So, today is supposed to be wordless Wednesday (which I love) but for the first time in a long time, I am out of pictures. Well, maybe not totally out, but finding a series to share means I would need to sit down with the portable hard drive and pull something out of the unorganized mess for you guys… and it’s too much effort today!
That’s just how I feel lately. I’m just now starting to come out of the fog that is the first trimester of pregnancy, despite being fully established in the second. You know those women who love being pregnant? Yeah, that’s not me. I love babies but growing them is a whole different horrible ball game. Ha- and don’t leave me a comment about h0w much you love being pregnant, because I may just jump out from behind the computer screen and bite you.
Okay, I wont bite.
But I’ll think about it.
Want to know what is really funny? This is actually my easiest pregnancy to date (number four for the win). This is the first time I have NOT been diagnosed with Hyperemisis, and I have not ended up in the ER for an IV. It’s amazing. And also still hard. The sickness is still there, but I am unbelievably grateful to be a “unicorn” (my words) and still be able to wash my own hair for the most part.
Pregnancy still stinks, which then, by default means a lot of things are kind of stinky around here lately. Homeschooling has been rough. I am lucky that it is summer, so there is some relief for the guilt I feel at doing the bare bone basics. Essentially, we are doing only our reviews that we committed to, and math (because thank heavens for Teaching Textbooks being independent) and that is it.
From the title, I bet you thought I was going to share how to homeschool while pregnant, but I am not really sure how one would accomplish that with grace unless you have easy pregnancies. You know, the kind where you don’t live with your head in the toilet or your bum planted on the couch.
Maybe, in a couple months, I will come back to tell you, with a big, fancy series on how to survive homeschooling during pregnancy, but if I do, it will be long after the clouds have parted, the nausea has passed, and God willing, I will have forgotten how it feels to be miserable.
This post is whiny, and I am truly sorry for that, but sometimes a girl has to tell it like it is.
And now, to the point, Please, use the comments to tell me how your homeschool survives in seasons of difficulty? How do you homeschool when it’s hard?
