Begin {Five Minute Friday}

Begin. Beginning something new for me is always exciting. Some times it's hard. Some time it is just fun. Some times it is planned and other times is just...happens.

begin...

Furniture started as a fun side hobby I was enjoying. I sold a couple pieces and we realized it could help up get to our vehicle savings faster so we upped the production. lol

I'm usually a very planned person. I feel more comfortable, confident, and calm when things are researched, thought-through, and weighed appropriately.

I love lots of things I've been a part of in years past, including but not limited to writing. I LOVE writing. It's calming. It helps me work through things I need to think about. Keeps me focused. Gets things out of my head and out of my way so I can go on and be more productive.

So why is it so hard to come back here and jump back in?

I have a million thoughts started. Part of me is nervous to finish the thoughts. Nervous I'm not going to state my thoughts correctly. Nervous I'm not going to have the "right" thoughts/opinions on a certain topic. Nervous I'm going to offend someone. Nervous I'm going to have to back peddle and retake missteps.

So, here I am. On a Saturday night, trying to write for just 5 minutes to get back on the horse. See ya again in a few when I climb back up here for the next ride if I don't get bucked off and badly injured ;)

Organizing You Home for Homeschooling with Lots of Littles

Having a set routine and knowing what do expect can help you feel at ease when the time comes to organize things like curriculum, supplies, and other clutter like toys.

Organizing You HOME for SCHOOL with Lots of Littles

I am so new at this homeschooling thing that I'm pretty sure I've come up with a new system every year. I'm sharing this years plan for organizing curriculum, supplies, and toys over at the Homemaker's Challenge. Head on over and see if I've lost my mind and will be changing to a new system yet again next year or if it's an okay idea that might help you get started. :D

Soon, I'll be talking about organizing our lives for homeschooling.

Five Minutes Finally

I want to write. I want to say something worth saying but some days my mind doesn’t get past the mundane of the day’s chores in the silence of nap time. Other days it soars with thoughts that surpass the diaper filled trash. Thing I want to shout through the waves of the net but alas, the time doesn’t come.

So, tonight, with the time AND too many thoughts to compile, I gave myself 5 minutes. Five minutes where I begin learning to write again. Typing down thoughts. Organizing words. Trying not to focus on what needs to be shuffled together for tomorrows day 3 of the Rothacher Academy but focus on shuffling my love of words on the lines of an empty post page.

Things I’d love to share about and maybe soon will:
tons of furniture redeeming
ministry thoughts
TV shoes
depression
homeschooling, with a baby, with 3 different grades, with different learning methods
organization
decorating
exhaustion
pets…and timing
budgeting, consignment shopping, grocery/menu planning
goals, priorities, stress, perseverance, and quitting

Night ;)
