I'm trying to stick to my guns and stay off the computer lately. Yes, with homeschool kind-of started (lack of finishing touches on my planning is keeping us on a half-day schedule) and all these book fairs and online conferences, I'm finding that there is little of me to go around. Twitter, Facebook, and blogging are fun... but sleep is necessary - and so are the priorities. I wrote about not letting your priorities slide while you keep up your online presence over at the Homeschool Post. In case you didn't catch that article, it's a good one - especially in light of school coming up.
The good thing about my current distractions are:
1. The baby is twenty-thousand kinds of wonderful.
2. The online conference has been GREAT (and I plan to relish the audio files when it is over)!
3. The kids are helping to get organized and seeing the necessity in the process.
4. The real-life conferences I have attended are providing me with great pep-talks and a chance to get back in the 'groove' of homeschool mom after my mind has been pickled with pregnancy hormones and postpartum chaos.
Yep, I'm going to another REAL LIFE homeschool conference. This one is in Houston. Well, technically, it's in The Woodlands. And don't forget to capitalize your ' The '. I've been to a good many conferences in Texas, and this one is the one I haven't yet attended. I have been hearing great things and I happen to know a few bloggy faces that will be there. So if you are planning to attend the H-Town event, please give me a shout out and let me know!
In the mean time, enjoy your summer or your homeschool planning. August is upon us!
