Homemaking block

Man, I don't know what is going on. Monday- Wednesday I was busy as a bee, working happily at keeping my home and caring for the family, and then on Thursday- zap! Out of energy, out of motivation, out of patience etc. Just blah.

Did I overwork myself at the beginning of the week? What happened? Maybe if I made myself go to bed on time and got you know, more than 6 hours of sleep each night? Would that help? LOL

I have to admit, caring for 4 little people is hard. The actual care isn't hard, but basically I'm trapped here. And, it has been raining all week, which we need, but I've run out of things for them to do. If I need to run an errand or something, I can't because I have little ducklings following me :) People say, "Are they all yours?" and I say, "Most of them." I'd really blow their minds if I had a pregnant belly, which I could fake if I stuck my gut out really far and wore a maternity shirt, which I do still have and do still wear on occasion :)

However, my niece was able to get into daycare early, so today is my last day watching her. Next week my husband has a week of vacation, thank the Lord! Then the next week my little Leiah begins kindergarten and Alexa begins homeschool in the next few weeks. Next week we will be busy planting our garden and building the chicken coop, so I may not be around as much, however generally when I say that I post everyday, so take that with a grain of salt.

Maybe the break will help me re-establish my focus and get myself psyched up more. Maybe it's just the long summer...maybe I just need a nap...
