's what I'm off to do now, start over. I'm glad I don't have to wait to pick Jason up at 2:45 to start over and try to salvage the day.
