Again, my week went pretty good especially considering it’s March Break and the kidlets are home, and we had company 5 out of the 6 days so far.
As I mentioned last week, we have had a run of HUGE steps in our lives taking place all in the past month – in short, I decided to accept a proposal to discontinue working in ministry (they wanted someone full time and we mutually agreed that I just wasn’t happy anymore – it took me almost 2 years to reach that conclusion, i know, I’m slow).
We attacked our list of “problem areas” and as a result sold our small business that has been the bain of my existence for 2.5 years (thank you Jesus!) among other time consuming but necessary things in order to
SIMPLIFY LIFE which was our goal for 2011. Another is reaching the decision to Homeschool next year (September); which is a super big deal…and I’m still reeling. It was easy to begin attacking, cleaning and purging areas of the house in dire need like the office, the shed, the garage, the guest room…and alas, it opened up the can of worms known as “now all this room needs is…” Thank goodness April is just around the corner!
My March Goals Status:
a) Something that needs to be done daily (Stop, Start or Continue)
Stick to one time a day of logging on.
I have continued to stick with this and it’s been great! In fact a few days I didn’t log on at all! (gasp!)
b) One time practical project that needs to be knocked off the 2011 list.
Organizing the Office, primarily the Library
I did start it last week, and the library side of the office looks amazing. I also cleaned up the loft (aka sewing, gift wrapping, storage area)
c) Personal Creative Project
Compile file on Homeschooling Research; Continue Writing (Try Book chapter idea)
I feel like I can definitely tread water in the overwhelming tide of information on homeschooling that I’ve come across, and I’m doing OK, I feel like I CAN do this. In the personal writing area…well…I’ve still got a week. Seeing as I’ve been putting my emotions on hold all month (ie. I had to pack up my office, tie up loose ends, etc, deal with “leaving” after 17 years…and that’s just pertaining to my job!) I have a feeling April will begin the onslaught of “writing it out”.
