Things are looking up!

I know I had a bit of whinge last post but it seems that just being aware of potential problems is enough to make you think of solutions and to be proactive in your attitude.

For this being my "worst" time of year I seem to be doing a whole lot better than last year.  I track our school days in Homeschool Tracker Plus.  Only the more formal type of school days get entered there.  I just don't have much interest or time to do journal type entries when more natural learning is happening.  And in review I can see that my 7 year old has done 3 times as many school days this term as compared to late last year, the 10 year old has doubled his school days and the 13 year old has gone down by 50%. 

Why does this look good overall?  After all the teenager is doing less.  But it is good, because the 7yo and 10yo have me work with them for everything whereas the 13yo is supposed to be working independently.  Just shows I am getting better but he still needs a lot more nudging (nagging?!).

I have been almost gobbling my sinus tissue salts and have drunk Coke before a headache gets really bad.  And I am talking to myself nicely too.  Amazing the difference in life when we treat ourselves better.

I am looking forward to even more improvement as I get the hang of being successful.  :-)

Best wishes
Jen
