What I've Been Up To...

I've been having a lot of fun the past few days doing different things. I got in a "crazy" organizing mode over the holiday weekend. I spent hours & hours (with lots of help from Alexandra) organizing... Alexandra's toys in her bedroom (and we found her Nintendo DS which we thought was lost!), under my sink, my husband's sink, Alexandra's sink, and the downstair's bathroom, 2 medicine cabinets, the 2 "junk drawers" by the phone, and part of the garage. I finally got "burned out" Monday afternoon and was ready to collapse.... but it felt great! We have TONS of trash to take out today and I already dropped off 4 or 5 bags of stuff to donate.

On Monday afternoon, I joined a gym! I haven't exercised much in 3 years (since I started homeschooling) and I went to my first class last night. IT FELT GREAT!!! Since my health problems last month, I really did it "light" in the class, but I was still sore last night. And, I was so glad Alexandra "begged" to go to the Kid's Club (play area) and really enjoyed it! I was going to try and go just when my husband was home or she was in classes. At least for now, this looks like a fun time for both of us. I can't wait to get "back in shape." Today, I go for my "initial assessment." Yikes! But, at least I'll know where I started from...

Also, in the past few weeks, I haven't wanted to break for summer. There is just so much we 'want to' and 'need to' do. But, now I'm SO ready for a break!!! I can't wait to just spend some time sleeping in (well, actually I'm not much of a sleep in type of person - but I can let Alexandra sleep in and enjoy some quiet reading time... or computer time!), swimming, going to museums, etc, without the nagging in my head that "we should be doing school."

Lastly, I'm really considering switching to more of a Classical method of homeschooling next year. Does anyone do that? And, could I ask you some questions if you do? Thanks!

I tend to lean classical but you are years ahead of me. I find great inspiration and resources from Jessica at

She was very classical but is now starting to add some CM. Check her out.

Hey! Now that you've organized your house...... can you come do mine? It's a mess!
I'm with you as far as the fitness thing goes. I need to get moving too. I'm thinking that this summer, with no schooling, I'll try and take some 'me' time. Maybe I'll start walking or something.
You've inspired me!
