It is forty minutes after midnight and I am still up! I have been up since 5:30 this morning after going to bed past midnight AND getting up for a 3:30 a.m. change and feeding.
While I managed to get a lot done today, I think, I am so tired I doze off every time I stop moving. But alas, here I am blogging like I have no desire to go to sleep.
I did manage to force myself not to work on anything business today (although I did tweet twice) since technically we are closed today. I am trying to better focus on myself a little bit instead of always hustling and going. I did not do my best today but I am proud to have made an honest attempt. We celebrate the small victories too in this house.
#10 is smiling and giggling but heck, I would be too if someone carried me around 21 hours out of the day and had me latched onto a feeding tube, better known as my breast.
In my attempts to organize our new classroom, I forgot to teach, yes I get sidetracked sometimes. I am sure the children do not mind until they find out makeup day is Sunday which would bump house cleaning to Saturday.
I am in the process of making changes to the business and boy is it scary but it is time for me to take the leap. And by leap I mean dump more money into it in a more strategic manner.
I must admit that now is kind of tight. Its funny that although we do not celebrate holidays, no I am not a Jehovah witness, we still seem to feel the same financial drain as those who do around Christmas. Food stamps would be nice or a go fund me for some groceries. With 10 children to feed and a husband, I could only imagine our bill if we were not vegan. I have gotten to the point where I have a love-hate relationship with food. Mostly, I just don’t want it. I literally cook every meal, except on cheat days when they get a peanut butter and honey sandwiches with a piece of fruit for lunch but even then I am making almost two loaves worth of sandwiches.
I also need a go fund me account for the childrens activities. Ballet, soccer, gymnastics, karate, music lessons, and that’s only to name a few. I think at this point I can start my own recreation center and get funding for it.
Anyhow. Not much to check in, just trying to get a more consistent flow of blogging going.
