On the days when all the homeschooling gets done and all the subjects are ticked off, my laundry is piled up to the ceiling and the dishwasher still needs to be emptied.
On the flip side, on days like today when the laundry is caught up...the grocery shopping is done, supper is prepped and my house is somewhat clean, no schoolwork was done at all.
There's so much on my to-do list, that it is often overwhelming and I just feel like climbing back in bed.
But trudge forward I must.
I need to keep trying to find the balance, as I'm sure many parents do, not just homeschoolers.
Are we trying to juggle too much, where inevitably one (or more) ball(s) will fall?
Will my children at the end of the day, really care that our kitchen floor was mopped or will it matter more that mommy didn't come see the puzzle they put together because she was too busy cleaning out the bathtub?
Such a balancing act.
Hopefully tomorrow, I'll get a little bit of this and a little bit of that taken care of and by the time bedtime rolls around, I will have felt like my day was productive somewhat.
