Welcome to Camp CJ! That's right, it is me this year with my three children. Can I tell you that fun in the sun is hard work and exhausting. I vowed this year that I would not let the kids sit in front of the TV and play computer or video games all day long. So the four of us (five on weekends with dad) have been out and about. Everyday. Playgrounds, playdates, rollerblading, swimming, and trips to the mall and grocery stores thrown in for good measure. This week it will be hiking, museums, playdates and mommy led guitar lessons.
In between all of this frolicking through the city, I have to try to keep the apartment clean, do laundry, work on my online vintage shop, work with my daughter's cooperative school and try to get some writing done. As a good friend says, "OY!"
To you parents who home school, I am awed by you. Do you get anything else done? You mommy writers that I see with updated blogs and new projects rolling out - how??? I am not just talking about time management skills, of which I have little- but how do you keep the momentum, the discipline, and the inspiration going? Especially when you are exhausted.
